The Prospects Are Ready

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings' website,

When the Wings take on the Chicago Blackhawks in the first game of the tournament, the top line of Taro Hirose-Joe Veleno-Filip Zadina will already have some familiarity with each other.

"They're unbelievable players, so I'm really excited to get out there," Hirose said after Friday's morning skate at Centre Ice Arena. "We're been skating together all summer and we've talked about playing together and what it would be like so it will be fun tonight to see what it'll be like."

The three are also together on one of the power-play units.

"I think it's good for us because we've been practicing together since June or something," Zadina said. "We know each other really well. It can help us during the game, even during the PP when we actually feel pretty good on the ice right now. It's very good."

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.
