Forget the cookie-cutter gamethread. It's not that kind of party for the last ever Red Wings game at the Joe Louis Arena. I was there last night visiting "our dump" and the place was just as welcoming and kind as it always has been. I'd like to tell you that tonight's game doesn't matter and one way or another, this one is going to be about saying farewell to an old friend, but in all honesty I really want the Red WIngs to win, and I want this to be one of those increasingly rare "complete games" where the Red Wings play as dominant as they did for so many years in their home barn.

James Tiberius Howard III gets the final start. Let's do this.

As always, have fun in the comments and LGRW
