A Fresh Start

10/15/2022 at 6:45pm EDT

One game is just that, one game, but last night’s game looked like a fresh start for one and all. Lalonde and his staff continued to make the necessary adjustments throughout the game. Soderblom was the pleasant surprise scoring his first NHL goal in his first game, the first goal of the new season, as well as the GWG. My, my, how sweet that is. Not to mention a great job by Husso as well.
So many players were playing the right way, it’s just a lot to take in in one outing, but, I am cautiously optimistic since the roster has changed a bit. Tonight’s game is on the road, so a different test. This group of young players, with a few of our core guys still around, and a smattering of vets look formidable.

It’s Wings vs Devils. The puck drops tonight at 7 PM on Bally Sports Detroit, and, the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket). Also, NHLPP/ESPN+ and MSG.

It’s a Live Blog!

Suter in for Veleno the only change it appears. Ned has some real competition in net now.

Its so nice to have more than one line on this team.

Kate

😉 Mickey and Ken tonight.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

The Red Wings are going undefeated in 2022-23!!

Thanks Kate

rwbill

Try again just in case it didn’t go through.

Evenin’ Bitches! Was juggling 3 devices for a few minutes. I wasn’t incredibly impressed with the team D last night as there were still a few turnovers but not ever present as before. Really liking Soderblom, and him mom.

Kate

The biggest line in hockey history. Yzerman goes big…😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

That’s quite a transformation for the Wings.  For years they’ve been getting pummeled with size.  The thing abooot Soderblom and Ras is they also have pretty good hands, don’t know about Quist.

Collectively, if that line scores 50+ goals I'll be a happy camper.

Kate

They need to tighten it up, and,loosen it up.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Why should you never trust atoms?

They make up everything.

Howdy redolent reprobates! I’m too cheap for ESPN+, so I’m just following the LB. Hopefully, we’ll play some meaningful games in May that require hauling Hasek out of storage.

The Nickname for the big line is the "Redwood" line

End of the period  Everyone drink!

Cigar-Nurse

Congrats to the Wolverines and Sparty for wins today. Hopefully,the Wings will follow suit.  

Cigar-Nurse

Howdy Captain.  There is free center ice now for a limited time. 

rwbill

Wow huge saves by Ned !  Need that to stay in the game early.

rwbill

Goal!  Ride that chariot to the playoffs.

Cigar-Nurse

Swing low swing Charot. Seeing eye shot.  LGRW 

rwbill

Ned keeping some turnovers out of the net.

rwbill

Sumbitch!  More porous defensive positioning.  

Calquake

I know it'll take some time but not overly impressed with Perron so far.

rwbill

The concept of ‘taking care of our own end first’ is in serious question tonight.

rwbill

C’mon you turds you’re giving up continuous Grade A chances.

Cigar-Nurse

Lil Bert done for the night. Hope nothing serious.  

Cigar-Nurse

Peron with a nice caused turnover by Copp. 

rwbill

Sweet Sassy Molassey!!!!  Last second goals like Datsyuk and Zetterberg were out there!

rwbill

Ned gets first star and second star of the game so far.

Cigar-Nurse

Way to go Larks beating the buzzer.  Another assist by Copp. All the newbies contributing tonight.  Yzerplan dividends.  LGRW

Evening bitches. Looks like I've missed a hell of a game so far

Calquake

A long time ago I worked with a guy named Butch (he wasn't well liked). At our office while we were gathering for a meeting a co-worker walked in and said, "Hey Butch, someone wrote your name in the dust on your car but they misspelled it."

bigfrog

Late to the party, but Red Wings doing well with a 4-2 lead despite being out shot.

rwbill

If my math is right, the Wings are 4x as efficient as the Devils in converting shots.

Calquake

It will come with time but I'd like to see Lurch be a little more aggressive in the offensive zone.

bigfrog

Hi gang, it looks like my posts aren't showing up.

Paulbigfrog

Work in progress with caching the comments.  Progress being made, tonight was better than last night.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBahbigfrog

They will - give it about 30 sec and then refresh the page.

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Kubalik. Keep the skate to throat.  

rwbill

I haven’t counted, or can remember anyone’s name including my own, but are all 8 goals by different players, and none of them Lucas or Seider?

rwbill

This is a very good start to the season.  4 points going on 88 .

Kate

WE WIN, Yay!

Next game 19.😊☘️
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Another win - Undefeated!!!

Calquake

Good game. Can still get better. Later reprobates.

Cigar-Nurse

Nice road win after a little shaky start. Until Monday. Gnite 19.
