With no NHL games last night, let’s take a little break for the lighter side of things.
There are some really great costumes here. My favorite is probably the PK Prince costume. Which one is yours?

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE SCARY: A LOOK AT THE NHL'S BEST AND WORST LINES - By: Dom Luszczyszyn | The Hockey News
Dom has put together two of the scariest lines in the NHL. One line is scary good, and one is scary bad. Take a guess which one is on our team.
Hint: it’s the OMG line.
Since their reunion they haven’t been as bad as that first night, but for the season they’re still all comfortably at the bottom of Detroit’s Corsi leaderboard. All three are currently posting a shot attempts percentage below 40 percent, with Miller being the worst offender at a shocking 37 percent. Other than Danny DeKeyser at 39.3 percent, the next worst Red Wing is hovering at 43.
He then addresses something we’ve been talking about here which is that even though we won six in a row, there are troubling numbers that indicated it wouldn’t last, which we may be already seeing.
Despite having the worst line in hockey, the Red Wings are off to a surprising 6-4-0 start. Still, they haven’t looked very good in the process, and the OMG Line isn’t helping that. A team that was once a puck possession powerhouse, sits third last in score-adjusted Corsi at 46.3 percent according to Corsica and it’s only a matter of time before their record starts reflecting their play.
We’ve certainly spent a good amount of time talking about our fourth line, so it’s interesting to see an article from someone outside our fan base.
