Off-Day Open Thread: Coming Down off the High

"Hey Joe? It's me Larry. Yeah, Z's got the puck, he'll be on your end in just a second. Let me know when he gets there"

I wonder if I'll still be so happy about a 5-4 overtime win against Calgary when the season is over and they're making summer plans that involve two extra months of R&R?  In the meantime, I'll stay giddy knowing that Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Lidstrom plant themselves firmly on the correct side of something Justin Bourne discussed by using a metaphor which I'm going to start calling 'The Cupcake Question".

Our buddy Robocop is back in the fanposts with his X things about the game last night.  These are always good for a few chuckles and I'm yet to disagree with any of the points he makes.

Jay Bouwmeester is crying about the good call that sent him to the box with 1:56 left in the game while Niklas Hagman takes a higher road about a slashing call he took that would have made me furious if the center ice ref had made it against a Wings player.

If you haven't seen it, head to Kuklas Korner to watch Corey Perry put the puck into his own net from 200 feet away to seal a Ducks loss.  This is like waking up on Christmas morning to find a Game Boy in your stocking.

Have at it below in the comments.  Anything goes (unless of course it doesn't)
