A Solid Effort

10/31/2022 at 6:30pm EDT

The Wings bounced back the other night and pulled off a win against a decent Wild team. Every player worked hard, and Lucas Raymond scored twice, potting his first two goals of the season. There will be 19 of us hoping for more of the same all around solid effort tonight.

The puck drops at 7 PM, and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit Extra and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also NHLPP/ESPN+.

It’s a Live Blog!

KK 2.0 Update
The caching issue we were experiencing since launch appears to be fixed. You should notice new blog posts now appear for you without refreshing the page ad moving from page to page is much quicker.
Also, when you leave a comment, it now appears right in front of you instead of it landing at the top of the comments. This gives you the ability to edit or delete the comment quickly if needed plus it confirms the comment has been made.
A few more tweaks are coming but we had to get the caching issue under control first before moving to other items.

Looks to be working great PK !!  Posts and embed picture link worked like a charm, and immediately.

rwbill

A scary scary Owwwooooooooooo Evenin’ Bitches !

I had counted out Erne also but damn he’s grabbed his piece of cheese over the last several years.  Let’s see Veleno or anyone else claiming to fill the nets with pucks try to unseat him.

rwbill

Age is just a number?  Trying doing some deep knee bends!

I think she’s a bit old for me, my formula is half my age minus 7 years.  Most people say half plus 7, but why not go for the gusto.

rwbill

And by the way, the number she is looking for is USD$500,000.
And I actually don’t trust them.

Calquake

My predictions for tonight: Erne scores 5 goals, Hronek assists on all five and Husso gets a shut-oot from the bench. L.G.R.W.

rwbill

I’m at the end of my driveway trying to hand out Halloween candy but not many coming around tonight, so far.  Light sprinkle and cloud cover gives us an unusually warm evening.  If no one comes soon I’mma move inside and leave the front door light on and watch the game from inside. 

Katerwbill

Imma having this image of you asking “Do you want some candy?” as Karen Newman runs at lightning speed in the other direction…….😉😄😄😄 You know I’m just kidding RW😉

Let’s Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Heya y’all! I have no predictions for tonight. I’m a wait and see kinda gal.😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

CalquakeKate

I thought my "Husso gets a shut-oot from the bench" was a dead giveaway. I've learned not to predict. It only leads to disappointment.

rwbillKate

That makes sense, the Wings are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get, even period to period, and once in a while they reveal a rancid nut.

bezukov

Happy Halloween ya degens!   I like Adam Erne but having him on the first line is frightening. 

bezukov

Gotta give it to Luff.  If I got hit in the teeth by a 90 mph puck I’d still be whimpering.

Cigar-Nurse

Howdy 19. Looking forward to a good tough game against a worthy division opponent. Seider gets his first tonight. LGRW 

Cigar-Nurse

Working well Paul. Thanks for all the hard work. 

Kate

This is great Paul. Thank you.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bezukov

Buffalo keeps setting up shop.  We’re one and done so far. 

Cigar-Nurse

Michiganders don’t relocate to the snow belt. They move here and the sun belt. 

Cigar-Nurse

Bah. Elmer. Ya gotta hit these guys and stop the poke and hope.  

rwbill

Leading up to that goal was like a power play.  Could not get it oot.

Calquake

I see almost as much red as blue in the stands.

Cigar-Nurse

Time to change strategy. The dump and chase not working. Speed speed speed.  LGRW 

Calquake

Have you ever noticed how terms change as we get older?

A woman is not a waitress, she's a server.

A man is not a clown, he's a pedophile. Go figure.

bigfrog

They are still allowing Buffalo to cycle way too much.

bezukov

Uhhhh.  The wings are making these guys look better than they’re playing. 

rwbill

Someone waved Riley Sheahan? That’s a mistake to do that early in the season. He really really catches fire about game 81.

Katerwbill

I was thinking about Tinky as a comparison to Zadina before anyone mentioned his name. 
Spooky……..

rwbill

Owen Power has a +45 rating, with that team!!!!??

Cigar-Nurse

Just back from the traditional sloppy joe Halloween dinner. Quite appropriate for the sloppy d zone play. 

bezukov

I honor of the holiday, I want to take this chance to nickname Zadina: Casper the friendly ghost.  Just an invisible, non-threatening cold spot in the lineup.  

bezukov

Now I’m really gonna start drinking 

bezukov

Two Sabres left alone in front of Ned. Two easy goals against. 

rwbill

Sumbitch.  Seider gives up the puck there and nobody else in front of the net.

rwbill

OK I thought I was going crazy.

owen Power was +45 at Michigan.


however he is +3 with the Sabres, not an easy feat.

rwbill

Sumbitch.

Boys your goalie cannot stop an uncontested shot from 8 feet away.  Cripes.

bezukov

Buffalo is gonna win big off of a really tentative effort.  Shaking my head.  This is the team we should be measuring up against. 

Calquake

I've always liked the movie 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'.

Because it never gets old.

Cigar-Nurse

Keep getting interrupted by the trick or treaters. Missed the last 3 goals.  WTH?  

I believe it’s time to break up the Seider Chariot pairing. It’s not working oot as expected. 

rwbill

32 shots to 15. This really is reminiscent of last year’s team.

rwbill

Ned says JFC if you guys aren’t gonna put a body on somebody, I will

Kate

Cut across Shorty!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Larks with a gratuitous play from another Michigan alumni. Nice shortie.  One shot game now.  LGRW 

Kate

Seider is the man! Great keep in.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Well I shut off the computer and had given up on this game and then Larkin scores. I fell asleep in the second. i did notice Buff has painted boards not the techno annoyance ads.

rwbill

4 years and 2 days since Larkin’s last shortie.

rwbill

There are lots of empty blue seats there tonight.

rwbill

For sure, Kate, I was thinking today how I would get on my bike and take off for the afternoon as long as I was back around dinner time or before sunset.

Calquakerwbill

Always had to be home by the time the street lights came on.

rwbill

Sumbitch, after all those great saves.

Cigar-Nurse

Oh Ned. That shouldn’t have happened. 

bigfrog

3-6 Reminds me of last year. Same old same old.

rwbill

Oh are you Fuching kidding me, 6?

41 shots to 17 for this Buffalo powerhouse.

Cigar-Nurse

Jebus. If there wasn’t just 5 minutes left, he’d be pulled. Hell at this point,we may as well pull him for an empty net.  

bezukov

Well the Wings made an also ran team making an average effort look like champions.  Don’t like the one sided reffing either, but that’s beside the point.  Shitty performance.

bigfrog

3-7 Buffalo looks like a playoff team against the slow poke Red Wings.

Kate

I appreciate the Wings of yesteryear but the future is now. Celebrate today, not 25 years ago.

Kate

I can hardly wait to take on the Capitals.

bigfrog

3-8 May be the worst game of the season.

rwbill

8!!!!!

They might make 10 in the last 40 seconds.

Kate

Later19. Sorry, I can’t take it anymore……

Cigar-Nurse

What the hell. May as well give up 8. A snowman. 

rwbill

Good Lord is was 4:3 late in the period.

Cigar-Nurse

It was like they gave up after Ned gave up the crappy 5 th goal. 

Until Wednesday? Good night 19.
