Wasted Opportunity

And not just one of them.  Several.  Start with the absence of Sasquatch and a depleted blue line that couldn’t even pretend to put up any form of resistance from ten minutes onward in the third.

Then move to two 5-3’s that netted nothing.

And continue that thought when you consider what a 3-1 lead would have meant to the Wings, with 11 straight potential series clinching victories to their credit.

And we move to another pivotal Game 5 in Hockeytown.  Good news?  Yep.

Detroit has outscored their last two opponents (both “favorites”) 9-2 in Game 5’s.

About Abel to Yzerman

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. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
