Six Long Years (Wings 4, Stars 1)

The Red Wings put on a pretty damn good show tonight, in the face of an opponent who wouldn't go away, who really did scare us, even if just a little, even if we weren't about to admit it. The Stars fought until the end, and they were far better than they were given credit for being. But the Wings looked great and they did exactly what they needed to do - work as a unit, a gritty, determined, talented unit, that really, really wants to lift Lord Stanley's Cup. Now they just have to beat Pittsburgh. One step away. Be proud of them.

Game One of the Battle of NPI will be Saturday night at 8:00 pm - Elly and I are taking a mini-vacation to Toronto and will catch it together. With luck we'll get a preview post up before then, but for sure if neither of us kills the other, you'll hear from us after the weekend is over.

In the meantime enjoy these:

This is what everything is for.

Where in Toronto are you planning to watch? ;)

Congratulations, Steph! I probably won't congratulate the actual team, but I'm happy you're enjoying your team's run.

And congrats to Elly, too. Don't kill each other. :D

Connie: I totally thought so too!

DS: I'm not sure where we'll be on Saturday, but I think I talked my friend into going to Philthy McNasty's on Monday for Game 2 - I haven't been there in ages!

Patty: Aww, understandable :) Thanks for a great series - we'll work on the no killing.
