“Oh baby don’t it feel like heaven right now
Don’t it feel like something from a dream”

After all the talk about Shea Weber, how the Wings are gonna respond, what coaching changes may be made, and what the line ups will be for tonight...I just want it to be game time. The playoffs are what we wait for all year, and now that we know what kind of series this will be, I can’t wait to watch every second. I want to see the Wings come out with fire, and stay on fire. I want both teams to be able to play 5v5 hockey, and I want to see the Wings rush the net more and stop trying to beat Chef Boyardee from the point.

I’m sure most of us heard the same story about Coach ice-stare getting locked out of Nashville’s arena when he went for a run to clear his head today. Every radio station was talking about it this morning.  I love how he got back in the building, he just kept pounding until he got in. That’s leading by example.

 

About 8 and a half hours to go…

The waiting is the hardest part.
