I give up. We lost again. To the Kings.
It wasn’t that bad a game, but we just couldn’t score. Marty kept us in it pretty well. Jere Lehtinen scored in his first game back and generally looked pretty good. Mike Modano had a really pretty goal at the end of some vintage Mo-to-Zubie-to-Mo passing. (I loved the sound of Mo’s goal as it clanged off pretty much all the iron.)
Even the power play looked good. The dang thing just didn’t score. I don’t get it. They mixed stuff up, they moved their feet, they zipped the puck around, the controlled the zone, and nothing.
Oh well. Instead of being all depressed about the way the season is going so far, let’s just enjoy Mike Ribeiro’s brilliant shootout move.
