A2Y- Back In Action

12/28/2022 at 7:00pm EST

Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a nice Holiday break and are safe and warm. The Wings are back in action tonight in Pittsburgh after a longer layoff than was planned. One can only hope that the time off will be a good thing for this team. They last played against the Lightning, and are hoping to build on that win. They will face off against a Pens team that are coming back to home ice after a loss last night, which IMO, makes them a harder opponent to play against.

Jakub Vrana was assigned to GR for 3 games to get back into form which is great news, so, here’s hoping for some more Holiday cheer for Wings fans tonight……

It’s the Wings vs the Penguins. The puck is set to drop around 7:30 PM, and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also available on NHLPP/ESPN+ and ATTSN-PT.

Hola Katie. I trust you had a pleasant Christmas and saw the grandkiddies maybe. Time for the Wings to focus and start winning games again. L.G.R.W.

KateCalquake

Hiya Quaker. I did have a wonderful Christmas with the Grands. Being with them is always the best day so far. I hope you fared as well as I.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

Second attempt. Hi Kate since the Red Wings  are playing  in Crybabyville tonight, expect at least one 5 on 3.

Katebigfrog

Hey frog! It’s a given, eh? It seem to me the Wings have had to deal with a few 5 on 3s lately….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Neither rain, nor snow, nor……wait. Wrong profession…….😉

Kate

Yes! Mickey is in the house 😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Letang is in? Wow! He just recovered from another stroke in November. I’m am amazed.

bigfrog

0-1 Already as expected on a turnover.

Kate

Craptastic! Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Evenin’ Bitches!

Well that didn’t take long, eh?

Hope every reprobate had a fine time over the Christmas weekend.  Been a while for the boys in red and white and Pittsburgh shook the Rust off last night.  No, in fact there he is on the ice right now.

rwbillrwbill

He is from Pontiac.  If you grew up in Michigan back when, the words “Rust” and “Pontiac” just go together.

Kate

Craptastic! 2 to get back……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Hot mic😄 oh hell yeah…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Jerry Lundegaard says get the TruCoat.

Kate

Okay. That’s enough……  wake the fuch up!

bezukov

Ho ho ho bitches.  Three goals against is not what I wanted under the tree.  

I don’t know who’s got the air horn.   I’ve been watching five minutes and I already want to shove that thing where the sun don’t shine.  

Cigar-Nurse

Hola 19. Had a craptastic Christmas and tune in to see more here. Next 3 foals are huge. LGRW 

KateCigar-Nurse

Sorry you had a bad Christmas CN. This shit show isn’t what will make anything better….

bigfrog

0-4 A goal that shouldn't count, but it's Pittsburgh.

bezukov

Seen a lot of Detroit goals get waived over the years in this situation. 

rwbill

Sumbitch.  Time to put Ned back in and get him some game time.

bigfrog

Anyone surprised? I saw Crybaby sitting on top of a goaltender in the blue, knocking the puck in the net last week. Of course it counted.

Calquake

So here's the question. Are the teams we're losing to that much better or are the Wings just that bad?

Cigar-NurseCalquake

Hard to say. Shitsburg making up today after getting curb stomped yesterday 5-1. 

Calquake

Intermission Amusement: I recently fell asleep after reading all my magazines.

I woke up with back issues.

bigfrog

The Red Wings are just that bad. One consolation is after tonight the Red Wings don't play in Pittsburgh again this season. They play twice more in Detroit. Revenge?

utahgentile

Ned is in the crapper for something.  Can't remember the last time he was in net. 

rwbill

Yay Larkin!  Wings clost the gap to just 3!

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Larks. He yells “ let’s go”. 

rwbill

7:11 to go in the second.  Thank Heaven.

bezukov

The team is playing about as expected.  The first quarter of the season made it easy to feel like the guys were playoff bound.  We knew December was gonna be tough.  It’s not fun to watch, but expectations gotta be managed. 

bezukovbezukov

And I don’t think any of that is a bad thing.  The team needs to go through these times to get better.  

rwbill

Looked like a deflection in the goal!  Close the gap to just 2!

rwbill

Well that was an improvement.  Still a long way to go.

Cigar-Nurse

Wings need to remember last year when the Pens were up like 8-2 with 5 minutes to go and had a pp with Malkin and Rosby on a line scoring. Very douche move. 

Kate

Just shoot the damn puck!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Good bounce right to our guy, finally

Close the gap to 1 !

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Berggen. Him and Erne playing hard tonight wanting to stay with the big team when the veterans return soon.  

rwbill

Tie game Bitches.  

Perron is deadly there.

Kate

STFU Ken and Mickey!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Don’t effing panic! 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Perron ties er up. Keep grinding. Pens are wheezing now after playing yesterday. 

rwbill

Huge to get a point, at least, out of that.  That will stick with them.

Calquake

A point in Shittsburg. I'll take it.

Cigar-Nurse

To OT we go. Steal the other point guys. LGRW 

Kate

Walman! What an epic comeback! Yes Bitches!

LETS GO RED WINGS!!!!!

rwbill

That was an epic effort and character win.

Kate

I haven’t seen a game like this in years. Clawed their way back from a pretty big deficit. 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

As Kate said, an epic comeback! Later reprobates.

Kate

The last 5 goals were HUGE!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Wallman with the dagger.

It’s our Christmas miracle in A to Y land.  

I remember many years ago the Wings had a similar 5-0 deficit and won. Mr I was so happy that he bought big screen TVs for the team. 

Kate

Post game is great. Mickey is so calm and cool. Love his breakdown.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Until tomorrow. Have a good night 19. 

Kate

See y’all tomorrow.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!
