Skate Firmly On Throat.  Push Down.

Another Game 5 in Detroit.  Another blowout.  Another favorite completely flustered and, eventually, outclassed.  Welcome to your 2007 Red Wings.  Good news is obviously a victory as convincing as any we’ve seen in Detroit since a Game 7 in 2002.  Bad news is, equally obviously, an injury to Mathieu Schneider that no one knows the extent of.  Choose your source and you’ll hear anything from forearm to shoulder, broken to separated. More to follow.

For now?

Yes, for now..and Don Cherry can suck it.  He must be thrilled to see the Wing Swedes’ performance today.  Lilja drilling Grier to end the second, Zetterberg and Holmstrom battling after the horn.  Samuelsson on a one-timer, Holmstrom making a difference so profound that their power play actually looks invincible.  John Niyo blogged during the game that the Wings are 4-9 on the PP with him, 1-15 without.

And Zetterberg having his best game of the playoffs.  3 points…yes.  But a physical presence that has to raise eyebrows on the set of HNIC.


CO2 bottle

errrr…SCUBA tank (thanks Shep) is lodged in its mouth and Roy Scheider is taking aim.  Time to blow the hell out of the shark once and for all.

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.
