sherri still hasn't picked a team for the year, becca is wearing a penguins shirt, kendra is going for the canucks, flyers and oilers (in that order), mark came in a new jersey hat, graham is going for montreal ("i have such a strong emotional investment in the montreal canadians, you can quote me on that.")
this is the game we were supposed to go to! so far we haven't seen sherri's parents or malkin's parents although both could be in the house.
discussion about fleury's book.
nice goal. that's a graham smith peloquin goal. graham "i was never a superstar. i scored goals like that. andrew paskevich was my linemate."
