Abel to Yzerman


Updated 0515 EST:  Amazing insight from Marty Turco. 
“I’d like to see that call made a little more often.”

Updated 0250 EST:  Video of the call added below.  What isn’t added are the Wing highlights from the third period, because there aren’t any.  O’Halloran may have made another horrible Holmstrom call but Detroit’s poor play in the first and third period is what led to their fourth loss in a row.
Wings just had another goal called back, just before the end of the second period against Dallas.  If it had counted, a Lidstrom slapshot…of course, it would have closed the gap to 4-3.

But not in Gary’s world. Not in the league where Tomas Holmstrom is called for goalie interference on…this.



Let’s see.  Turco’s moving out of the crease toward Homer.  Holmstrom’s feet are outside the crease.  He’s being pushed backward toward Turco.




Oh yes.  Obvious goalie interference.


That was a bad, bad call on the Nicklas Lidstrom goal by referee Dan O’Halloran. Not only had Tomas Holmstrom been tripped by Turco, he was then pushed back into the goalie by defenseman Trevor Daley. And it looked as though this all happened after the puck went past. Turco’s flop at the end sealed it for me that it should have been a goal.

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.
