Abel to Yzerman

All of our employers can thank one Gary Leonore Bettman for our lack of productivity tomorrow morning…again. Those of you staying up to watch this game have serious issues. You, most likely, have to be up for work in roughly 7 hours. Look at yourselves. Where are your priorities?
Exactly. Crack ‘em if you got ‘em. Ducky broadcast team just announced Todd Marchant’s out too. They also said the primary goal is to shut down the ______ line. Shocking.
2238: Wondrous dive by Perry. Hopefully Drake gets a rematch tonite. Then Mowers with a decidedly Anaheim-like boarding call. Nice to see it took you all of a month to pick up some quality characteristics. Goal Duckies. Another penalty to the Wings, then another. Grampa Pinhead will be fun to read tomorrow.
2242: Duckie broadcast guys (not bad), just announced Evenwuzzier is on IR for a week. Carlysle said today that Boogard’s hit wasn’t dirty but that “he seemed to be out of position”. Oh. Because Sasquatch and Niedermayer were both in position when they assaulted Homer last year.
2301: Poultry TV just asked Sasquatch to give two consecutive complete sentences about his Stanley Cup memories. Naturally, because that stupid MF’er knew I was watching, he said…“Game 5 against Detroit.” So, because I deserve it for staying up this late to watch a regular season game in October, they showed a couple clips that really made the children sing. The fluttering puck from hell, the Lilja situation, the Selanne issue. Nice
2308: A couple mild observations to start the second. Lilja just got knocked on his ass by an oompa-loompa. In open ice, in his own end. Then a giveaway from LILJA, delayed penalty on LILJA, then a poultry goal. Jesus Mike. Meech. Soon
2318: Schneider’s a “special guest” with the Disney announcers. Everybody’s happy. BFF’s. Oh hey, another Wing penalty. 6 through 1 1/2 periods. Thanks Gary. Ass.
2322: Schneider just said, “Hasek has absolutely no idea what he’s going to do with the puck when he plays it.” That’s ironic because I was just about to post a little ditty I think you’ll all remember and enjoy with me. Anyone sense this is going to be relevant tonite?
2326: Well look at Matt Ellis why don’t you? Another goal for Zetterberg. By the end of tonite, he’ll be averaging two points/game.
2335: Never has such a big puss taken such a big dive in such a blue crease. Sasquatch. Hate him.
2344: Zetterberg took that penalty and knew he was headed off ten seconds before the whistle. Niedermayer high-sticked him off the faceoff then Hank chased him all the way down the ice and planted an elbow in his head. Hell yes. Give him the “C”. Well, give it to him next year, or in a few. I mean…eventually.
0000: Does it make me a bad person to be rooting against the Colorado Rockies simply because I assume there are Dive fans at that game tonite and I want them to feel pain?
0007: Drake, Maltby, Draper and Cleary have all registered hits the first three minutes of the third. Woops. Been four minutes without a Wing penalty. Can’t have that. Off goes Maltby.
0018: Here’s Gary Leonore’s legacy. Of all the penalties the Wings have taken tonite, none were more obvious than the non-call on Filppula. But they don’t call it because the refs know how lopsided it’s become. Then Perry, that punk ass, is whistled for nothing and off he goes. The ineptitude goes much deeper than the refs. It’s institutional and there’s a shorthanded goal for Anaheim. Skippy. 17 power plays tonite. 17. That’s Gary’s NHL.
0030: Long west-coast flight. Back-to-back games. Long, penalty-filled, violent matchup tonite. Chris Chelios looks tired.
0036: Not real fond of Corey Perry, in case I hadn’t point that out before.
0043: Bryzgalov was a stud. Entertaining game. 19 minors. C’mon. The two best teams in the league and 19 minors?
