Hold On, Cross You Fingers

12/17/2022 at 12:45pm EST

Good day to all, and welcome once again to the LB. The Wings are not looking too good of late,(injury wise)and at the time of this writing, Larkin, Hronek, and Maatta are all game time decisions. They(the Wings)were manhandled the other night in Minnesota, which saw Hellberg make his first appearance in goal this season, and, with Soderblom scoring the only goal in his first game back. A bright spot for sure.

The Wings face off today against an Ottawa team that is coming in hot having won their last 3 games. Only 4 points separate these two teams in the standings, with Detroit holding a slight edge, but, that doesn’t necessarily translate into being equally matched on the ice. So hold on, cross your fingers, and hope for the best…

Vrana was at practice yesterday without an exact timetable for his return, but that is very good news for him and the Wings.

It’s the Sens vs the Wings. The puck is set to drop around 1:00 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+, TVAS, and TSN5.

It’s a Live Blog!

Hola 19. Now’s the time to get points against a division rival in a similar rebuild. Need to get more scoring from Kubie,Copp, and Perron. LGRW. 

Way to go Joe. Keep er goin.

Afternoon, Bitches !

Nice start to the game, you can’t go wrong throwing the puck at the net.

Thanks for the LB to Paul and Kate.

rwbill

What do you say to the guy that invented the toilet, on his birthday?

Happy Bidet!

plop plop fizz fizz oh what a relief it is....

Cigar-Nurserwbill

More straight poop. The inventor of the modern toilet was Thomas Crapper. 

rwbill

That was actually quite an effective looking power play.  They passed like they had an idea where their teammates were.  Remarkable.

rwbill

Unplanned pylon goal!  Justin Abdelkader would be proud.

Cigar-Nurse

Way to go Erne. The Wings have doubled their goal output in the first 15 minutes of the last 2 games. Keep on grinding. 

bigfrog

2-2 Didn't take long. A good PP by Ottawa.

bezukov

Pretty lame call considering all the holding and hits after the play Ottawa has been doing.  

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Erne!

hope this helps

bigfrog

The Red Wings PP has been horrid of late.

Cigar-Nurse

Bah. Another bad bounce goal against. 

Not a smart penalty by Larks. Ottawa is getting in his head and getting him off his game. Straiten it oot Captain. 

Calquake

Women consider me ugly until they discover how much money I have.


Then they consider me poor and ugly.

Kate

for VENDETTA 😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!




Kate

#9! What a magnificent athlete! 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Who’s been yapping at Mickey? Chintzy call IMO.

Let’s Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Booooooo! Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bezukov

Ottawa’s been doing that shit all game long.  

Katebezukov

The word is out. The Wings are soft… I hate saying that, but, whatever…..

bezukovKate

They’ve been saying that back since the Wings only had seven cups.  

Kate

Surprised Seider didn’t see that one coming……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Merde. Can’t fault Husso on any of those goals against. Just sayin 

bigfrog

A soft team with no confidence right now.

Cigar-Nurse

No Trevor. Elmer’s sister plays for USC upstate in Spartanburg SC. 

rwbill

So we’ve taken a jaunt into the muffdive this afternoon.

rwbill

Hronek!!  Just when I was going to say on a 5x3 they haven’t put a shot on goal yet.

rwbill

A penalty yikes.  the Chariot heard ‘round the world.

Cigar-Nurse

Change of d pairings. 53-96,8-2. Bout time. 

Calquake

I have to say... it's been an entertaining game so far.

Calquake

My friend's Tinder bio says his 'office' provides great views of the city, he drives a $500,000 vehicle and he's paid to travel.

Unfortunately his dates are always disappointed to find out he's a bus driver.

Kate

What does it mean when a man is laying in bed calling a woman's name and gasping for breath?

She's hasn't held the pillow down long enough😄

Kate

Boooooooo! Husso was screened by Chiarot.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bezukov

I feel like a loser bitching about the officials, but suffice to say, they’ve made this one easy on the Senators.  

Cigar-Nurse

Bah. Another bad break bouncing oof a linesman. Get er back. 

rwbill

PP!  Do something positive here and tie up the game.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

PooBah is storming out of the house...

until next game.

rwbill

Well that was a perfect 2x1 play, patient pass and easy tip in.

Cigar-Nurse

4 special teams goals against nil.  Not effin good. 

rwbill

Sexy foreplay!

Oh, nope.  Six on four play, sorry.  I got excited.

bezukov

Frustrating game.  Ottawa deserves the win.  Just hard to take after how the calls went and when most of their goals were off lucky deflections.  

rwbill

We’ll look back at the first half of December as the stretch where the Wings lost contact with the playoff peloton.

Calquake

Until we meet again. Later reprobates.

bigfrog

3-6 Final Ottawa had 3 PP and 2 SH goals sums it up.

Cigar-Nurse

Well that sucked. Too much poke and hope once again. Can’t blame it all on injuries because all teams go through it in a lone grueling season. No time for a pity party. Must fight through it. 

Until Monday. Have a great rest o the weekend.
