Abel to Yzerman

Do you know the way…

... to the Eastern Conference? It seems like the NHL's "Top Men" have done their best to make the Wings think they're still in the West.

At least this time they've come to us - and that's a good thing, right? What's that? The Sharks are 7-0-1, with a +23 goal differential? They're 9-2-1 vs. the Wings in the last 12 games? There's only TWO defensemen playing for Detroit tonight that have more than a half-season of NHL hockey under their belts?

Well, at least Tatar's getting into the game, and NHL's The Wheel of Justice gave Cody McLeod 5 games for trying to pop Kronner's head like a zit on prom night... that's... well, that's something to be hap... yeah, I can't even get excited over that. This will likely be a massacre, and Cleary will still play "realgud" regardless of how many times he trips over the his own feet.

This is RedMenace filling in for The Master Chief... hide the pets and pepper your angus. It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Not a good thing when Miller-Andersson-Tootoo is your best line of the night.

Seems like I’m a few seconds behind here.

Plays like that are why XO isn’t quite ready yet.

I’ll say this: taking the Sharts to OT is fantastic at this point.

So with Kronner out, Kindl leads the Dmen with 24 minutes of ice logged. XO last with a respectable 16 minutes. Damn good effort from the D too

You know, as much as I’ve bagged on him, I’d like to see Smith get a goal here.

I was hoping Babs would pull Howard for those last six seconds with the face-off in front of the San Jose goal. Got a point already, not much to lose.
