Abel to Yzerman

Good Day, Mr I.  Now Keep It Going. We’ll Even Live Blog It For You.

Hey St. Louis, weren’t you in the running for Prince Fielder?  Gosh. Just not your best week.

It’s relevant because Mr. I’s a Wing, and he’s a Tiger.  Mike Ilitch had himself a day like he used to have back before Gary Bettman ruined the NHL with his idiocy, his Cap that doesn’t work, a lockout that accomplished nothing and the Streisand wardrobe he wears in private consultations with Brian Burke.

I can’t confirm that so, for the sake of the Empire, I take it back.  That last part.

Honestly, this day has tired me out.

It’s an Original 6 classic, one that should occur four times per year. That could have happened up until three weeks ago, when Gary killed the realignment. Oh yes he did. 

Hockey’s best team, guided and molded by hockey’s greatest coach, led by the best defenseman in hockey history and backstopped by the best goalie on earth, plow into Montreal and in honor of the occasion…

...It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

Way to go E52.  Might as well see how many goals the wings can give up.

You can only hope the law of averages means that they’ll shut out their next 5 opponents. At this point, I’m grasping at straws for anything positive,... Oh, Lidstrom’s and Howard are resting now. That’s positive.

She was soaking them in clarified butter, and had a mischievous look in her eye. I left the room quickly.

Wings are getting a back up at the deadline for sure now.  This just proves Conklin is nothing like he was last time he was on the Wings.

Maybe Dangles can fake a hip flexor injury and skip the Gary.ASSG.

I have a really hard time blaming either of the goalies tonight.  There are at least four MTL goals that wouldn’t have happened if a Red Wing had stepped up and thrown the puck carrier on his ass.

The Habs are playing the Wings’ game - active stick checking, neutralizing the neutral zone passing, speedy forechecking, and aggressively keeping the puck on the boards with simple passes.

At this point I say release the Datsyuk Kraken, tell him to only focus on offense.

Even that might not save us now, just think about that

sad thought

I just got a text from a Leaf fan buddy of mine, “tough game…”. Condolences from a Leaf fan? This is truly embarrassing…

That St. Louis game don’t mean dick when you just turn around give the points right back like this.

Well, there’s a bright spot:

Emmerton, Abdelkader, and Holmstrom are even in the +/- stat.

6 goals for the Habs on just 17 SOGs.
