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.

Hey WestWing, how much snow did you get up your way and did it paralyze the city?

Ahoy, bitches!

Entertaining first period.  We had a lot of chances but gave up a few too many too.  Jesus Lashoff with a spectacular empty lunge that missed.

Max Paccioretti left his game in the first period after a knee collision. That is not good for team USA.

The Abdelkader line looks pretty darn good again tonight. Everything from A-Z.

This is so confusing. Carolina versus Montreal, who the hell do I pull for? I want both of them to lose. The best I can hope for is for one of the team to win in regulation.

I think we ended up with 5 or 6 inches of snow on Thursday and Friday, and yeah it pretty much shut everything down.  My commute on both days was really easy though, mostly because there was hardly anybody else on the roads.

Talking to a friend today who’s a Blackhawk fan about last night’s Hawks and Coyotes game and he asked if I ever noticed how much Mike Smith flops around in the net with no contact.  Got a good laugh.

wow, I didn’t see an arm go up for a penalty there.  Guess we just penalize the “injury”—I’m telling you this shit is becoming more and more like soccer all the time.

I have no idea, I probably just read some armchair GM’s hatin’ on him a few days back because he isn’t Stevie on a Stick.
