500 club

When Brodeur went out this season, I thought, "I don't want to lose to his backups - that would be too embarassing!" But now that it's happened, and in the most embarassing way possible I'm so happy Brodeur wasn't in net. The only good thing about Friday's game was that it wasn't Brodeur's win. That said I'm just trying to forget that game altogether.

Saturday's effort definitely helped. Although we allowed the Canes to tie it up twice the Rangers' effort was so significantly better that you can't really fault it. And the shootout was a beauty - 5 rounds - one goal- and stunning play by Drury skating in on one foot and roofing a backhand from the side of the net. And even though you could see Henrik praying for a win, you could not see his nerves, especially in the shootout where he blanked all 5 snipers. Plus Blair Betts scored off a nifty breakaway pass from my good friend Freddie. Thank you Betts. Remember that awesome end-to-emd goal you scored out west 2 seasons ago? Let's do that again in this 3 game trip to CA!
