And Then There Was One…Live Blog Our Last Best Chance For A Title

Looking back to October we had two teams with legitimate title hopes (the Wings, of course, and the Tigers), another giving us plenty of reason to be optimistic and one more that I was actually hoping would stay locked out forever.

Down went the Tigers.  Drew Brees and a Detroit secondary with the hands of William Tell finished off the Lions today.  The Pistons are back and none of you care, which makes you good Americans. 

So, as it should be, that leaves the Wings.

And tonite’s matchup is relevant because one way or another it’s gonna happen again in May.  Before the midget shrew hands over the Twelfth at the Joe in front of 20K plus 19 and the sad Pens, the manger baby’s Wings will have to get by baby brother. And that’s gonna be some series, sister. 

So the preview part two continues this evening and for some reason Jim Fuching Howard played last night, pushing the Conk into a tight spot tonite.

And you can take that in any direction you want.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches.

And the game’s most one-dimensional $6 million joke of a player, $0.20, dives and gets no sympathy call.

Gotta love Dangle Dangle faking out three players in the d-end and then being able to take the shot on the rush. We are truly blessed to be Wings fans.

Well, there’s the obligatory penalty shot against the Wings.

On the same exact infraction as Seabrook waaaaaaaay back in the first period.

Fuch you, Hasenfratz.  Fuch you, Pollack.

You can sweep the puck under the goalies pad and that is not covering the puck

Can only close your hand on the puck in the crease if you’re wearing a black glove.

Never seen this many P-Shots in my life.

The Wings can’t buy a break from the refs in Chicago, its ridiculous.

They both have called penalty shots this season against the Wings. Two nights in a row.

Un-fuching-real. Bitches.

Tin foil anyone?

Same here.  It was a quick whistle for sure… but I don’t think it should have been a penalty shot.

Anyone else see how excited the ref was to call that penalty shot?  Yikes.
