Bertuzzi A Black Ace?

Updated 1407 ESTMacLeod reports that Todd Stillwuzzi (thanks O-Joe) is out for Game 2, despite practicing for the second straight day.

Iwo’s alliterative analysis: Had the Wings not done what they did the other day, denying the diggers the Detroit death watch they desperately desired, this decision would most definitely have been different.

Bruce MacLeod reports today that Bertuzzi practiced today, but not on a line that would dress tomorrow.

Todd Bertuzzi is on the ice for Saturday’s full practice. He’s skating with Josh Langfeld and Tomas Kopecky. Mikael Samuelsson and Kyle Calder are skating on Robert Lang’s line. Although Bertuzzi might play in Sunday’s Game 2, the Red Wings are preparing for him not to dress.

Do the Wings even call their reserves “Black Aces” anymore? Not sure.  I’ll drink on it and get back to you.

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
