A2Y- Trying To Stay Upbeat

12/21/2022 at 6:30pm EST

Good evening and welcome to one and all. I’ll just get right to it. The Wings blew a 2-0 lead the other night to extend the losing streak to 6 in a row. They were definitely out matched by a better team. Sure, there were some bright spots, but, the best part of that game was keeping Ovechkin from tying Gordie Howe’s record.(When playing against Howe’s team.)

Tonight the Lightning come to town looking for some pay back for sure. They come in after losing to the Leafs last night, but, that will only make them harder to play against IMO. I’m trying to not be a big downer here, but, it is what it is. Okay, trying to stay upbeat, there are positives here, somewhere. The Wings did win against the Lightning the last time we faced them, and, played probably the best game we’ve seen in a very long time. I’ll leave it at that…..

It’s the Lightning vs the Red Wings. The puck drops around 7:00 PM, and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit Extra and the Red Wings Radio Network (97.1 The Ticket in Detroit). Also available on NHLPP/ESPN+ and BSSUN.

It’s a Live Blog!

Thank you Kate. I will try and pop in during the game. sorry I haven't been around for the blogs, too many things going on.

Be well and Merry Christmas!

Calquake

Yep, it's another game. The few bright spots, in my eyes, are Berggren and Hronek. Husso deserves some praise also. The Wings are who I thought they were. A team with more talent that will win 5-6 more games than last year. The rebuild (Yzerplan) continues.

KateCalquake

High praise for Husso. Hronek is playing up to his potential, and Berggren has been a pleasant surprise. I’m hoping Cossa pans out for the Wings as well as Vasilevskiy has in Tampa.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Hola 19. I agree Cal. The only reason we are above Ottawa and Buffalo right now is having Husso vs their goalies. 

Let’s see how lone we stay in this game against a mad lightning team that lost bad yesterday and against us earlier this month.  LGRW 

bigfrog

0-1 As I expected. Trouble logging in. Again. Paul please fix this website.

Kate

WTF? I don’t think so…..

Let’s Go Red Wings!!!!!

bigfrog

Pittsburgh 5 on 3. May get ugly fast.

Kate

Crap over the glass…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Sumbitch, Bitches!  

One down on the scoreboard, and two down on the ice.

Kate

Just shoot the damn puck!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Mickey sounds exasperated with the lack of connection on the passing…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Zebras are awful! 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

You gotta love hockey players. Just watching the Bolts player literally crawling to the bench after that shot went off his leg…. Man, that was epic!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Ollie is jolly. Way to go. 

KateCigar-Nurse

Nice Santa reference CN.😉 Ready for the big freeze?

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-NurseKate

Oh yeah. Picked up beer,cigars,and bogo kielbasa at Publix today. 

KateCigar-Nurse

How is Publix kielbasa? I have a few lbs in the freezer. I’ll grab more on the bogo if you think it’s good. 

Cigar-NurseKate

It’s called Holmes smokehouse. They are from Texas and it is as good as I can find for a commercial brand down here.  

Kate

Craptastic! Get er back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Budd Lynch goal…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Nice comeback goal by Rasmussen in the Budd Lynch minute. 

rwbill

Ras has really grown into his role and become a solid NHL player.

damndogrevenge

That pass from Suter to' What's da Maata with you' on the first goal was sweet. I just saw the replay.

rwbill

My daughter loves the Publix bogos in FL.  I need to check for them more, although I do tend to get stuck in the deli and bakery section at Publix. They are evil.

Cigar-Nurserwbill

We take advantage of the bogo a lot. They tend to run in cycles so we will wait em oot when they go on sale again. 

Cigar-Nurse

Way to go Larks. 

Bah. Shake it oof Erne. Get one back kid.  

Kate

Boooooo! Get er back!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

EthrDemon

Ugh, I was looking for a #snipshow image to celebrate that Larkin goal & they give it right back.  Blame my hubris

Kate

We need to win these faceoffs.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Putting them on a power-play to start the third period. That’s not good.

damndogrevenge

Ras just needs a fight for a Gordie Howe hat trick, but i prefer he gets another goal

Cigar-Nurse

Elmer with a early Christmas gift.  Keep er goin.  

Kate

It’s gonna get real now…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Sutter quietly having a good game with limited minutes. 

Cigar-Nurse

Larks x 2.  Skate to throat now.  

Cigar-Nurse

Rasmussen deserves an assist there. If it was Rosby, there would be no question. 

rwbill

Quite a period for the wings.  Can they hold a2-goal lead in the 3rd?


like ET said, “ Ell-ee-ottt”

Kate

Seider kinda grabbed at the zebra.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Bill_H

Let's see...an assault on Seider so he should get two minutes for daring to stand up for himself.  Maybe the refs might get this straight - nah!

Kate

Hair pulling bitchy Lightning player….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

TB moaning all game on all calls not goin their way.  

rwbill

Jeez -oh - pete’s  don’t let them bare in on the goalie and rip those shots .

Kate

Craptastic! Lock this down!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Blash says, ‘See? I told you pulling the goalie with 4 minutes left is a good idea.’

rwbill

With 2:33, this game is NOT OVER. 

Shutty my Whore Mouth.

Cigar-Nurse

Perron with the ENG. 

Rasmussen too with 2.  That should do er. 

rwbill

I’ll say again like I said earlier and last year,  Rasmussen has really adjusted his game to become a dependable regular NHL’er.  That ain’t easy.  Ask Zadina.

Calquake

Hooray! A win is a win. Later reprobates.

rwbillCalquake

3 points against Caps and TB, taking that perspective it’s a good week so far lol.

Kate

See y’all next game 19.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Rasmussen finally figuring to use his body instead of his reach. Elmer needs to do the same. 

Good win that didn’t look possible with a 1 nil deficit and a 5 on 3 2 minutes into the game. 

Until Friday. Have a great night 19. 

rwbill

Jebus, Franco Harris dead.  Makes one feel old.  And vulnerable.
