Today We Settle All Family Business

When this fire is finally done, and there's nothing but embers left and the Wings have pissed all over the ashes of the West once and for good?  It will have been the perfect way to leave this idiotic, Bettman-created sewer of a conference.  

Nashville? Eliminated from playoff contention, largely because the Wings turned it up with two weeks left.  Nice knowing you Bubba.

St. Louis? A great joke. So much promise, yet nothing to show for it.  Now resigned to sit and watch the two teams they despise the most. Again. 

Columbus? Again, another nice little team that almost got there but petered out when the Wings ratcheted up the heat.

Anaheim...a former nemesis, but now just an overrated afterthought.  Nice knowing you, Corey.

Chicago...oh, what a way to leave.  More on that in a minute.  But, if it happens, the sweetest road East would be through San Jose.  The Wings owe them and this is just the year to do it.

Chicago's loading up their top line: Kane, Sharpe, Toes.  That's the best Quenneville can do. He's tried everything else. It's his last ditch bit of genius.  Unfortunately for him, the real genius has better hair and he hunts big game. By himself. With one bullet.

3 games to do this, but you know it needs to end tonite.  You can't take it and I know for a fact I absolutely can't.  

LGRW.  Settle this. It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

Having to listen to Eddie Olchyzkykdddka;dkichich;‘e.kidhk should be a violation of the Geneva Convention. Pierre is a douche, but I can forgive him.  Doc Emmerich is a harmless spazz.But Eddie O…....... there is a circle of hell just for him right?

Wings are just waiting to see if Jimmy has another goose egg in him. If not, they’ll try to score.

Just to state the obvious, it’s only a matter of moments before the flood gates open unless we start getting some offensive zone possession time.

Did these guys forget how to hit?
