Oh Barb - it is just so much fun watching these kids play. They played every single minute of that game. Nugent-Hopkins got 5 points, Eberle got 4, Taylor got 4, and the list goes on. This win over the "NHLs 'best' team" is one they really needed but to win in such a big way can't help but push them to work even harder. It was like all the skill and talent came together on this night and they fulfilled every promise.
It was a great night for Canadian teams all around as they outscored their opponents 26 to 7. I watched the Habs game but hope to catch the Leafs one on replay as it looked like a good one too. Just got in on the last period of the Jets as I was away voting - glad to see they won too.
I'm listening and laughing as I do, to the various hockey commentators who are almost in a state of ecstasy over the Oiler win and are fast running out of superlatives to describe them. LOL!
