Abel to Yzerman

Off To Buffalo

Since we're all feeling pretty good after downing the Bruins Sunday, on national TV no less, it's back to Earth for the 19, and off to Buffalo. We all know Bernier was the main reason for the win, and we'll take it, because it just sucks to watch so much losing. Also, there is another reason to still feel slightly optimistic. The return of Mantha, because he can be an absolute beast, and, a pleasure to watch when he's healthy. So there's that, and, that's about it......

It's a Live Blog!

Thanks Kate!

I am hoping my ass can make it through a whole game without falling asleep. Not that they have been boring but 4:30am arrives fast!

Bummer to.see Hirose go back to GR, he played well. But we got Nelly back so this should guarantee a loss. Sorry to be negative Nancy!

Go Wings!!

Thanks Katie. Today is a fubar day for me on so many levels. My older brother passed away early this morning and I’m feeling a little blue. So please dear Red Wings help me escape my concerns for a few hours at least by playing like you did last game. Thanking you in advance. L.G.R.W.

Thank you all for your kindness. Up with the Helm goal, not so much with the answer from Buffalo.

Hello Reprobates .
So sorry to hear of your loss cal.  I can’t put myself in your position although occasionally I have thoughts of what will happen if my older brother or sister become ill or pass away, both healthy at the moment.  Or me.

I imagine it’s a feeling that won’t, and shouldn’t, leave soon, or ever.  Wish we could help.

Howdy 19.  So sorry to hear about your loss Cal. May the good Lord ease and comfort you and your family at this time.
We consider it a honor that you came to the 19 to find some solace at this time.  Thanks for all you do here.
