I’m not sure if this compares to watching an extreme closeup of Tommy Hammonds on NBC, but here are the images from today at the Joe.
Hammonds, on NBC’s Derby Coverage, literally frightens me. I’m not real sure who he’s affiliated with, if you catch my drift.
Good stuff from Dave at Gorilla Crouch.
The big concern heading into this series from Detroit’s perspective was Specialty Teams. After five games the Specialty Teams have unquestionably been a positive in the Red Wings’ favor. They have scored 5 power play goals (22.7%), 1 short handed goal, and have held the Sharks to 2 power play goals in 23 power play opportunities for an 8.7% success rate. The Wings have completely shut down the San Jose power play over the past 2 games and have allowed 1 power play goal since Game 2 for a 95.5% kill ratio over that time span. That is simply outstanding.

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.
