Time To Start Winning Boys

Paul here for Bill who as we know is a busy man and probably a bit pissed-off too.

I was going to post an old video of the Wings playing the Capitals but decided against it because it just isn't enjoyable watching some old highlights when your team needs a win.

Let's hope the Wings can get on a roll starting tonight.

In their next 22 games through the end of the year, they play 12 at home, 10 on the road and the longest road trip is to South Florida, twice.

They play 3 Western Conference teams, Nashville twice and Anaheim once.

They play four sets of back-to-back games but the hardest one is with the Wings at home for both games against the Pens and Bolts.

19, hmm, 19 games against the East through the end of the year.

Go ahead and check the schedule.  Looks favorable, very favorable, so now is the time to start collecting points, 2 per night.

Time to start winning boys, everything is in your favor.

 

 

Oh, it's a live blog b#$&$#s!

Hah, not your fault at all… we should expect it by this point.

Keep bringing that Swedish enthusiasm; we’re gonna need it.

I was going post requesting a feed to watch the game but, based on what I’ve read so far, maybe I should just clean the cat box.

As long as it’s not akin to the “oh thank God!” uttered by that rowboat joker in the hold of the Exxon Valdez when the flare hits the oil in Waterworld.

Agreed 100% - just thinking back a few years to when we all we wanted was to see the last of him. Still hoping some of the current whipping boys will come ‘round and we’ll have the same reaction smile

Problem with Quincey: he’s not getting any better.

Problem with Smith: he doesn’t seem to understand how to NOT *#$%@& up.

At least E-52 showed signs of progression early.

Yep - he also had some incredible role models in the line-up! Still hoping Smith and Quincey will turn it around, not a great deal of hope though….

Is it just me, or is it somehow less satisfying when a Wings goal is scored by Franzen?

Holy shit, Tats and Mule showing some juice together.

And now Franzen will go on one of his patented “10 goals in 10 games” streaks and “justify” his contract.

Nope. Right there with you, brother.

2-1 lead into the 2nd? Who’da thunk it?
