today i am happy and sad at the same time. happy that the detroit redwings won sad that they held a 4-1 score early in the third period and let the ducks tie them sending the contest into overtime. however just one and one half minute into overtime gustav nyquist of the redwings hits the back of the net sending the series to HOCKEYTOWN tied at one.
detroit has a reputation of going into the final seconds of a contest and allowing opponents to score but this is why i love the game so much tense, exciting, anyone can can win.
the la kings who have been picked by some to repeat are down two games to st louis, the habs, surprising, lost minnesota and chicago resume tonite and i am pulling for the underdog wild and oh yes, a curse on pittsburg that they dont make it to the finals. i am hoping two of the lesser teams make the cup finals as underdogs fighting, shooting, blocking, penalty killing, hugging are so much more fun to watch then those with better standings.
