First off, we'll get to the music series tomorrow night. Johnny got back from the Devils game later than planned.
Speaking of the Devils, they won their 8th straight game tonight, beating the stinky Penguins 4-3 in overtime. Jamie Langenbrunner scored the tying goal with 31 seconds left and got the winner with exactly one minute left in overtime. The Devils captain also had the OT winner in Boston last night. One of Johnny's old faves Brendan Shanahan had a goal and an assist. Johnny didn't see this mentioned yet on TSN or ESPN but something was wrong with Cindy Crosby. He only saw the ice for MAYBE 15 seconds in overtime. Twice he went out to try a shift and immediately tuned back to the bench. His ovaries must be acting up (in all fairness he has a bad knee, not sure if this was why he couldn't go in OT). Speaking of floaters, good GOD is Evgeni Malkin a whiner and flopper. Twice in the first period he quit skating as the play went the other way up the ice to complain to an official. Twice he flopped on the ice like he was shot from the Book Depository and writhed around only to miraculously recover by the next shift or when a powerplay came Pittsburgh's way. It was nice to go to a non-Red Wings game and have a rooting interest disliking Pittsburgh the way he does (every time he goes there he litters). Many Penguin fans had red and puffy eyes on the way out.
It was good loud crowd having fun on a Friday night. However, the jury is still out on that Cameron Bozo handing out the shirts all night long. Like Pete Townsend once sang, "A Little is Enough".
Time for Jersey City, After Dark
