The beginning of the end starts tonight. Three games in four days and then the sudden stop at the end that no one likes. We, of course, shall plod on into the playoffs and off-season, but it is all just a bit depressing. Even frustrating, losing hockey is better than no hockey. Sigh.
You get the Canucks tonight, so at least there is that. Should be enjoyable to watch two teams that at least sort of get revved up for each other playing with no meaning on the line. Old scores settled? New beefs created? You just never know. I wouldn't miss it is all I know.
The Question of the Day is posted, Facebook has yet to eat it, and I actually posted it before writing this today, so it better still be there. Also, don't forget to download your bracket (two posts below this one). Things are very close to being all set, so be ready.
