08:17 AM ET 04.19 | Ken Hitchcock proved himself, yet again, a big-picture guy when asked what happens if St. Louis lost Thursday. "If this thing goes 2-2, then it's who's got the best bus and who's got the best plane -- and that's not good for either team," the Blues coach said, referring to the added travel that comes with an extended series. "They want this thing going where they can start taking it over -- and we're looking at it as it gets scary after [Thursday]. You're talking long flights, not much sleep, every second day. And who's got the best plane, who's got the best bus." ... "They're looking to get it back and get us out," he concluded, "and we're looking to get out of the travel part because that's a new animal for us, too."

Fortunately for St. Loo, they're not playing a team from Seattle.

from chowhound:
) The Coney Dog: the coney dog is a hot dog that is covered in beanless chilli, raw onions and yellow mustard. The dog itself is skinny and has a nice snap to the skin when you bite into it. The chilli again is beanless and compared to the coney dogs in the Flint, MI area are runnier. 2) Square Deep Dish Pizza- another quintessential Detroit Food is the square deep dish pizza together with antipasto salads.

you don't eat red meat, so I imagine it might sound bad to you.
