GDT - W.C. Finals, Game 5: Red Wings (3-1) host Blackhawks (1-3) (7:30)

It is by necessity that the GDT is quick and dirty today, I have to work out of town.  Hopefully the Wings will make quick and dirty work of the ‘Hawks tonight as well.  If my memory serves me right, the Wings haven’t done too well the last two opportunities they have had the chance to close out a series in 5 games.

Uncle Mike isn’t even thinking about “resting” Lidstrom or Datsyuk:  ” “If they’re ready, they’re playing,”  Datsyuk did skate yesterday, says Khan(!) Q-stache says ‘Bulin and Havlat are day to day.

This could be the last time for the ‘Hawks tonight.  Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Jeff Sagarin NHL Ratings, from USAToday.com:

To make predictions for upcoming games, simply compare the RATINGS of
the teams in question and allow an ADDITIONAL .25 goals for the home
team.  Thus, for example, a HOME team with a rating of 4.43 would be
favored by .57 goals over a VISITING team having a rating of 4.11.
Or a VISITING team with a rating of 4.56 would be favored by .42 goals
over a HOME team having a rating of 3.89

NOTE: Use whatever home advantage is listed in the output below.
In the example just above, a home edge of .25 was shown for
illustrative purposes. The home edge will vary during the season.

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
