Huge game tonight, I'm hoping to see the same effort tonight as in Dallas. Hopefully we're better rested. While the turnovers were embarrassing, and almost comical, at times, I thought they simply came from a very tired team. The usual failing students of Hockey 101: Harts, Carts, Coby, and Carle all did their homework and played very well defensively. What can you say about Boosh? Guy played his heart out and looked very calm and solid back there.
Losing Leighton might be the rallying point this team has needed all season. Are we contenders? Of course not but the East is ridiculously weak this year and we all know there's a couple of key injuries yet to happen to other teams. Pride is truly a double edged sword but in this case, I see it as the great motivator for Boucher. He's got the opportunity to rewrite, what is otherwise, a mediocre and underwhelming story and career.
The sad fact is that you never quite prepare yourself for life's failures and its overall cruelty but somewhere inside of you, hidden, is the dream of happy endings and fulfilled destinies. Make me a believer again.
