Because you may never see this side of Brad Richards again. Ever. I found it completely endearing, and I honestly went, “Aww, B-Rad!” during his tirade, in which I’m pretty sure he dropped a few f-bombs. 🙂 But I found it all very sweet. I’m so proud of him!
And I really effing hate Todd Bertuzzi. The fact that he scored two goals makes me sick to my stomach. He’s such a dirty asshole that I was screaming at my TV. B-Rad only took his penalty in retaliation for when Bertuzzo shoved him. The call on B-Rad was an awful one, especially since Bertuzzi probably dove a little on that.
But whatevs. WE WON THE GAME! In regulation, too! And Karlis Skrastins, of all people, played sniper for two goals. It was pretty much amazing.
It was a rather sloppy game on our goalie’s part, but who cares? WE WON. My motto is this: A win is a win, no matter how sloppy.
My Three Stars:
1. Brad Richards- I had to give it to him after that great tantrum he threw. Plus, he had a really good game today.
2. Karlis Skrastins- He had three points today, which is a huge total for him. He played great.
3. Pavel Datsyuk- I’d give it to Bertuzzi, except he exhibited douch-baggy behavior at the end to B-Rad and I’ve never liked him. I like Datsyuk, though. He’s hilarious and he had a good game.
Next Up: Monday vs. San Jose. See you there!
