A2Y- Show Up With Confidence

12/29/2022 at 6:30pm EST

Hiya and welcome to all. Thank you to the 19, for toughing it out yesterday when most fair weather fans would have bailed. I’m thinking about the epic comeback last night in Pittsburgh, and, hoping there were lessons learned. Games like that don’t happen very often for the Red Wings, and with that in mind, one would hope they come into Buffalo tonight fully prepared for what awaits them. The Sabres have had a long layoff, but, that doesn’t mean they’re not ready. They have won the first 2 meetings against the Wings this season, so I’m hoping the Wings have discarded the past, and show up with confidence tonight since they’ll be playing in back to back games against a well rested team that have won their last 4 in a row.

It’s the Wings vs the Sabres. The puck drops tonight around 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+, SN360, SNE, SNW, and MSG-B.

It’s a Live Blog!

Husso unavailable tonight, Hellberg starts, Ned on the bench.

Hola 19. Hope Husso is ok. 

Let’s start on time today and keep Buffalo in their long winter’s nap. LGRW 

KateCigar-Nurse

Maybe the flu, or the Rona? It would explain last nights struggle in net. I did see him take some rough stuff on the 4th goal against….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Mickey is in the building! 😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Let's hope the Wings fare better than the posting of comments. (Just kidding Paul)

Cigar-Nurse

Bah. So tired of the Rona. It has ruined all my family parties here and in the mountains this holiday season. 

KateCigar-Nurse

Sorry to hear that CN. I sincerely hope everyone is on the mend. I guess it’s not going away for a while…..

rwbill

Evenin’ Bitches! 
i missed the first 10 minutes.  Yes I’m also running slow. Like the web site.

Congrats to those who hung around for the epic comeback last night.  Lets not fall behind by 4 tonight.

Kate

Boooooo! Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Paul

Sorry for the issues tonight.  We had a server problem and the database had to be restarted.  Is it 2023 yet?

Calquake

Look at it this way bigfrog... with your help we may set a new record for comments tonight. :)

Kate

What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate……😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Craptastic! Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Ok.  Here we go again. Next 3 foals are huge. LGRW 

rwbill

I think back in the Stanley Cup 2008 year that we had some 1300 comments for a game.

rwbill

Not too many years ago, I guess it was, come to think of it, the next logical in line for Red Wings Captain was Justin Abdelkader. Then he got married.

Cigar-Nurserwbill

Well ya know what Mick told Rocky in his gravely voice; “ women make weak knees”.

bigfrog

0-3 Well at least a split of the 2 games.

Kate

Someone tell the Wings they’re not in Pittsburgh anymore…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Well this is turning into a clusterfook.

Cigar-Nurse

Oh hronek.  Still have half a game to go. LGRW 

bigfrog

0-5 Either Buffalo is that good or the Red Wings are that bad. Which is it?

Kate

Here comes Nedeljkovic…?

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

VPalmer

What Hronek did during the break? First 3 goals are totally on him, but the whole team I think averaging a turnover per shift.

rwbill

Had to change devices.  Wow is this game fugly, again.

Cigar-Nurse

Was eating dinner and the implosion continues. Will we see Ned now? I don’t think so.  

BTW Cal, how are you dealing with the rain/snow?

Calquake

And there goes the site hiccups again.

bigfrog

One Consolation. After tonight's game the Red Wings only play Buffalo one more time this season.

Kate

No Nedeljkovic. Well, that is sending some kind of message. I just don’t know what….

Kate

Uh, the next 4 goals are huge..😄😄😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Whoo. The walrus man. Time to get hot again. 

Kate

Uh, the next 3 goals are huge😄😄😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Uh, the next 3 goals are huge😄😄😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Osterle.  Making it interesting.  Keep er goin. 

Kate

What a load of zebra crap….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-NurseKate

Yup. If there was an infraction,then they both should have been penalized 

utahgentile

Weird / soft penalty calls tonight

rwbill

Soderblom’s stick work on his assist was something to see.

rwbill

Well, I’m sure this game is a lot easier if you do not fall behind by five goals, but they have made some pretty good plays around the net, and with a little luck could have another one or two already.

rwbill

Empty net !  4:55!  
Blashill lives on!

rwbill

I think Larkin got a little lackadaisical there.

rwbill

Well they still gotta learn how to play 60 minutes.

Kate

Oh well. Next game 19.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Thanks folks and kate and paul,  until next time.

Cigar-Nurse

Oh well. Nice to be with y’all once again. Until New Year’s Eve,goo night 19.
