Abel to Yzerman

All Signs Point To Disaster

This is the most redolent example of a trap game I've ever seen.

Coming off an emotional two game sweep of this once invincible and once Mighty Ducks, in front of 7 thousand of their own fans and 11 thousand of ours. 

Phoenix hasn't won in five games.  Shane Doan has been playing for free the entire year, waiting for a Saudi pharmacist to buy the team. HockeyinHD says I shouldn't have said that about the Saudi pharmacist, that this is no place for hijinks like that.

This is a Live Blog, bitches.  And somewhere Murph is getting completely and utterly wasted, whore-style.

three road wins in a row and a power play that is scoring goals, you all better be jerking it into a sock tonight.

Damn man, what are you? Like a mind-reader or something?

Don’t tell him Truman beat Dewey.

Until Brad Van Pelt, Dewey was the most famous person from my home town Owosso.

Dewey Cheatem and Howe

Looking at Douglas Murray on NHL Network. He fat.

Fat and slow. You left out slow.

Wasn’t it Cal-Gary?

Could be, it was Alberta I’m pretty sure.

I can’t name a Wings player who isn’t named Franzen that didn’t play his ass off tonight.

but these three road wins, the #1 and #2 stars are…

yes that’s Jimmah and Wifah.

and #2…

I would have preferred Anaheim to beat SJ, the team that’s below us in the standings, barely.

I want to create some separation.

From Facebook:

Tonight’s Stars of the Game Powered by Ram Trucks are…
1. P. Datsyuk (1 Goal)
2. J. LaBarbera 32 Saves)
3. H. Zetterberg (1 Assist)

Ever had a tense, playoff-atmosphere kind of a game actually sober you up after five or six lovely bottles of Guinness?

I’m the only one?  Oy…

Had a great time at the pub watching tonight’s game with fellow Yotes fans.  At least, this bunch had a better attitude about their team’s predicament than the relentlessly stupid DuhUcks fans.

Keep rolling, Wings,.

HOLY CRAP what a night. While walking up the steps after the game and I heard LaBarbera announced as the #2 star I literally yelled “you allow three fuching goals and you’re still the second star???” Awful looks from Phoenix fans, high fives from Wings fans. What a great night.

As I predicted, I fell asleep on the couch before the game started, and woke up in time to see the third period.

Then I went and found a sock and some lotion.

Wow!  The Wings did it again!  Wow!

And Pav was the first star.  I think he’s my new favorite Red Wing.  I just love the guy.

even after only a few hours sleep I feel great this morning.

there’s just something different about waking up the morning after a great road win like last night.

I was aboot to say something similar, well about half an hour ago, but didn’t muster the concentration to do it.

Yeah, considering Gustavsson stopped the penalty shot , that #2 is curious.

Yeah.  The LOSING goalie gets a star and the winning goalie doesn’t? I thought that was ridiculous.  Should have been Gus.

P.S.  Bill, I like that chart of yours.  It really tells the story.
