Abel to Yzerman

Wings, Hawks, Gary’s 13 Game Regular Season: Perfect.

I'm not going to lie. I'd forgotten about this thing until about thirty minutes ago.  Thankfully for you, I usually only need about six minutes to type a standard fact-based, non-biased work of art to keep you happy for a pop or two.

The Hawks are undefeated, invincible, a wrecking ball of talent and starch.  

The Wings are battered, Helm-less, down three defensemen and laden with rookies, castoffs and Swiss men.

Surely, all signs point to a Chicago walk in the park.

Right?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

I’d like to thank Franzen for ruining that five on three.

Franzen got speared in the ribs by a stick, blade portion

Valek, he was speared in the ribs with a stick. Knocked the breath out of him..

And for the love of Allah and anything holy, how hard is it to just shoot the fuching puck?

Posted by RorSchach from Datsberg on 01/27/13 at 09:23 PM ET

Rhetorical question. What are Franzens ribs attached to, since he has no spine?
