Line ‘em Up

Well, if you spent the day trying to guess the Wings’ lines minus Johan Franzen…keep trying. It took Babcock all of seven minutes to run Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Holmstrom out together and there they stayed the rest of the first. 

Most impressive unit so far has been a surprise mixture of Draper, Cleary and Drake.  Drew two penalties their first two shifts and probably the most effective line of the first period. 

2033 EST:  Holmstrom’s 3rd PP goal in three games.  Souray’s record (19 PP set last year) could be history by 1 January.

2109 EST: Perhaps the worst ice ever seen at JLA.  I’ve never seen so many players not named Parker trip over the puck in such a short span of time. 

2134 EST: Interference call on Homer was pathetic.  And while I’m violently opposed to Uncle Mike putting our three best offensive players on one line, they sure do look good.  No way it lasts. 

2143 EST: And Kronwall goes into the endboards.  Jesus.

2144 EST: All is well. He just drilled Hemsky at the blue line.

2200 EST: Zetterberg 7 points in 3 games.  Funniest thing of the young season:  Empty net, Draper, Datsyuk and Chelios on a rush. Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond at exactly the same time: “Give it to Chelios!”  And Draper scores.

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.
