That was far from a horrible game FX-7!  One of the best ones I have ever seen, beside the '01 Gophers Championship and the Elk River High School class of '93 State Tournament games :P

Ok, this is getting ridiculous.  I need sleep.  I have an accursed West Nile meeting tomorrow.  4th longest playoff game in history, right now.  

Turco's playing pretty well too.

That game was absolutely unbelievable...   :o  I'm so glad I had the chance to watch that - it really renewed my hockey spirit!  I got home when the first OT started, and just kept watching, and watching, and watching...  Even neglected the (pathetic) Laker game in favor of my favorite quackers.  Nothing like sudden death playoff hockey.  None of this girly tie crap like in the regular season.  That was a double header + 1!  Riveting, edge of your seat action, for what... 81 minutes?  Regardless of who wound up winning, that was just amazing...  Giguere is THE MAN.

I was close to bashing in my TV screen when they called the Ducks seemingly game winning shot off.  That was a totally weak call.  The puck was clearly over the line before the net (BARELY) came dislodged.  Glad that didn't cost us the game, or you would've never heard the end of my referee potty mouth talk...

These Ducks are just like the Angels, who play just a couple hundred yards away.  Scrappy guys, fun to watch, who just never say die.  It would be the most amazing thing in the world to have both of the Anaheim teams win it all in the same year, let alone in the same millenium.  But I'm probably getting a little ahead of myself here...  I'll settle for an amazing game 1 victory on Dallas' home ice for now...

BTW, my die-hard sports fan wife's expert analysis on the sport of hockey goes like this:

It's a lame sport and not even very hard.  All they do is skate around in circles and "whack the puck".    Uh, OK...   :-[

I saw Dallas tie it up and then fell asleep before OT started (around 10:30EST).  From the sound of it, the game seemed similar to the Flyers - Pens 5OT game a few years ago, which I did stay up to watch.  Truely an amazing game.

I love playoff hockey.

Flyers - Senators tonight.  Should be a good game.

And the Wild-Canucks, looks like I should have stayed up too, although the T-Pups/Lakers tilt didn't end until 1:30 AM locally...almost as good as Tuesday night when the Wild and Wolves won in the wee hours of the morning.

I still cannot figure out why they don't start these games at 6:30-7:00 Pacific meaning 9:30-10:00 Eastern.  I would think East Coaster would still watch let alone fly over land!

Well, those Minnesota boys just keep at it.  3-2 win over the Canucks tonight to tie it up.  Looks to be a very nasty series.  

Last shot of the game, Vancouver net empty, player skating in for a slapshot on the left wing and man, if he didn't look more occupied with running the MInnesota player than firing the shot, I'll be a monkey's uncle.  Really weird too.  Last shot, down by a goal, couple of seconds and you want to hit somebody?  Chippy, scrappy, going to get just plain ugly.  

7 game series?

The amazing Ducks just keep rolling along.  6-0 now, including 4 OT victories - all over 100+ point teams!  Very nice run so far, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high just yet...

Will Disney get another miracle before it ditches it's two pro sports franchises?  I sure hope so!

Well, the Ducks amazing roll just keeps right on going...  Up 3-1 in the series now.  Still very surprising, to say the least!   8)

At some point, I'm going to cave in and start getting really excited and getting my hopes up for the Cup!  Hopefully the Wild can even their series up tonight.  Though I'd hate to have my teams wind up eliminating both of Scott's teams in just a matter of weeks really...   :P
