First of all, congrats to flanneryflyer, vivelegardien on the Flyers winning the series. This was an awesome series, it should have been the ECF though. :P If the Leafs had to lose, then I'm glad they lost to a good team like that, and ... wah!!! *clings to Leafs*
After that, I was sad and I thought both my teams were going to lose. Couldn't have been more wrong.
I picked 7 out of 8 of the Round 1 winners, including the two big upsets in the West. It's not as if I was just blindly rooting for the underdog or anything, I didn't particularly like the Wild before the series. I just thought their style of play was gonna beat the Avs, and I thought it did throughout the series except that Roy single-handedly won three games, pretty much. I'm really impressed they came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the series though, shows a lot of tenacity.
Canucks!!! *leaps into frala's arms* Guess the band of love worked? :) *heart swells with love and joy* Coming back 3-1 in thisseries was an even bigger battle. I'm so glad they got the chance to prove that they wouldn't just roll over and die, that Cloutier showed what a great goalie he is, that Natuzzison got to bust out. And I hope the media stop harping on Nazzy's "we choked" comment. But yeah, I'm so happy for them, makes the Leafs' loss a little less painful. *sniffle*
Was hoping for another Natuzzison natural hat trick when Nazzy scored right after Mo, but it was a Naslinson natural hat trick instead, which is fine by me! :)
This lack of sleep thing is really getting to me. Last night Chip kept bugging me and talking to me even though I kept telling him to go away (well to his side of the bed :P) and finally I just burst into tears and started wailing about how I've been exhausted for over a week and it's horrible, blah blah blah, thus proving that the lack of sleep has been getting to me. ;) Eep!
