Scary Good

Excuse the Halloween pun, even though it was totally intended.  Anyhoo, what a fantastic game! I only saw the second period on, but I liked what I saw. 

Special teams dominated, which is nice because they usually don’t.  The Stars started off the scoring with a 5-on-3 goal in the first, and ultimately went 2-for-6 on the PP.  Add a shortie to that, and you have a special-teams dominated score. 

Also surprising was the fact that Trevor Daley of all people scored a goal.  It was mildly crazy.  Of course, Daley would score on a night we didn’t really need the goal, but whatevs.  I’m not complaining; 4-0 is a nice score.

And how about Andrew Raycroft?  I’ll admit that I’ve been worried about our backup situation ever since Raycroft had a…uhm…sucky preseason start.  He sure didn’t show that last night.  Then again, the Sabres are a very troubled team, so that might have been an easy one to pull off.

Whatever, though.  I’ll take it.  A win is a win, no matter what the circumstances surrounding it are.

Next up: Wednesday against the (BLECH) Penguins.

Make it happen

Remembering A Decade Ago…

Last night and early this morning was the ten-year anniversary of Dallas’ Stanley Cup.  I was only five at the time, so I don’t remember much.  All I do remember is my dad jumping and yelling out of happiness.  I didn’t get why he was so happy, but now I do.  More than anything, I want to see Dallas win the Cup again.  It would mean the world to me to watch them win it and actually remember something. I want that feeling of knowing that my team won the championship.  I’m sure that’s there’s no other feeling in the world quite like it…

Besides, wouldn’t one final Stanley Cup be the perfect end to the careers of Mo, Lehts, and Zubie?  ‘Nuff said…

But let's not win it in such a controversial way next time...or we can just to rub it in Buffalo fans faces again ;)
