Excitement Is In The Air

Red Wings fans have been unexpectedly surprised at the huge differences between last season and this year's team. Tonight will be only four games in, but, I think it's safe to say excitement is in the air, along with some pretty decent hockey being played right now.
We all know there is still a long road ahead, but, this young Wings team is certainly fun to watch. I say, keep er' going boys!

The Flames are coming in cold, looking for their first win of the season, and, we all know they've burned us plenty in the past few seasons. Here's hoping the youngsters cans douse the Flames tonight.

It's a Live Blog!

Every girl wore some kind of skirt or dress when I was in high school, some were very interesting indeed.

Impressions through 2 periods:

Wings appear just a step slow and losing more puck battles than winning.

With the understanding that it’s early days still. Rasmussen at 6’4” has gotta start winning more scrums along the boards. Not nearly though enough in my opinion.

Just being a grandparent is the greatest thing I can think of. You’re lucky you’re on the younger side. It didn’t happen for us until we were 57. But, it sure makes you feel young again!
