I had to read the score twice to make sure. And a third to make double sure I wasn’t losing my mind. We actually managed to pull off a win. In the shootout. Against a team that tries very hard not to suck. We still don’t have a chance in hell at a postseason, but I think I’m starting to find a little tiny bit of that excitement again.
We played them back in December, when I’d originally thought we might still have a chance at playing at least into the first round of the playoffs. We lost. By the same score, though–that has to count for something, right? Work with me, here. If I’d known then what I know now, that loss might have felt a little differently. No, no it wouldn’t. It was against Montreal. Nevermind.
