Only one week after Brad May and Annabelle Langlois were eliminated but earned a second chance through the judges' save, the couple was officially and irreversibly bounced from Battle of the Blades Monday night.
It was a bed of their own making. A night after committing a number of slips that earned them the bottom spot on the leaderboard, Canada agreed that Brad and Annabelle sucked way hard, and sentenced them to the Monday night skateoff. There, the couple made yet another mistake, botching the throw that was central to their performance, and earning their tickets home.
In other words, last week's judges' save accomplished absolutely nothing apart from needlessly prolonging this dreadful competition by one week. Was this to torture me? I wondered. I was briefly concerned that Brad and Annabelle were somehow going to get saved again, only to be eliminated next week, then saved again, and on and on until I realized I had been dead for a year and this was my Hell.
BEST OF MAXIM
Over the past two games, the Red Wings have gotten no points from their top line, or from their second one.
The Red Wings wanted better out of their special teams, out of Ty Conklin, out of themselves, basically, after being humbled by the NHL's best.
Detroit (5-1-0) are coming off a 7-1 pasting at DC. The Wings (playing the tail of a B2B) claim they held their own for the first two periods, and they did outshoot the Caps 26-14 through two frames. But the score at the end of two was 4-1, and the Wings gave up 7 goals on 25 shots. Please, do not ever put special and teams in the same sentence. Spin that contest however you...
It often takes a scare to make players wear a visor -- take Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who has worn one since getting hit near his eyes by a puck during the 2008-09 season. As in Pronger's situation, it was a fluke, with the puck going off then-teammate Marian Hossa's stick smack into Lidstrom's face.
