The Czechs have been quiet. They have had flashes of brilliance and have been solid on defense, but they have been…..quiet. Have they lost the Czech magic?
IT WAS A TRAP BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCHES!
7 Czech points in this game. 7! LIKE SEVEN! HOLY CRAP!

Marty: 2 assists +
Z: 1 assist
7 TONS OF DETROIT TEARS and Amy happy dancing FOREVER!
I guess the boys were still excited from the slumber party last nite cuz 49 seconds into the game, Sami scores. This goal was the product of crazy Prucha work! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!
This goal shut those Detroit fans up! It was incredibly important to get this goal because A) it gave us confidence, B) it shut up those bandwagoners in red, and C)Detroit tied it up.
The second part of the first period got away from us and we were lucky to get out relatively unscathed. We got outshot 13 to 7 but the score was all that mattered.
Badness: Shane Doan lept over Jimmy Howard and crashed into the boards. He didn’t return to the game. (Conspiracy theory: Doan is fine and it was all a ploy to make us play together and better. Tippett is JUST that genius.)
Wolski from Stemps and Lombo
YES! This kid was inconsistent for the Avs but apparently he shows up when it counts. Playoffs baby! Lombo, I see you getting ur 5th point of the playoffs!
Thank God this period we controlled the puck more and I didn’t feel like we were chasing them all over the ice. Momentum swing on a powerplay that didn’t end up with a goal, but was good.
We controlled the puck even more!
Then who scores?
PRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU! Ranger cast-off with the game winning goal in a major playoff game. Pru had so many chances and finally made a beautiful move to shove it around Howard on a dish from Vrby.
We were up 3-1. Bryz decided to keep it close and then it was 3-2. Ooooooh Bryz you are so in this for the entertainment, I swear!
Czechs weren’t done.
Radim. Vrbata. Suckas!
Radim, the one I can always depend on. It’s full of truth.
We won. At the Joe. 4 -2. On national TV. The secret is out!
MVP: PRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCHA! You little fireball.
MVP #2 Radim.
Nokie had SIX hits to lead the team!
Jovo: Pretty sure he could be arrested for assault. I FREAKIN’ LOVE IT!
Sami: Gritty and a goal? You badass.
Bryz: You withstood a ton of shots in the first.
Wolski: You love the goal horn.
While we won without Doan, we need Jesus back. He can heal himself right? Fiddy is hurt and Lang played for him. I guess we will find out what’s up Tuesday. Until then……. AWWWWHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
