Red Wings Flying HighBy Kevin Allen, USA TODAY
DETROIT — Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson is four days removed from an appendectomy, and he scored a huge goal. Justin Abdelkader is a month removed from being a minor leaguer.

But both rookies scored for the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday as their depth showed again in a 3-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"The minutes Abdelkader has played have been very valuable," Red Wings veteran Dan Cleary said. "He's a young player who is going to be a great NHL player.

Ericsson scored at 4:21 of the second period to tie the score at 1, and Abdelkader scored on a long- range shot during a 1-on-3 charge into the offensive zone in the third period to provide an insurance goal. He also scored an important goal in Detroit's 3-1 win Saturday.

"It kind of went on end. I think it caught everyone off guard. That's why you throw pucks on net; you never know how they're going to bounce."

Abdelkader played five minutes Saturday and fewer than nine minutes Sunday, yet he has two goals. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby has none, even though he looks dangerous every shift.

"When we got the first goal, we got an energy boost and we took advantage of that," Ericsson said. "They got some chances, but we controlled the game pretty good."

Although much was written about Ericsson playing in Game 1 just 72 hours after having his appendix removed, he simply credits modern medicine.

"Just a couple years ago, it took people a month to recover. It took me three days," he said.

He played 16 minutes in Game 2 and said he continues to feel better each day.

"I don't think there will be a big thing when I get grandkids," he said.
"I think it'll be an everyday situation. In 20, 30, 40 years, maybe surgery will develop to another level."

Pittsburgh forward Chris Kunitz said Detroit's ability to roll four lines and three solid defensive pairings is making a difference in this hard-checking series.

"They're a good team," Kunitz said. "They've shown that for the last 10,
12 years. You have to stay on them. We have to grind our game down, get them in behind the net, wear them down. We have to keep putting pucks toward the net. There were free pucks there tonight that we got to make sure we bat in. We can't have those second, third chances escape from us."

Creatine Supplements...

So, what is creatine? Our bodies naturally make the compound, which is used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, and is transported to the body's muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, it is converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles' ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
Unlike steroids or drugs, creatine is 100% natural and occurs naturally in many foods; therefore, it can never be banned from any sports or international competitions (unless they banned eating meat). Many foods especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef contain some creatine. However, the very best source of creatine by far is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight of material than any other source. sells only high quality 99.9% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate.

Nitric Oxide Supplements

1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.


Protein Supplements...

High protein diets, like Atkins Diet and South Beach, continue to gain in popularity among many dieters. Some athletes even use these diets and find they lose weight. Depending upon the type of athlete you are and what sort of sport you play, you might want to question the role of the high protein eating plan. Athletes should realize that much of the weight lost on these diets is a result of a decrease in total calories and the water loss that occurs with muscle glycogen depletion. If you perform high intensity or endurance training you probably know that glycogen depletion is one of the reasons athletes 'bonk' or 'hit the wall' in endurance competition. Without enough easy to access energy, in the form of glycogen, we simply run out of fuel.
