It wasn’t pretty, but all wins count the same!

Pre-Game Thoughts

  • I started reading Dune the other night, and I’m really hoping this game doesn’t make me regret putting it down.
  • Sees a Joel Edmundson-Shea Weber pairing
  • Well, I hope I am wrong about that pairing, but hoo boy tonight should be fun.
  • Oh and the lines are shuffled, well once more unto the breach dear readers!

First Period

  • That was an utterly horrifying opening two minutes, and somehow no goals were scored.
  • The Jets however, are not as lucky as their turnover ends up in the back of their net courtesy of Jesperi Kotkaniemi!
  • That diving effort by Josh Anderson is just * chefs kiss *
  • Well, that’s certainly a penalty call, of some sort anyway.
  • Brendan Gallagher is most certainly feeling it tonight, he’ll get a goal somehow tonight I bet.
  • Tomas Tatar nearly had a goal of the year, what a swipe and what a chance on net too!
  • Alexander Romanov bodying Nikolaj Ehlers, and then doubling down when Ehlers tries to level the score is amazing from the rookie defender.
  • A late power play to end a decent first period? I’ll take it!

Second Period

  • Corey Perry isn’t quite what he once was, but those hands are still really smooth.
  • I have absolutely no idea how that hit from Logan Stanley isn’t a penalty in some form.
  • That should probably be a penalty shot for Jonathan Drouin, but a power play will do I suppose.
  • I want to know why Pierre-Luc Dubois seems to hate Nick Suzuki.
  • Kyle Connor literally only does one thing well guys, maybe don’t let him shoot uncontested.
  • I looked down for a second and then everyone was angry hugging, can’t say I expected that.
  • Well that’s just annoying
  • Jeff Post-try amirite?
  • Oh my word, what a goal from Tyler Toffoli!

Third Period

  • Alright, strong final 20 minutes guys, we can do this!
  • And by we, I mean you, I am eating chips.
  • Taking a penalty is not what I meant fellas.
  • We went over this earlier guys, come on now!
  • If I were Ehlers I would probably stop trying to out-muscle Romanov, because it’s not going well for the Dane.
  • If the last five minutes wanted to be over now that would be great!
  • See guys, when you leave your own end of the ice good things can happen.
  • Somehow the camera lost Toffoli who ended up with the empty net goal.
  • I like wins, wins are fun!
