Wow, what an emotionally exhausting game against the Yotes last night. We scored first, and the score went 1-0, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-2, 3-3, 4-3, 4-4, with the tying goal coming with less than 5 minutes left in the game. But Preissing won it in OT! *cheers* We'd played Phoenix 4 times before this season and never won, so that made the win yet more satisfying.
Patty is really wonderful on the point on the PP, although I wish we had a defenseman who could do what he does. I lust for Bryan McCabe when I watch Leafs games.
I'm glad that hockey has a low profile around here, because the Sharks can do things like sign Nabby to a big contract and then sit him out for 3 games and play Toskala. Even though they seem contradictory, I like both moves! I wish we could have gotten Nabby for less, but if that's what it takes to keep him, then so be it.
While he's had some craptacular games, I've seen him play enough that I can trust him in the long run? I've seen the "hot new goalie" for various teams have an awesome start, then flame out and never get it back. Every goalie, no matter how mediocre, can have a hot streak. I can trust Nabby in the playoffs. I wonder if we'll make it this season. Going in as a low seed would be interesting...
