Gambling In The Neon…It’s All About The Road From Here On In

And for the first time ever, Jackson Browne makes a Live Blog appearance.  Okie will get the reference.  Kate might too. RWBill also.  Actually, all you bastards (and bastardettes) are older than me. You should all get it. Except for Herm, who's still like 16 which makes what we did with H2H disgusting and illegal.

The storyline from this point forward is going to be incredibly simple: If the Wings win on the road they're in.  If they don't, the streak stops at 21.  That simple.  We've all read about what a great job our Uncle Mike has done with an injury-depleted lineup. The Diggers are writing daily manifestos, pledging their love and everlasting allegiance to their very own Joe Carroll.  And now that Justin Abdelkader scored a clutch, skilled, late-game goal the other night in the most tense of all situations? You, we, I have nothing to bitch about.  Validation for Mike Babcock. By all means, keep that checking line together.

Oh, I'm posting this early because I predict Darren Helm plays today and when it's announced I want to look smart.

But it's the road.  The Road. That's going to determine our joy quotient the rest of the way.  JB (not the JB mentioned above but that's a nifty coincidence) will explain below.  It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Yeah RW. We also had hall of famers on a 3rd or maybe 4th back in the day before a salary cap. Thanks again Gary. Ass.

I think many of the 19 believe Babcock could get more out of the resources he has.Obviously the injuries don’t help either.

Babs has done a great job with keeping goals against to a minimum.  It’s his stubbornness with the 8-13-11 line that pisses me off!

exactly. hes keeping goals FOR to a minimum too. What a waste of #13’s talent. And boy o boy, what was #11 doing today? I think he was playing with a broom instead of a hockey stick.

Looking at how Ottawa is doing without their “Lidström” and “Datsyuk”, Babs start to look really, really bad. I think Kenny fuched up big-time during the last couple of years, not only with the no-trades but he is the one who should get a good coaching staff…

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.
