Why is this game at 1:00 ??  No NBC coverage, so why at 1:00?? The first of many conflicts with piston games??  sick

Almost forgot this was an early game.  We’ll see what watching this year’s Wings team sober feels like.

I slept terribly last night, I guess in part because I knew this was an early game.

If we completely suck it up today, I’m probably going to go back to sleep.

LGRW!

If the boys in red keep the score in single digits, they have a .001% chance at winning today…

It’s a great afternoon for a hockey game.  L.G.R.W.

Late for the game, perhaps early for the funeral. wink

I was just thinking “who are these guys” watching a great PP movement and then - boom - goal against and remembered.

Lots of good jump by the Wings so far in this game. Just need to come out flying in the second. No let downs.

Yeah, have looked good for the most part minus a few hiccups.  Really need to take advantage of their chances, though.

I thought we looked pretty good in the first, for the most part. A couple lazy plays here and there, but still don’t look half bad.

Whoever or whatever changed on the PP strategy seems to have been a change for the better…

Howdy bitches. So good but non productive pp and down by one.

That was a pitiful attempt by E52. It looked like he half-assed it.

Are we sure Tarasenko didnt shoot that?

He might have got a stick on it, but he wasn’t the shooter.
