Boy, last night was a familiar sight that we hoped as hockey fans we wouldn't have to see too much more of.
Not the hockey; seeing hockey was great. I had a lot of fun with that part. The part where the team played very well for stretches, but overall had longer stretches of undisciplined or unfocused play which cost them a game they definitely could have won. That part licked scrote.
Although it wasn't all bad. Gustav Nyquist's 3-point night was promising, as was the play of Tomas Tatar.
Tonight the Griffins are back at it against the Rockford IceHogs. This is a game you'd really like to see the Griffins win because Rockford is the Blackhawks' affiliate and therefore screw them. The IceHogs are 2-3-1 on the young season and sit two points ahead of their division rival Griffins.
Rockford's got a ton of recognizable names: Marcus Kruger, Andrew Shaw, Nick Leddy, Jimmy Hayes, Brett Lebda, Phillippe....wait... Brett Lebda? THE BRETT LEBDA?! Hahahahahhahaa. Oh man.
Puck drops shortly after 7 tonight. Let's go Griffins!
