meh, that's fine
On the one hand, they did that without DeBrusk and Nosek and McAvoy sitting a spell in the third.

On the other hand, just about everything about the time between the Zacha and Hedman goals was just sloppy. Maybe it’s a good teaching moment, because the next time they do that on this trip will be their next loss.

Ran out of gas in the third, which is rare for them. Gotta wonder if the schedule is catching up to them a bit.


off putting, to say the least

I had to laugh about the Carlo stuff, especially after he took out Ullmark playing neither man on a 2-1. Almost feel like it’s my fault.

Well it was a good experience being at the game, despite the shit result. Decent seats, up high but center, about 10-12 rows straight down from the broadcast booths. Looked back a couple times and glimpsed Jack and Brick plying their trade. The worst part was having to endure all the pink-hatty Lightning fans I was surrounded by whoop it up like they won the Cup when the final horn sounded. These people are a lot like the Rays fans I've experienced at Tropicana Field, i.e.dumbasses. All game with the incessant "Nice stick, Pointer!" type of crap. Also slavishly bellowing whatever stupid chant/song that the electronic scoreboard was exhorting them to recite at the moment. The senior-aged couple next to me were among the worst in this regard and if I could have gotten away with strangling them I might well have done so. I conversed briefly with the wife, who had a very nice folded blanket draped over her lap the entire game. She revealed that they were from Michigan and and had recently retired and moved to Florida. I was tempted to ask, "So... not Red Wings fans, then?" but decided not to since she seemed like a nice lady. People who change their sports allegiances when they move piss me off and the conversation would probably not have ended well.
