GDT - Game 48: Red Wings (23-16-8) at Stars (22-21-4) 7:00

7  DET 54 PTS,  21 ROW
8  MIN  53 PTS,  21 ROW
9  CBJ  53 PTS, 18 ROW

One stinking point guarantees 22.  Just one point.  A win gives DET seventh place.

I overheard Eeyore saying DET has not had a winning streak longer than 3 games this season.

The Rolling Stones are providing the music today.

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.
