Abel to Yzerman

Vacation’s Over, Boys…

Now it's time to get back to work.

I'm going to keep this short: The Wings are struggling; the Panthers have won seven of their last ten, and the Wings... well, the Wings haven't. However, Zetterman and Ankletaper are back, Babbles has finally had the epihpany to break up the Blundertwins, and hey, it's a road game.

That's gotta be a good thing, right?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

Anyway, sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice, refreshing Live Blog, Bitches.

Physically, yes, but not mentally.

Wings better start cashing in, sooner or later the fickle finger of terrible reffing will waggle our way again

Millers’s grandmother could probably be a better coach than Babs

Damn, if Jurco hadn’t lost the puck there, he wouldn’t have tried that pass.

Just trying to hang on and get that valuable shootout loss point we always seem to get.

Our top two lines don’t have much chemistry. The Andersson line is the only one buzzing very much

These zebras wouldn’t know a legit call if their careers depended on it.

I don’t know. FSFlorida points out it was on Jurco. I really wanted to blame Quincey for something else.

Quincy only needs to be on for two more to get his hat trick.

Why the hell are they on Kindl for that pass? He didn’t have any options, as usual. Lashoff shouldn’ve been able to handle that. Just hit it forward, instead of stopping it…
