It is 2:34am as I am finally home and headed to bed. I had to get a few thoughts in first ... there will be more tomorrow.
WOW ... that was one helluva game ... playoff hockey at its finest! Turco and Nabokov were OUTSTANDING! I cannot wait to watch the game on DVR and hear the call from Ralph and Razor! So much for the blowout ... but who knew Mr. Vezina would show up tonight! I think shots ended up 62-55, San Jose, and hits were an unbelievabe 88-54 Dallas.
Fittingly, Brendan Morrow ended the game with his 7th of the playoffs. He also finished with 19 hits -- 22% of the Dallas' 88 total hits ... UNREAL! The guy is an absolute beast. Tip said it best, these guys believe in themselves and Brendan tells them, 'cmon, get on my back'! Regardless of how the playoffs finish off, Brendan could be given the Conn Smythe trophy today. I'm quite certain that if you looked up the definition of Conn Smythe, you'd see his picture. The Captain is playing out of this world.
Each team took a penalty in the overtimes, so I have no problem with the way we won the game.
MAR-TY, MAR-TY, MAR-TY, MAR-TY, MAR-TY!!!!!
I really hope everyone in the hockey world and the Detroit Red Wings continue to not give Dallas a chance!
