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.

Looks like Jameson shots for the duration. I will totally understand if any of the 19 decide to go ahead and block my posts tonight.

Sounds like the time to highlight your posts, not ignore them.

Not an Emrick fan myself. Only so many “and he spirits it up the ice” I can take.

This. “and he waffle boards it away”, on a blocker save. What a maroon. He’s as bad as Oilpatch, in a different way.

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

Just had a dude decked out in Nordilanche regalia confront me at the New Belgium Brewing bar and grill here in the KDEN airport. “Wings suck!” he says.  I just laughed at him and told him he was so right, all the other teams in the league would LOVE to have done as well as his did this year.

Bartender gave me a free beer and turned on the game for me.  Screw basketball highlights he says..lolz
