Thanks Paul!

Tonight there will be some contingent from The 19 there, including Borderline Racist F—khead Dougie and I.  Looking through ticketmaster’s Facebook flags there should be quite a few other Red Wings fans, as always.

3 games in 4 nights?  I’m already getting my Inner Mandingo on.

I am stoked to see our boys tonight, but something is fundamentally WRONG aboot tailgating at a hockey game,with 87 degree temps, and you have to worry aboot the deviled eggs spoiling before you can eat them all.

Deviled eggs and bitter beer. Gonna be an interesting evening for the folks sitting near me in section 114 tonight.

Let’s go Wings, you have lost the last 2 or 3 or 4 games played in Raleigh, and I have had to endure a lot of what passes for smack talk from the locals

MLive seriously asked if the Wings/Canes rivalry was “underrated”.

MLive is apparently now NBC Sports.

Get used to it. Every single team in the East is gonna try to push that angle in an attempt to fill seats. Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.
