But after last night Forsberg and Kariya played a large role in keeping my Avalanche out of the playoffs in about 10 years. Avalanche play the Flames tonight in their last game of the season - incidentally Calgary is who the Avs were trying to catch to get into the playoffs. Joe Sakic needs 3 points tonight to reach 100 on the season, which would be his sixth 100 point season.
Congratulations to Michigan State the NCAA Frozen Four Champions. After the Penn State Hockey season was over MFB was asked to broadcast Notre Dame Hockey's post season. He found himself at the Joe Louis arena where Notre Dame won the CCHA championship which sent them to the Midwest Regionals in Grand Rapids. Notre Dame lost that championship game to Michigan State.
MFB's personal hockey season came to a close yesterday. The dreaded home improvement scenario of husband on ladder, then husband suddenly on ground with broken ankle requiring surgery to insert pin has placed his hockey equipment bag in storage for the foreseeable future. We hope to get an appointment with the team orthopedic surgeon tomorrow morning and I'm saying prayers that the surgery can be done no later than Wednesday.
And just now the Islanders winning over the Devils in a shoot out has ended his Maple Leafs playoff hopes. Sigh...whose team to cheer on now? I'm sure Twig or Jonesy have a suggestion -snerk-
