I know we’re all very busy people here, so I’m going to cut right to the chase. Chris Osgood says there’s not going to be a goalie fight between the Avs and the Wings.
I’m glad Mitch Albom thought to ask.
The Wings beat the Avs in game one, with Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood starting over Dom Hasek. Osgood was everything I’ve said he is: just good enough to not lose. And really, I think that’s better than being a goalie like Hasek, who will blow games just as easily as he’ll save them.
Of course, Colorado went into the game with some medical issues, and left with a few more. Peter Forsberg and Wojtek Wolski both missed game one and goalie Jose Theodore left the game sick.
Last night’s Flyers loss to the Habs taught Philadelphia something about what I like to call the Kharma of Officiating. Also, the fans in Montreal have to be pretty rough, if people from Philadelphia are shocked by them. At least there were no car fires last night.
Also, over with the Dallas Stars, everyone finally seems to be convinced goalie Marty Turco won’t freak out in the playoffs. Let’s see how he does when the Sharks set up behind his net and just keep cycling the puck within two feet of his net, though.
Also, I don’t get Sean Avery.
