Light all the Mups. Do it now! - Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Here we go again! How will this injury decimated Wings team handle Hudler and the hookers Flames? I dont' know the answer, but in the words of REO Speedwagon, we're...

"Ridin' the storm out, waitin' for the thaw out
On a full moon night in the Rocky Mountain winter.
My wine bottle's low, watching for the snow
I've been thinking lately of what I'm missing in the city.
And I'm not missing a thing
Watchin' the full moon crossing the range
Ridin' the storm out
Ridin' the storm out."

Hold on to your butts!
