So it was birthday hockey for me! All I wanted was for someone to punch Corey Perry in the face for me. Well that didn’t happen, but Yandle slashed him pretty good. Yands!
So we started out with Yandle getting high sticked (and it was scary as hell because it cut right below his eye even though he wears a visor. We get a four minute power play and our power play suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked. Yands was in the locker room, and we just chased the puck a lot.
We couldn’t get a lot of prolonged pressure at the Ducks end, but Ray and Radim broke away and Vrby hit Ray with a sweet assist for a goal!
The rest of the first period wasn’t too eventful, until the freaking Ducks tied the game up. Ugh. This is the point where the game could have gone either way. We’ve opened up the freaking floodgates and let the Ducks push us around before. Bryz has been good lately, but there is always that potential that he could completely lose his shit.
We went into the first intermission tied.
In the second, we tacked three on the Sucks! Wait……no, that looks right Pyatt, Lepisto, and Oakie all got goals.
Wait a sec.
Lepisto? That Finnish D kid? He doesn’t score.
Oh, but he does.
We just took control of the game and ran. SO MANY GOALS. SO SO SO MANY GOALS!
In the third period, Ray Whitney felt the need to score again.
RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY. You iz jivin’!
(Then Corey Perry scored. Douchebag.)
Then OEL set up Stempniak with a sweet ass pass for our sixth goal. SIX GOALS.
Who kicked ass? EVERYONE. There isn’t a player that I can say, wow, they were in trouble.
Concerning: Schlemko, finally getting to play, got a penalty that Ducks scored on. *gulp* Also, Fiddler got in a fight and got hurt, not returning for the whole game. EEEK! Jovo was scratched with an injury. Michal is still out hurt. Boedker got scratched. UGH!
Back to back home games on Monday and Tuesday! See youz there!
