A2Y- Jekyll And Hyde(Hide)

01/16/2023 at 2:30pm EST

A good MLK Day afternoon to all. After winning a couple of game against two good teams, the Wings had to blow it all up with the usual bad loss. The nature of this team is still in flux, and, anytime this kind of loss happens, it is a huge downer for Wings fans everywhere. The team has a Jekyll and Hyde(Hide) personality right now. One day they’re playing with the big dogs, matching up very nicely against them, the next outing it’s a completely different Wings team that comes out and looks really bad against a lesser team. So, enough of that…..


It’s the Wings vs the Avalanche. The puck drops sometime around 3:00 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+, SN, SN360, and ALT.

It’s a Live Blog!

enough of that


Amen! Consistency should be the new mantra for the Wings. Let's start today! L.G.R.W.

PooBah in the House!

Thanks Kate.

I'll have to make a winking Ozzy one of these days.

Kate

Hello everyone. All I know is the Avalanche are one very fast team, and the current Cuppy holders. Still, I hope the best Wings team shows up today. 

Lets Go Red Wings !!!!!

They have to waive off that goal

rwbill

Afternoon, Bitches!

That’s a fine how ya’ do!  0-1 with a slew foot, but it doesn’t matter cuz one foot was oot of the blue.

Sumbitch.

Still 51 minutes to determine the ootcome.

You know if it the  situation was reversed, it would be a no goal.

Kate

I’m wondering how that’s a goal…… 

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Usually this is reserved for goals against, but, sumbitch, now on to a PK against Colorado.

Some good looks on the Wings PP but good looks only count in A2Y and 5-minute speed dating.

Hola 19. Late to the dance here and see down by one.  Have the nauseating avs feed.  Will see how long before we hit the mute button. LGRW 

bigfrog

0-2 on a dumb penalty by the Red Wings.

rwbill

Well I’m going to go burn off a quick 15 minute walk during intermission while it’s still daylight oot.

Cigar-Nurse

Welp another hole to dig oot of. Can we get 40 minutes of good play instead of the 20 we got last game?  Stay tuned.  

In other news, I’m surprised nobody took a chance on Ned. Maybe the other teams see and know something that Stevie does. 

Read something that the Blues had all their scouts at our last game. Trade in the works?  

Cigar-Nurse

Nice subtle interference led to that along with allowing Makar free skating. Clean er up. 

Kate

I’m watching and cooking. And not happy with the GA……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-NurseKate

Watching putting away the Christmas tree,and swabbing the decks here.  

rwbill

Well I should have extended that into a 3-mile walk.  Another SWM PK coming up.  Maybe we’ll get a shortie out of this.

Kate

Pull him. Do Husso a favor for Cristo's sake….

rwbillKate

True, having these wings play in front of you is a form of abuse.

rwbill

JT Compher.  JFC how many Wolverines are oot there anyway?  Another PK against.  Inside the D easy tap in.

Cigar-Nurse

So much for covering the slot. Not on Husso there.  

rwbill

This should be interesting, but no guarantee they’ll play a good game.

How big is the Coyotes’ arena?

Mullett Arena has an official capacity of 5,025 fans, though that number will decrease slightly for hockey games.

Calquakerwbill

Between the arena name and attendance "that number will decrease slightly for hockey games." it's a miracle hockey survives in the desert.

rwbill

“the Wings are having a hard time protecting that Grade A scoring area” - Ozzie

No shitz!  That isn’t new.

rwbill

Do Husso a favor and put some other sacrificial lamb out there for the third period.  At least in baseball in a blowout you could put a backup outfielder in to pitch.

rwbill

I think I’mma gonna shower and find an IPA during the intermission.  Or a Manhattan.  Or airplane model glue.

rwbill

Copp finally scores.  All the Wolverines showing up today.

Kate

The sound of the Wings fans in the arena warms my heart….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbillKate

Wish they had more to cheer about and could own the arena.  It’s not fun being at an away arena and getting shamed.

bigfrog

1-5 After two. About what I expected.

rwbill

I just came back downstairs after a shower to try wash the stank off, and walked right into another.  2-6.

Go with the glue. "It'll stick to your ribs."


Now that’s funny, in a sadistic kind of way.

rwbill

Little scrolling statistic at the bottom of the screen -  “Inner shots allowed”  Detroit 27th.  Not good.

Cigar-Nurse

Back for the rest of the game. Husso oot after the 2nd? Asking for a friend. 

bigfrog

2-6 I expected this game That's why last Saturday's game was so disappointing.

rwbill

They play in front of 5000 tomorrow night, that’s probably more than should be expected to pay to see them play.

Calquake

Tomorrow in Tempe. Later reprobates.

Cigar-Nurse

Yea Perron. Consolation of curly fries for all. 

So 6-3 beating is better than the 7-0 thrashing vs Ottawa by the avs. 

Until tomorrow in the desert. Good day 19.
