I Guess What We’re Talking About Is A Live Blog

I left it up to you, the A2Y readers, to decide where we should converse during the remaining regular season games, then the 22 playoff games to follow (4-1, 4-2, 4-2, 4-1). 

Oh no he dint. Oh…yes I did.  Yes I frigging did. I just predicted the outcome of all four Wing series’.  Just for fun, let’s predict how the Blues will do.  Ready?

Woops. Sorry about that.  Live blog here.

I gave you guys a free pass when we brought the LB back on Tuesday.  Few comments, just me entertaining myself (shut up).  Tonite’s a different story. I demand witty interaction.  And not the loads of juvenile stuff either.

“Load”....YES.  God, that’s funny.

1925:  Going with the SopCast tonite because even though I paid the 130 bucks for NHL TV, it’s blacked out because it’s on the NHL Network; which happens to be nothing but a cruel figment of my imagination, since I’ve never seen it.  Thanks Gary.  Ass.  Just in case the SopCast fails, I’ve got Ken and Paul cued up on the radio side.

1939:  Tantrum on the way. SopCast says my channel is offline.  Radio only for now.

1951:  I could recap the absolute hatred I have for the idiots who market our league and the little man who runs this farce, but it would be redundant.  And we all know redundancy has no place here. It really has no place here.

2000:  Thanks to Solo16 and all others.  SopCast is working.  Should it be this hard to watch a hockey game? Really?

2004:  Whew. Good thing I got it going just in time to see the BBs score. 

2006: Bubba and the BJs scoreless in the second.  Minnesota and Vancouver about to start.  If anyone needs a reminder, Bubba will take over the 8 spot with a win and a Canuck loss.  Also, if you need another reminder, Dan Ellis is the starting goalie for Nashville. Luongo for Vancouver. I have my opinions about who we’d like to see on 12 April.

2013:  Just saw McCarty’s first shift. Rephrase: that was the first shift of his I saw. He took a run at somebody.  Made me feel warm. 

2015: Bubba’s up 2-0.  Hell yes.

2037: McCarty: 2:37 TOI, 5 shifts, O hits, etc. for the first period.

2039: Datsyuk and Zetterberg’s first shift of the second and Rafalski looks like another forward out there.  Unfortunately, Franzen looks like another Homer.  Goalie interference call and the wheels on the bus go round and round. Ridiculous call.

2046: Holy Cow.  4 minute lag time on SopCast.  I can do a lot in four minutes.  Most of it twice in that span.  I’m gonna stop reading comments. I knew Rafalski scored two beers before I saw it.

2048: Wife just agreed with the twice in four minutes comment. That’s nice.  Nothing like a little support on the home front.

2058: Good news. Baroque just pointed out that Bob Luongo is down 2-0 in the first.  Warm. Fuzzy. Secure. That’s how I feel about that.

2122: 2-1 BB’s after two.  Apparently Franzen took a puck somewhere below the chest.  Discussion followed. Gabe predicted he’d lose his spleen. Baroque eloquently stated she was under the impression the puck hit him squarely in the nuts (my words). Gabe reluctantly admitted he has no idea where the spleen is located.  I’ve got the St. Louis feed going so have no idea. Anyone?

2128: McCarty: 4:48, 9 shifts, 1 shot, 1 hit after two.

2140: 8 spot is completely up for grabs. Bubba’s killing Columbus. Minnesota’s killing Vancouver.  The Dive took a 2-0 lead over Edmonton only to choke it away and they’re tied.

2151: Legace is clearly the difference tonite, as he’s been on a few occasions versus the Wings.  If he plays this well in the playoffs, St. Louis will be awfully tough to beat.  Oh…woops. Sorry.

2154: Franzen’s twelfth in twelve games, but credit for Detroit’s second goal goes to Rafalski for keeping that puck in. If you watch one replay tomorrow try to find that one. Amazing play.

2159: Unbelievable pass from Zetterberg and the continuation of a frigging carnival of a month for Franzen.  Amazing.

2210: Chris Osgood got what he deserved on a mediocre night.  Great play by Kariya to set up Boyes, who deserves plenty of credit for scoring 40 goals playing for such an absolute garbage team.

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
