My life has been a little delayed thanks to some sick kids, but I thought I'd share...
I went to the Wild v. Ducks game on Tuesday and it was a blast! So glad they avoided the sweep, that would have sucked major ass.
The game had it all - intensity, scoring, rough stuff. First and second periods were fantastic waiting and waiting for someone to break it open, then when the Wild busted it open in the 3rd and the nasty stuff happened, it was great... until things got ugly.
Brad May threw a cheap-o sucker punch late in the 3rd period, but the NHL took care of that with a 3-game suspension
. It was such a gutless move by May, skating up and punching a guy in the back of the head while everyone was watching the fight at the other end of the ice. Luckily, there was a lineman standing right there who saw the whole thing.
Anyway, it was a blast of a game, I'm glad I went to that one and not last Sunday's loss.
Here's hoping for a game six back at home on Saturday!
