Exactly. That's not "defending Howson," it's supporting fairness and logic. POH is right about which record looks better, but change it to reflect ROW and it's a different story. Howson only suggested the change (after a year in which the CBJ would have benefitted from it, by the way), it was passed by the league because everyone knew that the shootout is a rediculous way to resolve games.
Back on topic: Epic win, can't wait to be there on Saturday! Wife and I have our Backstage Pass for the finale and I can't imagine what the scene down below will be if a playoff spot is clinched. Maybe we'll be drenched in beer! Maybe we will be, by then, anyway!
