6 More Games And The Conflagration Will Be Complete

I think I spelled "conflagration" right.  I think. I don't have time to worry about that.  I just don't. I'm way late for this Live Blog and there is just no time to waste.

Chicago appears confident. They have a plan.  Mike Tyson, in all his wisdom, once said in  his best Gary Bettman voice that, "everybody's got a plan 'til they get punched in the mouth."

An early lead. An early goal. An early Kronwallian experience would serve as that punch in the mouth.

The "first ten" minutes tonite might be the most important "first ten minutes" in recent Wing history.

Circle the village.  Prepare the torches.  Because if this thing goes as we hope tonite?

Then we're talking a big, fat ass Western Conference fire.  A big one. With kerosene and high flames and smores and Backwoods cigars. 

10 to 12.  6 to the Big Burn. 

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Cola with what I call the “Rafalski”.... ignore the possible one-timer, and corral the puck so you can fire it right into the defender who then had time to then get in the way.

Cawks playing like they think they can hang.  Very passive aggressive horseshit.

I tried it once and Siri has never worked since.  Apparently I violated the iOS terms of service as well as several international treaties.

Posted by VooX from Behind the Bar in the Hasek Club Car on 05/23/13 at 08:13 PM ET

Not suggesting illegal drug use… oh wait, of course I am.  Get a little smoke in you and have a semantical argument with Siri.  Thank me later.

Cakws are not smashing bodies.  They’re actually content with playing hockey.  Fine.  Let’s play.

Holy crap what a bad goal given up by Rask in the in-game highlight.
