After that Pens/Sens game, anything’s gotta be better, right?

First Period

  • That’s the first time in a long time that I’ve seen a starting faceoff have to be redone!
  • Oh no...let Gibby be ok, please...
  • What a rush by Montour!
  • GOOD LORD RYAN JOHANSEN.
  • Boy is this game far, far, far more entertaining than the Pens game. All speed up and down the ice right now.
  • Have I mentioned how much I’ve missed watching P.K. spin around the offensive zone? Because it’s a thing of beauty.
  • Hey, Ducks, you might want to have more than one shot on net...
  • Oh dear. Gibby.
  • Dear Anaheim, PLEASE STOP TAKING PENALTIES.
  • Oooh, that was a nifty little move by Kase! And it drew a power play!
  • Not sure how much that’s going to help given how bad the power play is though...
  • I TAKE IT BACK. THE VATMAN!!!!

Second Period

  • OH MY SILFVERBERG!
  • Tie game just 39 seconds in. Oh boy that was a beautiful bit of passing.
  • Anaheim definitely building off of their play at the end of the first period.
  • AAAAHHHH!!! POST!!!! Gibby should definitely be thanking that one.
  • Agreed, Mr. Announcer Man, Kase has had a pretty great game so far.
  • Oh man. Kes was so close there.
  • The pace to this game is absolutely incredible.
  • Oh lord.
  • Anaheim, what was that.
  • KASE. OH MY GOODNESS.
  • What is goaltending in this game?
  • This game is the polar opposite of last night’s. Fast, furious, vastly entertaining.
  • Wow. What. A. Shot. But also...oh dear...Pekka Rinne...

Third Period

  • Ahhh, the patent P.K. slapper. What a thing of beauty.
  • Oh jeez, that was a nasty elbow from Kesler.
  • I want to see Getzlaf live more than I want to see just about anyone but Crosby, and perhaps Ovechkin.
  • Did you know that ice is slippery?
  • Every time they mention Yannick Weber, I get very confused. Because my brain apparently still associates Shea Weber with Nashville, even after a full year.
  • AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH. Wow. That was some insane shot blocking from Anaheim. Dear lord. What a mad scramble.
  • Gibson has definitely been better as the game progressed. Though...given how bad things were earlier, that might not be saying a whole lot.
  • Please stop icing the puck, Anaheim.
  • AHHH NASHVILLE PULLS RINNE. WE’RE DOWN TO THE WIRE.
  • EMPTY NET GOAL VERMETTE!
  • ANAHEIM WINS 5-3!!
  • Boy was that fun. The Ducks remain the kings of the comeback.
