Like the Inside of a Krispy Kreme Donut…
That’s what a 3-0 home ice victory over the New Jersey Dingleberries is: sweet.
Uptempo, tight offensive play? Sweet.
Ferocious puck control and domination in both the defensive and offensive zones? Sweet.
Avery letting David Clarkson pull him to the ice twice and throw him around like a ragdoll so Clarkson will get himself thrown out of the game? Sweet.
Scott Gomez actually showing up for a change and playing like a $7.5 million superstar? SWEET.
Henrik pitching a shutout while Fatosaurous-Rex gets mocked by 18,200 people? Sweeter than fresh blueberry pie.*
Last night’s game was a great one. There’s 5 games left in the season for our boys, and if they can keep playing the way they played last night, I’m got nothing but good feelings going into the playoffs. But, if they go back to being sucky-ass meatwads again and blow their playoff chances, well then I don’t think I have to tell you how much that sucks.
This is a good team, hell, this is a great team. When they want to be. Here’s hoping they keep wanting to be a great team, and go barreling into the post season, and then kick some ass when they get there.
