Well the good news is, WE ARE THE KINGS OF TAKING GAMES TO OVERTIME!!!!!!
The bad news is, WE EPICALLY FAIL DURING OVERTIME.
So we didn’t win. We got a point. Whatevs.
The stupid Wings scored within two minutes of the game starting and I kinda had that “oh god” moment.
But it’s ok, they woke a sleeping giant.
Woooooooooooooooo! Dats the boy!
Marty not only got a goal but was 6-0 in the faceoff circle in the first period.
Total faceoffs won % tonight: Marty 74%, Belanger 36%, Fiddy 33%, and Turris 38%.
Oh, and Marty lead all forwards in time on ice at 20:03.
Tonight we also learned that Lee Stempniak HATES Jimmy Howard. Stemps got TWO penalties for beating on Howard!
I am seriously contemplating a Stempniak jersey. If only he were Czech! Or Finn!
Speaking of Finns…….
Korps was being a lil studly man tonight! He’s always super speedy (I would call him Speedy Gonzalas but don’t want the AZ police to think he’s Hispanic and ask to see his papers). He just flies. He flies. And tonight he scored!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, he didn’t score. He whiffed on the shot.
It was the perfect pass to Yandle and Korps got an assist when Yandle buried it!
Of course we let the Red Wings come back and we lost in OT. I mean, after all, we ARE the Coyotes 😉
Oh little failboats, I still love you.
So why am I not freaking out?
Overall, we played well against a tough team. Bryz was awesome. PK was pretty good. Plus we didn’t have Doan. I’d be freaking out if the effort wasn’t there. We prolly woulda pulled it out if OEL didn’t have one of his growing pain moments at the wrong time.
It’s ok OEL! You got hosed on the call and the puck going off your skate was not your fault.
Who did good: Hanzal. And Marty. And Marty Hanzal. And Korps! And Yandle! And Hanzal.
Who is in the doghouse: Whitney and Tippett. And Pyatt.
Tippett: What the fuck? Scottie Upshall is one of our best offensive dudes. Kyle Turris is skilled. Prucha? He needs his Czechs. Why the hell are these skill players getting 10 to 11 minutes of ice time when we are sorely lacking offensive firepower? Did Uppy piss you off or what? Are you just punishing Prucha by keeping him off the Czech line? How about benching Whitney til he gets his head straight? Worked for Wolski.
DON’T MAKE ME MAKE A SIGN. I’LL DO IT FOOL!
