The day started with Prop 8 getting struck down in Cali.
SUCCKKKKK IT Rick Santorum.
I was driving home from class ramping it up for a visit to the den of evil, Philadelphia.
That’s when my twitter feed blew up. 4 years. 11 Million. Frans Nielsen, a career Islander WILL REMAIN. OUTFUCKINGSTANDING.
Geeked about it. He’s my fave current Isle.
The Isles broke the Flyers streak of utter dominance last time out. This time, I oddly felt good. Even without the Mighty Hammer (Who shall be back from a broken nose in 2 weeks).
Flyers lead the shot battle 10-7. Everything else dead even. Hits, Faceoffs, chances, all that.
The latter 40 saw Reese appear to badly injure his knee. 5 D left. One was Aaron Ness, making his NHL Debut for the injured Hamonic.
The Philadelphia Flyers averaged almost a shot a minute from then on out, by Evgeni Nabokov tapped the goalline with his stick and said NONE SHALL PASS.
45s through the end of O/T.
Shootout time. Frans first.
THE FRESHLY MINTED 11 MILLION DOLLAR DANISH BACKHAND OF JUDGEMENT… SCOREEESSS.
Danny Briere…. TOE SAVE NABBY KOV.
91, THE BEST IN THE WORLD… HOLLA. 2-0 Isles in the skills contest.
Wayne Simmonds MUST score or Its over…
ITS OVER. ISLES WIN.
ISLES REACH .500
HO-HUM. ANOTHER WIN IN PHILLY.
NYI now sit 4. games out with 3 games in hand. Just sayin’.
Isles lock up another core piece at a hometown discount. Shocker.
Garth Snow says “We Take Care Of Our Own.”
One of the best Isles nights in a long time.
Team surging. Shrugging off injury after injury. Fighting, clawing toward the impossible dream.
Finally get back to .500, which like it or not is a measure of respectability in this league.
Locked up one of our home grown beloved guys on the cheap.
Beat a hated rival in their barn…
