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.

It only took Edzo ten minutes to ‘compliment’ Detroit on their uncanny ability to get away with interference all game long.

The guy is a blithering idiot.

Eddie’s a professional.  If he says only the Wings are getting away with penalties then it has to be true.

Jesus Lashoff, we had control of the puck, they get the shot and an offensive face off.

Quenville has made adjustments and right now the Hawks are effectively entering our zone.  Time for Uncle Mike to adjust and shut them down.

Why is the production crew even trying to isolate on something like that?  Just to prove Subtle Interference’s point?  NBC is a fuching joke.

Given the amount of grief so far about EO (Edward, that is, not that Michael Jackson / Disney ‘ride’), I’m feeling pretty grateful I’m watching CBC.

Wow. I had no idea that Douche Canoe’s skillset involved hearing all the way to the far end of the bench, where Babacock is telling Quincey not to let the stretch man in behind him.

Seriously, how are the retards employed?

Somehow, I feel that I have insulted retards worldwide, for which I apologize.
