Two quick data points from the first two games:
Game 1: 0-3 vs. Detroit Red Wings
OH GAWD SHUT OUT IN THE HOME OPENER THIS TEAM IS A NIGHTMARE OF INCOMPETENCE THEY'LL NEVER WIN A GAME THE SKY ISN'T FALLING IT FELT
Game 2: 1-0 @ Boston Bruins
ALL HAIL LORD VARLAMOV HE-WHO-MUST-NOT-BE-SCORED-UPON
WE HAVE BEATEN THE CHAMPIONS ON THEIR ICE AND TURCO'D THEIR VALIANT RASK ARE WE NOT NOW THE CHAMPIONS? AND SURELY WE SHALL BE A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH ALL YEAR LONG
A little bit of sanity should perhaps insert itself, said Ryan Lambert this morning on Puck Daddy but seriously, fuck that. Lord Varlamov and his Puck Eaters are gathering strength, and soon they will burst forth from their lair and reclaim the throne that is rightfully theirs.
