Growing Pains

After what many considered a great start to the season, the Wings are having some growing pains. It was expected. No one likes to watch their team lose, and, we don't have that expectation when we tune in to watch our team play. Any normal fan is thinking that their team has as good a chance as any to pull out a win. We're not quitters, and, we expect the guys we root for aren't either.

It's a Live Blog!

HSJ tweet,

Jeff Blashill said yesterday he might have to break up 1 & 4th lines ... in warm-ups, Mantha & Larkin with Helm, Bertuzzi with Nielsen & Athanasiou. Abdelkader with Hirose & Filppula and de la Rose with Ehn & Glendening as Red Wings face Flames.

PP at least looked halfway decent first couple games even though they weren’t scoring, but it’s really starting to look like ass…and they’re still not scoring.

That first lint took about six months to develop chemistry and we’re going to successfully blend lines in a few shifts.
