I don’t even know what to write about this game. Two and a half periods of it freaking sucked. Our passes were off. Our D was on vacation. Pyatt kept having chances to score close to the net and didn’t. We were down three to nothing. People were leaving early. Fans were booing (more on that tomorrow). It looked bleak.
Oh little Turris. Pots us a goal. But it’s still 3-1 and we were sucking it up. There wasn’t enough time to make one of our grand comebacks from last year. Throw this one in the books people.
Holy crap son. Cam Ward was sick tonight. He made so many good saves. He’s a Cup winning goalie. A Conn Smythe winner.
Was Turris daunted? Oh hell no. Dear Mr. Smythe Winner, I’ll take 2 goals, please and thanks. Sincerely, Kyle Turris. PS ~ Gee whiz you’re a nice man!
Ok but we were still down a goal and we had less than three minutes left.
Then it happened. All hell broke loose……
Uppy scores. He’s had a rough couple games. But he tied that game up and flipped the hell out!
Despite some rookie mistakes, OEL played 20:02 (0:47PP and 2:02PK) and was a +3 for the night.
Oh and did I mention…..
He got his first NHL point?
And they actually didn’t take it away from him.
Congrats Oliver! Super proud.
Who else was good?
Wolski had two assists.
Oakie had an assist.
Uppy had a goal and an assist.
OEL (!!!) had his assist.
And of course, in addition to his TWO goals, Turris had an assist. You lil studmuffin.
Of course, we lost in OT. But we stole a point that we had no business getting. And Tippett is gonna slay these dudes in practice. No bueno.
So Doan comes back after the next game, which is in Montreal.
