Welcome To The Night Of The Living Dead

Updated below with Voox' annual DC contest.

As predicted...

...it's been a motherfucher of a day.  So we're starting way early, as I expect most of you are.

I'm in no mood for hijinks and I hope the Wings aren't either.

The Streak is the Thing right now.  Tomorrow we can worry about the next step that baby Jesus told us we should expect every season.  But tonite?

Tonite, it's all about 22.  

No other team in this damn league can lay current claim to the success of this organ-I-zation.  No other team can claim a fan base as rabid as you are, and I'll put ours--with our transplants and our Yoopers and our downriver puck bunnies--up against anyone's, Toronto and Montreal included.  

The streak continues tonite because it must.  The streak continues because every other team wants it to end, all other fans need it to end, every media member except ours (minus Drew Sharp and Pat Caputo) has the story already written and are just waiting to hit send.

Screw this league, this charade orchestrated by a shrew of a fraud commissioner.  Screw you, the fans of every other team. And I mean EVERY other team.  Detroit has carried this league.  The Red Wings have filled your warm-weather arenas and you can kiss all that revenue goodbye starting next October...finally.  

You pray for our demise but you can all suck it because this display of sustained superior performance continues tonite.

Extend The Streak, Wings. Just. Get. In.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  All aboard. 

WAIT...DON'T LEAVE  YET.  This just in from Voox...

Playoff traditions are widespread, so let's get the word out again about our own playoff tradition.

The annual "Pierre McGuire is a Douche Canoe Ticket Contest" is back.  Get a sign on TV behind Pierre McGuire's head saying Pierre is a Douche Canoe and win tickets to a Maple Leafs regular season home game of your choice next year.

To ensure you get credit for this incredible public service, email douchecanoe.contest@gmail.com in advance so I can award the tickets to you once successful.  All emails will be strictly confidential, good luck to all.

If Minnesota wins this game, standings in the West will show a four point gap between the third seed and the ninth seed.  Parity is here, ladies and gentlemen, and right now the Wings are as dangerous as anyone.

VANcouver could end up with 61 if they win, still a measly 6 points between 3rd and 9th. 

Gary. Ass.

Parity is a bit artificial this year.  Cut out half the season’s games and things will naturally be a bit tighter of course.

To be fair, with the amount I consumed, it wasn’t the rum’s fault.

Duh.  Games unplayed.  Rum seems to be dulling my senses..  As said, though, six points is still a measly gap.

Right as rain. I said the same thing the other day and was lampooned for it.  Bandwagon jumpers can shut their pie holes now.

Wow,  7 - 8 - 9 all won in regulation.

Gary Bettman musical chairs, 3 teams, 2 chairs.  Good night, Columbus.

That’s depressing.

Central almost put 4 in the playoffs.

Suter and Parise certainly don’t deserve 4 more games with the chokejob they just put on at the end of the season.

Looks like StL is locking up 4th and Home Ice against the winner of LAK SJS later tonight.

Before last week, Kate, I couldn’t agree.  But these Red Wings - this new team that just gelled in the last week - these Red Wings are as dangerous as anyone.

The Living Dead were all beat down tonight by the living.

Doesn’t always work out like that.

I just got the heavy sighing Congrats call from a guy who was talking shit last Sunday saying the Wings were dead. I told him never count us out until the fat lady sings. Don’t Bogart that rum bottle. Pass it.

Us and the Caps are the hottest teams going into the playoffs. The BJ’s would have been there too if not for Minny. Shame. They finnished something like 9 and 1 in their last 10.

True story.  Was talking to my lesbian neighbors, somehow the subject came up whether I ever thought of trying a homosexual affair. 

I said, “The thought of handling a man’s junk never appealed to me.”

She said, “Me neither.”

Funny as shit.

I think the Jackets finished 19-5-4 or something, best in the west over those games.

I could consult the long term POS chart but my eyes are not focusing very well right now.
