Nitty Gritty

Coming off another win, the Wings face off early today against a Flyers team that we have not won against, in their building, since the 1997 SCF.

So there's that. Odds are not really in favor of the Wings today, but there is one thing that I am personally looking forward to, besides hopefully breaking the losing in Philly streak. Lots of camera time focused on Gritty.

Say what you will, but for reasons I cannot explain, I like that mascot. Bizarre, scary to some.

Gritty. The Beast of the East.

With that in mind, the Wings need to show some grit of their own, and break this streak.

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.
