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.

A full period of focus would help.

Fluke deflection over the shoulder.  Maybe we’ll get a break in the third.

Damnit smith, if you wouldnt go swatting with your stick at a puck 5 feet over your head, those plays would be easy icings.

So I guess they’ve swallowed the whistle for the third.  I’m fine with it if it stays that way.

Luckily those of us who properly deposited our coal before the period started should have a nice shiny diamond soon.

Guaranteed that would be a penalty shot, because it wasn’t the wings.

This team not only owns us, they have papers in the safe to prove it.

even worse than giving up the go-ahead goal—absolutely no pushback in the follow up shifts

Embarrassing 3rd period, and even more embarrassing response to TB taking the lead.
