The refs tucked the whistles into their elastic waist bands, the Ducks kept their elbows down, the Canes were the little Southeast team that could, and I enjoyed every second of it.
Now, that's not to say I wasn't disappointed in how the Ducks / Wings game ended. The NHL.com video is titled "Cleary's Big Push" for a reason. Where was Brad Watson and his intent to blow on that one? Unfortunately, Devorski isn't Brad Watson, and he let it go.
It's a shame Hiller went out like that, face full of disappointment, complete with the Strawberry whine.
Now the Bruins / Canes game was one for the ages, I think. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to catch it, except for the 3rd period, gee golly, Thanks Versus! But, before OT, I was over at the Puck Daddy chat once again, as a panelist no less, and I called it, the Canes were going to take it, at the most inopportune moment. How's with a 1:16 left in the first OT sound?
I like Tim Thomas. I really do. But man, that was mockingly hilarious seeing him fly outta the net after the goal horn sounded. Man up, Tim. And naturally, it had to be probably the most taunted player on the Canes that pots the winner; Scott Walker. Dagger to GBF.
So aside from the fact that last night being was everything we thought Pens/Caps would be, what did you enjoy most?
