I’m pissed off about the whole goddamned thing.
As a Lightning fan: What the fuck? Defending Stanley Cup Champions can’t beat the Caps? Are you kidding me? The Two Vinnies got goals in the first period… then… (crickets chirping). Sure, Lecavalier got one past Olie in the shootout, but the game shouldn’t have gotten there. Richards and St. Louis can’t score during the game; why would anyone think that having them take penalty shots in the shootout would turn out any different? I’m disgusted.
As a Capitals fan: It’s good to see Dainius Zubrus get back to form. It’s good to see Alex Ovechkin get yet another point on his way to the Calder Trophy. That kid has a point in every game so far; he’s the real deal. It’s fucking horrific to witness Olaf Kolzig getting passed over for first star of the game. Olie had 38 saves on the night and was the only reason shit got to overtime, much less a shootout. Petr Sykora gets first star of the game for scoring after Lecavalier and Ovechkin in the shootout? Fuck that; Kolzig won the game for the Caps.
As an Outside Observer: The whole game was like watching two goalies and ten monkeys trying to fuck 7 footballs on ice.
