A few Hockey Day in Canada thoughts...
- The Leafs beat the Wings in overtime, thanks to their European forward tipping in a low point shot from the pinching defenceman. I could swear this reminds me of something, but I can't quite put my finger on it.
Any Red Wing fans want to help jog my memory?
- Linesman Pat Dapuzzo getting kicked in the face, suffering a broken jaw and 60-stitch cut, and then shoving the ref out of his way to go break up a fight was the most badass thing I've seen all year. The NHL should use that clip in their advertising.
- I really enjoy the rare times that the Senators are on a prime time Hockey Night broadcast. It's just so cute to hear Dean Brown, normally a raving Sens homer who would make Bowen or Jeanerette blush, try to be all impartial and professional. You can just picture him practising his big boy voice in front of the mirror. Adorable, Dean!
