Yes ladies and gentlemen, closing time begins tonight for the Detroit Red Wings just as surely as it began in game 5 for the Chicago Blackhawks. The pressure is on both teams now; Chicago to stay alive and Detroit to avoid squandering a 3-1 series lead. Make no mistake, while a Wings loss won't end the series it will erase all the good will their playoff run has inspired. Detroit faces a "must-win" game tonight in almost every possible sense. In my heart I believe they will respond but I can't lie; I'll be holding my breath until the final whistle sounds. Let's hope I have a hard time hearing it over all the cheering in the JLA.
