to play football, not to play trumpet
For all you schedule nerds like me out there, the new season schedule, complete with times and tv networks is available on the mobile site for the Wings.
Happy Hockey Season
Please, please, let every one know that you don't care about hockey anymore.
Quick Wings update today about the upcoming training camp. The MOU was signed yesterday so camp will begin today at Compuware Arena until Wednesday. Practices will open today at Noon and 1:00 and Monday at the same times. Tuesday practice will start at 9:30 with the Red-White game at 6pm.
Helm, Eaves and Datsyuk are out. Mike Knuble has been given a tryout. Filppula is skating again after an MCL sprain in Finland, Carlo Colaiacovo expects to be ready after a shoulder injury. Nyquist and Tatar are staying in Grand Rapids, while Brendan Smith has been recalled.
Let's get the W tonight, last time we will play Alaska in the regular season. Starting lineup for the night Copp-Treais-Hyman, Trouba-Merrill, Janecyk.
The players seemed pissed which makes me happy because they should feel bad and want to kick ass for that block M they wear.
No TV tonight. Game will have live audio here. Puck drop at 7:35. GO BLUE!
This will most likely be the last regular season meeting between these two teams since I can't imagine AKF wanting to make the long trip down here and vice versa with Michigan.
Enough of the bull shit...getting 6 points this weekend. #letsgoblue
Nothing less than 6 points this weekend. New season starts tonight.#GoBlue.
The hits (no pun intended) just keep on coming for this hockey team.
The following is all per @MichiganHockey on twitter-
After taking a hit head first into the boards, Serville will be out this weekend. His status is "day-to-day".
Mac Bennett will be out a "couple of weeks"
Kevin Clare will not play this weekend in the home series against alaska.
And Jacob Trouba will not play this weekend either. Red wants to give him a rest.
So that is 4 defenders out. Great. Wonderful. Someone get me a scotch.
EDIT: Trouba is not out this weekend.
