so pittsburg lost, hhhhmmmm. going into the third period they had a commanding 3-1 lead, the redwings too a comfortable lead and well…, losing 4-3 to the underdog New York Islanders and a goal that has been scrutinized by the press. I wonder if pittsburg had made this fortunate goal the media would be all over or just contribute the score to the teams great depth. hey, it’s hockey these type of shots, at times, are deliberate take a look at detroits pavel datsyuk in a game against florida he had the puck behind the panthers net and flipped it over the net intending to bank it in off the goal tenders back! get the puck to the net and good things happen, eh?
unfortunately a couple years ago i downgraded my cable tv to just basic which means no nhl network, no nbc sports network or cnbc and center ice online only airs radio broadcast, talk about control, eh? this is just fine because multi-tasking is now possible but more importantly the theater of the mind starts up!
so the playoffs are heating up and teams that are not suppose to win are and visa-versa, detroit and anaheim tonite at THE JOE in detroit which will be electric with energy! pittsburg resumes tomorrow and therefore the curse!
