Ow. It hurts.
I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with a banging headache or some form of post St. Paddy's day sufferings. For this Muppet, it's not nearly as bad as the hangover from a troubling Leaf weekend, where one point out of a possible four is still good enough to be right in the thick of it. As thankful as I am that none of the other teams around us can put together a streak, it is not all that impressive to be hanging onto 10th with 11 games to go. Opportunities are quickly passing by. Time is running out. Pass the Advil.
Tonight, Ottawa will face the Stanley Cup champions of the (maybe not so distant) future, Pittsburgh. A match-up some are calling a first round preview.
