I can relate to that. Actually, though, this feels a lot better than the wretched state of mind I would normally be in under these circumstances. I don't know if it's just a case of being emotionally numbed in the wake of the unthinkable happening or whether I'm truly learning to manage my emotions more effectively. I guess time will tell. In the meantime, I'm enjoying this new experience; it sure beats the alternative.
It's like Doc Emery said during, I think the first OT, this was a very entertaining game to watch, unless you happen to be rooting for one of the teams, then your stomach is in knots.
Subjectively, that was one of the best games I've seen in years. There was a lot of flow, a lot of sustained offensive pressure by both teams, unreal goaltending everything the casual fan could want in a hockey game.
On the other hand, objectively, that is, I don't know where to start.
Vokoun may have played his best game ever.
Maybe Sid should put the jaw guard back on. He hasn't played worth a tinkers damn since he took it off.
Malkin was a beast.
Marchand showed why he is not just a pest, but a good hockey player.
I would rather have picked up Jagr than Iginla. Neither is playing like they did 10 or 15 years ago, but Jagr is contributing.
I know there are only two referrees and 10 skaters on the ice, but jeez, how can so many phantom penalties be called, and so many actual infractions be missed. I think it may have been better when there was only 1 ref.
Clearly Julien knows haw to get his team ready. It seems like the B's know what the Pens were going to do before the Pens did.
I was sitting in D24 the night Eddie Westfall broke our collective hearts, so I know it can happen. GO PENS!!!
