First, props to your team for another nail-biter. Has anyone ever seen a defenseman make three saves in a row, first with his stick, then his shin, then his skate? Whoa!
What a treat it is to see two awesome teams go at it in a Game 7 for the Cup. Like I said, I felt this time it would be different, and can anyone now argue otherwise? This is why I said in my original post I wouldn't have it any other way, against any other team in the finals. I knew it had the potential to be this good.
Even if you don't care for the Pens, you have to give them credit. They easily could've folded after Saturday Night's disaster. Instead they buckled down and roared back to grit out a tough win. That goes double for MAF. (By the way, you weren't one of those rather overconfident fans leaving the Joe Saturday Night, telling the Pens fans in attendance "see you next year" were you?)
Marian Hossa is about to become either the smartest man in hockey, or its biggest moron. Again, one game decides it all.
To say the least, you've done a fine job shutting down Crosby. Is this the game he finally breaks out, in the biggest tilt of all?
Just another of the amazing storylines going into Friday Night.
I'll enjoy this for one more day, then into Game 7 mode.
