A2Y- Show Up

01/10/2023 at 6:30pm EST

Hiya everyone and welcome back. The Wings are in the middle of a losing streak that needs to be snapped, and they have a three game home stand ahead. Some are saying their play of late isn’t horrendous, maybe not, but, losing really starts to wear you down, and, it’s not the way to keep fans coming back to watch games. The discipline, and confidence(scoring) needed to win is missing right now(and luck.) The Wings have to play the entire game like there’s only six minutes left. Show up and leave it all on the ice, every single game, ad nauseam……….

Bert’s back in the lineup tonight, Soderblom has been sent to GR.

It’s the Jets vs the 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 TSN3.

It’s a Live Blog!

Evenin’ Bitches!

Thanks to Paul and Kate from PA from somewhere from South Carolina.

The “mic’d up” programming is almost the most disappointing and empty thing on a Wings broadcast, next to Light the Lamp.

Look at some of these records halfway through the season - Winnipeg twice as many wins as losses.

Boston Bruins playing .850 - through 40 games !!  Unheard of.

And so we (19) meet again. It's tough to hang in when victories seem elusive. We all want to cheer our team but we have to have something to cheer about. The Wings are better this season (5 on 5) but special teams are costing them wins. Fix it so we can all cheer again. L.G.R.W.

KateCalquake

I hear ya Quaker. When you think about it, it’s 80 evenings this team is getting from us. I’m not 18, and, don’t have the luxury of wasting time.

A finite resource …..😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

A win would be nice as it makes it easier to sell my tickets.

Hola 19. The Wings seem to mimic a duffer’s golf game. They do well at certain aspects of the game, but suck at others. 

As the old saying goes your best players have to be their best players and the bottom sixers have to chip in. 

Every one needs to start on time tonight. LGRW 

Cigar-Nurse

Berggen with a beauty. My center ice feed must be a minute behind y’all. 

rwbill

Man he lifted a pretty shot there didn’t he?

Kate

Just shoot the puck!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

I recently got pulled over by the cops. They asked me if I had a police record.

I told them no but I have a few Sting CD's.

Kate

Booooo! Boooo!

Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Sunny. Curly fries for all. 

Cigar-Nurse

Son of a.  Seeing eye lucky shot.  Get er back.  

rwbill

How the F was that not a hook by the Jets at :40 left?

Kate

I don’t think I dislike the sweaters anymore. I guess I’m used to them already.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Good first period.  Don’t like giving back that goal but oh well.

Cigar-Nurse

Good period.  Time for dinner.  Brb

rwbill

GeezOh, point blank scoring chance for Winnipeg in the first :30.

rwbill

Wow nice goal!  Happy for Kubalik!  3 goal lead again.

Cigar-Nurse

Way to go Kubalik. Nice grinding by sunny to get that to happen 

Cigar-Nurse

Way better consistent play by Moritz since being paired with Wallman. Took long enough. 

rwbill

Geez that was another point blank goal by Gagne.  Now the next set of 3 foals is huge.

Kate

Boooo!Boooo! 
Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Sweet Sassy Molassy they keep jamming right at the net.

Cigar-Nurse

Gagne left alone in the slot like he was still playing here. Must of liked his cologne. 

rwbill

WTF just happened?  I went upstairs for 60 seconds and now they have 3?

Cigar-Nurse

At least these refs are letting em play unlike the other night in Torannah 

bigfrog

The Red Wings have a Pittsburgh 5 on 3.

rwbill

Wow !  Nice goal!  I still didn’t see it go in, but 5x4 for another minute.

Calquake

poop, not a good way to start the 3rd.

Kate

Boooo!Boooo!

Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Fabbrrri with a great position. 

The third set of 3 foals is huge.

rwbill

OMG there are still a bunch of unchecked players in front of our net.

rwbill

Third Period humor.

What’s the difference between a golf ball and the G Spot?

rwbill

A man will spend time trying to find a golf ball.

Cigar-Nurse

Jebus. Way to many defensive lapses. Clean it up. 

PS. Touché Cal. 

rwbill

Odds that Winnipeg gets at least 6?  Pretty good I think, there is still 14 minutes to go.

Kate

What a load of crap…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

I am a broken record.  Jets just keep hammering the puck on the net and from close range.

Kate

Game management……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

An uncomfortable 5 more minutes to go.

Kate

Boooo!Boooo!

Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Merde. Diamond clenching time.  

Kate

Then don’t say it, Mickey…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Finally I can unclench. Oh look... a pair of earrings.

Kate

And….relax! We WIN! Yay!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Wow that was wide open.  Womt win many like that.

bigfrog

7-5 Final, but you can see by this game how far the Red Wings are from being a contender.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Until Toronto.... Night all

rwbill

Cal you getting a lot of rain up there?   Forgot to ask earlier.

Calquakerwbill

We got 4 inches of rain yesterday. It's as if the climate has changed. s/

Cigar-Nurse

Entertaining retro 80’s game.  Until Thursday for a rematch with Torannah,good night 19

Kate

Ozzie’s post game is really spot on. He’s come a long way in a short time……
