DETROIT RED WINGS 4 - 3 MINNESOTA WILD (SO)
Busy day on my end so this will be short. (I .... uh..... have homework? Yeah homework.)
It's good that I'm busy because I'd like to forget this game anyway. Not because they played terribly, but because it was the prototypical "puck luck" game. Too stressful to enjoy. The shots ended up nearly even, but the quality chances weren't; the Wings had a handful of breakaways, including a missed 2-on-0. #44 had two breakaways (one he buried, the other he fell asleep halfway through).
The Wild scored off a blind alley-oop to somebody's chest, a scramble in front where the puck went off a skate, and another in which the puck went 20 feet in the air, the Wings' D lost sight of the puck, the dude catches it/sets it down and scores to tie the game at 3 and sent it to overtime. Ridiculous game to watch.
And then you had The Gimmick, in which the Wings finally ended it on their 7th or 8th opportunity to win the thing. Drew Miller is now Jimmy's running mate for President of Space.
Let's get the hell out of Minnesota and wait for the Kings on Saturday. (<---- BIG GAME)
