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.

Chicago steals another Hockeytown tradition, playing Darth Vader’s theme.

That Hayes is treemendous. Best damn Penalty shooter in the LEAGUE.  Great man.  His children are beautiful.  Wife a fricking “10”. His dog loves him.  Teammates bow to him.

...and he was Conk Blocked.

Sit down punk.

Toews has Crosby head disease, anytime he falls down his head immediately swings to find the nearest ref.

I think Bert could have scored there if he had two hands on his stick to bring it to his back hand.

I hate that shit.
