TGIF? No, I have class at 8am tomorrow.

by Anne


This whole having to be somewhere by 8:00 a.m. business is just not working out for me. It is true that one day 8:00am will be the norm or maybe even late for me as a teacher, but coming off of a six week winter break where I stayed up until 2:30 - 3:00 on average and slept until 11:00, being out of the house by 7:30 is no joke.

I've started rehearsing a show this week so while I was able to attend the game on Wednesday. (WOOOO!!! YOYOOOO!) but I was unable to watch the Kings game on Thursday.

The game on Wednesday was equal parts moderately fun and godawful mindnumbingly boring. The most exciting part of regulation was when Jamie Langenbrunner threw a hissy fit over his penalty for running over Miller in the crease. Overtime was exciting as was the mercifully short shootout. We so rarely win shootouts that this one was nothing short of a miracle.

It was close and low scoring as was to be expected when Miller and Brodeur duke it out. 

THEN on Thursday, the Kings rolled into Columbus. I wasn't able to watch any of the game but I gathered that the beginning of the game was not going well. Fortunately, the Kings were able to score first and didn't look back.

Oh who scored that goal?


I'm trying not to take it personally that he's scored both his goals this season while I was not watching.

Let's be honest, the only reason he scored that goal was Frolov's fantastic pass to him aaaaaaaaall alone on the point and when he shot the puck he had a preeeeetty much totally clear shot at the net.

Dare we hope for a third goal this season? He has TWO multigoal season IN A ROW. Rarely accomplished. Also, he has a TWO GAME point streak going. Don't call it a comeback.

No, really, don't call it a comeback, it's not a comeback at all. Not even close.

Tonight the Sabres host the Bruins. Pie!!

No Danny, use the STICK

7:30 puck drop tonight
