We’re Back

10/14/2022 at 6:45pm EDT

Greetings to the 19, and, to all who may want to jump in this year. We’re back for another exciting season of Detroit Red Wings Hockey. Tonight’s home opener, Montreal vs Detroit, is an Original Six classic. The Wings have made some additions to the team this year starting with a new head coach, so, a warm welcome to Derek Lalonde and his staff. As fans, we wish you much success behind the bench. Also, we’d like to welcome all the new players into the fold.

There is so much to talk about this season, the “Yzerplan”, new players, young players, and we’ll get to that as the season progresses. For now though, let’s enjoy the first regular season game in this beautiful new home brought to us by no other than Paul Kukla. Thank you Paul, so very much.

The puck drops at 7:00 PM and will be broadcast on Bally Sports Detroit and the Red Wings Radio Network 97.1 (The Ticket in Detroit.) Also on NHLPP/ESPN+ depending on your location.

Drop the puck!

It’s a Live Blog!

Hola Kate and the rest of the reprobate family. LGRW

rwbill

Testing, Bitches !   Welcome to another season, if you can suss it out between the hard jammin’ music in the PA system.

rwbill

I think I’m going to prefer the 7 pm start time, will finish up earlier in the evening. 

bezukov

Good to see Jimmy Howard.  All of him.  

RorSchach

So hard to get a comment going. Haha. Let's GO WINGS! Thank you, Kate. I'll be here.

rwbill

She could sing O! Canada quite a bit faster.

Kate

You’re welcome Dub. I’m thankful for another year around here. Heck anywhere…😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Criminy, get a new singer next time, or we’ll be into 2023 before the second game.

Calquake

Looking forward to 'Line of the Giants' with Ras, Sunny and Lurch (Soderblom).

rwbill

Now my posts are showing at the top, not sequentially.  Maybe reflects my upside down status.

Paulrwbill

That confirms the post is online it then fall into place after a few seconds.

RorSchach

She is definitely not Karen... But I suppose it will do. 

Cigar-Nurse

Hola 19. Here we go on  the start of a new season. Let’s get to a good start. LGRW 

Kate

Big juicy rebound there…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!


Kate

Those boards are gonna drive me nuts……🤪

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

SteebKate

They make the picture blurry, but it's a small price to pay for moving ads on the boards. 🙄

bezukov

Pretty passing on the PP, but no movement.  Can’t stand still if you want goals. 

Kate

I’m liking this….😊

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Soderblom and Vrana. Quite the contrast on the bench. 
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

14 shots!!! That’s an entire game’s worth last year.  Used to be ending the secong period sometimes with 8 shots.

Cigar-Nurse

Wow. 15 shots in the first 10 minutes. Last year, we were lucky to get that in 40.  

42jeff

Evening Bitches!

rwbill42jeff

Jeff, you magnificent bastard!

42jeffrwbill

Hey Bill. Ya been a while since I've stalked these halls. Out working for a living and just moved back up north so really hoping to reconnect with all 19 of my fake friends

Kate

Gallagher is an asshat…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Well there’s a couple of bullets dodged.

Kate

Allen is hanging tight and staying on his feet. Stymying the boys right now…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

First period intermission humor.

Why is it so easy to fool vampires?


Because they’re suckers!

Calquake

What's green and fuzzy and if it fell oot of a tree it would kill you?

A pool table.

42jeff

Ok so this new website...still some bugs ya?

Paul42jeff

Caching is still an issue but being addressed.  

42jeffPaul

Ok yep that's what I seem to be seeing.  Have to refresh a few times for an update.  Look sharp though!

damndogrevenge

Hey Kate and the 19! 

Sorry to be late! 

Holy smokes! That was a fun 1st period!

42jeff

Ok...now it seems to be working.   Wow...post delete?  That would have been handy a few years ago...lol

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

End of the period... Therefore....

biv

Husso up to the challenge in period 1 also. Lets start scoring and then bury 'em.

Cigar-Nurse

So will you be stalking Elmer’s mother now RW? She’s a looker for sure. 

bezukovCigar-Nurse

I’d rather not piss her kid off.   Pretty sure he’s taller genuflecting than I am on my tippy toes.  

42jeff

Finally got to watch that Unrivaled special a couple nights ago.  Fantastic

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

BOOOOOOO! - bad call !!

Cigar-Nurse

Like the forwards coming back with the defensive support. Keep er goin. 

Kate

I’m not bored. That’s for sure….

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Kate

Good shift there. Exciting! Eh?…..

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bezukov

Soderblom on the ice for 6 minutes allegedly.  Dude is a stud.  

bigfrog

Late to the party. Jake Allen is playing out of his mind tonight.

Katebigfrog

Standing straight and tall in that net. We gotta figure him out…..🤔

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Calquake

Kubalik looks like another good addition.

Kate

No way! Not an icing…

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

bezukov

This Allen kid is playing his giblets off.  

rwbill

Well, close calls on both ends that period.

Calquake

Two 8 yr old twins walked in on their parents having sex. They screamed and ran out of the room. One twin turned to the other and said, "What were they doing?" The other twin said, "I don't know but I think Dad was winning."

Steeb

The ad server that the NHL hockey rink has become doesn't look like a hockey rink any more. Hockey rinks have puck marks and scuffs on the boards. This look like it's being played in a bathtub.

KateSteeb

It’s awful. Like a bad trip…….🤔😠

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

HippyDaveSteeb

Agreed, Steve.  It’s hot trash.  More distracting than the glow puck.  I wouldn’t mind so much if it weren’t animated and had some motion blur built in.

Kate

Soderblom! First goal! Wow! What a way to start the season.😉☘️
Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

First Goal of the year and first NHL goal for Soderblom!

Kate

At least they’re making it interesting…….
It’s no place for a nervous person.😉

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

rwbill

Frenetic pace down the stretch!  Love to keep a shutoot.

Calquake

Jake Allen one of the Stars of the Game for sure.

Kate

Seider did very well in that situation.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Cigar-Nurse

Rasmussen with the e netter. Ollie tooo. 

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

Ras with the EN goal Matta with an EN goal

rwbill

Another empty netter to make it 3 - not that it Maatta

Kate

WE WIN! Soderblom gets the GWG as well as his first NHL goal, and the first goal of the season. What a night!

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

42jeff

Well....game was good.  Got to say I'm liking the energy level of the team this year.  Trrying to impress the new coach to keep on the ice i suspect but hey.... 1 win down....hopefully many yet to come

Cigar-Nurse

Good win. Until tomorrow, good night 19. 

rwbill

MIck is great in his checkered flannel shirts.

rwbill

I said last year I think Rasmussen really staked out a niche for himself.

Royal Grand Exalted PooBah

PooBah has left the House until tomorrow.... see you then :)
