Each win that gets us closer to the cup makes me happy.
Going down 3-2 in the series, to Washington, while we were at home and largely outplayed them, would've been crushing. In the blink of an eye we turned it upside down. Now we need to make good on it. But each win that gets us closer, each whisker on my face that gets to grow longer, makes my soul smile just a little more.
On a side note, speaking of beards, I'm thinking if we don't win in 6 (which I hope we do), that the chant to washington during game 7 should be "Grab your ra-zors! hehehe
This one was easily more exciting. The other one was just long. This one was a largely hopeless situation where we couldn't score to save a life and suddenly we get one late in the third and one early in the OT. That was great!
This series just made our rivalry with the Craps legit. I never regarded them as real rivals like the Debbies, for instance. But we've played them in the last 3 playoffs that we've made, and this particular series looks like something from a movie, not real life.
Tonight, AINEC. 3OT was great, but there were long periods of slow play, and plenty of time to mentally prepare myself for whatever the outcome might be. Tonight's game was an emotional timebomb. It went from the lowest of lows to the highest of highs in a couple of seconds. I almost had an aneurysm.
Even though I got home from the CT Whale game with about 3 minutes left in the Rangers game, I voted for tonight's game. Just amazing to see that while still reeling off the AHL club and its dominating performance of the best team in the league.
I'm the first person to vote for the 3OT game solely? I understand this is the most recent game, but I want to make my point.
- This game was a game I thought could have been won in regulation. They had many scoring chances and they had the ability to score, but didn't.
- The emotional high from the goal scored by Richards to me takes away from the fact Staal scored only 2 minutes into OT. I was 100x's more excited when Richards tied it than when we won it.
- The length of the 3OT game makes it that much more instantly satisfying that they won. There were so many ups and downs during the OT's alone that made it awesome they won.
- I yelled louder when Gaborik scored than when Staal/Richards scored tonight. I feel that the Rangers carried momentum from tying it late to get the goal quickly in the OT. The Rangers had to generate so much during the 3OT game that nothing that happened prior to the period had a direct result in winning. the amount of nervous energy built up over the 2 hours of watching resulting in what happened made me not sleep that night. Tonight, I will sleep fine.
