Abel to Yzerman

Hello California! Join The Late Live Blog Tonight

Good news!  After tonight, only one more late start and that happens Saturday night in Los Angeles.

After that, the Wings latest start will be four 8:00pm ET games.  Three of those are of the Rivalry Night type against Chicago, Boston and Pittsburgh and the other is this Sunday in Anaheim.

Now on to the game..

Babcock says the first 10 minutes are important, I say the rest 40 are too.

The Wings are well rested and should be ready to play when the puck drops. 

No Helm or Datsyuk, but let's hope Jimmy comes up big again.

We watch late, we want a win, so why not make it happen?

It is a live blog bitches...

Have to say this is just about what I expected for this game tonight.

First period looked good.

Nope.  And I wouldn’t start Jimmy in any of those games.

Are we a hard-working, well-oiled machine? Or are we just full of crap?  I guess we’ll find out at the conclusion of tonight’s game.

Looks like we have our answer.

Hmm.  Cleary could be getting a call.

It seems to me that the talking heads talk puck possession as always, but it seems the last 3 years there has been an arms race of big bodies. It seems that teams like LA, Bruins…play something more akin to rugby on skates. That’s a game the wings are just not capable of playing. Not that I enjoy that bulldozer type of hockey, but it’s seems to be effective at this point in time?

Wow. That cheap shot was awesome, Cleary.

Dear Gord, that’s Rosby’s old school.  How do I know?  Douche Canoe.

Yeah, that’s a suspension, Bucktkets.

Looks like the top Eastern team would be on the Wild Card bubble in the West.

Well, look at the bright side.

Pavelski was denied of a hat trick *again*
And Mrazek had another perfect period of play!

Moving in the right direction, guise!!1

I turned that shit off about an hour ago, but I hung out and talked with you degenerates anyway.

Buenos Nachos everybody!

All 19 of us did, I think.

I’m not sorry I stayed up for it, either. I’m just sorry it fuching sucked.

Two games, back to back, this weekend. We had better bring our A game and hope to Gord that we don’t fall too far in the standings.

I hope Cleary gets a few games off to think about how bad he sucks, because that means Babcock can’t play him. Sadly, it also means more ice time for Sammy.

Call up Tootoo.

broke my dvr fast forward button this morning replaying game!

The team chemistry is amazing to watch this season and I think not one player should be waived or traded by the deadline.

You hear me Kenny Holland. Stay the course and players like Kindl, Sammy, Cleary, Quincey and remarkably inconsistant face-off man Andersson will surely carry team deep in playoffs. who else did I forget that has been mediocre overall.

Another 8th seed race er wild card (stupid new playoff seeding format.)
