Abel to Yzerman

It’s A Skate To The Throat Kind of Sunday

I’ve never tried to hide what Game 7s do to me.  They make me a wreck, nothing but a shadow of the calm, composed, well adjusted adult I am on most other days.

For fans of other teams, with expectations much lower than ours?  A Game 7 can mean opportunity, a new way of life even.  If they win, oh the rapture. 

Us? All we imagine is horror.

So let’s avoid that shall we?

Let’s go ahead and press down.  Slice the mother through and through.  Skate to the throat.  Press down for the sake of domestic animals from Michigan to Malibu. 

13 to 12. 

9 until Redemption begins.

this bothers me.

if they don’t score on all these PPs, it’s going to give the momentum to Phoenix.

So they killed a 5 on 3 and scored a shorty right before hand.  I smell lots and lots of danger.

The fail was early enough in the game for Detroit to overcome not scoring on the 5-on-3.

You’re wearing pants?  Mine are long gone.  I’d take off my meat & potatoes if I could at this point.

I hate 5 on 3’s.  I really do.  Regardless of whether the Wings have them or whoever they are playing.  There is just too much opportunity for heartache.  A killed 5 on 3 can be a super confidence. boost.
