    Oh well. Outdoor guy that's a local. He's only here to sell jerseys.

    Blew it. Not other excuse. The players on the floor had a victory, and **** their pants.

    The Wings have the ball with a 60 seconds left, 30 on the shot clock, and a delayed call against Toronto. All they had to do was hold it for 30, and then hold it for another 30. Game over.

    Nope!!! Cloutier took a shot with 15 left on the shot clock (45 in the game). Wings then stared the PP with 45 left...... Harris then took a stupid shot with 15 left on the shot clock (30 left in the game) leading to embarrassing defense by Patten and the tying goal. Game was over at that point. It's a shame. Buchan played great, and the team largely did too.... and the game was lost thanks to two dudes seeking unnecessary glory.

    .....that was way too close for comfort. I didn’t think the gold numbers on the Wings jerseys were that bad but they’re definitely far from ideal. Using a bronze color would’ve been better if they didn’t wanna use black, but I hope next year they switch to black. It’d still fit with the color scheme, and would be way easier to read.

    ‘Twas a Buchan shame that Doug didn’t get a win tonight. He deserved better.

    I mean, at least it was the quintessential stud muffin himself, Tom Schreiber, that netted the tying goal.

    Too much of their offense seems predicated on outside shots and forcing drives to the net 1v1. Nowhere near enough of the off ball movement that would allow them to get to higher danger scoring areas.

    Should have won, but looked like a team . Positive.

    Agreed. I was pulling for the Wings in this one. They had it...but just no need to fire that shot that bangs off the post and leads to the break the other way. Those hurt when you beat yourself. It really was a great game and Philly does not look like an expansion team. They could have beat Buffalo in game one and Toronto tonight. There's just a small margin in many of these games.

    nobody should be proud of that game.....

    the single aspect that made me happy was that an underwhelming Wings squad dug deep, and found a bunch of guts to take a two goal lead due to some of the shittiest Rock lacrosse I have ever seen.............and then choked away a clutch time power play to give up the tying goal.

    The only thing that could have made that deflate more fun for me would have been watching it happen in a hostile road building.

    Otherwise, boring as hell.....only alcohol, and sitting with a good friend I hadnt seen in a while saved it for me.

    Great goaltending and defense. Just absolutely no offense.
    Also, same old wings, get their 5 offensive members on the court with less than 15 secs on the clock. You should have all 5 ready and passing by 20 on your shot clock.

    Expansion team folks. A F up is not.a surprise, but.still.painful. Every new team just wants to game by game growth. This was better.

    Why didn’t Day call a timeout the second they won the face off in overtime to rest his top unit and work a fresh pp

    Bad coaching blunder can’t happen

    and that might have been the worst game I’ve ever seen Jordan hall play and his 0,0 stat line reflects it as welll

    That first half was boring as hell to watch.

    Defense and great goaltending is fine (we had it in CGY last week), but this was just both teams with really poor shot selection.

    Sigh.... the familiar morning after feeling. Snagging defeat from the jaws of victory.
