I had a good night. Did you guys have a good night?
Fleury throws another shutout, Pens lead Rangers 2-1
MAF had his second shutout in as many days, standing on his head at times to keep the NYR off the board in Game 3. Not bad for a goalie who has playoff confidence problems, right?
In case you tuned in late to the game and heard 47:26 of dead air, that’s because CROSBY SCORED (!!!!) in the first period and the commentators had nothing else to talk about.
Talking. Who needs talking when you have… goals. I was going to say goals.
Sid’s goal was set up by a long, beautiful pass from Robert Bortuzzo. This advertisement paid for by @alisonsykora.
The Rangers have played a ton of hockey in the past two weeks, so today gap gives them much needed rest. Personally, I hope there is construction in all of their luxury condo buildings until Game 4 on Wednesday night. I made a lot of this delicious chicken mushroom farro risotto, if you want to come over.
Kings win again, go up 2-0 over Ducks
So far this series can be summed up with one headline from LATimes.com:
Marian Gaborik scored 34 seconds into last night’s game. The NBC announcers were barely in their seats before the puck was in the net. After his last-minute tying goal in Game 1, then the OT winner, Gaborik sure is “fitting in” – so well I bet he got randomly drug tested during first intermission (probably by someone from the Blue Jackets). He is on fire, and so are the Kings. This is their sixth straight win. Jonathan Quick is playing like he did in their Cup run. Hell, they had Jeff Schultz on D last night and they still won!
Down 2-0 in a series is not really “must win.” If anyone proved that, it was the Kings in R1. But the Ducks are reeling. History may be destined to repeat itself but if Anaheim doesn’t win in GM3, I don’t think another legendary 0-3 comeback is happening so soon.
Tonight it’s Bruins vs. Habs in the battle for a 2-1 series lead, followed by the Hawks quest to go up 3-0 over the Wild. Are you surviving? How is anyone getting any sleep? Who washed my Toews shirt on hot so it shrank into a size only James Neal would wear? I think I need a break. Even Pierre is off tonight – 20 games in 20 nights? Big deal. We’ve watched at least 40.Tags: Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins
