Abel to Yzerman

Countdown From Ten

Yep, that's right. Ten more games to go. Ten more reasons to enjoy the 19 of us making merry, while our beloved Detroit Red Wings fall the farthest we've seen in almost thirty years.
Still, there are some players worth watching, and, the commentary here at A2Y is worth way more than the price of admission.

It's a Live Blog!

If I’m being honest I wouldn’t bother watching these last 10 games if not for the 19. L.G.R.W.

Evenin’ Bitches !

Thanks for the new thread Kate.

Tonight’s titanic struggle features the two most inept teams in the category of winning games in Regulation or OT.

Something’s gotta give.  Well, no, it doesn’t.  It may go to shootout 10 rounds.

I gotta give KH credit for unloading Smith. That was a really good move.

Sure did Kate,  KH has made several trades the last few years that got some picks for a player that the receiving team didn’t keep or has not produced well.

I keep hoping Bowey will settle down and in.  Starting to wonder if he will, or if he’s just Brendan Smith 2.0.

That’s twice in a short time where he’s given the puck up near his own net.

I know how bad Larkin wants to drive the bus, but, I would rather he not be playing with a patch on his neck area. Must be still be sore.

Athanasiou playing harder/heavier on the puck has made such a big difference in his game.

Probably did, I was more in search of a joke than accuracy.

At about this point in the game I would say the Wings are fully capable and should be expected to give up the lead.  Hard to say that the Rangers look all that interested but things can happen.

Rangers will have a tough time cracking the Defensive offerings of Lashoff-Witkowski.

Lashoff-Witkowski.

Sounds like a funeral home.
