Ouch! Hurting Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Usually it’s the Lions ruining Thanksgiving around Detroit — but the Red Wings squashed the joy out of Thanksgiving Eve this year.

On the biggest bar night of the year Wednesday, the Wings gave their fans reason to drown their sorrows with a terrible 6-0 loss to Toronto.

“I don’t have a lot of words, it’s embarrassing,” Red Wings forward Luke Glendening said. “Get beat 6-0 in your own building, it’s disappointing for sure.

“It’s frustrating. I’m always proud to wear this jersey and it’s something everyone in this room is proud to wear, but we have to go out and prove we’re proud to wear it every night.”

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun has the other side story,

On American Thanksgiving, the Maple Leafs were treated to a wild turkey shoot.

They beat up the Red Wings 6-0 on Wednesday, giving new coach Sheldon Keefe three wins, the most by a Toronto in-season bench replacement since expansion and the most since Pat Quinn debuted with three in 1998-99.

The rebuilding Wings, winless in seven, are as bad as advertised, but have an injury list that includes top scorer Anthony Mantha, with the added misfortune of two ailing goalies in this mismatch. Jimmy Howard left with a groin injury after Toronto’s third goal at 9:48 of the first. A flu-ridden Jonathan Bernier allowed three, but he also made 30-plus saves.

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.
