Khan(!) Less Optimistic About Homer Playing Game 1

Woops. Dissent amongst the diggers again.  Stoney and Wojo spoke with Mike Babcock earlier today and appeared satisfied that our boy Homer would be ready to go for Game 1.  Khan(!)?  Maybe not.

The Wings are listed Holmstrom as day-to-day, but his left eye was swollen shut Monday, so it’s hard to imagine he’d be ready to start the second round series, which will begin on Thursday for the Wings.

Holmstrom will see an eye specialist in Detroit on Tuesday. He saw an eye doctor in Calgary Monday morning and Holland said the team was encouraged that the doctor allowed Holmstrom to fly home with the club.

“He was real bad when he left the rink (Sunday night), but this morning he made significant improvement,’’ Holland said. “We’ll see over the next 48 to 72 hours how it’ll heal.’’

I’m not worrying about that tonite.  Nope. All I’m concerned with is Dallas/Vancouver.  No pressure.  No stress. Just a Game 7 to enjoy (and really hope, sorry A, that Dallas wins).

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.
