LB: We Got Game

The Season of Jobu is wrapping up.  I’m no pharmacist, but I am told that today’s game has playoff implications. 

Thanks to RWBill’s Peloton of Suck graph denoting the Clusterfaux to the Playoffs, the 19 have had cool visuals like a Fox-track puck creating lines in space.  What the POS graph has shown is that when the season is on the line, the Wings responded and won.  And won.  And won some more.

Today, to close out the season, the 19 are asking for another WIN.

Stop.  What’s that sound?  Everybody knows what’s about to go down.

It’s a Live Blog to wrap up the season with the Wings facing Junior one more time.  Hold on to your mouthguards, it may get ugly.

While Junior has spent the better part of half a decade emulating the greatest sports organ-I-zation in the world, the Red Wings, today they will be reminded that they are cheap copies of the Dynasty. 

Hopefully in a few weeks, the Wings will put the final nails in the coffin to finish off Junior in the postseason for the second consecutive year.  I’m not sure who is starting in net today, the A2Y interns are still drunk from Friday night’s Hit Me Mick festivities and haven’t told me.  What I do know is that Chicago will be coming to play.  The Western Conference overall #1 spot hangs in the balance.

For the Wings, little more than travel details will be decided today.  For the first time in a long, long time the Wings will not be opening the playoffs at home.  I’m not worried.  The rest of the Western Conference should be worried.  Every division leader, along with Phoenix, will be watching the scoreboard to see who draws the short stick and has to face the red-hot Wings.

There is a reason I’d like to play each of the top four teams.  Which is reason enough to sit back, grab a drink, and see where the chips fall.

The Red Wings are Public Enemy #1.  And everyone is scared to come face to face with them.

Let’s Go Red Wings!!!!!  It is very important to WIN your last game of the season.  Today and for many Tuesdays to come.

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
