Wilderness Walk: Game 7 East Edition

It's all happening in the house that Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr built.

Buckle your seatbelts!
Buckle your seatbelts!

Do or die.  Win or go home.  Ice sheet or golf course.  These are the choices facing the Penguins and Lightning as they face off tonight in Pittsburgh.

The Blues also went quietly into the night as the Sharks put them away handily.

It's a great time to be a hockey fan.  Stanley Cup Finals, here we come!

And I present to you one of the more entertaining music videos I've seen in recent memory, I strongly encourage you to watch it.  Enjoy your Walk.
