added 12:14pm, Khan...

Fabbri, who's played some center the past couple seasons, went 8-3 on face-offs last night. Bertuzzi's four goals came on a total of four shots. Hronek's 25:09 in ice time was two minutes more than anyone else's.

Dylan Larkin took a slow, brief twirl on the ice before practice and left. He was shaken up from cross check into boards from Matthieu Joseph last night and has a hearing with NHL today for his retaliatory punch to the face.

Videos- Talk After An OT Loss To The Tampa Bay Lightning

Below find Mickey Redmond post game, the game highlights and Tyler Berttuzzi/Jeff Blashill after the game.

added 8:32am, Much longer version of Blashill and Bertuzzi added below.

from Ethan Sears of DetroitRedWings.com,

"We played well enough to win the hockey game," Blashill said. "We take a penalty (at) 5-on-6 and we gave up a 5-on-6 goal. So we gotta do better than that for sure."

In other recent seasons, the highlight of the night for Detroit against the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions might have been the pregame ceremony, in which Larkin was honored as captain at center ice, standing with a row of past Red Wings captains.

Even with the loss, you couldn't say that about this game.

Larkin scored in the first, putting in a loose puck after Robby Fabbri created a breakaway against the run of play, and Bertuzzi scored his first goal 18 seconds into the second period - splitting two defenders and finishing past Vasilevskiy. Bertuzzi's second came just after a power play expired at 7:52, cleaning up a loose puck after Adam Erne's shot was saved by Vasilevskiy.

That set the stage for a hectic final 10 minutes of the second period, featuring three goals and seven penalties, sending the game into the third with Detroit hanging onto a 4-3 lead.

In the end, neither that nor the ensuing 6-3 lead would be enough.

"I thought we were in a good spot," Blashill said. "I was real confident that we were gonna find a way to win that hockey game. So it's a gut punch when you don't."

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to all! I hope all is well, and, the 19 have had a peaceful Summer. It's been far to long since we've had much of anything to be excited about, but, that's about to change. The new season is finally upon us with actual youngsters aboard. Whooda thought? Eh?

We know not to expect miracles. We know to expect rookie mistakes, which will be forgiven, but, the addition of Seider, Suter, Raymond and a few other new faces have made this season something to look forward to.

One of the many objectives for the "Yzerplan" is to bring this team to some form of respectability this season while providing an entertaining game to watch. Here's to the 2021-2022 Detroit Red Wings!

Hope for the best.....

Have A Great Season

Putting this up before Kate's live blog goes up to just say enjoy this season of the winged wheel.

I am hoping everyone is healthy and their life has not been one of pain and suffering the last year and a half.

I know some members have had issues outside of the Covid, a few have experienced first hand the force of mother nature and others are struggling to find suitable work.

One thing about KK/A2Y is we are a strong community.  Many of use have had the opportunity to meet each other over the years at various events and communicate in different ways.

We may be a little more experienced in life lessons but that is a good thing.  We think before we speak or write most of the time and that's a good thing.

My goal this season is to make sure everyone stays on topic in the comment section.  I am tired of the daily bombardment of politics, health issues and the economy I read or hear everyday at various outlets and social networks.

KK and A2Y should and will become more of a safe space for you know, to talk hockey with other hockey fans.  There are numerous options for you to talk about other topics not related to our game, but it is not here.

My health (type ll diabetic) has actually improved, new meds seemed to have done the trick and I am looking forward to working long hours again this year.

Enjoy the season, any issues or comments, you know how to reach me.

Stay safe, stay healthy and LGRW!

Om a side note, there is a quick KK Donation Drive going on for those who may have missed it late in July.

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.
