This Is A Test

10/27/2022 at 6:30pm EDT

Tonight’s game is one way of looking at how the Wings measure up so far, by playing against one of the better teams in the league right now. We’ve has some success, but, this is a test. I’m not saying other opponents have been easy marks, they haven’t been, but, the Bruins are a better team than most of the teams we’ve faced so far this season.

Matt Luff is in for Sundqvist tonight due to an upper body injury. As always, all we expect from the Wings is an honest effort, and, to entertain and engage the fans.

It’s the Wings vs the Bruins in an Original Six stand-off. The puck drops tonight at 7 PM, and is broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also available on NESN and NHLPP/ESPN+.

It’s a Live Blog!

Winning or losing isn't highest on my list. Playing a workman-like game is what I want to see. Take the game to Boston defensively and cash in on offensive opportunities. L.G.R.W.

Calquake

Oh yeah, thanks Katie and Paul for providing a refuge from the utter madness out in the world.

KateCalquake

Heya Quaker. We have a few hours of respite from the madness in the world, by entering our own little asylum as it were. Lots of padding on these walls, just in case…..😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Zadina drops any further on the depth chart he'll be gettin' splinters.

bigfrog

Hi Kate and Calquake, not too optimistic about this game, but I don't think it can be any worse than last Tuesday's game. Can it?

Katebigfrog

Hi frog. I’m not gonna say anything. Yet…😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Hola 19. Let’s see the response against a worthy division opponent. 

Copp will pot one tonight. LGRW 

KateCigar-Nurse

Hi CN. I tell ya, I really hope Copp can cop a goal tonight…😄

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Good grab by Husso.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Evenin’ Bitches !!

Proly gonna need some great goaltending and special teams play.  Yes the world is madness.

rwbill

Some reason every time I hear the name Hagg I think of my ex-.  And she wasn’t that great a hockey fan.  Strange.

rwbill

Shit on a shingle I don’t think any Red Wing player in the history of the franchise has ever received such a juicy turnover as Erne did right there.

Cigar-Nurse

An Elmer pinger. Keep er goin kid.  

rwbill

It’s too early to say that Kubalik is my favorite new player, but Kubalik is my favorite new player.

Kate

Booooo! Get it back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Bah. Stop the poke and hope and hit em. That was not good d zone play. Smarten up. 

Paul

Some changes were made this afternoon to allow the comments faster.  There is more coming but has anyone noticed a difference?

Calquake

So far, not the game I was hoping for.

Kate

Larkin seems a bit off to me…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Not to brag, but I have sychic powers.

For example, right now you’re thinking: “It’s psychic, you idiot.”

Calquake

"All you who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand."

Cigar-Nurse

Seems quicker to me Paul. Any time frame when we will be able to have private messaging and the smileys?

PaulCigar-Nurse

They are on the list.  Major issues needed to be fixed first and then the others will be addressed.  If anyone is using Firefox and had issues, those should be fixed too.

Kate

Questionable hit on Veleno.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Bout time they called interference after 3 missed calls earlier. Veleno is going to have a massive headache after his missed hit. 

rwbill

Big PK, given the difficulty scoring tonight.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

almost hate to say it but maybe they should have brought up Smith instead.

Kate

Just shoot the damn thing!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

damndogrevenge

Hi Kate and the 19

Sorry to be late. 

I am glad the refs are only seeing Redwings penalties. Back to back calls. I wonder how bad Veleno's concussion is?

Erne, Sutter and Chariot have been the Wings best players. Robo Copp looks lost along with Hronek.     Let's Go Redwings!





Calquake

This game is showing just how far the Wings have come. And just how far they need to go. Especially in the Division.

Cigar-Nurse

Erne with the spinning table hockey goal. He’s grabbing the cheese for sure. Ya savvy Zadina?

Calquake

Next foal makes or breaks this game.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

It's time for Ozzenstein!

bigfrog

1-3 Thanks to another Ras penalty. Two PP play goals due to him.

damndogrevengebigfrog

I'm sorry but I am tired of the Draft King refs. 2 very weak calls on the wings last period and now another one.

bigfrog

I agree Calquake. You just knew it was coming.

 

Cigar-Nurse

Jebus on a pogo stick.  Wheels coming oof with a 3 spot in 99 seconds.  

Broons just using their strength to do whatever  they want.  

Kate

Shoot the damn puck! Enough of this passing crap….

damndogrevengeKate

Thank you Kate for the blog. I have had enough of this one. Good night all. Be well!

Cigar-Nurse

Kate is right. Something is wrong with Larks. Horrible pp tonight. 

rwbill

Well I’m not sure when the next game is, but I’ll find it.

rwbillrwbill

I guess that is 7 pm Saturday, with the 7:30 M v MSU football game.

Cigar-Nurserwbill

Yep. Will be channel hopping unless there is another blowout in either game. 

rwbill

Yeah tough night for Larkin gets worse.

Kate

I’m still here. I was paying some bills. Is it over?😄😄😄

Cigar-Nurse

Eff the refs. 

Until Saturday night, good evening 19. 

Kate

I know Lalonde has to coach the Blash outta some guys,but, Jeebuz Christo! 
Goodnight all. Thanks for your support…😉😄😄
