Tough Schedule Ahead

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings are about to tackle a gauntlet that is pretty remarkable.

Beginning with Monday's game in Minnesota, the Wings are embarking on a seven-game segment in which they face seven of the top eight teams in the NHL:

► Monday at Minnesota (29-11-3, 61 points);

► Thursday at New York Rangers (30-13-4, 64 points);

► Feb. 23 vs. Colorado (33-8-4, 70 points);

► Feb. 26 vs. Toronto (30-12-3, 63 points);

► March 1 vs. Carolina (32-11-3, 67 points);

► March 4 at Tampa Bay (31-11-6, 68 points);

► March 5 at Florida (32-10-5, 69 points).

It's an incredible stretch, one that is daunting, but one the Wings are eager to tackle while attempting to maintain a spot in the playoff chase.

"It's going to be a good test for us," forward Robby Fabbri said. "We have some days in between each game so we can prepare and get ready, which is a little unusual. But in the end, we'll go out and no matter who the opponent, we have to do what makes us successful and when we're doing the right stuff it doesn't matter what team it is (they're playing), we're going to be successful."

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.
