Baptism By Fire

There's nothing much to be said about the worst team in the league. I did read something about the Wings being "uniquely bad" whatever that means. Tonight's lineup will include the newest member of the Wings. Eric Comrie, a much needed goaltender and very nice person from what I've read about him. I wish him the very best and success tonight in his first full game with his new team, and, in the future if it all works out. With the current lineup, I'm thinking it will be a baptism by fire....

Cholowski is a frady cat - he could have stood up to those guys but slid away instead.

0-1 Should be goaltender interference, but it will count. It’s the Red Wings. angry

Should of been blown dead but we know the rules change if your team name starts with a d and ends with a t.

Forget blowing it dead how can they allow the goalie to be smacked in the face twice with a stick then have his arm shoved into the net? I’m all for losing but that’s awful reasoning for allowing a goal.

Evenin’ Reprobates!
I was making some bubble n’ squeak during the first period and didn’t post.  On that WPG goal I would have liked to have seen the late arriving Zadina, as opposed to sliding daintily alongside the goal scorer and try to outstick him for the puck, just plow into him and level him instead of letting him stand there and poke the puck.

Right you are Kate, I wish Ken Daniels would stop apologizing for things “ we shouldn’t have heard “ , criminy, it’s a hockey game with some emotion, no apologies needed, let us hear it.

FSD sent a ruddy John Keating to San Diego in December to cover MLB, good gig for him and I don’t mind him NOT being in a Wings broadcast.

Now the team is LOSING goals!  They put up the first six shots of the game with an energetic ten minutes, then gave up the next ten shots, and now they’ve managed to lose a shot on goal down to five.

Ehne with a goal in 23 games, at that rate he is one of the team’s most prolific scorers.

Since the first few minutes of high flying domination, the Wings have been outshot 21-4.
