Abel to Yzerman

Larkin Leads The Way

Tonight's game is against another tough opponent. Any time you face the Caps you know it's no cakewalk. The ever present Ovechkin is going to be more than enough for this young team to deal with. Also there's former Red Wing Anthony Mantha in the lineup. This time around imma hoping for a lot more floating.

The Wings are coming off a win against a Cawks team that has had a bad start. Not to diminish the win at all, but, as all 19 of us know all to well, in the recent past we would've folded against the Cawks. This time around, with Larkin leading the way, we handed them a loss. And it felt great!

Last time I checked, Hronek is back in the lineup, so I'm hoping for a good all around showing from him. Let's hope Raymond continues on his path of being in the right place at the right time (Hattie!), T-Bert still being on fire, as well as the youngsters(Seider) still playing big minutes and being good at it.

It sure feels good to be excited for Red Wings Hockey once again!

It's a Live Blog!

Howdy Katie, this place is becoming my refuge from the batshit crazy outside world. And for that I owe you profound gratitude. As CN would say, “Keep ‘er Going”.

Thanks, Kate.  Won’t be able to watch at the moment, but here’s hoping we’ll stand up against the Washington Tom Wilsons.  This is gonna be a real test.

Go Wings.

I normally don’t hesitate to trash Sinclair Broadcast Group, but wtf is up with that Caps graphic? Can your interns not even use the Fill tool in MS Paint?

Stopped skating and held feet together as he fell over conveniently. Should have been an even up 2 for embellishment.

Can’t let a 700 plus goal scorer have 2 cracks at it. Mo will learn.

Apparently I missed Ovechkin’s goal. I’m sure I’ll see replays of it ad nauseam, so I won’t bother asking how it happened.

Well I watched half of that period On capitals broadcasting and as usual they were very praiseworthy of the wings. But then I did find a Detroit broadcast in time to watch Erne pointing down to Ovechkin Seider didn’t seem so he’s all alone, the one guy you don’t want to leave alone.
