Well it’s here. I’m almost ready. ‘‘Twas good having a few days and a couple of games to process. Just going to try and enjoy it.

Oilers invited the entire Sedin clan to the game to sit in the owners box, plan a little celebration. Class.

I imagine the game will start with a moment of silence for the Humboldt Broncos hockey team. It brings life’s reality back into it. How fortunate the twins were to get to play 17 seasons when so many young lives were lost travelling to a game.

Markstrom to start.

That’s all I know so far.

Let’s go out on a winning note. One more night of magic.....and then we are done.

Time to turn the page and let the future begin.

End of an era, etc etc.... Last chance to see some Sedinery and another great chance for the kids to step it up a notch or two.

GO SEDINS GO!

It will be an emotional night for a couple of reasons, and in the end it will bring together all of the good things about the sport and the communities it builds. And yes, even this here damned hockey board is another community built by hockey.

I am calm. I am calm. I am calm.

I literally heard Shorthouse being quoted this 5 or 6 times on sportsnet after the game.

Yup, I wanted to kill a Shorty... and the onion chopper.

Taped the game so I can fast forward through the game and just watch the ending.

The game was the best part about Thursday’s game cause it was unscripted but near perfect!

I’ll be soaking in the whole thing that’s for sure.
