Going For Three

Tonight the Wings will be going for three consecutive wins for the first time this season as they faceoff against the Cawks. We will also have two new faces in the lineup. Jakub Vrana and Richard Panik will make their first appearance wearing the Winged Wheel.
The addition of the new players is part of the Yzerplan, which saw Anthony Mantha moved to the Capitals in what seems to be a pretty good move by the GM. Only time will tell. 

Speaking of time, it's been thirteen years since the Wings won the Cup, and, only one player from 2008 is still on this team. Good old Darren Helm.

Hola all,

Thanks Kate. I know I have been missing in action, but a lot going on of late for me in the fam.

No Mantha but plus 2 (maybe more after the draft).

Lets go Wings!

Go Vrana. I hope someone Kronwalls Keith.  Sorry if I jump in and out.  The pirated stream I have makes it a PITA to switch back and forth

If you cover one eye, and squint, Vrana kinda looks like Federov ... twenty years ago.

I think he’d make more saves if he controlled himself more.
