A2Y- Get With It

01/21/2023 at 6:30pm EST

Hiya and welcome to all. The Wings played good enough against a good Vegas team this week and won to take 3 out of 6 points on the road, so there’s that. We all know that the Wings have to get with it and play hard, smart hockey, no matter where they traveled to. Jet lag is not an acceptable explanation. In other news, Bert is day to day with the lower-body injury.

Tonight’s game features the Flyers coached by Torts which should make for an entertaining/interesting game.

It’s the Flyers vs the Red Wings. The puck is set to drop sometime 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 NBCSP.

It’s a Live Blog!

This is the type of game the Wings must win if they want to be taken seriously. Next 10-15 games will determine the season and whether Bertuzzi and perhaps Larkin will be here going forward. Time to get to work boys and prove your worth. L.G.R.W.

I am confident in that Larkin will still be apart of this team going forward. And if that turns out as not true, then next year will be hot garbage. Guess they can roll with 3 As, because there is no other clear captain in my opinion. Bert.. Well, seems they have played without him for almost 2 seasons anyways.

I wonder about Larkin because the latest offer was not well received by the Larkin camp. If he wants 9-10 mil on long term contract I can see them parting ways.

I’m thinking that Stevie wants Larks to take a haircut in a contract if he wants to truly be a captain who will lead by example by doing that. Putting the next move in Larks corner.

It’s feast or famine with the Wings…….. 

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Hola 19. Time to make hay as Mickey says. LGRW 

Kate

Intermission humor: I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon.

I'll let you know which comes first.

Found a cool podcast called The Detroit history podcast. Lots of interesting subjects with over 50 titles. 

Cigar-Nurse

I hate to say it but I think this team plays better with lil Bert oot of the lineup. 

Cigar-Nurse

Torts has his team finishing their checks tonight. Keep your heads up boys. 

Kate

Extra curricular stuff…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Well well well.  If it isn’t the 19.

Evenin’ Bitches!

Honestly I gaffed at the start time, maybe I didn’t adjust with the time change, although I didn’t actually change any time zones.

But I’m caught up to live of a rather unremarkable game.

rwbill

The dynamic 21% PP gets a chance to tip the game in our favor next period.

Something about the dyslexic philosopher wondering if dog really exists.

I saw boxes of paczki in the commissary this afternoon. Seems they’re really pushing those earlier and earlier every year.  Fat Tuesday isn’t even for another month.

Philly's dictating the play tonight - with sticks, pushes, jabs, hit the goalie at end of period. In our building.

And the Wings do what? 

rwbill

I don’t think The Wings have any bitter rivalry right now because they haven’t had a playoff series in six years.  It takes one of those to develop a good healthy hate for someone.

bezukovrwbill

100%. The CBJ for years insisted the Wings were their rivals.  (I live in Columbus). Drove me crazy because of how fake it was.  Like everything else about the CBJ.  

Meanwhile we had the Ducks, Sharks, and Penguins. Rivalries are made in the playoffs.

Cigar-Nurse

Perfect shot and hell of a presence to stay onside.  Get er back. LGRW 

rwbill

CN the Detroit podcast series looks really interesting.


 It was horrific, even by the low standards of the urban drug trade. Three dead bodies found in a van on Detroit’s east side one night in 1979. All three had been decapitated.

Gotta check that one oot. I was a consumer there and then.  😆

Not all are hideous, there’s one about the development of Buddy’s Pizza and Detroit style pizza. More tasty.

Stupid Jobu.... Red Wing Sticks...

The Wings have separated into the Peloton of Suck since early December.

13 points out of TB 3rd place.

7 points and 4 teams out of Wild Card.

Kate

Where was this level of play 59 minutes ago? I want to know!

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Cool Hand. Way to,avoid the shutoot. 

bezukov

Later taters.  We’ll get ‘em next time. 

Calquake

What can you say except... Later reprobates.

rwbill

Giveaway goal on one end, hit post and no luck on the other end.

rwbill

Probably No on the POS chart this year lol.

Cigar-Nurse

Tuesday is another game for the wingaholics to get their fix. Until then. Good night 💤 19.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.

All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
