I’m so glad we have Brad! Seriously, who do you want to give the puck to in overtime?
Tuukka hung on in a game from which he really needed to have a solid win after allowing four goals on nine shots on Saturday night in Vancouver. In the final period as Jack continued to warn about Johnny Gaudreau being out on the ice, I worried more that Dougie would do something stupid, like scoring, and wished that Spooner had taken the opportunity to just knock him over and take the puck. But I didn’t have to worry, I just had to go and let Brad.

Tonight, the B’s are on Edmonton to take on the
Spill Oil and their hideous orange jerseys. I used to like them before the Adidas hostile takeover of uniform manufacturing which led to ugly jerseys in Nashville (bright mustard jerseys that look like practice Jerseys), New Jersey (yes, I understand hem stripes now), and Edmonton (the orange is too bright for that much darker blue, yuck). Hopefully the cubs can contain them.
