I heard Justin Abdelkader looked fantastic in his debut tonight. Might be joining the club for the playoffs. I'd be ecstatic about that - he's replacing Maltby due to injury right now, but he plays just like him. Skilled skater, defensive-oriented, very gritty. We need a guy like him on the 3rd or 4th line. Another draft gem by the Wings.
Yeah, it looks like the stars have lined up for the Wings... (and I don't mean Dallas)
They had to work until the end for the Presidents Trophy which by all accounts is a jinx but nontheless, does guarantee home ice throughout and any and all game 7's at the JOE!
They were able to rest and reoup the injuries and open up with division foe Nashville, who I believe they were 5-3 against during the season.
Lets go WINGS!
