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.

It's a Live Blog!

Why don’t oysters donate to charity? Because they’re shellfish

Why didn’t God make a second Yogi Bear?

He tried but made a Boo-Boo instead.

Finally had time to see that captain video that took place before the last game. Very classy. I figured oot why the loss though. Whenever TPH is in the building, we seem to lose.

I’m afraid even with the night vision goggles looking past the restraining order I haven’t been able to find her.  It’s possible like everyone who reaches a certain stage in their life they get retired.

I certainly hope, if true, that it was her decision.

I had not heard that he was hurt and was surprised he wasn’t playing They could have used his skating in the OT
