Keys to the Game

Plop-plop, fizz-fizz-

-time to embrace chaos, it is. If the Blashill Bingo Wheel of Doom is spinning up a storm tonight, we may just have to roll with it and hope the five guys who still have legs in the third period can carry the team alongside a big serving of lights out goaltending. Maybe some divine intervention. Whatever it takes.

1-2-3 Let’s have fun

Mantha said the guys need to have fun, which obviously in short supply this season, but I’ll take a close/fun loss over complete despair any day. I mean, we could also win, I’m not saying don’t try to win, but at least make it interesting and score a cool goal or three.
