Night of shorthanded goals..

Well the Columbus Blue Jackets may have lost tonight and had a lot of turn overs but I saw a lot of things that I liked. I liked the fact that Adam Foote had a short handed goal. I liked the fact that Freddy made a lot of big saves...even though he was trying to poke check on that first one and it didn't go over too hot. I did get mad at my boys and turn it off for the last 8 minutes. I did like the fact that Nikolai Zherdev had an assist on all of the goals by us...but like Michael pointed out...he was out on the ice for all of the Wild's goals.
I dislike the Wild's game as much as the next person which doesn't really make sense because I'm a huge fan of the Devils...but the way the Devils do it is exciting because Marty always makes the big saves and they're pretty entertaining and quite frankly...Backstrom isn't that entertaining. However Backstrom won the game tonight. Brent Burns who is my favorite Minnesota Wild player had a goal and was third star of the game.
I will write more about the game tomorrow...but, I just wanted to toss a quick post up...and say what's with all the shorties tonight?! Blue Jackets had one, Tampa had one, Anaheim had one, New Jersey had one, Ottawa had one, Montreal had one, Boston has one, and finally Chicago has one...and the night is not even over!! Anyway goodnight everyone...and twin this is for you...Go Yotes!!

I was glad to see Adam Foote get a goal. I have always liked him. I'm sad that Boogaard missed on his point blank opportunity, but it's good that he's shooting. It was a good game, well fought and exciting.
I'm now trying to change my mind about Sheppard. We'll see what happens.
