Not Much To Say

12/14/2022 at 7:00pm EST

Hi to one and all. There’s not much to say since we were together only yesterday. The Wings were smothered last night in every way possible. They didn’t play horribly, they just couldn’t handle a really good defensive team that came to play. The positives are that it wasn’t a blow out, and they did hold their own. More growing pains for sure. The negative is we lost Larkin, but, this will become an opportunity for someone to step up and make the move to stay with the big club.

In other news, the Wings recalled Soderblom from GR and placed Maatta on injured reserve retroactive to December 6.

It’s the Wings vs the Wild. The puck is set to drop around 7:30 PM, and will be broadcast nationally on TNT, and can be listened to on the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit.) Ken Kal and Paul Woods with the call. Also available on TVAS, BSN, and, BSWI.

It’s a Live Blog!

Hello 19 from snowy South Dakota. Hellburg in net so Ville can get some rest. LGRW!

Paul

via HSJ,

Asked Wednesday if the Wings had received any news on Vrana, coach Derek Lalonde sounded optimistic that might soon change.

"No updates at all," he said. "We hope to hear maybe the PA or the league, make a statement here soon."

If Hellboy does well in net tonight, Ned may be packing his bags. L.G.R.W.

Go Wings. 

Anybody have a link? TNT is not on fubo, it's not on espn+.

FCS.

PooBah in the House!

Thanks Kate.

Fark you Bettman for making me watch TNT rather than Ken and Mickey because you sold my viewing rights to get more money you piece of S%$#.

Give me back Ken and Mickey or the cat gets it.

Kate

Heya 19! A wise woman called Hellberg in between the pipes for tonight during last night’s LB….

I hope it’s not a mistake….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Fook Jonsey and Dickwad. That better get a suspension.

bigfrog

No penalty? Who do they think they are? Pittsburgh?

Kate

I haven’t had a conversation with my husband for7 years. Wanna know why?

I didn’t want to interrupt him….😄😄😄😄😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

CalquakeKate

I'll bet he's happy too. :)

KateCalquake

We both are. Going on 50 years January 3rd. Lucky man he is….😉☘️

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

CalquakeKate

May I be the first to congratulate youse two on your longevity. Me 'n the better half just passed 44 in September.

SoDak WingNut

Hopefully no one else is experiencing the insufferable Fox Sports North homers. GD I hate them. Just made a comment the Wings are playing tentative "because they don't have anyone like Reaves." FU...your time will come when you least expect it via a Swedish or Deutch shoulder to the teeth/nose. LGRW! 

Kate

Booooo! Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Evenin’ Bitches!

I was late with my times ( at least not my period, thank goodness ).  But I see I did not miss but a couple of shots on net.  We did fire one on net near the end there so things are really picking up!

Offense is pretty offensive especially without Larkin.

bigfrog

A third straight penalty on the Red Wings. Bettman must be in attendance.

Calquake

Wings have been called oot and have not responded.

Kate

And the Wings have to stop being soft….

Howdy 19. Just catching up here and saw the dirty horrible hit on Hronek. Glad to see Chariot sticking up for his mates. We do need someone to keep the flies off our guys or this goonery is going to happen. 

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Reminds me of the old days when Tinordi would mug Yzerman but probie would set things right. Remember Stevie?

Cigar-Nurse

Bah.  4 guys convergence in one corner leaving the other side of the ice wide enough to drive a Mack truck. Smarten up. 

rwbill

Ugh that was ugly goal against.

At least Perron is throwing the body around and hitting people.

rwbill

Other topic:  My left ear is plugged with mucous from descending in the airplane last night.  Would be useful if I was still married.

rwbill

Seider keeps making hits like that I’ll give him a courtesy reacharound.

rwbill

Sigh.  Why does it always come back to that?

SoDak WingNut

Need to aim those slappers about 4 feet higher.

Rumbear

Evening 19.
What in the Hockeytown hell is going  on here in the mental State of Hockey?! TNT and fricking Jonesy...JFC.

Rumbear

Bingo Bango!!


Amazing what happens when you SHOOT!!

Kate

Craptastic! Quit whining and play the fuching puck!

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

I'am behind on my feed. Soderblom!

Damn it....

bigfrog

The third Mild goal was a softie. Not ready for the shot.

rwbillbigfrog

Yeah you’d like the goalie to keep you in the game, especially a goal like that.

Cigar-Nurse

Welcome back Elmer. Keep on grinding kid. 

So hold a stick in the slot,and score a goal. Thanks Gary.  Ass. 

Calquake

When I was younger I used to have a poster of Anna Kournikova on my wall. I had to take it down because I developed tennis elbow.

Rumbear

Great! An interview with Bill Guerin! .... said no one. This is quite an assembly of jockalete dumb a**'s.

rwbillRumbear

Only useful part he stopped skirting the play-in issue and said ‘we’ve got 82 games to figure it out, i’m not a fan of the play-in.’  Smart.

KateRumbear

They all took too many hits to the head… A bunch of coaching wannabes…

Cigar-NurseKate

Yup. Obviously no academic scholars there. This is their only way to generate income. 

Rumbear

Cal, you should switch to racketball. 

Utilizes the wrist more... <cough, cough>

Calquake

This PP is where you change the game... if you want to win.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

You can really see the problem with Larkin out. Nobody can skate the puck up the ice.

rwbill

Remarkably, the Wings are still in this game, or could be if they could generate something.

Rumbear

The Lads seem lost without Larkin. No jump. No zip. No energy.

The killer is, I just cant take the announcers any longer.... see all ya'all saturday

Royal Grand Exalted PooBahRumbear

I can see your point.... PooBah has stormed out of the building...

bigfrog

1-4 That should do it. Red Wings scored one goal in the last two games. The highlight of the game was the Octopus.

rwbill

Well a pretty underwhelming underinspiring game.

Cigar-Nurse

That’ll do er.  Until Saturday. Gnite 19.
