All Is Well…Gary Says The Playoffs Start Tonite

In a stunning decision from the NHL front office in Pittsburgh, midget commissioner Gary.Ass Bettman announced just moments ago that Sidney Crosby has been named Cosmopolitan Magazine's Man of the Decade and that the NHL playoffs will start this evening. First round matchups will be announced thirty minutes before game times.  If any visiting team can't make it to their scheduled game, that round will be postponed until the new glossy Crosby posters have been completely reviewed in Bettman's private office, with soft lighting.

None of that is true, except the part about Bettman being a midget, the Cosmo award for Rosby, the poster thing and the soft lighting.  So, the playoffs aren't really starting tonite.

But if they were?

The Wings would be playing Vancouver.  Is that some sort of crazy-ass coincidence or what?

Nuts.

Two of them. If Luongo has those, he's in tonite because of the violation Detroit levied upon him the last time out.

Whatever. The Wings, because they did last night, can score on the power play, win on the road and profess allegiance to their coach.

It's a late one and I'm guessing, maybe, two of you are sober. Have at it, by god.  It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Much like the Wings and their streak, UM has a 22 year streak of making the NCAA playoffs. Red and the Boys will have to win the final CCHA tourney to keep that streak alive. Go Blue!

Yeah, almost ended a few years ago but they won the CCHA tourney in an upset and got the automatic bid.

This year it might come down to Sparty vs UM, both been overachieving in the playoffs.

It is GodDamn difficult to give up a 2x1 odd man rush straight from the opening face off, and a goal, all in 6 seconds, but the Wings did it.

Ah yes.  Playing Vancouver, in Vancouver, where every time the damn puck gets near the goalie the entire crowd yells “LOUUUUU.”  So unbelievably annoying.  To me, worse than the Tootoo whistles.
