Zetterberg’s Warming Up; Chat Tonite

For those of you concerned Henrik Zetterberg may be too ill (“flu”) to play tonite, he’s in the pre-game skate.

Lack of posts the last few days, I’m aware.  Should return to normal tomorrow.

Tonite…we’ll use the A2Y chat room for the live blog.  Also, if you’re interested in reading a bloggers’ preview of tonite’s game.  Greg Wyshynski from AOL’s NHL Fanhouse spoke with a few of us earlier today.

What Inward Singing Was To Tenacious D…

...we introduce the live blog equivelant tonite here at A2Y.  Is it revolutionary? No.  Is it new to the 19 of us? 

Absolutely.

McCarty: “Wings At The Top Of My Wish List”

Darren McCarty on HNIC radio, via Sirius, this afternoon said he feels good after his first game with the Flint Generals, that he’s comfortable staying in the IHL the rest of the year if no one picks him up, and that he considers his tenure there as a tryout for any NHL team interested in signing him. 

When Kelly Hrudey asked him if there was one team he’d like to play for more than any other, McCarty wasn’t shy in identifying Detroit as that team.

“I’m not going to lie, Detroit’s at the top of my wish list.”

Don’t Try This At Home

DVR’ing the game.  Neighborhood function.  Actually posting when I should be “checking on the kids”.  Not reading comments, or checking scores. 

Torture.

Coincidence? I Think Not

This is frigging crazy.  Last year on January 9th, here is how we started the day on A2Y.

First of all, my condolences to the fans of Buckeye nation.  Watching your team get pasted last night after enduring 51 days of endless fawning must have been difficult.  I ached for you last night Buckeye fans. Truly.

For about 20 seconds.  The rest of the time I pointed and laughed.

What did the rest of the post consist of?  Yep, an ode to the Dive.  Here you go…a little flashback for you.

Oh, That Has To Hurt

Adrian Dater’s in Livonia, and he has a “raging sinus infection.”  The thirteen remaining Dive fans may wish a worse fate on him after reading this.

The Wings are just an absolute machine right now, so I’m predicting a 6-2 final. The question about the Wings remains: will be they be big and tough enough for the playoff grind, or will injuries take a toll on some of their older players?

I think they’re even more skilled than last year and are outskating everybody by heads and tails, so I think they will win the Cup again if their bigs stay healthy.

Dater also says Theodore will be in net tomorrow night at the Joe, which reminded me of another epic Dive goalie moment.

External Sources

It’s January, and that means you’ve tired of the Diggers.  Sorry.  I shouldn’t narrow the months down like that.  It’s winter, and you’ve tired of the Diggers.  So, we turn to some other sources to re-affirm our suspicions that the Wings are, well, the Wings.

Wings/Hawks Live Blog

Hawks feed tonite on Center Ice.  A Hawk home game, no less.  Even for us Wing fans, that’s good to see.  Game intro focused completely on the four game streak.  Hawks have cumulatively outscored Detroit 6-1 in the third periods through the first four games.

Robert Lang’s hair appears to be impeccably coifed.

Game previews can be found at On The Wings and Third Man In.

National Anthems in Chicago are the best of any arena in the continental 48…if this rivalry ever gets renewed it would be something very good for Gary’s NHL.

Sunday Odds and Ends

More Sundin talk.  A must-win for the Wings?  Street hockey in DC and mind games from Uncle Mike.  These stories and more right here on A2Y: Fair and Balanced.

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.
