Prepare For The Worst

As a staunch Wings fans it's very hard to be optimistic about anything after these last few games. All the good things we thought we saw in the first few games were just a mirage, I guess. It's getting harder and harder to watch this team completely fall apart after the decent finish to last season, and, the somewhat hopeful beginning to this one. There is plenty of blame to go around for sure, but, it all starts behind the bench. We are facing a Oilers team that has looked very good so far, so prepare for the worst, if you decide to join in tonight. 

It's a Live Blog!

Thanks Kate. It’s a great night for a hockey game. L.G.R.W.

If I read it right, the Wings have scored 4 while giving up 15 goals in the last three games. Not a recipe for success .

Evenin’ Bitches !  Been around this week enough see the train wreck, just not enough motivation to lean over and find the blog.

In fact I was watching coverage of the Sinaloa cartel shooting it up on the big TV last night with the game on the sofa most of the time.

Team needs better defensive and positioning, occasional game saving goal tending, and scoring more goals.  But other than that they’re pretty close!
