The Detroit Red Wings Are In The Windy City

So let's hope the Wings have the wind to their backs during all three periods.

The Blackhawks are being questioned by Coach Q regarding their intensity while Coach B is trying to find healthy players.

Detroit may be catching the Blackhawks while they are slumping, but Chicago went through a hard practice yesterday and say they are ready to bring their 'A' game tonight.

No doubt, it will be a hard game for the Wings to win, but...

Is This Your Typical Chicago Blackhawks Fan/Blogger?

My five reasons for hating the Red Wings.... by Phil Bausk or @LoveShaqBaby (me: a hockey fan?)  of BlackhawkUp at Fansided,

That Damn Octopus

Every time I see it on SportsCenter I gag a little bit. (me: Watc​hing Sportscenter for hockey coverage?)

Brendan Shanahan

I am a bit young to recall his days with the New Jersey Devils and the St. Louis Blues, but even if I could.. (me: stop right there, a bit young...)

30 Years of Happiness

Since 1983, no team in the NHL has been as consistently good as the Red Wings. (me: uh, ok)

Boring Jerseys

The Red Wings jerseys make me want to vomit. They are so boring, and they haven’t changed in years. (me: haven't changed in years is a good thing)

For Taking Chris Chelios

at the ripe age of 12, I was quite unfamiliar with the entire trade/free agency process. When I heard Chelios was going to Detroit, I threw a hockey puck at my bedroom wall.  (me: By age 12 I could recite every player on every team, knew where they were born, what they had for dinner last night, etc.)

It’s The Young Oilers vs. The Whatever You Want To Call Them Wings

A little stat before the game starts- average age of the Oilers taking the ice tonight is 24. and for the Wings, 26.5.

With that out of the way, another must win game for Detroit as we count down those 'must win' games.

Two points needed badly or else the teams the Wings are chasing will be out of reach.

Yes, the three point games hurt the Wings badly, but instead of looking at the big picture, all concentration should be on the next shift.

Jimmy Howard Has Had Enough

via Dana Wakiji tweets,

Howard: We got to win games. There’s nothing else you can say. Got to go out there and execute.

Howard: A lot of us are sick & tired of talking abt it & that’s what it seems lk we’ve been doing. We got to go out there & do it.

39 Percent

That's the chances of the Detroit Red Wings making the playoffs according to Sports Club Stats.

Their percentage dropped 9.5% after the loss to Columbus last night.

Hard to argue right now.  The Wings have to get on a run right now and will need help from others, including no three point games for teams involved in the race.

It is a tough mountain to climb.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
