Updated below with Voox' annual DC contest.
...it's been a motherfucher of a day. So we're starting way early, as I expect most of you are.
I'm in no mood for hijinks and I hope the Wings aren't either.
The Streak is the Thing right now. Tomorrow we can worry about the next step that baby Jesus told us we should expect every season. But tonite?
Tonite, it's all about 22.
No other team in this damn league can lay current claim to the success of this organ-I-zation. No other team can claim a fan base as rabid as you are, and I'll put ours--with our transplants and our Yoopers and our downriver puck bunnies--up against anyone's, Toronto and Montreal included.
The streak continues tonite because it must. The streak continues because every other team wants it to end, all other fans need it to end, every media member except ours (minus Drew Sharp and Pat Caputo) has the story already written and are just waiting to hit send.
Screw this league, this charade orchestrated by a shrew of a fraud commissioner. Screw you, the fans of every other team. And I mean EVERY other team. Detroit has carried this league. The Red Wings have filled your warm-weather arenas and you can kiss all that revenue goodbye starting next October...finally.
You pray for our demise but you can all suck it because this display of sustained superior performance continues tonite.
Extend The Streak, Wings. Just. Get. In.
It's a Live Blog, bitches. All aboard.
WAIT...DON'T LEAVE YET. This just in from Voox...
Playoff traditions are widespread, so let's get the word out again about our own playoff tradition.

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.
