The Wings Have Turned The Minutes To Hours

And I have no idea where the love of god has gone.  No, that's not pessimism talking. That's not me saying that adorable cherub, that drooling, babbling bundle of baby fat and joy, our precious 8lb baby Jesus has forsaken us and punished us for our many, many sins.  Baby Jesus has not decreed the end of our (shortened) season.

I'm talking about Stress.  I'm talking about disgusting, horrific Stress.  It's going to overtime tonite.  Because it must.

Double overtime, because if this season is going to end tonite it's going to end in the most painful way possible.

I'll say it again, how awesome would it be if that little tazmanian bastard skated out for the opening faceoff?  Do you know what Darren Helm would add to this equation? I don't. Because I can't remember the last time he played.

The musty old hall will be rocking.  Hopefully, if providence allows, we'll hear the echoes of  "You..Got...Kronwalled". My god that is a beautiful invention.

Something else, and I have to tell you this because I've sucked as a blogger for the entire year.  I've left the carrier Navy and moved on to the shooters, the small boys, the little ships who blast away.  Two weeks ago I took over as Command Master Chief of a Destroyer here in San Diego and the pace is...unbelievable.  That's why I've been largely absent except for the live blogs.  I don't see the work slowing down but I will maintain the blog the best I can. 

It's a Live Blog bitches.  One shift, one beer at a time.

And if there is anything you definitely wanna do going into a game 7, it’s blame your starting goaltender for a OT loss in the playoffs. Coaching at its finest

“I understand that Anaheim is the favorite and given how the regular season went that is to be expected.  But until proven otherwise I expect nothing good in the playoffs from any team coached by Bruce Boudreau.”

I was bottom of last page so my question was probably missed, but can someone explain why they broke away to commercial with 1 minute gone in OT? I totally missed the goal.

didn’t notice, actually.  was that NBC or FSD?  There aren’t supposed to be any TV commercial breaks in the OTs.

How could we not?  The present is a myth. There is only the past and the future.  We have to be from one, so it’s at worst a 50-50 shot.

I just rewound the dvr to watch the goal again and ducks announcer Brian Hayward actually said “And Henrik Zetterberg has tied this game up,” on the game winner in overtime.

Remember the kid who always sat in the “dumb row” in school?  Who knew he’d ever get a job broadcasting a professional sport?
