Coming In Hot

11/23/2022 at 6:30pm EST

Good evening and welcome to one and all on this Thanksgiving Eve. The Wings are coming in hot tonight to begin a five game home stand after a decent road trip which saw them take five of eight possible points.
They’ve enjoyed back to back wins with big contributions coming from the defense corps. Hronek is leading the way this season on the back end, with every one making big contributions. The D have combined for six goals in the last two games, and Husso has to get his props as well. After all, the goalie is the last line of defense. It’s a nice change from what we were used to watching. During this trip, Seider scored his first goal of the season as well as T-Bert. I’ve said enough for now, as not to jink the team. Knock on wood….

As always, I will say that how very thankful I am for Paul Kukla, for giving us a place to gather for what seems like a very long time now. For Bill Houlihan, our founder and Chief, who we miss, and encourage him to visit more often, and most of all, for each and every one of you 19 rascals that manage somehow to have made the time we’ve spent here a great reminder of what time well spent means. Through good times which were many, and the bad patches which we have endured.
We’re a tight knit group around here, but will welcome anyone, anytime. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

It’s the Preds vs the Wings. The puck is set to drop at 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 BSSO.

It’s a Live Blog!

It’s hard to believe Ozzie is going to be 50. They just had a side by side pic of a young Ozzie and Ron Howard. Hilariously similar. I loves me some Ozzie!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Happy Pre-Thanksgiving to all reprobates near and far. I'm thankful for this blog and all it means to Red Wing fans. I'm thankful for Paul's hard work and Kate for being our leader. L.G.R.W.

KateCalquake

I’m thankful to wake up every day. It’s a pleasure to still have the “cool” kids still hanging around….😄😄😄Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Paul

Checking in to wish everyone a peaceful Thanksgiving.

I've been home less than 24 hours from my latest hospital visit and feeling pretty good.  The issue was my blood level was spiking like Ned's gaa.

Enjoy the game.  Now on to cover 14 more games tonight.

Happy Thanksgiving all! At the Cadieux listening to the grateful dead cover band and watching the wings!

KatePaul

I’m so glad you’re feeling better, Paul and that you have tomorrow off. 

CalquakeKate

Now get back to work! :)

PaulCalquake

I did one good thing today since the significant other had issues since she was raised with an Arabic background and really hasn't experienced an American Thanksgiving.  

Thanks to Boston Market, the cooked turkey is in the fridge.

KatePaul

I’m going with tradition this year, but, next year I’ll be doing something different. Something that isn’t labor intensive. 

CalquakePaul

I've always liked Boston Market products. Be well, be safe and be thankful.

CalquakeCalquake

P.S. Does your better half make baklava?

PaulCalquake

She does but very labor intensive so Shatila's in Dearborn is the place.  They have a sugar free version and I can't taste the difference.

Hola 19. I’m up in the NC mountains with sketchy internet for the weekend. I’ll be lurking aboot here with the rest of you reprobates for updates. 
Very thankful for all of you here for the break from this wackadoodle world.

Especially Paul and Kate.

Have a great L bee

rwbill

Eveniń Bitches!

I’m Thankful for all of those things as well.


I wish Karen, and others along the way, were also thankful for Lurkers.  Actually I guess we’re called stalkers.

Katerwbill

Back in “our day” the word was “secret admirer” ….😉

Calquake

Something tells me there's going to be empty seats around the Live Blog table tonight.

KateCalquake

I thought it would be a light night. That’s alright though. 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Right Kate, Ozzie still looks 28!!

Katerwbill

I think hockey players age very well as a group. I don’t know why. Good genetics? Athleticism? 

Kate

Ozzie’s son is the spitting image of him. Mannerisms and all. What a very nice family he has. Ooh, what a lucky man…ELP reference..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Mickey is so right. Red Wings fans. Who does have more fun than we do?

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

damndogrevenge

Hey Kate and 19! Lurking from the Cadieux Cafe! Watching the Wings and listening to a Grateful Dead cover band!

Go DBoss!

Katedamndogrevenge

Hi dog and Happy Thanksgiving! Good way to celebrate Ozzie’s 50th birthday. 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Low body fat and great heart condition, except for the coke heads, of course.

Cigar-Nurserwbill

Watched the Winnipeg game the other night where they retired Selane and Numinnems numbers. They both looked like they haven’t aged at all. 

Katerwbill

Is coke still a thing? Am I missing something here? I am over 50…😉

Kate

How is that a penalty? No. Really……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Huge trip by Preds goalie on someone…. No call.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Copp has 8 points in his last 10 games. So getting there. Invisibility….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Good period!  Another chance to protect a third period lead.


Larkin with 21 points in 19 games?!  Or 23 did he say.

rwbill

The offensive depth has really benefitted Larkin, and everyone.

Calquake

My joke for Thanksgiving Eve: There's only two things men want to know from women; Does this feel good? and Are you mad at me?

Rumbear

Kate! Checking in.... I was 50 for a whole year, once. Boy that's a road sign in my rear view mirror!!
Lads are looking sporty tonight! Hoerowneck is on tear!!

LGRW !!!!!

KateRumbear

Happy Thanksgiving Rummy! I’m very glad you stopped by tonight.Another Old Fashioned for ya?

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

What is the difference between a man and childbirth?
One can be terribly painful and sometimes almost unbearable while the other is just having a baby.😄😄😄😄😄

damndogrevenge

How do you add a picture to a post?

Go Wings!

Rumbear

How do you add a picture to a post?  Hahahahahahahahaha, no offense meant but, I have several advanced degrees and I. Cant. Figure. It. Out!

Maybe when I'm older....

It's a mad science and even then, I sense RW Bill screens the posts! 

Kate

Pull it together Wings….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Rumbear

Yannow the Prednecks Coach is preaching hard...Just get One! We are in this......

rwbill

Sweet Sassy Molassy this is some frenetic action.  Lucky to keep the Preds off the board this period. 

Kate

The Preds are hacking and wacking all over the place while the zebras are busy swallowing a whistle cocktail…. Jerks…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Rumbear

C'mon me bouys!  Bring this one home!!

rwbill

PLUS 3 goal differential?!  Quite impressive considering a few blowout losses.

rwbill

Man we’ve missed several grade A chances.  Hope we don’t regret that.

Kate

Go after em’ Wings!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Good job, Ras!  A solid NHL’er now.

Calquake

Until Friday, later reprobates. Don't eat too much.

rwbill

At the 1/4 pole better than expected.

THREE shutouts!!!  Never heard of such a thing the last few years.

Let’s Go Red Wings!

Rumbear

As it should be!


Happy Thanksgiving to the 19!!

Kate

I’m thankful for this WIN! YAY!

Happy Thanksgiving 19!
An early Happy Birthday Ozzie!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate
