Hey, I got back from the game about an hour ago. The arena was about 1/3 empty! Ive never seen so many empty seats at The Joe. I checked the box score and the paid attendance was 18,177, but I wouldn't be surprised if 14,000 showed up. I didn't mind, the concessions lines were fast, it only took a couple minutes to get a hot dog and it was easy to move down to better seats.
Great bounce back game by Ozzie. Nice second goal by Datsyuk, only Dats could score that goal!
I should add, nice goal by Homer too. Classic Holmstrom! I had my Holmstrom jersey on and when he scored I was pointing to his name on the back of it, and stood up to point at it again when his name was announced over the PA. Fun times!
I remember how you guys cried and complained about how dirty it was when Cooke murdered Savard. Now that your dirty a$$ player hit someone you immediately pretend like it wasn't a shoulder. I'm not saying it was ---- Just saying --- Your guys double standards are entertaining to say the least.
Anyway ---- Gunna be fun to see the rubber match this year.
I'm really starting to think there's a problem with the Canadian players in the league. There seems to be a generation of poor sports, cry babies, and cheap shot artists towards the Europeans, lead by Iginla, Crosby, Thornton, Getzlaf, and Perry. Almost like it's a Canadian vs. European mindset. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the stuff Don Cherry says on Hockey Night in Canada?
