Wednesday's Open Skate: And... Here... We... Go

New, comments

The Final begins tonight. In hockey, this is called the Final. Singular, because there's only one.

Good morning campers. It's time for the team of the decade so far supported by the scum of the earth to face off against arguably the best run team in the East. I'm excited, mostly because Chicago is finally playing a team that wants to win games by scoring goals and moving the puck. Anaheim landed more hits on Chicago than Pacquiao did against Margarito, and still lost. Minnesota tried to rope-a-dope Chicago... it um, didn't work. Tampa has beaten 3 straight old entitled teams, so naturally, we're all pulling for the boys from old Florida.

Here are some links to previews, but I'm sure we'd rather just go on about it below in the comments section because this is OTF.
