Team USA defeated Germany today 8-2. Woooooooooooo!!! Sanborn native and Red Wings prospect Thomas McCollum made 16 saves in the win. Yay!

I vegged out at my sister's house with her cat while she's out of town. I'm nursing a bit of a cold, so I'm sniffling over here by myself with Maximus the cat.

I couldn't focus too intently on the game because of my cold medicine-induced haze.

I just about shrieked when they showed Paille basically pulling Vanek off the ice and onto the bench after he was hit in the leg by Ovechkin's slap shot. I was pretty sure his career was over... then he came back in the 3rd and scored a goal... ok then, apparently he bounced back? I wouldn't be surprised if he might miss a game after that.

That Ovechkin goal was pretty slick, I hate to admit. It was a combination of Ovechkin being slick and Tallinder being completely unable to handle knocking the puck off of his stick. That was a little embarrassing, Hank.

If I had to pick one word to describe this game it would be "scrambly". There was very little in the ways of playing as a 5 man unit. They all just seemed to be shoveling the puck in the zone and on net. For every frenzied shift in the Caps zone there was one in the Sabres zone, and back and forth and lots of scrambling.

To be honest, this game was so boring, I found playing Wii Tennis was way more fun than watching the first 2 periods of that game. On the plus side, I'm much better at Wii Tennis than I was before tonight.

I just might be better at Wii Tennis than the Sabres are at hockey.


  1. I was pretty sure his career was over...


  2. I was pretty sure his career was over...

    My heart did NOT enjoy seeing him getting pulled onto the bench. ); I was so worried!
