The Blues beat Detroit which is always a good thing, but there are a couple things that really irked me tonight...
-Night Class. I didn't catch the entire game and only saw the last period. I missed the one freaking time that Blues not only beat Detroit, but beat them on national TV!!!
-eric brewer. I didn't capitalize his name because he was very bad. I understand mistakes, but not when a player should know better. In the waning minutes of a one goal game, he made a no-look, through-the-legs pass directly onto the tape of the NHL's leading goal scorer, Henrik Zetterberg!!! It made my blood boil, and it's a good thing that didn't result in a goal. In a divisional game where points are precious, you don't make that kind of boneheaded play.
This kind of play is exactly why I am not a brewer fan. Not that all of his mistakes are of this caliber, but I feel like a veteran player like brewer should know better than to do some of the things that he does. And we wonder why he's a team low -9...
Good things about tonight:
-The Blues won.
-David Perron had two goals. He's a freaking stud. I thought he looked shaky during the first couple of games, and if he wouldn't have gotten better, I'd say send him back to junior. But the last entire game I saw, he was a constant scoring threat, and tonight, he had two goals. Not bad. I'm glad the Blues are keeping him around.
-Jamal Mayers had the game-winning goal. Against the Red Wings. Jamal freaking Mayers not only scored, but scored the game winner. Against Detroit. I had to retype it again just to believe it. Hockey has unlikely heroes. In other news, North Korea disarmed, Brent Johnson stopped a puck, and the Florida Panthers sold out all of their remaining games. I'm going to buy a lottery ticket.
