A2Y- Staying With It

01/12/2023 at 6:30pm EST

Good evening and welcome to all. The Wings snapped the losing streak the other night in a high scoring affair that could have easily gone either way. I will say it was a fun game to watch. Seven different Wings scored, Seider picked up four points, which is huge, Raymond added a goal and two helpers for three points on the night, Walman is going pretty good right now, Berggren looks like he belongs, and props to the Wings not mentioned for staying with it till the last buzzer.

Tonight we face a Toronto team that we’ve not won against in three(nearly four) long years. The Leafs are for real, and, it’s going to take every body on the Wings, to a man, to break this particular streak. The Leafs are coming in on high after a win last night against the Preds, so that is going to make it just that much harder for the Wings to get the W.

It’s the Leafs vs the Wings in an Original Six matchup. The puck is set to drop around 7:00 PM, and will be broadcast on ESPN and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also available on TVAS and TSN4.

It’s a Live Blog!

Auston Matthews will miss his second straight game tonight.  Wayne Simmonds will play tonight.

Sure would be nice to have a 2 game winning streak. L.G.R.W.

Hi Matt and thanks for joining.  If you have been lurking for years, it probably feels like you know many of the 19.

Nice avatar too.

Waiting for ESPN to start the broadcast..

These early goals are getting tiresome.

Evenin’ Bitches!

Early relief from a goal. Other teams making a living in our crease.

rwbill

I’m able to watch split screen with Michigan basketball live from Ioway.  We’ll see how this works out.

Kate

Finishing a check eh? 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

That’s what we paid for to get Chirot. More hits like that fella. 

Kate

Cool Hand Lucas! 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Way to go Cool Hand. Time to get streaking.  LGRW 

M. Glynn

Thank you for the welcome everyone! Hoping to see more hits from Ben like that!

Kate

Nice work by Larkin.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Emily. They are not operators. They are surgeons. Yeesh 

rwbill

Another precision power play by the Wings.

Cigar-Nurse

Good period. Build on it boys.  

Cigar-Nurse

Just checking the home grounds  after the storms that blew through here. All good.  Temps dropped 20 degrees in 5 minutes.  Hope all goes well for you Kate with the storm heading your way.  

KateCigar-Nurse

Thanks for the good wishes. We’ve been watching some storms, but, thankfully nothing to report yet….☘️

Rang it off the post on a Pittsburgh 5 on 3.

Kate

Nice feed from Berggren.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

THAT was some nice passing for that PP goal for Fabbrrri.

Cigar-Nurse

Fabulous Fabbri with a great cerebral assist from Berggen.  

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Really surprised that Toronto didn't complain about the stick that got pushed away from the Leafs player just before the goal.

Kate

Boooo! Booooo!

Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Nice tip in.  Wrong net. Get er back.  

Kate

Wings need to kick it up a few notches.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Adjustments were made on the bench during that last half of the period and it looked like the Wings responded.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-NurseKate

That’s the game within the game.  Adjusting,adapting,and overcoming separates the men from the boys.

A failed ventriloquist decided to become a 'medium'. His first customer was a woman who wanted to contact her deceased husband. She inquired about the cost. The new medium replied, " For $100 you can speak with your husband. For $200 you can have him speak to you while I drink a glass of water."

The Red Wings should be up by a few goals. The lone Toronto fluke goal is a specialty of theirs through the years.

7 times? stubborn? lol

rwbill

OK can they meet Tronna’s 3rd period push?

Cigar-Nurse

Cmon Lil Bert. Quit squeezing that stick too tight.  

M. Glynn

Would've loved for that to go in for Bert.

Kate

Some nice photos of Cheli, Shanny, and Yzerman…….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

It's funny, you can tell who is behind. Live in PA and im about 2 minutes off. (Hulu live tv)

rwbill

That is probably the best description I’ve heard from a network person, “This is an arena. The Joe was a rink, with a lot of seats.”

rwbill

MoFo, there are still 10:30 remaining.  Lots of time for the Leafs.  Penalty, my ass.

Kate

Bad, bad, zebra…..

Dive…

Holmberg is a soccer player

Cigar-Nurse

And another diver down. So tired of this. What happened when the league used to fine the divers and it was published to the public?

Kate

Good call😄😄😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

The Commissary system has a small display stand of Mackinac Island Fudge Co products lately.  $6.49 for a half-moon shape chunk. 

rwbill

OK coming up on diamond clinching time.

rwbill

2:01, will they go en for this faceoff?

Cigar-Nurse

This ESPN crew suck. Didn’t notify of the open net until the puck was in the net. 

Kate

Is this really happening? First regulation win against Toronto since 2017…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Empty netter bank shot and now Mo!

Cigar-Nurse

Ach  di liber. Seider dots the eye.  Good win against the leaves for the first time in 6 years.  

Kate

Good win for the team and for Wingaholics everywhere. 😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

Nice win.  Pretty much outplayed Toronto tonight.

Cigar-Nurse

We needed that one.  Until Saturday. Good night 19.
