Tonight would be a nice time to defeat a team from Columbus and that's all I'm gonna say about that.

The Diggers are saying our power play isn't what it was at the beginning of the year when it was so prolific during a 7-game winless streak.

Not enough pure scorers. Too stagnant.

Flip Zabina has 7 goals in Grand Rapids. He's also 18, the youngest player on that team by 18 months.

He's also -4. Harry Potter fans will tell you that stat doesn't mean much anymore.

He still has the worst plus/minus on the team and that's why he's not in Detroit, on the power play. That, grudgingly, makes sense.

Good teams lose tough games, then a good effort in a shootout loss (and is it just me or are shootouts suddenly boring, after watching awesome 3 on 3 hockey for five minutes, everything slows down to a crawl as the skills competition decides games), is not wasted. It's a good point.

It's a good point if you build on it against a team from a shithole city like Columbus (yes, it's truly a shithole, populated by shitheads). That shootout loss is a good point if you're a decent team and you get two points the next game.

That extra point would be nice tonight, against that team, from that city. It would just be nice.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

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.
