Cranky, tired and my playoff angst already in gear in the final few days of the season. I’m hopeful of two things…The Florida Panthers staying out of the basement of the Eastern Conference, and The Chicago Blackhawks making the playoffs. I am at two opposite ends of the spectrum eh?

WE WILL MEET IN THE BUD LITE TERRACE IN THE LEFT CORNER AS YOU FACE THE BAR AREA. I’LL BE THE ONE WEARING THE #25 RED SWEATER WITH NIEUWENDYK ON THE BACK. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
