Detroit Red Wings v. San Jose Sharks, 9:00 PM EST.
What makes this game extra-nerve wracking is that the Wings have come back from a 3-0 deficit, having forced Game Seven by winning 3-1 on Tuesday. With a win tonight, they'll have accomplished what only 3 other teams in hockey history have done - won a series after being down 3 games to none.
With a victory, they will face Vancouver for the Western Conference finals. Look out, Angela!
Here's an amusing tidbit: about 18% of my hits today have come from folks Googling "Red Wings prayer" - the top two results are this post and this one: "Prayer Of The Red Wings Hockey Fan", which I wrote a couple years ago during the Stanley Cup Finals, when the Wings faced the Pittsburgh Penguins.
So I've updated it for this year:
Who art with centers
Hallowed be their game
The win will come
Should checks be done
At the boards
And in the corners.
Give them this game
And forgive them any bad passes
And don't give the Sharks good chances, defensemen!
And lead them not into high-sticking
But deliver them from losing.
Don't bother me after 9:00.
UPDATE: Oh well. Sharks won, 3-2. Life goes on.
