Nicklas Lidstrom: Not only the Captain of the Detroit Red Wings, but Lidstrom is also favored to win his sixth Norris Trophy--awarded to the best defenseman in the NHL. A win would move him past Defensive Great Ray Bourque and give him sole possession of 3rd place among the all-time winners of the Norris Trophy.

EXPERIENCE MATTERS

Experience Is Everything. All eight Red Wings pictured in the background have hoisted the Stanley Cup over their heads previously as champions. Four of those pictured and six overall have been a part of three Detroit Stanley Cup Winning Teams. Detroit is half way to its eleventh championship as a franchise.

Thanks to Chris Osgood's stellar goaltending--he's only the fourth goalie ever to begin the Stanley Cup Finals with two shutouts--and awesome defensive play and puck possession by the entire Detroit team, Detroit enjoys a 2-0 lead in this best of seven series. Game 3 begins in Pittsburgh at 8:00 pm tonight, and will be televised on NBC.

Thanks for reading.

Back to vote for you in your Battle of the Blogs...good luck to you and to the Redwings in their Battle! It's about 8:30, so the hockey has started (and so has the Cheetah Girl movie here in New Jersey!)

Some really great photos here...and fun mock posters...But for a Wordless Wednesday, you certainly had a lot to say (ever so subtly instigated through the use of clever graphics and imagery)...heh, heh...

Rox, thanks for the well wishes...wings lost 3-2...you knew Pittsburgh would be up for it though.

Henson me boy, that's why I call the post: "Almost Wordless Wednesday," thanks for the recognition of my cleverness!
