2009 Play Offs: Day Ten
Only one game was played today and it was severely depressing. The (7) New York Rangers couldn't close the deal against the (2) Washington Capitals and averaged about eight penalties a period.
Henrik Lundqvist can only take you so far, ladies. We may have to remind his team of that tiny little fact.
Our favorite part about Ovechkin's "highlight reel" goal was the announcer (forgive us because we forget who it was) and his "woop, woop, woop" when Ovechkin deked around the defenseman. He was so desperate to make the highlight reel with Ovechkin that he sounded like a moron.
Tomorrow are three series that have us extremely excited.
The Penguins are playing Game 6 against the Flyers. We are turning to superstitions at this point. Henrik has to wear her Jeff Carter Flyers t-shirt and Noodles has to leave the room when "What You Missed" comes on. And that's just the beginning of our weird superstitions.
Then, the Blackhawks are playing host to the Flames for Game 5. If they win or lose, we will find out via text message again while dancing with other sweaty people. Should be good times.
And the last game is Ducks at Sharks for Game 5. Noodles is the only one of us who is not so secretly cheering for the Ducks. Everyone else loves Dan Boyle and Torrey Mitchell and Patrick Marleau so they're all Sharks fans.
Let's do this.
