Abel to Yzerman

Chances of Success? Exactly Zero. Live Blog That And Stick It In Your Pipe.

The Wings have lost horrendously to the two worst teams in hockey.  Consecutive waterboardings. Disgusting.

So, tonite, against the team I believe to be the best in the Western Conference?

Tick Tock and Uncle Mike are starting a rookie because our other rookie (McCollum..is he even technically a rookie?) literally "terrifies" the organ-I-zation, and James Tiberius Howard is exhausted.

Our blue line is decimated and our third line can't score.  The fourth line has been instructed to let themselves get hit like Rudy Frigging Stein. Do not shoot. Do not swing. Do not make any offensive gestures. Engelbert's on deck and he's been killing the ball lately.

The Wings beat the Blues last time out after David Backes was tossed due to a clean check to a Detroit tummy.  He's going to be angry. The whole team is going to be absolutely frantic.  The crowd, amped up on Pall Malls and Ten High whiskey, will be quiet only long enough to swap tongues with whatever relative is on their immediate left. 

The opponent. The atmosphere. The Wings, themselves. 

All signs point to the worst regular season defeat in Detroit Hockey History. 

Two goals for Datsyuk. One for Wally and one for Charlie by God Buckets.

Wings win 4-2.

czech language is pretty similar to slovenian, so I can translate ‘‘Mrazek’’ into english :
mraz means cold, and Mrazek can mean ’ a litlle cold one’
somethin like that

I swear Abdelkader is going to start getting some goals.  For Team USA he was one of their best players and always in front of the net like that last play.

I don’t know what to think of this feeling of scoring first, it’s so… unusual.

Are “Mrasek” and “Mursak” just different English spellings of the same name or are they actually different Czech names?
