Wings, Hawks, Gary’s 13 Game Regular Season: Perfect.

I'm not going to lie. I'd forgotten about this thing until about thirty minutes ago.  Thankfully for you, I usually only need about six minutes to type a standard fact-based, non-biased work of art to keep you happy for a pop or two.

The Hawks are undefeated, invincible, a wrecking ball of talent and starch.  

The Wings are battered, Helm-less, down three defensemen and laden with rookies, castoffs and Swiss men.

Surely, all signs point to a Chicago walk in the park.

Right?

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

Tomato juice is very good on a hot humid summer day.

Tomato juice and beer is a good early morning kickstarter after a rough night.

after a couple of Lapin Kulta you can score and you can be very defensive.

Mickey’s right.  Hawks look dead tired.  But then, so do the Wings.

If the wings score 2 this period and win the NHL will outlaw the rope-a-dope tactic.
