After Four Games

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The important thing to remember is it’s only been four games.

Four games to begin this weird, unique, short season of an NHL schedule, and all the Red Wings did was split them.

But Tuesday’s 3-2 overtime victory over Columbus was another reminder that this does feel different from last season’s misery.

The Red Wings appear to be much more competitive.

“We are feeling good,” said forward Tyler Bertuzzi, who scored Tuesday’s winner, essentially banking in Dylan Larkin’s pass off a 2-on-1 rush. “We have a really good team this year and if we can play like that and keep doing the right things we’ll get rewarded with these one-goal wins.”

At least in the first 240 minutes and 15 seconds of hockey this season, general manager Steve Yzerman’s free-agent and trade acquisitions have been impactful on and off the ice.

They’ve added an air of professionalism, and stability, that was much needed.

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.
