There’s A Game Tonight, Right?

It’s gotten to the point of actually dreading Wings game's lately. They manage to get worse with each passing game. I understand injuries, lack of elite talent, no D, and yes, bad goaltending. That still doesn't get the coaches off the hook either.  Many of us have watched all of the worst of the Wings teams of the past, and this group has some better players than on previous bad Wings teams, but, this is some of the worst hockey in forty years. Bar none.....  

It's a Live Blog!

Ain’t it the truth. Thanks Katie. Let’s hope it’s a great night for a hockey game. L.G.R.W.

Thanks Kate for putting this up!

I’d like to think Stevie will address (some) of our deficiencies in the offseason. If we can see how bad things are, I’m positive he can see it. I’ve got faith in our Captain, after all.

LGRW!

It’s not easy… especially with Howard in net and Oldsuck on TV… but I’m here until the very end… or the score gets out of hand.

Pete Wallner tweet,

Oh, oh. Moritz Seider checked hard in corner by Colton Beck, goes down in a heap and helped off the ice. Bent over so hard to tell what he injured, but hit left shoulder going into the boards. Straight to dressing room.

1) Since I’ve yet to visit the Pizzarena, the Xcel Center remains the premier arena in the NHL in my mind.

2)  I hope you all join me in watching your favorite Monty Python movie or sketch(es) after the game in celebration of the life of Terry Jones.

True, but at least back then a ticket to JLA was $15, a beer was $1.75, and you had your choice of where to sit…. tongue laugh

Whoever is the highest bidder for US broadcasting rights (assuming the league decides to go with another network), I sincerely hope they don’t bring in the same people NBC has.

Way to go Bert.

Go back to beer DRD… Wallner,

Stand down. Moritz Seider just returned to the bench and back on the ice. Remarkable recovery, I guess.
