The Detroit Red Wings parlayed a strong last-week-of-November record into winning two of four December games and 1 of their past 3, including Saturday night's ugly, lethargic 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.
The Wings are making their first trip to Florida as members of the Atlantic Division, and they tangle with the Panthers tonight (7:30 PM, FSD/FS Florida/WXYT AM) and the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
Tonight, the Wings will have Pavel Datsyuk back in the lineup, Jimmy Howard in the net and a Stephen Weiss with something to prove against his previous employer--and Mike Babcock telling the press that Mr. Weiss simply needs to relax while also issuing something of an, "I don't like you" warning to HBO's 24/7 crew.
Yzerman's participating and probably playing in the Alumni Showdown, if only briefly, Pavel Datsyuk can catch fish pretty decently, the NHL will hold something of a pre-Winter Classic party outside Michigan Stadium on January 1st...
And it's a live blog, friends, enemies and members of the James Earl Jones For Crisp Lady club.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
