Too Soon To Panic

10/23/2022 at 4:30pm EDT

The Wings seemed to forget how to close out a game the other night, but, it’s too soon to panic in regards to the rest of this season. We all knew going forward this is a team with a new coach, and a new coaching staff, as well as a few new players that hopefully will get it going sooner rather than later.
No excuses though. These are paid professionals that are expected to make the maximum effort, as well as keep the fans engaged, and entertained.

It’s an early game today with the Ducks vs the Wings. The puck drops at 5 PM, and will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN. You can also listen at Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit).

It’s a Live Blog!

Last game was a lesson in that they are not good enough to sit on a lead. Keep the foot firmly on the gas as captain larks said. LGRW 

Paul

Well at least I am here.  

Nice day in Detroit, early start time could be some of the reasons attend is low here, or it could be the site performance which will be adjusted again tomorrow.

Kate

I’m not at all thrilled with the broadcast crew today…😠

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

Hi Kate, they need to play much better today.

Kate

We need to score…

D-Boss!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

1-1 On their second shot. Frustrating. 

Kate

Booooo! That looked sloppy…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Tuned in just in time for the poop. L.G.R.W.

rwbill

Early Evenin’, bitches!

Frequent situation for the Wings, couldn’t clear the puck in front of the net.

Thanks for the LB, Kate and Paul, and thanks for coming around to the other reprobates.

rwbill

“ I know your tall, but you’re not that tall!” Funny, ref.

Hi Kate and 19

Wings need to be aggressive on the fire check for the whole game.

I will be in and out. Its beautiful on the east of Detroit today

Kate

Yeah! Double for Gibson.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbillKate

That’s unusual, have to see the replay for double minor on the goalie.

rwbill

Wow Perron has a real scorer’s shot.  We haven’t really seen that in a while.

Kate

The shove was a cross check with a goalie stick to the back of the neck. Cheap shot. Big ugly cheap shot…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Emily, go away….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

dca

More double minors in this game than I’ve seen in a while.

rwbill

Another PP !!?!  Better chalk up another goal,  those things will even out

Cigar-Nurse

All the penalties here  between these 2 teams like back in the early 2000’s. Keep yer heads up boys. 

dca

I hate these moving boards…so distracting….


and the pixelation when the play goes into the corners….

Calquakedca

Hopefully the NHL learns from that. But don't count on it.

bigfrog

Ducks on the Pittsburgh 5 on 3. You just knew it was coming.

rwbill

Yes and there’s the evening up, to begin with.

Calquake

Husso giving up too many big rebounds.

rwbill

Gonna take a short stroll outside in the light drizzle here.

bigfrog

The Red Wings dodged a bullet. The Ducks PP is anemic. 

Cigar-Nurse

Good kill with ESPN trying to jinx the perfect pk record. 

rwbill

They’re certainly not out of it, because there is a lot of time, AND these are the Red Wings.

dca

Sticking up for the rookie…no problem with taking the penalty.

dca

Gibson has kept them in this game..breakaway save while his team is on the pp.

dca

2 on 1. Zadina has the puck. And instead of passing. He shoots and missed the net. 

—typical

Cigar-Nurse

C’mon Zadina. You slowed down a perfectly good 2 on 1 into a nothing burger.  

nctheo

Good shift by Chiarot - gets physical wo taking a dumb penalty

bezukovnctheo

His contract drew a little heat for Yzerman.  It’s looking more and more like a good signing to me. 

nctheobezukov

It was, and is, good with me. Mo will be all the better for playing with Chiarot. 

dca

Hopefully, Yzerman is on the phone then taking offers for Zadina..

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

PooBah in the house!

Late - needed a nap after that Lions game

rwbill

LOL  “Too many men on the ice”, as he holds up six fingers.

rwbill

Give Yzerman some credit, his signings are really contributing big time so far, unlike most of Holland’s old timers.

Cigar-Nurse

There ya go. Kubalik keeps goin along.  In Stevie we trust. 

rwbill

Would like to see Copp get on the board.

damndogrevenge

Special K!!!! Love this steal from Chicago!

rwbill

Soderblom skating the whole ice.  What quick hands he has.  Nice line there.

Cigar-Nurse

Yeah. Elmer. That line deserved a goal tonight.  

Kate

Baby octopus 🐙 

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Imma hoping this is for real… ☘️😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

TheMealKate

We've played one legit playoff team (LAK) so far.  It's an easy October.  Let's see how that BOS game looks...

But I, too, want to believe.

bezukov

Nice win after that awful Chicago game.  

rwbill

8 of 10 points, that’s what you’ve got to do against the non-playoff teams.  Reminder, they lost to Arizona last year 23 - 1 I think.  Poor teams, but at least they’ve chalked up some points against them, missing 3 of their top 6 forwards.

damndogrevenge

Nice win.

Thank you Kate and Paul. 

Cigar-Nurse

Good win. Way to minimize the ducks chances in the last 40 minutes. Until the next game. Good night 19. 

nctheo

Question for a hockey stat geek...

How is it in a 5-1 win, no Red Wing player is higher than +1 tonight? According to nhl.com game stats.
