Road Trip

11/12/2022 at 10:00pm EST

Hi y’all and welcome to tonight’s game. For those of us here, I hope you’re all ready to pull a half- nighter. It’s a late start to begin the road trip, and, the Wings need to knuckle down and play some of their best hockey right now. There’s no sense in dwelling on the last outing. It’s done and gone. The Wings need to come back to Detroit with some more points in the standings right before Thanksgiving, or, the quarter pole as it’s referred to.

It’s the Wings vs the Kings. The puck drops at 10:30 PM ET/7:30 PM PT, and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also BSW and NHLPP/ESPN+.

It’s a Live Blog!



Kate

So Howie is the last goalie to win against LA? 2018? That’s what Keats and Howie just said. 4 years ago. It’s time dammit…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Bad ice tonight per Nedeljkovic. He says it’s brutal…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

HippyDave

*yawn* I gotta stay up for this one?

Gotta say the responsiveness on KK has gotten quite good in these last couple weeks.

KateHippyDave

I thought you were oot there somewhere West of the Mississippi….. Eh?

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

I think the real question is, do we still have it in us to pull a half-nighter?😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Hi Everyone, looks like a tough one tonight.

Calquake

Hola 19! Since there's a good chance y'all won't make it through the whole game, I'll drop my joke of the game early.

What was Babe Ruth's favorite inning?

The bottom of the fifth.

rwbill

I haven’t watched much college football other than Michigan and a little Michigan State, but this Washington - Oregon Duck game is crackin’

Paul

I'm here in body and mind right now.  Body may fade quickly since I've been up since 4am.  Significant other left early to see her daughter and forgot to shut off her 4am alarm.  I could not fall asleep again.

Longest day for me in recent memory.

KatePaul

You’re excused Paul. I hate when I have problems getting back to sleep. Circadian rhythms are being messed with right now too. Effin clock bull crap. Just leave it EST. Forget DST.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

CalquakePaul

If the Wings are behind by 2 or more after two don't bother.

Kate

Nedeljkovic has got to stop that first shot…..Just sayin….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Edler is still playing? Wow!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Kubalik... More JUJU!

Cigar-Nurse

Howdy 19. Two goalies with goals against over four.  Expect an 80’s style game. LGRW  

Don’t know how long I’ll last tonight. Was up early today packing boxes to send to the troops overseas. 

rwbill

FFS that was a horrible start, but fought off a couple of chances and tied it up! Remarkable.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

2 questions.... anyone watch the Griffins tonight? I noticed Edvinsson wasn't playing anyone know why not?

Cigar-Nurse

Like the old school Kings jerseys. 

Kate

They’ll call that every time….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Ned gives up another soft un. Gotta clean er up. 

rwbillCigar-Nurse

I gave a down arrow not because I disagree but because it has negative, true facts.  Maybe the up arrow is deserved b/c he does gotta clean er up.

Kate

I don’t know if you’re getting the same annoying commercial, but, I’m going to blow up the fuching Yellow Brick Road before the season ends…🤪

dcaKate

Watching the LA feed so I am getting California lottery commercials with paper being crumpled up and thrown into wastebaskets and somehow it related to the instant ticket of Space Invaders…right now they are interviewing a girl with cancer (in 2 yrs 9 months remission) who sang the national anthem (her make a wish). Who started following hockey when she was in the hospital.

Katedca

Hope the girl beats the cancer for good. Any commercial is better than this messed up version of OZ…..

rwbillKate

For sure, and I don’t even understand it.  I’d rather see Dr. Rick or even Flo and Jaime.

rwbill

gonna make some hot tea. That may give me some focus for a while but may lead to sudden crash in half hour.

Cigar-Nurse

I have now noticed I need to refresh the page before posting or it gets lost. 

dca

Wow…an actual shot on net. Took like 16 minutes but good for the Wings.

Cigar-Nurse

We’re good RW. I just try to be objective whether it is good or bad.  

Kate

Audio difficulties…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

The irony of Claude Lemieux being Seider’s agent isn’t lost on me……

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Rumbear

Kate!
After multiple login attempts I appear to be here!

May have spilled a dollop of Old Fashion whilst typing and, uh umm, swearing. <cough, cough>

Who starts a NHL game at this UnGodly hour?
Factoring in Daylights savings, it must be something like 2:00 AM in Detroit.  

Yet here we are skating on ice, laid over an afternoon basketball event, poor some Rum in that slushy, eh?

LGRW !!!!!


KateRumbear

Hey there Rummy! So nice to see you this season. Bill is looking as debonair as usual. You most likely will have to refresh the page before commenting.

dca

Second game in a row Seider’s defensive partner is so high that Seider is being force to cover two and ends up covering neither.

Calquakedca

Damn that legalized marijuana. :)

KateCalquake

Damn the illegal marijuana…..😉 I don’t partake, but I would if it was legal. Purely for medical reasons…… I honestly worry some jagoff will taint the illegal stuff with fentanyl……… Too paranoid to take any chance.

rwbill

That one Detroit writer who said that if the Wings get less than six points on this trip would be a disappointment must have been high also.  6/8 on a road trip was optimistic when they were SC Champs, much too much expectation for this group.

Cigar-Nurse

7 shots on goal in half a game is not gonna cut it. Get shooting boys. This goalie is their Ned. 

dca

They scored again…another blowout loss…


At least LA’s broadcast advertising is interesting: USC, Pepperdine, Vancouver, and Jameson.

Calquake

much too much expectation for this group.


This what happens when you win a few games. All of a sudden there's talk of streaks or available points or even talk of playoffs. 
Hardly.


Kate

I know it’s hard to see the puck when a few bodies are in the way, but, still……..

Rumbear

Ahhhh... there are peoples out there!
Had to change the avatar, olde one disappeared and Ima more of an Old Fashion guy this season.

Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy Rum & Coke but that is mainly for

cardio workouts.

rwbillRumbear

You getting this broadcast in your plane , bro’ ?  You’re living in that thing.

Calquake

By the way, you're all forgiven if you drop off. The next 4 foals are huge.

dca

LA are down 1 of their bottom six (Lemieux) so the rest are double shifting…


just sloppy no shots on goal on a power play

rwbill

Manon coming up, wow!

I do have to refresh after every post before I can post again. That’s a useful filter on me.

Katerwbill

Manon is in the house. Even I’m excited 😄😄😄

rwbillKate

Me too!  “Aroused” may be a better word.

Katerwbill

I really hated to see her depart the broadcast crew. She really knows her stuff.

rwbillKate

Me too, only 1 year with FSD/BSD. FSD lost a good young lady 8-10 years ago to the NYI and Mets broadcasts.

Paul

Jimmy Howard needs some work.  I said the same thing about Osgood when he first started his TV gig and he has improved.

rwbillPaul

That was exactly what I was thinking when Jimmy was first on.  Ozzie has really relaxed since his first year, I expect Jimmy will too.  He’s a good guy so hope things work out for him.

Rumbear

RW, Im still a budget minded guy so I restrict the WiFi on the airplane. Texting and mail, only. 


Manon!!! no part of the Kings "journey"...


LGRW !!!!!

Kate

Manon is very well suited for her responsibilities and position with the Kings. All the best to her.

Rumbear

Jimmy needs a Pepsi or two...back to you Mick!

rwbill

Beautiful PP passing. That’s the Red Wings? Really fast start this period, at least for two minutes.

rwbill

99 luftbalon on the Kings’ organ !  

Cigar-Nurse

Larks makes it more interesting.  Keep pushin. 

rwbill

Vrana

Fabbri

Bertuzzi

Soderblom

Missing a lot of goals in these absences.

Walman will be suiting up this month.

A lot of missing TOI, but I guess it gives the organ-I-zation more opportunity to evalutate the depth of the roster against NHL competition.

rwbill

Giving the boys credit, they’re putting some good effort out there.  Hope they don’t give up a goal in the pro-cess, that would be deflating.  They’ve got three days until the next game across town.

Calquake

As long as there's effort I'm satisfied.

Kate

At least the guys aren’t laying down. I’m seeing effort….. a bit late, but it beats a blank.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!!

Kate

Noooooooo! Don’t pull Nedeljkovic yet!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

We pulled the half-nighter! I’m proud of youse senior citizen types…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Hronek make er a one shot game. One more boys. 

rwbill

Ugh, a loss, too many early goals not hard enough to play against.  

Kate

Oh well. At least they made a game of it. Next game 19….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Made a more interesting game in the 3rd.  

Until Tuesday.  Nite 19. 

Calquake

Could've been worse. Later all you wonderful reprobates.
