Abel to Yzerman

No Vacationing Allowed While In Florida

Two more points on the table tonight, Datsyuk returns, Jimmy in net and Babcock has mentioned he plans to use four forwards on the PP.

Everything is good and let's keep it that way.

Five out of six points the last three games so no need to let it all slip away now.

Olympics are on the horizon, but Sochi can wait.

Win tonight in Sunrise and we will worry about Tampa tomorrow.

It's a busy night for me, trade watch is on until 3:00pm ET tomorrow.

With that...

It's a live blog bitches.

It’s a pretty cool dive, actually underground Mich Ave dwntwn windy city.  You can certainly tell where they got their inspiration from.

Just went to CHI last year, hopefully going back soon though.  We’ll have to add it to the itinerary.

Not to horn in here, but, I’ve been to the Billy Goat Tavern.  No Coke. Pepsi. Cheeburgi, cheep. Some good burgers served there.

Kate, if you didn’t horn in, I’d be disappointed.  cool smile

Several thoughts after two:

1. If not for the wings fans, the beer vendors could have taken the night off.

2. Still looking for video evidence on the Zetterberg ” interference” penalty call.

3. I gotta get some of whatever Tim Thomas is taking ( if not for the lack of a cage I’d swear Hasek was back).

4. With Pav, Alfie, Z, Helm, and the Grand Rapids Boys all on the ice together….this ain’t such a bad team.

davison produced one freaky goaltender. absolutely stole one from datsyuk. jimmy made back to back huge saves just before nyquist scoring the 2d goal.

My guess is the joke is on the far side of that weapon.

Thanks. My Sister lives in the Chicago burbs. Naperville. We always go into the “City of the big shoulders” when I visit. I am always impressed with how clean the metro area seems to be. Went to a pub name of the Irish Oak down by Wrigley last visit. Also the other Billy Goat in the same area. Good times! wink

We spent most of our nights at a dive bar called Kingston Mines.  Open till 3am and all night live blues music, great food and beer.  It was my idea of heaven.

I was wondering the same thing. Was too hard to be a dump to the corner.

That word “interference,” refs. I don’t think it means what you think it means.

How many games against Detroit has Bjugstad been able to walk out of the corner with unimpeded to the net?  Seems like a coaching issue there.

Yeah Jovacop was the Panthers first draft pick I believe and is a Windsor, Canada boy. He had some really good years but surprised he’s still playing in the NHL.
Still got an old Louisville stick with Jovacop name on it.

Agree.  And Chi-town has some great ones.  Hate their sports teams (cept the Cubbies) but used to visit every summer with a gang of the grrrrls when I lived in MI.  Really good times.  Lucky not so many camera phones in those days.
