Yesterday when Kate reached me to say she was still not feeling well, I suggested she take tonight off too, so it's me again.
Puck drop is around 9:08pm ET and the Wings need to be ready to play. The Flames last played on Monday in Ottawa and have been home since waiting for the Wings. You know the Flames will come out hard tonight.
Stick with it boys, play the right way and get another win.
Play hard boys while we do this live blog thing.
In case you were wondering, Hellberg starts tonight.
Hope Kate is feeling better. Lets beat the Calgoons tonight.
The future is now per Murph.
Wings Feed if needed
Carpe Diem Wings, carpe diem. L.G.R.W.
Evenin’ Butches !
Hope Kate feels well again, eventually. Right now if she showed up and they lost she would be known as what IWOCPO called “GameWrecker”.
I wonder how much legs the Wings will have tonight. The Flames playing tight might require an exhausting physical style more than racing up and down, whorestyle.
racing up and down, whorestyle.
Is there really any other way?
Not for my money, no.
I dislike the brilliant orange light flashing on the visiting goalie from above everytime the Flames score a goal. Maybe we won’t have to see it too many times tonight.
Talk about faced paced.
Hola 19. 3rd game in 4 nights is rough to do but other teams face the same. Flamers storming early so we must use our inner Jim Morrison and ride it oot. LGRW
Score Like Jim Morrison, Back Door Man.
People seem strange when your a stranger.
PooBah in the House!
Let's go, Hally!
There's a lost Blues fan behind the Calgary bench.
0-1 Short handed goal. Dumb.
RUFKM. Self-inflicted poop.
Bad Helburg. Should have swung it around to Moritz behind the net. Shake er oof.
Kubie dubie doo. Time to get streaking again.
4 shots on goal thus far. Nope, 6! Kubalik. Great timing to tie it up !!
Bertuzzi keeps imprinting his character and work ethic on the team.
So if Bertuzzi were to be dealt at the deadline, what would you want in return? For me, a 2nd rounder minimum, maybe a 1st?
Otherwise why bother? Keep him and sign him.
Well that’s a better pp than the last one. Way to go Fabs.
Toffoli is a better Bertuzzi.
Not as brittle.
I do see Stevie trading Lil Bert rather than keeping him.
Unless Zadina starts scoring I'd rather have Lurch (Soberblom) on the 4th line.
Terrible non save.
Maybe they can keep this hot PP going.
Dube smoked that one in. Get er back.
Yeah if they don’t intend to or think they will have a hard time signing Bertuzzi I would expect at least a second round and maybe a first. It’s a crap shoot, the chance of a draft pick outside the top 4 or 5 ever becoming as effective a NHL player as Bertuzzi are pretty low.
IMO, Bert wil sign a 1 or 2 year contract with the Wings. He needs t reestablish himself.
Even if he is traded, the new team will want to sign him but will offer him a long term deal with a low ball offer.
I would like to see him remain with the Wings. He definitely helps to fill out two to three lines that can score. He, Fabbri, and Vrana have not been healthy in the lineup al the same time all year. Add Larkin, Raymond, Berggren, Perron, Kubalik, Lurch, Veleno, heck they could finally start scoring goals consistently .
EDIT: Rasmussen et al, I didn’t mean to list all the forwards but if all healthy they could score more.
…. ( an unresearched statement, but somebody somewhere has a list of career NHL games by draft slot )
Now this looks like I’m saying Paul’s reply is an unresearched statement lol, clearly I mean mine is.
Kadri being Kadri. Effin diver.
I would like to see Andrew cop a feel of what his contract is supposed to translate to on the ice.
Kubalibre x 2!
Jebus, again how many times the last week or two has Bertuzzi just out-scrapped somebody to result in a Wings goal? Two tonight, and previous Larkin goals.
Kubie x2. And Kadri get nuthin for a blatant high stick.
Can't wait for Bally's RSN to go bankrupt in 29 days.
This could cause real issues with some teams coming up which may result in a chaotic trade deadline. Some teams might suddenly have a very large budget crisis.
Friedman had a note on this in today's 32 Thoughts and in the comments, I left a statement from the NHL on this.
En Fuego!!!That’s some pretty passing. Best looking PP in a long time.Goals ‘a plenty! Scoring Machine lol !!
Holy crap. That was a legitimate pp. Way to go Lil Bert.
Hard to recognize that with the Wings.
Boo! - Ras hardly touched um.
2 periods in the books... Team's working hard, getting results.
Helly, not too bad.
4-2 After two. Calgoons being penalized for their usual gooning it up, but still getting away with their high sticks.
Buy Stevie, buy!
Another two goal lead after two periods. I should SMWM instead of repeating last night’s comment, but would like to see them run off at least eight minutes without giving up the third goal.
Well I’m done for the night. Many surgeries tomorrow. Have a great rest o the game 19.
People are kinda hoping you put a lot of detail into surgeries, so good luck.
Vrana was a scratch again tonight?
Yep, Lalonde announced it yesterday. Said he was not going to disturb a winning lineup.
Su, su, Sutero!
Phil Collins likes this.
Holy Cow, Vladar lost his puck radar! Wings finally benefitting from some soft goals!
OK I’mma make some hot tea to ride this out to midnight.
The significant other just brought me a apple Crown Royal, on the rock in an actual rock glass. She even found a nice lime twist.
What a great night!
Sounds like a keeper Paul.
Z to Suter...
Cmon.... Let's Go...
Greetings 19 home from work and western hockey game is on.
Ed Note: Wife wants to know who Jobu is and why I chugged an RandC....
Kate! Missing you! Get well soon!
Hows Olde LooseCheeks doing tonight? I expected him to be a hemorhoid against the Wings??
Rumbear has some epic photos over the Sierra Nevadas, hoping you keep your hands on the wheel. Do you get updrafts unpredictably over them? They’re pretty snow covered this time of year I guess.
Thanks RW! Really worked to get some photos of Half Dome and Yosemite Valley with snow on them. Last couple miles got pretty sporty! I have some 360 degree camera stuf that I am editing.
Pilot first, photographer second!
And gentleman extraordinaire.
I was talking about rumbear, not myself.
Call me satisfied. They Wings are finally playing a system in all three zones and all this scoring, without Raymond. Things are looking up.
RW I still cant for the life of me post a foto here. They are on Fbook share if ya want.
Gotta finish these Flamers !!!
Skate to throat! (as some old posters would say....)
I use imgur.com which is free as my host and then post the address for the photo.
You do need to read the terms on sharing and stuff if you want to retain total control though.
I hate to think that I’ve been considering making a Peloton of Suck chart. if the Wings keep climbing nearer to 8-9-10 I may have to. Cigar Nurse has been asking anyway.
“Heater” - the BSD buzz word of the week.
These guys play really banged up all the time that I don’t consider.
5-2 Final. Great effort.
Nice win streak. Later you magnificent reprobates.
Jebus, I considered flying out to Washington for a week to watch the Wings but got an unexpected bill and convinced myself the Wings weren’t playing that well anyway, so I didn’t go. WA and HI are the only two states I’ve never been in so I was going to cross that one off the list.
Peloton of Suck.... Ahhhh the memories!
A sweep of western Canada! Holy Cats!
Holy Crap ( Ray Barrone’s dad ) , the Wings just might make my dire February predictions look stupid. Familiar territory for me.
Rumbear I might get a few of your airborne photos ready to post for the next live blog, I guess Saturday night. Thanks.
Back to back, great legs.
Helly, nice job tonight
