Abel to Yzerman

Stuffed

Let's just get this out in the open. I don't discuss horrible losses. I don't think about them, read about them, certainly don't blog about them or acknowledge them in any way.  

So don't expect a rehash of that. Ever. 

Hell, I'd read a St. James annual hard hitter on "Thanksgiving traditions" before I scan a single sentence about the Wings' last game. 

Edmonton's in town, 8 weeks after the Canadie(a)n experts fashtioned them a sexy pick.

Not anymore, boy. Nope. 

The Edmonton Oilers were not remotely competitive in an 8-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues Tuesday, and the saddest part? They quit.

That’s right.

Quit.

That's sobbing Canandia(e)n apologist, Mark Spector, brought to you by the emperor this morning. 

​Not only did he accuse the Oil of quitting against the dainty Blues, he went all hard return on their asses. Stand alone.

​"Quit". 

​Blah. What hockey team quits? Really. What writer can actually tell if a team "quits"? None. Dumbass. It's a young team figuring out how to play hockey in November. Dumbass.

​So, they'll come out all flying and full of vinegar. 

​If the Wings win tonite, Kenny says they'll make the playoffs. Because Tick Tock always says that teams with a ticket on the all-important "American Thanksgiving" have a great shot of getting in, based on Kenny's metrics and addling powers of deduction.  

​It's a Live Blog, bitches. A live blog about 17 hours before the Lions "biggest game of the year."  Shitttttttt.

​LGRW and FKHOTAT (I'll help you...."on the American Thanksgiving").

The last opponent we faced that got spanked on the first ngiht of their back-to-back, we gave the game away in the third, and blew it in OT. Don’t make the same mistake, boys! Win it!

LGRW!

It’s a great pre-Thanksgiving night for a hockey game.  L.G.R.W.

In these times please use tomorrow to remember all that we should be thankful for… I know I will.

they’re 4 for 4 in getting points in the last 4, 4 of the ‘stretch of 15’
where I said they MUST get points in 10 of 15 ... 2-0-2

well now it’s 6 in the next 11

a W is preferred, boyz ... and 60 minutes
(not like the last game that we’re not talking aboot)

I was thinking more along the lines of the Wings needing 20 of the possible 30 points in that 15 game stretch.  They’re better than that pace right now.  Hopefully they learned their lesson after last game and they can push it to 8 of 10 possible points tonight.

Another day another chance for the Wings to blow a game in the last six minutes.

I have chef duty, cook the whole meal, crescent rolls, apple pie, and pumpkin pie baked today. The bird, stuffing, mashed spuds, sweet tatters, gravy, and baked cranberries are on the list for tomorrow.

The wife will open the jars of olives (green and black).

Gonna stuff myself so I will not have to eat the rest of the week.

A win tonight will go a long way to being a happy dead bird day.

LGRW

Now if I can get through the game with out drinking too much…

Should I assume a bad line change led to that good chance for Edmonton?

Well that is just grand. Everyone following the puck and not the players again on defense… if you want to call it that.
