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.

Everything is as annoying as hell when the game is going like this.

Especially the DC.

It’s cool, we’re good at 5 on 5.

JJ, MO, what’s with the uncharacteristic optimism?  Have you guys been smoking opium?

VooX, do you have some of that new beer with candy in it?  You know, Skittlebrau.  If I’ve made it up, then I’m just going to have to whip up a batch of my homemade Prozac.

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

JJ’s been making the shit all season. I’m only 15 miles away so it’s easy to bootleg across the state line.
Or…I just think if we keep the pedal down for 60 it’ll pay off.

Like MO said, I’ve been selling Kool-Aid all season.

Also, it’s been a very long time since the Red Wings have lost a playoff game in the first ten minutes.

No doubt that it will.  There’s only doubt that they won’t.

A one goal lead and maybe Tippett won’t pull all 5 back and clog the $hit out of the neutral zone.
We’ve seen a litle speed ‘tween the blue lines. It’s just a matter of maintaing the pace.
