Back From The Boonies

Morning all. Understand there’s a hockey game tonite.  May watch it. May not.  I’ll see if I can fit it in.  What’s happened since we last spoke?

Homer’s got a hammy.  Tampa’s got a tool.  The Wings pulled a Wilson.

And the stress train is filled from stem to stern.

An Open Post Because I like All Of You

I’ll be moving around the nation today, finally settling in North Carolina sometime this evening.  I have no idea if I’ll have connectivity there, because I’m not sure the wires connected to the still connected to the car battery connected to the toaster that’s powering the generator are strong enough to handle the whole internet idea.

So, use the comment section here to do your job and post news-related items, your juvenable thoughts, poems and recipes.  Whatever.

Hey. Weird. I’m Doing Ok.

After a regular season loss, like in December, when the Wings have already built a 15 point lead in The Division That Gary Built?  I find it very difficult to post, almost painfully so.  I’ll tell you something about myself you may not have been aware of prior to the moment of this startling revelation.

My moods are kind of dictated by the success of a certain hockey team.

So today, you’d think I’d be on the verge of stepping into traffic.

Is It Memories That Made You A Wealthy Soul…Or A Game 3 Live Blog?

I can’t be sure, but I seem to think there may be a skate on a throat somewhere in Pennsylvania.

I’m guessing it might be a good time to, you know, press down.

Hockey Night In Newfoundland

There’s a rusting steamship aground in a harbor, and draped across that ship today is a banner that reads “Go Red Wings Go.”

That’s about all I could read from Mitch Albom this morning before I threw up in my mouth a little bit. I just can’t, no matter the subject, sit through an entire column from the Delicate Genius.

But I realize some of you can.  Image of the “rusting steamship” is below.

What Is Your Reality?

What do you legitimately expect from the next two games?  I know what you want to happen, except for those of you with tickets to Game 5.  The rest of us?  We wouldn’t mind seeing some mouths shut.

But is that a sound expectation, a sweep?  I’ve tried to open my mind without any chemical enhancements, and it’s hard to do.

Soft In The Mel(l)on

By now, if you’re a Michigan resident, you’ve probably already figured out that a few roadblocks have been deliberately set up to prohibit your attendance at Games 3 or 4 in Pittsburgh.  Eric McErlain at AOL’s FanHouse points us to a Ticketmaster disclaimer.

Mellon Arena is located in Pittsburgh, PA. Sales to this event will be restricted to residents of PA, OH, WV, MD, NY, NJ, DE, VA and the District of Columbia. Residency will be based on credit card billing address. Orders by residents outside of PA, OH, WV, MD, NY, NJ, DE, VA and the District of Columbia will be canceled without notice and refunds given.

A Few Off Day Thoughts

Anybody wonder just how bad things would be for Pittsburgh right now if the Wings were at all effective on the power play?  If the roles were reversed, and that’s a tough one to imagine right now…I know…we’d be pointing at Detroit’s dismal PP numbers: one for fourteen.

But the roles aren’t reversed, and now we can look at that stat and say…what if they get hot?

WWGRD?  Answered.

Chris Osgood dove.  I’ll say it up front, and the replays confirmed it seconds after it happened.  Sykora skimmed him and he took a seat.

Got it.

But that won’t be the last memory Wing fans have of him, nor will it define an amazing postseason run. 

Gary Roberts?

Halfway There

The Pens probably don’t realize it, because they spent the last 8 minutes trying to cheap shot anything in red—even after a “soft Euro” (Datsyuk) took down Gary Roberts—but there’s really only one number that matters at this point.

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
