"We know we play Nashville, don't get me wrong," Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "But I don't think we concern ourselves with the standings. We concern ourselves with our team. Not their team."You don't concern yourselves with the standings? Well, you'd damn well better buddy. Because that 4 spot looks bad. The 5 spot looks worse. The only spot we want is the 2 or the 1. So in rides Bubba high atop his donkey, swigging his shine, taunting you. He's looking right at you in that baby-poop colored sombrero. Bubba says the cheese is his, that he's waited long enough. Bubba says he not be big on the whole Phonics thing, but he's better than you. And Vokoun just irritates me. Pauk Kuharsky/Daily Tennessean
"They are right behind us, obviously a good offensive team and now good defensively too, so it's going to be a good test for us," Vokoun said. " … It's strange, you would think by now we would have played them more times. It's going to be a battle to the end I think."Yeah. I think. Let me reiterate (that means repeat, Bubba) something: we can't have the 4. We can't have the 5. The 4 or the 5 means San Jose and San Jose means despair. The 2? Today the 2 means AlanaH's Canucks and the very idea of that makes me giddy (happy, Bubba). So, I've jettisoned the idea of the "hate the BJ" campaign. It was fun. It may return as early as this weekend. But today, at the beginning of the six-gamer that will decide the Central and absolutely determine our playoff fate? Gotta hate Bubba.

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.
