Ty Conklin’s Your Starter

There’s a large contingent of the 19 heading to JLA tomorrow night to see the Wings take on Sasquatch and the Poultry.  This whole deal has been honcho’d by MOWingsFan19 and he’s been beating the drum for about a month now.  I don’t know how many will be going, or who…mainly because I won’t be one of them so I’d rather just avoid thinking about it.

But I’ll tell them this.  It’s gonna be a conk fest. 


Wings goaltender Ty Conklin will try to stretch his home winning streak to 11 games Friday when he starts against Anaheim, which is in a tough battle to make the playoffs.

Somebody pointed this out yesterday and it’s brilliant:  Chris Osgood has exactly one more game of less than 3 goals allowed than Ty Conklin does shutouts.  Think about that.  Have a ballcap Chris. Keep it on for a while.  Like ‘til mid June or so.

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
