Day Four already! While it still feels a little odd minus my team, these playoffs have lived up its billing. To quote my favorite Bruce Willis The Last Boy Scout character Joe Hallenback, "And then some."
What great action we're seeing. Every underdog has demonstrated they belong. What. With even Les Habitants stunning the Caps on Tomas "Jagr" Plekanec's OT winner in a Game One upset where most notably, they silenced Alex Ovechkin, who had no shots. Shocking. He attempted some but they just never reached its destination. Jaroslav Spacek was responsible along with Andrei Markov for this. Imagine what our Buffalo contingent thinks. It'll be interesting to see how Ovie and Co. respond in essentially a must win tonight. ... Mean time, LOTCB's Sabres look to go two-for-two against the Bruins this afternoon with Game Two set for 1 ET on NBC. Or if you live in Long Beach, Cali like him, 10 in the morning. Fire up the eggs and coffee! We always kid or at least he does that times are always catered towards the West Coast, referencing late October baseball, March Madness, etc. Hopefully, they'll win. ... The late game features the Kings and Canucks at 10 here on Versus. If it's anything like Game One, wow. In what looks like the best series, it didn't disappoint. Great back and forth puck between two teams that don't care for each other. Jon Quick had himself a nice playoff debut even if it was a losing effort. Roberto Luongo though shaky saved his team's bacon in sudden death sweeping the puck off the goal line. Eventually, some Sedin magic led to Mikael Samuelsson's winner. Sick is how we'd describe it. Henrik Sedin showed why he won the Art Ross and probably should get MVP. Eerily reminiscent of that long classic over Dallas three Springs ago almost to the day. Will this be another classic?
Haircut for me and the bro.We'll review last night's wild action in a bit.
