Time to skip school, call in sick to work, cancel your friendships and stock up on canned goods. It’s playoff time. I’m wearing my Crosby jersey to work in DC and the Red Wings fan in my office can’t look at me. And there’s this:
We know you’re ready for tonight – for yelling at the TV, throwing couch cushions, texting frantically and running outside to do cartwheels in the yard. All the heart-breaking, tear-inducing, pride-swelling euphoria of the post-season.
Mike Green should be back tonight. Sidney Crosby will not. The Sedins are still robots. Tim Thomas is the NHL BAMF and gets our vote for Vezina. Corey Perry was the only player to hit 50 goals. Dallas fired their coach. Minnesota has a sense of humor. And in the end, it’s just the beginning.
