It certainly feels good to travel again...delays and all. Delta cancelled my flight from Atlanta to Detroit, so now I have to spend a few hours in the Atlanta airport. But, that's alright...I can watch the Wings game I thought I would miss.

The 2021-2022 NHL season kicked off tonight with two games — Penguins v. Lightning and Golden Knights v. Kraken.

Yep, that's right, the Kraken has been released! Seattle is back on the board with the league's newest franchise. The expansion draft was quite friendly to them, too. Lots of talent there — should be fun to watch.

And watching hockey will be different this season, too! The NHL is no longer carrying streams inside its own app, farming that service out to ESPN+ this year. We'll see how that goes, but I'm certainly not optimistic that we'll be able to watch our local feed for all Red Wings games. And Hulu is no help, either, as apparently they have yet to re sign the regional sports networks.

Hockey is back, but so are my streaming frustrations.

Well, I've never seen this in a hockey game before - the scoreboard at Little Ceaser's Arena is malfunctioning during tonight's Red Wings game against the Lightning. The buzzer is going off constantly, seemingly ever minute, on the minute. The refs stopped play when it happened the first time, but told the players to just ignore it after that. So, the buzzer's buzzing but the game continues. It's weird and funny at the same time. And, of course, this is all happening with only 750 fans in the stands because...pandemic

I'm betting someone is on the phone with customer support at Datroniks. We'll see if they get it figured out before the second period.

Blue Jackets defeat Red Wings after Tortorella gets support from GM (

The Red Wings are miserable. Post game analysis focused on stories from Larry Murphy and Mickey Redmond about the apparently legendary hot dogs available at the Colisée de Québec, home of the old Quebec Nordiques. They were apparently square in cross-section, not circular. I watched every minute of the game and post game. Great tv, horrible hockey.

Well, the Red Wings picked up right where they left off. Miserable performance, lost 3-0. Shots on goal tell the story - 43 to 14. Hard to wind a game when you don't shoot the puck. Game 1 has set the floor. Up from here.
