I HATE SHOOTOUTS

by Anne

12 Shooters? Oy.

It felt like how other teams must feel playing against us... down 2-0 then come back to win. For once we were on the other side! We didn't blow the lead this time!

Two players who I'd be willing to part with came through for us - Kotalik and the Soviet Bomber.

I haven't heard Max interviewed in a while, is it just that I'm used to an accent like Sissy's, or is Max's accent not as thick as it used to be?

Miller was rock solid in the shootout....except Kaberle. But, he really looked like the Millsey of last season in the shootout. They were coming at him from every angle and he stopped 'em all....except Kaberle.

Great shots by Pommer, Britney and Staffy, freakin' goalposts.

I LOVED Millsey's reaction to Max's goal in the shootout. I like it when he just lets it out and celebrates. He really was badly out of position for those first two goals in regulation and he redeemed himself majorly later on.

That was not a nice clean win. They really battled for it. If only they played every game like that earlier in the season...but I digress.

Yay Big Bear! That was the right call by those who review the goals. I like when they have good calls like that.

I still don't think we're going to make the playoffs, but it'll be fun anyway. We probably won't beat the Habs. I really really really want Ottawa to be eliminated. They lost 3-0 to Montreal tonight, woo!

Shockingly, both Weber and Sekera were a -1 on the night. Well, it only proves they're human, darn it.

Only 1 penalty in the whole game, to Pratters. Not bad. Too bad they scored on their only PP. That's ok. I don't recall the last game when we had only 1 penalty. Well done.

God I HATE scoreboard watching.
