Apparently I can’t easily actively follow four teams at once. Really.
It started off okay with the Petes and the Caps on the radio and TV at 7.
Then the Habs and the Voltigeurs came on at 7:30.
Then I lost my mind because I didn’t just turn off the Caps and the Petes. I kept switching back in-between periods.
At one point someone walked in and asked me the score. My response? “Habs up 1-0, Caps up 4-1 on a goal by Pie (danm, now I want the pie you can eat), Voltigeurs failing epically (well, no, not epically. They know now to fail epically for real but this isn’t pretty either), Petes only down a goal now as opposed to two, Niagara losing…… wait… one sec…. hang on…. damnit, load you stupid OHL site! Okay! They are losing… 1-0… no.. 2-0… no, 2-1”.
All this is to say… Don’t ask for any great insights into the games.
Let’s deal with these teams in order of least faily-ness.
Caps win 5-2
I think I hate the Sens almost as much as I hate the Leafs. Thus, seeing the Caps score 5 goals (and I did see most of them) was beautiful. Pie had two nice goals, Ovie finally scored on his third or whatever breakaway. Leclaire decided to put on a clinic on how to play your angles. Thanks Leclaire. I appreciate the demonstration actually.
Habs win 2-0
Of course right when I write up the generic writeup they switch it up a bit. They didn’t get outshot, they didn’t spend hours in the penalty box, they didn’t blow the lead…. They weren’t playing inspiring and exciting hockey either though. Whatever. Poo scored in the first period and the boys hung on to the lead until Gio put the puck into the empty net. Okay, Poo, so you’re an upgrade over the French Marshmallow. So maybe… just maybe… we need to consider a new name for you. Maybe. Anyone got any ideas on what we should be dubbing Poo now?
IceDogs win 4-2
Petes lose 6-3
Booooo. It wasn’t pretty….. losing 6-3 at home makes it even uglier. D: I actually missed most of the third period because the radio died. The feed was fine but the radio died. Wonderful.
Voltigeurs lose 5-1
Well… at least they weren’t at home? By the end the Drummondville guys were like “Where’s Jake Allen?”. Ouch………………… at least Dumont scored? And was sitting in the box for the go ahead goal…………. GUH.
