I sat down to watch the Red Wings last night, which is something I don’t usually have the luxury of doing. They were playing the Wild, so it was a battle of my favorite team versus my new home team. The game ended 1-1 after a scoreless overtime, thanks to a late third period goal by Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman. A tie seems appropriate considering my divided loyalties.
As a bonus, my boy, Pavel Datsyuk, had a sweet breakaway scoring opportunity. He was taken down from behind, resulting in a penalty shot, but was still able to get a respectable shot off while sliding on his butt. Unfortunately his penalty shot was denied. Wild goalie Dwayne Roloson had seen footage of Datsyuk’s fancy moves and was ready for him. Better swap it up next time, Pavel.
