Thanks to Plymouth’s own Chris Osgood, and his fellow Red Wings, on a helluva playoff run.  The Wings represent the Detroit area and the entire state of Michigan with class and dignity and they are amazing athletes that are fantastic to watch.

It’s kind of depressing that Ozzie will not be bringing the Stanley Cup to Plymouth this year, but there’s always next year.

Our local hero, Chris Osgood, has been great the last 2 games of the Stanley Cup Finals, but his team didn’t bail him out last night.  The series is tied 3 all and coming back to Detroit for game 7.

I want the Wings to win the Stanley Cup so bad I can taste and smell it.  Statistically they are overwhelming favorites, but stats don’t play the game, players do.  The Penguins can be great when they want to be.  Friday’s game could be a real nailbiter.

Whatever the outcome is, it has been great fun watching this team in yet another deep playoff run.  Chris Osgood has been spectacular and, if the Wings win, is likely to win the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP.)  Go Ozzie! Go Wings!  Bring the cup home again!

Some rather enterprising neighbors have found a really cool way to show their support for our Detroit Red Wings.   Take a look.

If you want to see the sign for yourself, the house is on Harvey between Linden and Wing.  You can’t miss it!

I’m very jealous.  This might be the coolest expression of team support by fans that I’ve seen.  Hats off to these folks.

OK, OK, it’s not the Stanley Cup, but some cool replicas made by enthusiastic Red Wings (I presume) fans have turned up in the neighborhood.  They’re hardly works of art, but they’re great anyway.  Man do I love this time of year.

Here’s to the Red Wings bringing home the real cup in June.

ozzieIt’s that time of the year again. It’s the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Our hometown hero — he lives on Penniman — Chris Osgood helped our Detroit Red Wings get off to a great start in these playoffs. The Wings beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 last night in the first game of round 1 of the playoffs.  Ozzie had 20 saves. I didn’t see the game, but I understand a few of them were quite dazzling.

Every year Red Wings fans wring their hands about the play of the goaltender in the post season. Last year the Wings struggled early when Dominic Hasek played poorly. He was replaced by Osgood in the first round and Chris ended up being perhaps the most important player in the entire Stanley Cup playoffs. He was spectacular. This regular season, though, Ozzie struggled a bit. He didn’t have a great season. But what counts around here is how you play in the playoffs and he showed signs last night that he returned to form.

Go Ozzie! Go Wings! Bring home another cup, will ya?
