I'm in Pittsburgh listening to the 3rd period online, and Kenny/Dave just said the Blackhawks got their fifth 5-3 powerplay of the game!
Then Dave Maloney, who I love by the way, goes into the refs hardcore saying they are jokes. Referees are jokes in the NHL. Think a great league like this could get some guys that know the game! He was really animated. Wow.
Hardcore stuff. I love that he has the guts to say things how they are. Too few people do.
Now, again, I wish I could see this. Apparently Coach Renney showed a pulse on the bench? He's capable of that? I have only seen that once or twice before, and barely to the magnitude this sounds like it was.
Good thing I tivoed the game, although apparently the broadcast is rather crappy on MSG alternate.
In looking at the game summary:
Girardi fought - again?
Staal got a 10 minute misconduct - for what?
Prucha got time on the PP - did Renney confuse the 3 and the 5 on the jerseys?
And now there are pigeons in United Center? Oh boy.
Now to OT...
And Drury scores...
On the Powerplay?
Dave Maloney: "Grittiest game of the season for the Rangers."
I repeat. Yikes.
I won't be able to give any real opinion on this game until I see it, if I even get a chance to watch the game on Tivo sometime next week, so this is the best I'm going to do. Random stream of consciousness in-game.
I should listen to games on radio more often. Kenny/Dave are an enjoyable combo and an interesting change of pace for sure.
Oh but before I go, watched the Pens/Ducks game because, well, that's the game of choice out here. Both teams moved the puck well. Some scrappy stuff. And a hilarious wrestling match involving Corey Perry and Evgeni Malkin at the end of the game. I can't wait to see Bobby Ryan on Tuesday for Anaheim.
Okay wait. . . Kenny/Dave just said that Drury had two goals tonight and now leads the team in goals.
I am going to take an Advil and go to bed after hearding that.
