Just watched the highlights on NHL.com.
The Ducks get three goals with the net empty in the last 3:16 to tie the game and then win it in the second OT. Tying goal was allowed after extensive review for possible goaltender interference in a huge pileup in from of the Edmonton net. Anaheim had huge shot advantage, 64-38, which made me think of Pats’ comeback and their ToP dominance in 51.
Have to say, though, that McDavid is amazing. He scored the Oilers’ second goal and set up their third. In the goal he scored, he was standing to the left of the goalie while the puck was in the corner and his stick was up off the ice. I was wondering why it wasn’t on the ice for a possible deflection or tip-in. Then his wing, Letestu, flings the puck from the corner in front of the goal about two feet off the ice, and McDavid, with his stick in the perfect position, tips it into the goal. Unbelievable.May 6, 2017 at 12:10 pm #99497

You know you’re vertically challenged when Bob Costas towers over you.

Since it’s been quiet today, I’ll share a story that probably belongs in Minor Gripes or kept to myself:
Thursday night, my son had a little league game. After being there a couple of hours, I decided to take my daughter to the snack bar. It’s your standard snack building, with a big window/counter for ordering and serving. As we’re walking up, there are 2 guys taking up about 1/2 the counter, talking. Just before we get to the counter, a 10 year old kid and a guy carrying his daughter race in front of us and take up the rest of the counter space. Then, they all proceed to do nothing but talk, except the kid, who stood there for a minute silently and then left. The guy carrying his daughter turns out to be the husband or boyfriend of one of the women working in the snack bar. He may have had something to tell the girl’s mom, but it was nothing pressing, like a medical emergency, that he had jump in front of 2 people who were going to spend 30 seconds ordering and paying. There was plenty of room further down the building or at a nearby picnic table for the 2 guys there before to have their conversation out of everyone’s way. We ended up waiting a few minutes before ordering, which isn’t long, but all of these people seemed oblivious that other people might want to order something from the snack bar.
I should have spoken up, but at the moment, all I could think of was a sarcastic “Thanks for jumping in front of us” or “Are you just going to talk?” instead of a more disarming “Are you in line?” The kicker was we ordered a pretzel and were told it would take about 10 minutes for one to be ready. Inconsiderate people or not we were going to wait 😆May 7, 2017 at 4:18 pm #99515May 7, 2017 at 4:59 pm #99516May 7, 2017 at 5:26 pm #99517
Do we think the Celts win tonight?
Seems like a good start is imperative. I can’t see them clawing back from deep deficits again.May 7, 2017 at 5:27 pm #99518May 7, 2017 at 6:37 pm #99519May 7, 2017 at 8:08 pm #99521May 7, 2017 at 8:10 pm #99522May 7, 2017 at 8:22 pm #99523May 7, 2017 at 8:40 pm #99524
