We seem to have trouble getting out of the gate. The first period was very disjointed and we didn’t seem to have a ton of drive. Thankfully, the Avs pretty much sucked. I didn’t realize until today that Pyatt didn’t play last night. What does that say about how he typically plays? Uh oh.
We have got to cut down on those goals we allow in the last 2-3 minutes of the game. They kill us. Bryz was piiiiiiiiiiiiissed. Then the Avs score again. Building had no life. Then Ryan Hollweg goes and puts a big hit on a dude and the building kind of wakes up.
Our first goal was a freaking sick play by Lee. He was in on the forecheck and had to battle through this dude to come away with the puck and get in to score. For not being a huge dude, Lee is usually really good at coming out of a battle with the puck.
Then Whitney scores…….. I think? And then Doan! On the power play! I had a sleeping baby so I wasn’t able to fully celebrate these goals but………… WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Then we kinda screw the pooch by letting the Avs tie the game late in the third. Overtime was uneventful and the shootout sucked for us. No one scored.
Radim Vrbata, the man you can depend on, got hella poke-checked. Mark jinxed him, so it wasn’t Vrby’s fault.
We play at LA on Tuesday and then our home/home with San Ho. #Nervous
Still no Jovo. Still no Korps. Taylor’s hurt. Marty’s dead. #FML
