We've been monitoring our friends at NBC Sports virtually all day, and only within the last few hours did they finally switch their front page story from one about the NBA Finals -- which start Thursday on another network -- to one about Game 5 between the Detroit Red Wings and the Pittsburgh Penguins -- which, as we all know, will actually air on NBC this evening.
If this is indeed the end of our beloved Stanley Cup playoffs, let's go out with a bang, people. Bring the snark, make with the funny. And remember, the Red Wings aren't playing for themselves -- they're playing for the economically challenged people of Detroit. And also Henrik Zetterberg. And anyone who owns this chair.
