Until The Puck Drops

 I can't wait for the break. As a Wings fan it's either, "I don't feel like talking about it," or, "There's so much to talk about." For now I'll take the former.... At least until the puck drops tonight......

It's a Live Blog.

That is tragically comical.

These players may have reached their full development, that’s the sad thing.

I was trying to figure out their prunes, like maybe when they were old, but that didn’t make any sense.

Team never gets better, only seems to play decent against teams with a similar style. What do all these players have in common, Blashill. This rotten defense isn’t a new revelation, just varying amounts of terrible play.

My question is: Are they learning in this environment? It doesn’t appear they are. Some could argue 4 years is a long time for development.

Why isn’t board battles won and lost not a stat? It is such a telltale part of who is Winning a game.

Hey all.

Just turned the game on then off after i.saw the score. Holy jumping jeepers! These guys suck!

This is one of the things I wonder if Blash has the team practice on? Since Blashill’s arrive all these teams lose off the boards and lack of forecheck. Sad

They need to request they bring in the emergency goalie in the arena that hasn’t suited up since he was back up goalie at Renssalaer.

For Kate:


When you’re down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend

Still 33 minutes to play, plenty of time for a six goal comeback win.

Well, at least by watching the game on the Fox Sports Go app on my Roku, I’m not being subjected to this #**#** Xfinity commercials….

Yup. Own goal, that’s it. Thanks! smile

Hey look, we almost have one tonight… is that breakaway from the penalty box close enough to call a shorty? It sure had that “kick in the jewels” feel like a shorty…

It’s not as if I couldn’t find several other things to watch, but this is akin to the not taking your eyes off a train wreck.
