Usually I don't bother sleeping a lot, but with the play-off run of the Boys in Blue, it's getting to me lately. I think from now on, I will sleep early and set my alarm for 1:30 AM, watch the game, get a couple of hours sleep and then head off to work.
Game 3 from the Caps series was the hardest one to get through. Watching a triple-OT game which only ends 15 minutes before I usually get up for work broke my mentally. I only worked 4 hours and had to take the rest of the day off.
I don't mind, because this is a special occasion, but it does take a lot from me in terms of missing out on hours of sleep.
All I want to say to my fellow-Europeans is this:
Hang in there, we have 4 months to recover before the new season starts!
