A2Y- Consistency

01/14/2023 at 6:30pm EST

Hello to one and all. I am pretty sure there are 19 pleased Red Wings fans right about now, but, nervous nonetheless. The Wings pulled off what was a surprising win against the Leafs last outing, and we all want to see the same level of confidence, and, consistency. Well, these are the Wings we’re talking about here, so, anything can happen………

It’s the Blue Jackets vs the Red Wings. The puck drops around 7:00 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 BSOH.

It’s a Live Blog!

Kate

A belated congratulations to Mickey Redmond. 52 years and one day ago, January 13, 1971, Mickey became a Detroit Red Wing and has never looked back. All the best to Mick,and I’m truly hoping for many more years of enjoying the Wings with him…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Manon is still friendly with the crew. Nice to know..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Evenin’ Bitches.!

Thanks for the LB Kate. And hello to all you reprobates.

Cigar-Nurse

Hola 19. The wolverines just beat the suckeyes 4-2 an hour ago in a hockey game. Keep er goin Wings.  LGRW 

rwbillCigar-Nurse

Oh good, they were trailing 0-1 after 2 minutes. 

Cigar-Nurserwbill

Did I spoil it for ya? I know that you record things to watch later. If so, my bad. 

rwbillCigar-Nurse

Oh thanks, i probably would have flipped to the end of the game on these college regular season games lol

Calquake

Hola fellow reprobates. I thought game started at 7:30. L.G.R.W.

rwbill

Looks like a really good crowd at LCA tonight.

rwbill

Aw crap that was a really good pass by fabbri but must have bounced over the stick.

Kate

Some shots on that PP.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Booo! Booo!

Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

0-2 As predicted. Playing down to the competition tonight.

Kate

Craptastic! 
Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Good God Outnumbered in our own crease again.

bigfrog

0-3 Looks like a loss before a 3 game road trip. Just saw this coming.

Kate

WTF! Craptastic!

Do something!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbillKate

I would’ve changed the goalie, even though the rest of the team is sucking too.

rwbill

Looks like I picked the wrong Saturday to quit drinking

Calquakerwbill

I didn't. I'll drink for both of us.

rwbillCalquake

Thank you for the consideration. I restarted. I have some premixed Manhattan’s that I’m going to try.

rwbill

It is not inconsivable that the wings still win this game. The next four goals are huge.

rwbill

Lots of people showed up at Little Caesars tonight, pretty disappointing after the first.

Paul

I truly expected the Wings to have an easy win tonight.  

It goes to show you, don't ask me for any hockey advice.

Cigar-Nurse

Merde. Letting their floater Laine score a couple of easy ones and a monkey fornicating a football on the other. We can’t afford any trap games. Get er goin x4. 

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

PooBah walks into the house... Swears like a sailor and storms out.

Trade um all Stevie.

Going to watch the second period of the Griffs game. Maybe they have their act together.

M. Glynn

I don't think this is all on Husso, but they need to pull him after the next one.

M. Glynn

Maybe the D went out for drinks this afternoon?

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Griffs are on wxsp channel 15.1 on your antenna. Winning 1 to 0. 15 min left in second. 

RWHockey13

This loss is on the poor decisions by Lalonde. Husso should not have played and it looks like he has paired Chiarot with Seider.


rwbillRWHockey13

How would you know ahead of time that Husso should not have played?

RWHockey13rwbill

By watching the games and seeing he has been playing too much. Needs a break… very simple.

Calquake

For whatever reason they weren't ready to play. That's on all of them.

RWHockey13Calquake

Not all. Would would play Husso again? The dude needs a rest. Seider and Chiarot pairing has done nothing; Seider and Walman and then you revert back. Coaching decisions are poor.

rwbill

Svengoolie is showing The Invisible Man tonight.  Youve already been watching that with the Wings.

M. Glynn

Again new here: what does the subscribe button mean?

rwbill

Jebus, another wide open uncontested chance, but what a save by Husso.

Cigar-Nurse

Husso still wants to play. How bout the rest of youse guys?

Kate

I know it’s tough on the players, but too bad Mickey. They’re not the ones paying……… they’re the ones that are getting paid. Millions, I might add…….

Kate

Detroit came into this game thinking it would be a cake walk……. Think again guys…

Cigar-NurseKate

You can’t get cocky after winning 2 games. The only consistency tonight is sucking on offense and defense. Get your heads oot of the upcoming road trip and into this game. 

M. Glynn

Big comeback - I am / beers are feeling it!!

Paul

Hey we could be Blackhawk fans, down 6-1 to Seattle after the first period.

rwbill

8 shots per period probably won’t keep you in the game, especially when the D is absent.

Kate

Maatta!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbillKate

There are reasons that Columbus only has 26 points.  Let’s see if the wings can find them.

Katerwbill

You’re looking like a genius right aboot now, RW.😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Maatta with a gratuitous bounce.  Keep grinding boys. 

rwbill

Down to two.  Walman’s happy feet have been impressive lately..

Cigar-Nurse

Wallman makes it more interesting.  

Kate

Seider is so good…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

The only bad news here is that we’re suddenly down to just 5:30 remaining.  Well, and trailing by two goals.

rwbill

Trying to overcome dysfunctional defensive positioning with energy is just hard to do.

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Cool Hand.  One shot game.  

Kate

90 second time oot……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

These bastards are frustrating because they give away so many easy goals then play their hearts out to try to overcome it.  

bigfrog

3-4 Final. Slept through two periods.

Calquake

Winning one period ain't gonna cut it. Later reprobates.

rwbill

Well until Monday, if not sooner, reprobates.  Lackadaisical defense again put them into too big of a hole.

Cigar-Nurse

Would be nice to play 60 instead of 20 minutes. 

Honestly they got what they deserved. No points.  Until Monday, have a great rest o the weekend 19.
