A Classic Matchup

Ah yes. Tonight's game features a classic matchup between two Original Six teams. Detroit vs Montreal. It's always exciting whenever these two storied franchises face off against each other.

I'm expecting the winless Habs to throw everything they have and more at this young Wings team. We had better be far more prepared than we were the other night. Just sayin......

It's a Live Blog!

It’s a great night for a hockey game (with or without Bert). Thanks Katie. L.G.R.W.

Busy time getting ready for Winter.  But now it is time to sit back, and enjoy listening to the Winged Wheel.

LGRW!

So the Habs are winless…over the last several years I would expect to see them looking like Stanley Cup champs against the Wings. 

For some reason the team feels different this year.

Maybe the yoke of a dozen awful contracts has brought them new life?

Montreal is desperate, and it seems the Red Wings are not. confused

No one knows why Hronek is scratched, could it be Covid protocol?

To be fair, Hronek hasn’t looked good this year, especially that game against Calgary… so perhaps the scratch is simply to give Stecher a chance.

Evenin’ Bitches !

What a dart by Larkin!  Some reason I stuck with the Canadian SN broadcast.  We take the lead so I don’t want to change the Karma.

Thanks for the set up Kate and Paul.

Sometimes you just need a game in the press box to think about things….

SN broadcast just showed the opening night LCA photo of Larkin with all the captains and said “That just gives you chills to see all those captains.”

Also that the Wings are the only team that puts the “C” on the right chest and not over the left.
