YES. THANK YOU BABY HOCKEY JESUS.
Mike Smith started in net tonight, despite the whole wisdom teeth thing. He was fantastic, saving 17 of 18 shots on goal. At one point, Jussi Jokinen accidentally high-sticked Smith in the face, and he fell to the ice in pain – he was writhing in pain and I panicked a little bit, I admit. We were sitting in my living room, and Razor said something about Smith being on the ice, hurt, and then they went to commercial. I freaked out real bad, for real. Thankfully, he wasn’t seriously hurt, and played the rest of the game.
Jokinen got a hat trick, plus one! It was awesome, I love seeing hats thrown on the ice. Other goals scored by Ribeiro and Halpern. Zubov has 599 career assists. Stars won. Awesome.
Short and sweet. I’m flustered.
