It’s The Young Oilers vs. The Whatever You Want To Call Them Wings

A little stat before the game starts- average age of the Oilers taking the ice tonight is 24. and for the Wings, 26.5.

With that out of the way, another must win game for Detroit as we count down those 'must win' games.

Two points needed badly or else the teams the Wings are chasing will be out of reach.

Yes, the three point games hurt the Wings badly, but instead of looking at the big picture, all concentration should be on the next shift.

Little Teemu (#56 in your program) makes his debut tonight and I would imagine if his game is on, we should see him off the fourth line duty.

Howard has to be good, real good and watch out for the Oilers, they tend to score in bunches.

Viktor Fasth is expected in goal for Edmonton, Wings need to stay in the offensive zone as long as possible and work on driving the middle of the ice.

It is a live blog bitches!

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.
