Let’s focus on the positive!
Today is Gordie Howe’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mr. Hockey!
When you have a game like last night’s 10-3 loss to St. Louis, there is an understanding that your fans want to vent. Surely that was understood in the dressing room when Nicklas Lidstrom said the team deserved to get booed. It was also understood in Social Media through numerous Facebook comments, Tweets, and thousands of clicks to video of the post-game press conference.
We all have our different ways of getting over such a game. For George Malik, there are YouTube videos and hockey cards. Yours truly opted for replaying the game on XBOX at 3AM.
And yet the sun still came out this morning. Maybe Henrik Zetterberg was right when he said that “you’ve just got to go home, forget about it, come back and regroup.”
