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.

The Wings really need to board someone in white.  The penalty would be well worth it.

Backhand better than Cindy’s? I’ve watched Dats and plenty of other players with insane backhands. I could be wrong but I’m pretty sure Cindy uses a straighter curve, so it’s easier for backhand. Hate NBC and Olcyzk is a shitstain in Pierre Maguire’s panties.

A nice hard check from behind head-first into the boards would work well for him.  Since they don’t even call that half the time anymore anyways…

Sorry, I absolutely hate all the shot blocking in the game these days. Some call it gutty, I call it stupid. It’s what you have a goalie for.

Hope Smith makes it back

every little commercial transition, every little replay, every little everything just SCREAMS that NBC is trying to make this look like the Cawks are pushing the Wings around.

when Datsyuk made that brilliant play along the boards to pass it out front, not a single mention, didn’t even say his name.

sad that this is how the pro league for the best sport on the planet is run.  shameful.

seems to me that was a disjointed, cautious period for both teams.

Bob Cole, “End of the period, some good scoring chances.  Actually there were none.”

Hello, Bob, the pasture is calling.  Time for a permanent visit.

The funny thing is, as blind and senile as Bob Cole is, he still makes the NBC crew look like the ass-clowns they are.

NBC 1st intermission story…...“Toews Leading the Way.” Um, how do they figure that? Had to watch the 1st without volume. It was glorious.

I don’t expect announcers to be completely unbiased, but Eddie’s an insult to objectivity.  How many times is he going to try to convince himself and everyone else that the Wings are interfering cheaters?  News flash Eddie:  The Wings have as much right to open ice as the Cawks.  Go fuch yourself.
