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.

Really wish we were staying in the WC. Love to see what sort of meltdown the Wings would cause. Remember Crawford screaming at Bowman?

I honestly wonder if he’s getting diagnosed for Alzhemiers right now.  Dude seems to forget what game he is watching a couple times a night.

‘member that post game presser, probably in 97 or 98, after we beat the Avs after game one or two, and Roy was at the table with Deadmarsh, and he just blurts out something like, “Detroit, they must pay the price,” and gets up and stomps put of the room…. Deadmarsh sort of sheepishly followed cause he didn’t know how to follow that. Quoth Bugs Bunny: what a maroon!!!
