Abel to Yzerman

The Postman Always Rings Twice

I don't know about you, but I'd rather not hear the doorbell at all tonight.

No mailing it in tonight. No phoning it in. No half-assing it. Every point matters. Two points tonight, boys. Your two points. Our two points. 

After tonight, most of you can take it easy for a few weeks... but right now, there's a hockey game to play.

The Stress Train is leaving the station; The Hasek will be fully restocked with various meats, cheeses, liquors, and pets for the coming journey, so all aboard and join us for a Live Blog, Bitches.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Missed the last game traveling. I understand that some of the 19 became diamond cutters that evening.

6-2 our way works for me tonight, if I have a say in it.

I am greedy tonight, 4 games ago I said five games before Olympic break 7 of 10 pts. needed.

Well we have the 7, wouldn’t 9 sound even better?

Let’s hit this break with one more win.

I love this place.

Evening everyone, I actually get to watch a game live for the first time in what seems like forever.  And then I have to wait 3 weeks to watch the wings again.  I really don’t care about the Olympics, in fact I actively dislike them, so it looks like this is the last hockey for me until the 26th.

I won’t be very active, but I’ll be listening to the game. Since it’s not on GCL. Since the NHL network are a bunch of arses.

I just assume O’Halloran was laughing at Z telling him about all the ways he’s going to be full of suckage tonight.

Few whistles, free flowing hockey. Enjoy it while it lasts, which I am thinking won’t be long.

Oh good, idiot announcers just look at penalty minutes to call the Wings one of least penalized ignoring that Detroit is 4th in times short handed.  Clowns

Wings gettin an awful lot of pressure down low. I like it. Keep it up and TB will make a mistake eventually.

Puck never settled for Jurco, but that’s too much for these awful announcers to notice

Jurco has to go forehand on that.  Bishop covers way to much of the bottom of the net to sqeeze that through.  Hes gigantic
