On nights when the Sabres don't play, I appreciate it when my other teams win.
Last night, the Kings played a fantastic first period and then a solid start to the 2nd before they crapped the bed in the beginning of the 3rd, blew a three goal lead and allowed the Stars to tie. Fortunately, Michal Handzus said "Yo, eff this, I want these two points" and scored the OT winner 55 seconds in. Phew!
The biggest story of the night was Anze Kopitar's first career hat trick. Hooray! Confetti!
