One Game In

There are many positives to take from the Wings first outing this season. Six goals scored, plenty of action, fast paced. T-Bert had a great game. D-Boss scored the first goal of the season to get it started, then was nailed from behind by a nasty, dirt bag hit.
The youngsters looked very good as well. We all know what happened after Larkin got hit so no need to go into that.

That being said, the Wings are only one game in, in a very long season which Wings fans hope will be very entertaining, and most likely exciting. Game two tonight. I'm all in.

I am officially a fan of our power play.  How long has it been since it felt like this?!?

Nedeljkovic played too aggressive last game and it burned him. Greiss looks more relaxed letting the play come to him instead of over reacting.

+19 Cal. I just don’t understand this gambling obsession. We watch games for our pleasure. That’s all gone when you have money on the line. How many people really have the money to lose?

With home games on Satiurday’s moved up from 7:35 normal start time they’re usually in intermission for nine o’clock.  If Manon sang it instead I’d watch for sure.

The people you’d least expect to lose are the ones who get caught up in it.

I agree wholeheartedly. I really dislike the sports gambling promotions. It cheapens everything.

Blashill red on the face. Good. I think all the talk in previous years about players not respecting him was a fking joke anyway, but that and the presser about Larkin last game show us a team thats behind him.

Checked to the head with his back?  I don’t know that there was a penalty there even though his head hurt.

As far as this garland hit, its tough in a lot of ways. His elbow wsnt up. But I thought DoPS set the standard years ago about trying to go for the puck in a 50/50 situation and not the hit. This would stop situations like this - zadina reaching for the puck while garlands goal is to blow him up.

Dangerous but not suspendable hit. Hate to say it, but I believe the refs got it right. Hope Z is ok.

I think the Vancouver guy thought about elbowing Zadina, but you can’t penalize a guy for his thoughts.
