Moving Four-ward

We all know what it takes to win in this league. Some skill, talent, determination, decent coaching, pride, and a bit of luck too. Some nights the Wings seem to possess those attributes.

Keeping that in mind, on any given night, the Wings always have a chance to win.

19 of us, loyal beyond comprehension will be watching tonight, and, hope the Wings will keep moving four-ward.

Hope is our gig. Winning is their job.

It's a Live Blog! Bitches!

It’s like we got the first goal, and stopped playing.

They’re getting a lot of work on their defensive zone exits…..only because they keep fooking em up

questions for discussion:

why does a 1-goal lead seem ... “more comfortable” than that 2-goal lead?

I honestly don’t feel comfort in either. Three plus goals with under five left in the third, and I can relax. Until then, I’m curled up in the Hasek with a bottle of gin in one hand, and a bottle of vodka in the other.

Up to 11 now, but yeah hard to get shots when you’re in the defensive zone 10 times as much as the offensive zone
