Hey, I thought the title was appropriate with all the ‘mass murder’ and ‘getting away with murder’ comments going on…We’ve got the first game seven of the Stanley Cup playoffs coming up, after Buffalo came up short in game six. I didn’t get to watch game five or six, being on the road or busy with family/Easter obligations, so no in depth discussion of what an asshole Mike Richards is. Everybody knows, now. I feel for Tim Connolly’s gray matter, and am thrilled to hear “That’s great, Derek” Roy might be back.
The Sabres should have some advantages here, though whether they’d agree or not, I’m not sure. Philly is ‘supposed’ to win as they are the 2 and Buffalo is the 7. This season is a success no matter how you slice it, going from basement to playoffs, giving a high seed a run for their money (and maybe eliminating them!), and getting an owner with deep pockets and a deeper commitment to winning. They had young players stepping in and stepping up, showing a brighter future there also. These guys should just roll out there in Philly on Tuesday and have fun. I want to see Myers with that grin on his face he had after games last year, the “holy crap, I do this for a living? AWESOME” look. I want the Goose that dumps Briere on his ass at the faceoff dot. I want the Gerbe who will slam into the bigger Flyers.
I will be watching Tuesday, but my stress level is such that I may not be able to keep the game on the whole time if it’s close. I hope to catch up with things a bit more in depth tonight, if I don’t fall asleep as soon as the kids do.
