The Wings have lost horrendously to the two worst teams in hockey. Consecutive waterboardings. Disgusting.
So, tonite, against the team I believe to be the best in the Western Conference?
Tick Tock and Uncle Mike are starting a rookie because our other rookie (McCollum..is he even technically a rookie?) literally "terrifies" the organ-I-zation, and James Tiberius Howard is exhausted.
Our blue line is decimated and our third line can't score. The fourth line has been instructed to let themselves get hit like Rudy Frigging Stein. Do not shoot. Do not swing. Do not make any offensive gestures. Engelbert's on deck and he's been killing the ball lately.
The Wings beat the Blues last time out after David Backes was tossed due to a clean check to a Detroit tummy. He's going to be angry. The whole team is going to be absolutely frantic. The crowd, amped up on Pall Malls and Ten High whiskey, will be quiet only long enough to swap tongues with whatever relative is on their immediate left.
The opponent. The atmosphere. The Wings, themselves.
All signs point to the worst regular season defeat in Detroit Hockey History.
Two goals for Datsyuk. One for Wally and one for Charlie by God Buckets.
Wings win 4-2.

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.
