Going For Two In A Row

11/19/2022 at 6:30pm EST

The Wings will finish their road trip tonight in Ohio after finally getting a win out West. It was a game that could have gone either way, but, the Wings looked like they were playing better as the game went on. Let’s not kid ourselves, the Sharks goalie gifted them a couple of goals, and, tonight the Wings will be going for two wins in a row.

The Wings should know by now that they cannot afford to start any game down by a goal, and need to start a game, playing with the same intensity they show in the last half of every third period. There are still some bad habits that need to be broken, an understatement, eh? Nonetheless, let’s just try to enjoy watching this young team grow, and the veteran presence guiding them along.

It’s the Wings vs the Blue Jackets. 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 BSOH.

It’s a Live Blog!

Paul

I wanted to address the issue the last live blog had late in the San Jose game.  There was a server spike thus causing some issues.  Hopefully it has been resolved.

Also, you can now comment on a post then another and another without refreshing the page each time.

It's a work in progress and I won't be satisfied until things are right.

KatePaul

Thanks Paul. You know we’re with you all the way. Take all the time you need. I’d rather have things done right than done fast.

Tonight's game is a measuring stick of sorts. Win, and it's a successful road trip. Lose, and it's taking a step backwards. It's all up to the boys on the ice. L.G.R.W.

Hola 19. Back to the East side of the US. Like the East side of Detroit, the cool side. Start on time tonite boys. Make it a acceptable road trip.

Hi all. Hoping for a win tonight. Like Paul mentioned the site was unresponsive at least for me during the San Jose game.

Katebigfrog

It was touch and go for me. It will come together. These new features are awesome. I’m loving the ability to edit and delete in real time. I’m still messing around with some of the other fancy items above in the comment square/bubble….

What impresses most aboot Perron is his passing ability. Something that was sorely lacking in years past.

Kate

I’m freezing here in the Deep South. Sweater, long johns, heat on too. I can’t imagine moving back to Michigan.

Cigar-NurseKate

I’m with ya Kate.  My blood must be getting thinner with the cold weather bothering my bones. Dang this getting older.  

KateCigar-Nurse

It funny you said “getting older” as I was thinking the same. Now I know why my Grandparent’s house was so hot my eyeballs would sweat😄😄😄😄

Kate

Seider is so patient. ….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Nice puck movement on the pp with Larks potting one. Keep,er goin.

Thanks Kate.

Thanks Paul for the fix on the posting issue.

I am sick of the snow!

Evenin’ Bitches!

Thanks for working on the site, Paul, and for the opportunity for we lost vagabonds and reprobates to congregate  as the warm golden slants of autumn sunshine are brutally shoved aside to be replaced by painful cold evenings and bare, leafless trees.

And!  Another great example of an uptempo PP finally, replacing that static, predictable sorry excuse we’ve had to watch for several years now.

I see that creative writing class has really paid off. :)

rwbillCalquake

Haha yeah I think that was 8th grade, Mrs. Beckert’s class in Owosso Junior High School (OJHS)!

rwbillrwbill

I credit Perron a lot, I think elevating everyone’s PP performance.

rwbill

They were playing Jenny! ( I got your number ) on the PA system.  If any of you ever visit me in Virginia, or want to break into my house through the garage, that is the combination to my door into the kitchen.  8675 (3 oh niyeeyine)

My 7 year old granddaughter said you should never do schoolwork with a broken pencil.  I said why not?  She said, because it’s pointless.

dca

..and that ladies and gents is why they teach you to go up the boards instead of out in front of the goal from the earliest years onwards….that is an awful giveaway leading to a goal.

rwbill

I got back late from intermission because putting sheets back on the bed. One bad thing about Queen size is that stupid fitted sheet is almost, but not exactly, square in size and there’s a 50-50 chance of tucking in the first two corners on the wrong side then the short side won’t extend to the head of the bed, no matter how hard you pull it, and you have to pull up the mattress with one hand and rip out the corners you just tucked in. Well, with a 50-50 chance I managed to put the long side along the short end of the bed two times in a row.

Columbus IT people haven't done enough with the video setup to keep the players from vanishing along the boards

dcaRoyal Grand Exalted PooBah

It’s not as noticeable on the Columbus broadcast feed. I can switch between the two and yes they have different advertisements on the boards and the resulting pixelation is different too. I am guessing that Detroit gets the Columbus feed not the raw feed and pixelates from there. 


…the downside is the announcer keeps saying Jodie Copp.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Charoit with the canon.

rwbill

Man that was a nice poke check by Seider that started that rush on the goalie. 

Kate

“A big, big human,” says Ozzie, aboot Sundqvist 😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Good to see Rasmussen back oot there after that questionable hit in the slot. 

Kate

Did anyone experience a glitch about 6 minutes ago? Asking for a friend….

They mentioned Ville Leino briefly.  I saw his first game with the Wings in a make shift A2Y reunion in DC on Jan 31, 2009.  He scored on a backhand spinorama in front of the net on his first shift.  We all met before the game at a fake Irish bar nearby.  This is Master Chief and wife behind the goal.

The Red line to Chinatown which was 3 transfers (for me) full of Cap fans when I used to go. Of course nothing is like wearing a Lions jersey to Jack Kent Cook in a metrocar full of Hog fans. 

Was this after the original Snowmagedon?

I might have been at that game too. 

rwbill

OK let’s see the Lalonde shut down third period, if they have such a thing.

rwbill

And the site is working very quickly tonight, new comments posting right up.

rwbill

What a pickup by Yzerman, one of many this summer.

Cigar-Nurse

Have the Columbus feed and they are very complementary to us tonight. 

rwbill

Bertuzzi gets the favorable bounce !!  Nice.

rwbill

I know Husso would like to keep this at 1 goal to get his GAA back down after that blowout the other night.  So would Lalonde.

Cigar-Nurse

Lil Bert gets oof the schnide.  Maybe we get our 8 tonight instead of giving aye?

rwbill

This is very relaxing after the nail-biting football games this afternoon.

Katerwbill

I’ll say. I had to leave the room, but, I knew the Wolverines would prevail.

rwbill

ESPN is coming up with “ESPN W” ?  I do like watching women’s college fast-pitch, which men became too fat and lazy to play anymore.

Kate


The Wings played a complete game tonight. 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Win!  5-point road trip, as someone guessed.  

Kate

Wow! 2 in a row! WE WIN!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Until the next time, or next thread.  Whenever that is!

Cigar-Nurse

Very good way to finish a road trip.  Until Wednesday.  Have a great rest o the weekend 19. 

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Until next game - have a good turkey day!
