after seeing the replay, looks as though Abby led with his right shoulder into Lydman's left shoulder first, then made some contact with the head, but it did not appear to be the principal point of contact; however, he did leave his feet so that can't be good as far as avoiding a suspension
at any rate, blown call by the refs to just hand the Ducks a 5-min. PP and toss Abby
Agreed. White is the last of the three d-man options I want to see play on Saturday. Colaiacovo moves the puck well, so I probably prefer him slightly over Lashoff.
Shame about DeKeyser regardless. Stepped right in and played like a veteran. The Wings will miss his speed and sound defensive play on the back end. I thought he was the best d-man for the Red Wings in the first two games.
and it's scary how shaky Kronwall has been, he just can't seem to settle down and play, seems to still be trying to do too much out there and it's hurting the team
he's the one who now needs to step up and play like he did in '08
