Then, one day, he was suddenly sent to the press box. We've been awesome since around that point of the year, right?
That pretty much sums it up right there. Ossi was playing just fine for us on the top pair with Kimmo, when we had those 4/5/6 game win streaks earlier in the season. Then he leaves the ice for the press box and was subsequently waived. Then we didn't have one long streak of wins the rest of the season. Coincidence? I dunno..
