The Wings Have Turned The Minutes To Hours

And I have no idea where the love of god has gone.  No, that's not pessimism talking. That's not me saying that adorable cherub, that drooling, babbling bundle of baby fat and joy, our precious 8lb baby Jesus has forsaken us and punished us for our many, many sins.  Baby Jesus has not decreed the end of our (shortened) season.

I'm talking about Stress.  I'm talking about disgusting, horrific Stress.  It's going to overtime tonite.  Because it must.

Double overtime, because if this season is going to end tonite it's going to end in the most painful way possible.

I'll say it again, how awesome would it be if that little tazmanian bastard skated out for the opening faceoff?  Do you know what Darren Helm would add to this equation? I don't. Because I can't remember the last time he played.

The musty old hall will be rocking.  Hopefully, if providence allows, we'll hear the echoes of  "You..Got...Kronwalled". My god that is a beautiful invention.

Something else, and I have to tell you this because I've sucked as a blogger for the entire year.  I've left the carrier Navy and moved on to the shooters, the small boys, the little ships who blast away.  Two weeks ago I took over as Command Master Chief of a Destroyer here in San Diego and the pace is...unbelievable.  That's why I've been largely absent except for the live blogs.  I don't see the work slowing down but I will maintain the blog the best I can. 

It's a Live Blog bitches.  One shift, one beer at a time.

Kronwall, Abby…whoever. I just want Perry spending the last 90 seconds of the game questioning his own manhood.

My physiotherapist has a friend who hit the Rum Trifecta:  He married a gorgeous girl, she is part of the Mount Gay rum family, and lives in Barbados.

The difference between the Wings and DuhUcks PP is startling.  The DuhUcks put three men down low on the goal line and not more than 3-4 feet away from the crease.  The Wings?  Just one.

Not a bad PP at all.  Lots of shots by the second unit.

Pav/Hank/Abby could learn from the kid line.  They are always lurking in front of the net, ready to pounce on rebounds.

Once Gustav is playing on a nightly basis in the NHL and refs are watching him every night, he will literally draw a penalty from the opposing defense every shift…

He is incredibly quick.  If he can combine some Pavel-like stick skills with it he’ll be awesome.

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.
