Monday's Playoff Results


Detroit Red Wings  3, Pittsburgh Penguins 4 (Pens win in the 3rd OT.  Wings lead the series 3 - 2)

Wings' goals: Helm, Datsyuk, and Rafalski

Pens' goals: Hossa, Hall, Talbot, and Sykora

Octopi count: 5

This was the fifth longest game in Stanley Cup Finals history.

Once again, the reffing SUCKED, including a phantom tripping call on Datsyuk in the 1st period (the dude freakin' fell down on his own!) and two bullshit "goalie interference" calls on the Wings in OT.  Even the commentators thought those calls were ridiculous!

Fleury is the reason why the Pens are still in this thing.  He played his ass off once again, facing  58 shots.  Both he and Ozzie (who faced 32 shots) came up with some phenomenal saves; although I'm sure Ozzie never expected to have to try to make a save on his own teammate.  *shoots Death!Glare at Kronwall*

Check of the Game goes to Penguins' forward Hall (I think), who managed to knock one of the zebras on his ass.  W00T!!!!

I have to point out this minute-by-minute blog over at NHL.com.  I've been reading the last couple of these and this person is pretty damn funny.

Oh Rap! I'm so sorry to hear that. Maybe they just want to give you one last chance to see them play this season . . .?

Rap, I'm sorry. I'm sure your guys will come through for you tomorrow. (Although, I might play down Stevie-baby plans. Ozzie might get jealous and force you to choose.)

That sucks, Rap.

I happened to see the winning goal and I knew you'd be bummed.

I think I jinxed the game *hangs head*

I was just in the process of typing out on my most recent post last night that I was watching the Wings win the game/Cup when the Pens scored. I had to backspace and retype. I was soooo upset.

That was a nailbiter of a game. Sooo depressing.

When I came into work this morning, my co-irker (the one I want to bitch-slap) & my dungeon-mate were waiting for me. We stood around & discussed the game & my fellow cellar-dweller says "Gosh, you seem to be in a pretty good mood, considering". Yeah, it's from lack of sleep, m'kay?!

Also? I get this email from my cousin this morning: Do you guys STILL think that the Red Wings wouldn't be better off with a world-class goalie instead of an adequate one? You don't think that we'd have the Stanley Cup right now if we didn't have someone who let in soft goals with 30 seconds left in the game? Or a really soft one in OT?
I stand by original claim - he's fine. But if he weren't here we could bring in someone young who could develop into the next, you know, Kiprusoff, Giguere, or yes, even Fleury. And now we have to go back to Pittsburgh? I give us eh... about 25% chance to win this thing now.

Yeah...I don't think I'll be speaking to him for a looong time. All I know is that Ozzie has given us the best chance of winning the Cup & if we had stuck with Hasuck, we'd have lost out to Nashville in the first round.

*giggles* *slaps self for giggling* :D I'm sorry, honey! People (present company excluded) suck sometimes!!! I'm cheering for you and Stevie though, so I'm praying that your boys puhLEASE put this thing to bed tomorrow night!

Reason #178 why my best friend is my best friend:
Me: "Is it okay if we watch the hockey game tonight?"
BF (who is not particularly into hockey): "Of course!"
