The Detroit Red Wings experienced a disastrous period in each of their previous three games that contributed to their demise.

On Tuesday, they played one of their better periods this season, against perhaps the best team in the NHL. It didn’t lead to a two-point night, but it provided a blueprint for how they must play more often....

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.
