Why would I try to skate through that or try to dump and chase, something my small forwards can't do well? After seeing that you still weren't coming after me at all, I just stood there right inside my blue line, waiting for you to do something. Neither of us blinked, so after about 5 minutes of game time, I just took the puck up the ice and tried to work the dump and chase. I didn't even do it after I took the 1-0 lead. It only happened during the very beginning of the game.

I agree the 3rd period was a blast.
Disagree with the details, agree with the basics. You won the face-off, I got ready to defend. You sat there with the puck.

We both got a garbage goal, and I missed too many one-times in the slot. You deserved the win, but it wasn't much fun--and I generally relish my (numerous) losses.
