The golden ice at Wings Stadium was done for a fifth year.

Don't eat the yellow ... ice

KALAMAZOO, Mich. -- In case you've ever wondered what golden ice looks like -- and I know you have -- then here you go.

It's the annual McDonald's Golden Ice game here at Wings Stadium. The Wings are 2-2-0 in these games.

I had a headache before I even got here; this will make it worse. It will be easier to see the puck than in the annual green-ice game here on St. Patrick's Day. But it really is blinding.

This completes the Komets' string of 25 games in 44 days. I've never come across a more grueling stretch of games.
