notes on government, sports and popular culture
.....You don't know how bad I wanted last night's game,
not so much for the Canes but to give myself some shred of credibility following my sweep prediction.
While watching the second period, I was worried the Canes were themselves being caned — coming up against a goalie who refused to anything through. The rushes, the stickwork and the passing were awesome, but Oilers goalie Jussi Markkanen kept making awesome saves. The fear, of course, was that the Oilers would get another bullshit goal like they did in Game 3.
But the stickwork finally prevailed.....ESPN Lindsay Berra breaks down
the winning goal.
