Angry And Hungry

11/17/2022 at 10:00pm EST

Heya 19. After losing the last four games, it’s high time that the Wings come in as the team that is angry, and, hungry. They’re still too soft, missing that snarl, that edge, that will give them the extra boost they need to win the close games. I’ve seen the talk around here(meaning KK)and other sports outlets. One day it’s all doom and gloom, the next day it’s the Wings have a shot. All that matters is how they play tonight.

Also, I’m a bit perturbed that another player is wearing #96.(No offense to Walman.)Homer is legend IMHO. He perfected the net front presence position, and I’ve yet to see anyone do it better. I never really thought the Wings would retire his number, but, whatever……

It’s the Wings vs the Sharks. The puck drops tonight at 10:30 PM ET/7:30 PM PT 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 NBCSCA.

It’s a Live Blog!

Hi Kate. The Red  Wings are almost a mirror image of last years team. With that in mind I'm hoping for a turn around game tonight.

Katebigfrog

Hi frog. I’m hoping for anything …😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Jimmah is so soft spoken.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

position, and I’ve yet to see anyone do it better. I never really

I've never understood why the Wings haven't put up a Ring of Honor for players like Homer or Draper and others who were integral to the success of the Wings throughout the years.

KateCalquake

Both those guys played over 1000 games as Red Wings. Draper is the best dollar Mike Illitch ever spent….😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Evenin’ Bitches!

Thanks for the LB, Kate. I’ve been watching from the puck drop, but texting with my kids, they crack me up.

I’ve downing some hot black tea and maybe have a couple of pepperidge farm milano cookies for artificial stimulation.

Hola 19. The blog is not behaving well. Posted several times unsuccessfully. LGRW

I have to refresh the page before posting. I’ve experienced a glitch or two also, but not tonight.

rwbillKate

Yes I have to do that to. I refresh immediately after I post so it will be ready.

rwbill

Ugh it snuck through.  I’m sure Husso was pretty well screened .

bezukov

This is getting old.  You can tell this is a sophomore team.  They consistently play down to lesser opponents.  

rwbill

I’m really impressed with Perron.  And that was a very chill goal by Hronek, calm and lifted it over the goalie.  Boy did they need that.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Hronek from Perron!

nctheo

Have to admit. I was the biggest Hronek hater last year. Startin to come around tho.

Paul

Regarding posting a comment, it is hit and miss right now if you try to post more than one comment without refreshing the page.  The developers are aware of the issue and a few small other ones too.  They are coming up with a plan to resolve these issues that will make KK 2.0 whole.

rwbill

Sumbitch. Lalonde will be pissed at all the poor turnovers.

rwbill

Whoever dreamed up these Milano Orange Chocolate cookies is evil.  And a genius.  An evil genius.

Katerwbill

Just went on my grocery list. Dark chocolate goes with everything.

Calquake

It might be time to take off our Red Wing colored glasses and see that this team is not as we envisioned. Yes its early and we have injuries but I'm only interested in results. They speak for themselves.

KateCalquake

Results indeed. This team is not very organized. Or tough. Or, pick an adjective….

rwbill

Kate another great one is the Pepperidge Farm Brussels Dark Chocolate cookies.  I’ve been alternating one from each bag lol.

rwbill

Right cal and Kate, True. They need to come out angry and bangin’ and not wait until the third period like they did in LA.

rwbill

Damn, I was just thinking at least there is a different batch of commercials tonight, then the yellow brick road came on.

Calquake

An old woman answers her front door to find a vacuum salesman on her

porch. After talking his way inside he dumps a bag of horse manure in

the middle of the room. He exclaims, "Madam, if my vacuum can't pick up

every bit of that manure, I'll eat what's left." She replied, "I hope

you brought your appetite because I lost my electricity two days ago!"

rwbill

I don’t know if Lalonde is a screamer at times, but that intermission was probably a good time to let loose if they hope to salvage anything from this road trip.  There were just flat out lazy passes that first period.

Calquakerwbill

Remember when there was talk aboot taking 6 oot of 8 points? Ha!

rwbillCalquake

Hahaha yeah right now 3 would be a comeback.  I don’t know what that writer was thinking.

Calquake

How bad is Zadina that he can't claim a spot on this roster?

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Shoot the puck = goal - Larkin with a good shot.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

It really was a garbage goal off Perron's skate


rwbill

Crap the Sharts getting a couple of point blank chances.

Paul

Longest goal #96 has ever scored for the Detroit Red Wings.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Walman with the Howitzer shot!

1st of the Year!

rwbill

I don’t think Reimer saw that one either!   Ras has really carved out a niche on the team, wholly different role than what he was known for in WHL.  Others could learn from him if they want to stay around.

bezukov

Happy to see Joe Thornton and reflect on how he never won a Stanley Cup.  That was refreshing.  

rwbill

THAT was a much better energy period.

bezukovrwbill

Wings better match that effort in the third.  I doubt the sharks come out sleeping again.  

rwbill

The tea and chocolate cookies have kept me abuzz, hopefully won’t crash before the end of the game.

bezukov

I wish the guy nothing but the best, and I know he’s new to the gig, but I dunno if Jimmy Howard is gonna last on tv.  

Royal Grand Exalted PooBahbezukov

I thought he did better tonight but I haven't seen that much of him.

rwbillbezukov

Yeah, Ozzie was really nervous his first year on the job, maybe Jimmy will relax and just tell us what he knows, which is a lot.

rwbill

Here we are with the one goal lead in the third, are they learning how to close it out?  Not as easy as it used to be.  Refs don’t mind blowing the whistle, and Detroit has had quite a few PPs already.

Veleno goal wrap around, nice pressing !

rwbill

What the hell is this in a hockey game ?  Excessive vaginal bleeding from uterine fibroids.  I KNEW a lot of women watched hockey!!

rwbill

Holy Crap.   Tie game.  Lost face off.

bigfrog

4-4 tie. This site is messed up. Cannot post.

Kate

The Wings need to just shoot the fuching puck every chance they get.

rwbill

Holy Crap Seider with a beauty from Perron !

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Seider!

1st of the Year!

Paul

Issues with comments right now, it will be looked at in the morning.

Kate

Suter! Kubalik!

Great Finish!

Next game 19

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!
