What an amazing first night of the NHL playoffs! Dallas and Vancouver play four overtimes, Nashville scores two goals in the third to take San Jose to overtime, the Ducks score with five minutes left to beat Minnesota, and Sidney Crosby makes his playoff debut, although it's viciously spoiled by the fired-up Ottawa Senators! I can't wait to see what ESPN has say about this!
This was the front page of ESPN.com's NHL page today. The Second Annual Barry Melrose Mullet Madness Gallery. They couldn't talk about mullets on any other day of the calander year except for the one right after the most important night of hockey in the last 10 months? I guess the references to Paul McCartney and 80s Michael Keaton are pretty topical.
I can't wait til Wildcard Week in the NFL next year, I want to see who makes the Second Annual John Clayton Turkey Neck But Also Wearing Glasses Madness Gallery, which I imagine will be on ESPN.com the morning after the first two playoff games.
