Reminiscing

11/03/2022 at 6:00pm EDT

Good evening to everyone. Tonight’s game is going to be played before a crowd that mostly will remember the glory days of the memorable Wings teams that were an NHL powerhouse for many, many years. The Wings are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Cup Team that ended a 42 year drought.
While reminiscing is nice, most of the players on this Wings team today were youngsters, toddlers, or, maybe not even born way back then. They get to learn firsthand from the guys that raised the Cup all those years ago. But, the game has changed since the good old days, and it’s time to look forward and make new memories. We should all enjoy tonight’s celebration for what it’s worth, while keeping our eyes on the future. Enjoy!

The pre game festivities are set to begin around 6:PM and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit.

It’s the Capitals vs the Wings. The puck drops tonight at 7 PM and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also NHLPP/ESPN+.

It’s a Live Blog!

This is great. Homer! and his magnificent ASS!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Paul

Washington and Detroit will be taking warmups on the Belfor ice.

Kate

It really warms my heart to hear Scotty Bowman give Ozzie some much deserved high praise. 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Ozzie was the 'workingman's goaltender' while Dom was the David Blaine of goaltenders.

Kate

And D-Mac was the guy that lit that fire. The two most important goals that ended the 42 year drought.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

CalquakeKate

And the moves he made on the one goal he never executed before or after that. It was a moment in time.

Kate

I really like these features on here Paul. The edit is a great example. Thanks.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Wouldn’t you know, BSD is blacked out here cuz playing the Capitals.  I can get the Caps broadcast, who are usually effusive in their praise of the Red Wings organ-i-zation, but does anyone have a BSD link?

Calquakerwbill

Wish I could help. Center Ice was incredibly cheap this year for me.

Katerwbill

Wish I could help. I’m way outta any market… so, no blackout for me except Hurricane games.

Kate

The Wings had better “shake a leg” as my Gramma would say….😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

DRW need to beg Karen Newman to come back. New singer screeches.

Calquake

"Boy can he unload", says Mickey.  TWSS.

Calquake

Until Bert and Vrana and Fabbri get back the Wings have to play 'defense first' hockey and capitalize on offensive opportunities if they want to be successful. They're not there yet.

Cigar-Nurse

He went down easier than a hooker on Cass avenue.  Kill it. 

rwbill

Husso proving to be a great acquisition, especially tonight.

rwbill

Wings have put on more icing than a five-year old’s birthday cake.

Kate

Boooooo! And congratulations #8…….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Typical Ovie goal. Good on him. Get er back.  

rwbill

That was some of the most effective passing on a RW PP I’ve seen in a long time.  Passing with a purpose.  Looked liked one of the 500 PP goals against the Wings in the Blash era.

Cigar-Nurse

Quietly Hronek has been our top d man so far this season. Just my opinion. 

Cigar-Nurse

No goal. Unless you play for Boston. 

rwbill

I don’t think they wanted to risk putting Ovechkin on the PP by losing the challenge.  ( Is that still the rule? ) 

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Anyone else notice Larkin grimace when they hugged him for the goal? he isn't 100% must have an abdominal injury he is covering up.

Kate

I love Mickey! Working his Kuznetsov……😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Nice defense by Lindstrom on Ovie.  

rwbill

Man a few close calls but none went across the line.  Yet. 

rwbill

MoFo another icing.  One of those is gonna come back to bite us.

nctheo

Nick Jensen I always thought was a bad Holland trade. Madison Bowey and a 2nd, or was it 3rd, rd. pick.

Who was that pick?

rwbill

OMFG that was one week ass tripping call.

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah Copp gets oof the schnide. Now have to kill a penalty.  Diamond squeezing time.  LGRW 

Kate

1, 2, 3, Clench! Tight!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

En for Larkin !!   First win over Caps in 5 years !  Right, 2017?

rwbillrwbill

No, 7 years, 2015, what I was gonna say but it didn’t seem possible.

Kate

Bout time…. We win! Yay!

Next game everyone.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Nice win. Baby steps reprobates. Later.

Cigar-Nurse

Larks with the skate to throat.  

We win.  3 stars should be Copp, Husso, Ovie. 

rwbill

Caps network has the “McNugget Minute” when the clock hits 1:00, what we call the Budd Lynch pucker minute.

Kate

Post game conversation is all about Ovechkin. As it should be. Mickey and Ozzie are real pros.

Kate

Mick says, about Shanny, “ the whole story, the Paul Harvey”. Classic Mickey.
