Preview- Wings/Islanders

from Brian Compton of NHL.com,

Players to watch

Red Wings center Dylan Larkin has six points (two goals, four assists) in a six-game point streak. His next goal will be his 100th in the NHL.

Islanders forward Jordan Eberle has three points (two goals, one assist) in his past three games and is two points shy of 500 in the NHL.

They said it

"We can't spend one minute thinking about it. We've got to try to win a hockey game with the guys we have available to us. We've got a good enough group available to us to go win a game, so let's go do that." -- Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill on playing with injuries

"Let's not be fooled; they have some pretty good players over there. I know their record doesn't indicate that, but they can score goals and we need to be ready for them. Most importantly, we've just got to play our game and get back to what we do best." -- Islanders forward Matt Martin

Yes, but they have this ingratiating habit of relaxing on a lead.

Howard said he was think too much, Yikes Get healthy Bernier !!!

Howard is done but maybe there is some puck luck.

How in the World did we end up with these 2 goalies being the best?

The last outing by Detroit was an embarrassment.
How much embarrassment will it take for Yzerman to see the light?

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
