We come to it at last.

The great battle of our age.

And this is only the beginning.

Right now, our boys are gearing up and getting their minds ready to take on the Nashville Predators in Game One of the Western Conference Quarter Finals.  It was a roller coaster season…with ups and downs and streaks and injuries.  It all gets thrown out the window.

The puck drops soon.

The poster after the jump.

Here is what Head of the NOHS Graphics Art Department Josh Howard cooked up for you in his first ever post-season poster:


“Just because they serve you doesn’t mean they like you” – tagline from the movie Clerks.  Well the Red Wings serve us…AND they like us too.  Know what they don’t like?  Playing hockey in Tennessee…no one does.  When asked what Mike Babcock thought about showing up to the rink in Nashville:

“I’m not even supposed to be here today!”

The series should have started in Detroit.  Nothing we can do about it now except send this series back to the Joe up 2-0 with a bunch of astounded media pundits.

Let the haters hate.  Let the doubters doubt.  This team has a destiny…and it starts fulfilling it tonight.
