Abel to Yzerman

Hello Columbus

For those of you watching the game on NBCSN it will be Dave Strader and Brian Engblom calling the action.

With that out of the way, tonight's game is actually bigger for the Blue Jackets than it is for the Wings.  

But, it is also a huge game for the Wings and hopefully they remember the last time they played Columbus.

The Wings will have to match the intensity of the Blue Jackets and be good on the power play and penalty kill.

Columbus has been awful on the pp lately so the Wings must frustrate them again tonight.

Not much else to say, Bert in, Callahan in, Emmertion back to Grand Rapids.

Every shitf counts, win by one and come home and prepare to play Montreal on Thursday at the Joe.

It's a live blog bitches.

Sticks to the head, legal.  Leaving your skates to deliver a blow, principle point of contact being the head, perfectly legal.  Tapping the stick of an opponent?  Two minutes.

Player safety.  Clearly the NHL is all about player safety.

Granted Dekeyser should have just passed it to whoever was on the near boards instead of going for the drop pass, but the 1st PP unit was abysmal and just set the table for the 2nd unit to continue.

It’s a shame that what should be a great battle between two teams battling for a playoff spot is totally taken over by the guys in black and white.

I have never seen a sport where the officiating dictates the game so much as this sport.  And the. When you watch the highlights the next day,there is no mention of how the refs calls afected the game. Thanks again. Gary. Ass

Yep, Helm got chopped down like a tree—no call

Wow, on that replay of the 2nd Nyquist goal, didn’t realized the goalie attempted to get that called off by flopping after the goal.  Shameful.

The one time they refuse to dump the puck in, they’d rather skate through 4 BJs and lose the puck

As I mentioned a few days ago, sure would be nice to have a game where the Wings only have to worry about playing the opponent.

Gotta give ‘em an assist on the EN goal too, because without their help, there is no BJ lead and no empty net.

Gee, I wonder if the guys in the studio are going to disagree with the call on BJ’s 3rd goal?
