On the other side of the pond, the Hammies did what they were supposed to and demolished the Belfast Giants by 7-0. They'll play the hated Marlies (who only won 6-1 over the Edinburgh Capsomethings) for the Gardiner Cup tomorrow. The match was obviously lopsided although the Giants goalie did a fantastic job considering he faced a whopping 52 shots compared to just 14 for the Hammies goalies (somewhere Jaro is sadly shaking his head in understanding). He did a good job of keeping the Hammies' scoring down to just one goal after the first period after White scored on the PP. Unfortunately for him, it fell apart in the second period when PK did all the work only to have Russel take credit for their second goal just 12 seconds into the second period. Brrrrock Trotter added one and Russell took more credit for another goal after PK did all the work again. Johnansson, Anderson and Brrrock Trotter (again) would score in the third to completely stomp on the Giants. I really want to trade the Marlies for the Scottish announcer dudes. Flandersdude even had a brainmeld with one of them as Giants goalie almost allowed another goal.
Annnnnnnnnnd Hockey Night in Toronto is back. And guess what they were playing tonight? Hmm yeah. Leafs/Wings game. Meh. Wasn't really paying attention other than to diss the Leafs and scream at the Komisaurus.
REGULAR SEASON HERE WE COME.
And yes, this post is lame. I'm tired. Pooh.
