nervoustime actually - game sevens.

hi and happy national best friend day from arlington. becca and kg here from arlington. ness is at a well deserved time away at the lake with eric and we most def miss them both. currently watching the last five minutes of new york philly and moving on to the wild avs game. philly down by one. we are all cheering for them. if you remember ness picked giroux as her first pick in our fantasy league. currently drinking an earth themed wine that i found in the top 20 under 20 section at deluca's. it has a bit of a bite but is delicious. becca doesn't actually have a feeling either way on this game and apparently talbot is in net.

'jay thinks it's going to be a colorado boston stanley cup' - shoutout to jay and just so you know we are smoking inside because it's raining.

we'd like to give our support to the LA clippers. 'sterling is a racist and deserves to be publicly humiliated.' also pk subban. anyways.

there was a hockey musical on cbc sunday night, 'i was in the kitchen and thought i heard a song about hockey. i came in and there were two teams dancing on their skates. i taped it.'

two minutes left. time out. lundqvist is playing. we are wondering if he was put in after the one goal? now one min left and philly is taking their timeout. forty secs.

icing against the rangers and 12 seconds left. icing again. 2.7 seconds left. well, what could the hawks do with that kind of time?

the face off is at center ice tho. 'first hybrid icing of the playoffs' and we aren't sure what hybrid icing means, refs don't agree? rangers win.

next game, please.

COLORADO SCORED but here comes a wild penalty. also: we are bringing out snacks. so far so good, like the penalty was killed. i feel i need to give a shoutout to this guy jamie i had a crush on in grade nine who was a huge nordiques fan. the truth is i don't even remember his last name, but thanks j - i hope you are well and watching this game, although it's new brunswick time so hopefully also you don't have to work as early as becca and i do in the morning.

and this is your early warning that we may not finish blogging this game.

isn't it nice tho to wake up to a score you like. and if it is a score you don't like, at least you have a full day ahead of you, ready for many great opportunities.

next week i am travelling to europe. any readers in the balkan area please get in touch. i will be wanting to watch hockey at anytime. stoked also to visit king's landing. i am considering tho not going to either kosovo or albania. any suggestions are welcomed.

i'm surprised that people like minnesota. rebecca is surprised i bought seven dollar crackers. and koivu scored! we have him on our reg team but none of us picked him in the playoffs.

lol they call that guy 'el nino'. i would try to spell his name but you know who i mean right?

our snacks are delicious. pinapple, pickles, cheese, crackers and spanikopita coming up!

Jamie McGinn scores and Colorado is up 2:1 i remembered the guys last name who i had a crush on, it was brown. jamie brown, hope you are enjoying this lead.

so mackinnon and landeskog have been absent from the scoring sheet, i think and there is one min left in the first.

becca announces there has been goaltender interferrance in every game she has seen in these playoffs and encourages me to go to costco to buy crackers. pam texts that she is going to europe in september and we have switched to the sharks kings game. becca is going for la. she has quick as a goalie on her fantasy team 'that is notwithstanding'. i am going for the sharks. i was actually in this arena for a sharks game. 'a third of the fans are wearing black, a third are wearing teal and a third are wearing white.'

the tsn mid game coverage is overstating everything we feel. they just called if the kings beat the sharks 'the greatest collapse in the history of the nhl.' we disagree. other possible greatest collapeses: the jets leaving, the first lockout, the second lockout, teppo numminen being fired as assistant coach of the buffalo sabres. understand? this series, doubtful.

for the second time tonight i have reminded becca to check the oven.

my fave san jose shark is tommy wingels.

they are saying parise wrong and i will stay awake for this power play only i think. for minnesota.
dany heatly scored which earlier i was talking about him as the example of an ex you never want to see again 'i think those are the kind of guys that end up on the minnesota wild.' tie game!

i am going to sleep. thanks to rebecca for being the best best friend ever and blogging for the rest of the night, i love you!!!!!!


Awww! The feeling is mutual, Kendra. I love you, too! Wishing I was going with you to Serbia to that magical bridge but we'll have to wait until our EPIC TRIP TO CENTRAL AMERICA THIS FALL to travel together (cc Vanessa Winkworth).

The truth is, the reason I love hockey so much is because I get to watch it with all my favourite people. And the snacks.

But as per usual, I'm left blogging the late-night shift while everyone else has gone to bed. There are snacks left, so might as well.

Watching the LA game and Matt Irwin scores making it 1:0 Sharks.

Back to the Wild/Avs. The TV announcer is finally pronouncing Parise's name correctly. End of the 2nd. Still tied 2-2. Apparently LA has tied it up now! Switching channels.

Just for the record: the $5 crackers were better than the $7 dollar crackers (but the $7 crackers have sentimental value).

San Jose power play. Jonathan Quick is simply unbelievable. Holy shit. Dude definitely does some hardcore yoga. Doing splits left, right and center. Some kind of "questionnable goal" but there's no way that was a goal. Trust me guys.

So many game sevens. I'm tingly all over. Nervoustime! Skirmish on the ice.


San Jose with another power play. It's a test of Quick now. HOLY JESUS this is fucking frenetic. Should I wake up Kendra?

It's about 400 degrees in my apartment right now.

Kopitar scores! It's 2:1 LA. End of the 2nd.

Neil Young is in the crowd (not wearing teal). Keep on rockin in America, Neil.

I'm going to visit a foster kitten on Saturday, so chances are high that I will have a new pet this weekend. Already thinking about places to stash kitty litter. Even though it's been 8 or 9 years since my cat died, I still think of Precious every time I open up a can of tuna.

And back to the Avs game and score is now 4-3 Colorado. 6 min left in the 3rd. "Bedlam here is Colorado".

3 min left in the 3rd. Minnesota scores! Spurgeon. Tie game 4-4. Anything seems possible.

"What a remarkable night!" and the announcer is slowly morphing in Ron Burgundy. 1 min left before OT. Nobody likes you, Minnesota.

I've been distracted by a shared link to an old episode of Peewee's Playhouse. No wonder my generation is so confused. Look at the stuff we grew up on. Can you say acid trip?

Back to the LA/SJ game and now it's 3-1 LA. I'll find out who scored. Toffoli scored. Mike Richards gets sent to the box. (Yet another) SJ power play.

So much for getting a good night's sleep tonight. I am otherwise ready for bed (washed, brushed, pjs).

I judge a team by their font.

Back to the OT Col/Min game. JustasIchangedthechannel PING! El Nino! Holy Fuckity Fuck. Minnesota takes the win. FANS ARE CRYING. The Wild are advancing. Colorado fans everywhere are crushed. This is a big upset. Definitely not a "collapse of the NHL". Players are shaking hands and smiling. It's okay everybody! Another game down. Sleep is nigh.

Back to San Jose. And whoa big surprise (not) it's another SJ power play. Doughty stopping so many pucks reminiscent of Mark Stuart (MartStuart4Life).

This is probably the coolest invention I've seen in a very long time. You can DOODLE IN THE AIR (and my birthday is coming up just sayin):

LA scores again and this game is sealed. I'm going to bed. Love you all, Reb xo

easter eve.

happy easter from nervoustime. we are watching colorado and only now remembered to blog. earlier caught the end of the pittsburgh game and columbus won, that series is now 1-1. this game is 2-1 one goal from mackinnon, one from landeskog. those two are my faves! becca is rooting for pomminville in this game, surprisingly most of all to her. gatorade commercial comes on and auguste comments 'isn't that bad for you?"

discussion of tomorrow's easter plans, there is a flyers game at 11, we are thinking of watching redwings / boston at two. rebecca feels compassion for eastern european catholic players 'isn't easter more religious than easter.' while typing this i missed her gatorade / love analogy, which is 'just because something is unhealthy for you doesn't mean it doesn't feel good at the time.' true story.

we're planning to go to hamam. auguste is going to the fort garry brunch in the morning!

mackinnon! 'putting on a show for the ages'. so mackinnon has three points in this game and landeskog scored again. happy to have these two on my fantasy hockey team.

we'd like to give a shoutout to the nelson leafs of nelson bc.

bryz looks sad.

rebecca 'you play your star goalie right away just like they did with luongo - it gives them confidence'.

the snacks tonight are delicious. that matza brittle i missed last game when i went to sleep (awesome sleep, btw) and a sort of breaded marshmellow. becca doesn't get the fade out music on tsn tonight 'WHO WAS THAT, WHAT WAS THAT?'

malone in a fight and becca wonders if the other guy razzed him about his bro's recent mishaps to which auguste responds 'you guys know so much how do you keep it straight.'

one min left in the second. rebecca asked if hainsey has had his twins, so far i think not, i do a twitter search for the word 'hainsey' on a daily basis and because of that i know that @hainsey_17 's parents are going on a date tonight!

did patrick roy get a haircut? his hair looks fantastic tho. ness has varlomov. as to patrick roy, becca 'i bet he doesn't smoke any weed. he would be the least chilled out stoner if he did'

2nd period over. i am heading to bed but becca may continue. happy easter, love nervoustime

Let the Playoffs Begin

It's playoff nervoustime. Rebecca, Nesse and Kendra on Arlington. Still recovering from our family Passover seder last night: we had an accordion and ukulele and percussion accompaniment and there was smiting (even though I really believe you should kill people with kindness) and drinking and it was wonderful.

Passover 2014, everyone's drunk.
First up is Montreal @ Tampa Bay. "Treat people as if you want them to treat you", or something like that, says Bob Cole at the beginning of the 2nd. Hockey/Passover analogy? Tied game at 1 point each. It's a messy game, lots of hard embraces against the glass.

We are all participating in Fantasy Hockey League now as individual teams (no longer a collective!) I have the weirdest team ever as a result of our draft night coinciding with Passover, the drunkest holiday of the year.

Vanessa knows somebody going to Greenland and we can't help but celebrate their huge spike in population. Stamkos (unassisted) and whoa I actually have him on my Fantasy team and the night has taken a surprising upswing. Skirmishes abound. Then Gionta ties it back up.

NEWSFLASH: Vanessa got a smartphone. She's on it ALL THE TIME now and understands why Kendra and I are always on ours.
rebecca is making a salad. 2-2 montreal tampa, end of the second. Pittsburgh / Columbus 3-3 in the third. Nervoustime everywhere!

Eating cool ranch dorritos.
The Pittsburgh crowd is a sea of yellow "freebie" t-shirts. "Didn't Pittsburgh used to do whiteouts?" A quick internet search tells us that Pittsburgh is trying to set a new trend called a "Gold-Out". "That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of" - Kendra. Agreed. Don't mess with a good thing (hockey/love analogy).

I made my famous tahini dressing which makes anything taste good and calms upset stomachs.

Speaking of upset stomachs, I'm devastated that Teppo Numminen was let go from Buffalo. Huge mistake. Teppo is one of the best mentors any team could ask for. But this means TEPPO CAN NOW COME COACH FOR WINNIPEG. And with Teemu retiring at the end of this year, know where this is going.

Paul Maurice has signed on for 4 more years (which I already knew because I got an alert on Sunday that he had enrolled his kids at a high school in Winnipeg). So now's your chance to claim one of hockey's greatest guys ever as our new Assistant Defense Coach. WELCOME BACK TEPPO.

Jen Funk saw a Sandhill crane today and that is one huge point for springtime.
"Fuck this weather"
Back to the Tampa/Montreal game.

Huge accolades for the salad. You're welcome, ladies.

Eller scores, 3-2 Montreal.

And the Tampa player from Montreal scores against his homeland's team! Killorn ties the game back up. "Juicy turnover" and it's getting outrageous.

Back from a quick trip outside visiting with Lisa who lives down the street and both she and Hank have quit smoking for multiple weeks! We're all inspired.

Vanek scored for Montreal and we wonder if it was in honour of Teppo Numminen (because he used to play for Buffalo).

Kendra and Vanessa are both cheering for Montreal, it looks like that anyway. The real reason Kendra loves Montreal is because of PK Subban and his Subby cam:

5:30 minutes left in the 3rd and Stamkos scores again. Whoa whoa whoa tie game.

"Turnover factory".

This game is going to overtime.

Announcement: Kendra has paid off her student loan!

We're trying to remember the rules for OT playoff hockey (it's a tradition, this memory loss). There's no shoot out. Sudden death til you drop.

Kendra and Vanessa just ran into Evan outside and he showed them his Maritime Radio License. It's legit.

So K lets us know Tampa Bay player Ryan Malone was caught with cocaine and is out until further notice (charges pending?) We all hope Ryan gets his shit together and adopts a healthier lifestyle.

We're back to the Pittsburgh game. It's 3:3 tie game. But breakaway for the Pens and Sutter scores! 11:30 left in the 3rd period and Pittsburgh's got the lead at 4:3. Text from J Funk "Smoko keeps thinking the banging at the Pittsburgh game is someone at the door". Oooh, Smoko. Nervoustime's official mascot. Pittsburgh WINS!

Kendra leaves, it's all too much excitement and she has to sleep.

Ok folks this Montreal/Tampa OT is OUTTA THIS WORLD.

Steven Stamkos is solid, ladies and gentlemen. #OTMagic

"There are so many apps", Vanessa is enamoured. Everybody is looking forward to the long weekend!

It feels like it's getting warmer out this evening. -4 degrees, NE wind 19 km/hr. Remember when it wasn't winter?

J Funk wants to talk about the moon. Ok. Did anyone stay up late to see the lunar eclipse on Monday night? I fell asleep, missing multiple phone calls, texts and alarms. But that's okay because lots of people stayed up and took video including local filmmaker Mike Maryniuk:

Max Pacioretti sends the puck PINGING off the post and we're making loud sounds in the living room right now. Gutteral animal sounds.

But oh no, Weise scores and beats Anders Lindback making the final score 5-4 Montreal.

We're having some matzah brittle (super easy to make and fucking addictive! )

Goodnight, love Nervoustime. xo

Happy 5 year anniversary nervoustime!

Tomorrow nervoustime turns five years old. It started when GSP and I were watching a hockey game and someone said 'it's nervoustime'. Graham turned to me and said 'we should do a hockey blog called nervoustime".

It started off with us (me?) not knowing much about hockey. Well, if you look at earlier entries you may wonder who Scott "Oakes" was, and obviously how old he was. But we've discovered that along with other things ('who's JVR?' 'are the Sedin's Canadian citizens?' 'does anyone like Shea Weber?').

Thanks to everyone who was with us and grew with us along the way.

In the 'where are they now?' aspect I will say that even though Mark and I broke up four years ago we still regularly send text messages to each other saying simply "JAGR!" or "Olllllllllllli." Graham is writing his last exam on Wednesday. Becca, Ness and I are all joining a playoff fantasy league with our own team each!!!

On the topic of the playoffs I'd like to send a special shout out to my sister Karla for the heart wrenching upcoming struggle of watching her two faves the Blackhawks and the Blues. Always positive, the preseries quote was "it will be a win for me." We together make a limb.

My playoff hopes are San Jose (I have a shirt), Chicago (I have a shirt and a baby outfit for the next time a friend of mine becomes pregnant - bought a pack of three), Flyers (I have a shirt, long enough to be a dress on the most casual friday), Detroit (Alfie, deserves it), Colorado (I really like the young kids), Anaheim (Teemu deserves everything.), Montreal (well, PK Subban won us over and pretty much helped us almost win our fantasy league) and Pittsburgh (who doesn't miss Malkin's parents?). I will do an update in the second round but the first round is really the best. It's anyone's game and that's another great hockey / love analogy.

Always take the chance and expect the best. Here's to another five great years,

xok for nervoustime

april 9th! redwings/penguins

Happy birthday to all the Aries out there!
hey from arlington! two of the three of us are older than last blog. ness celebrated her bday yesterday and mine is today. also happy birthday to nervoustime enemy / friend colin shparples aka greatful weener.

we are watching detroit pittsburgh and it's 1-0 in the second. if detroit wins tonight they make the playoffs.

becca made me this incredible card which you can see below.....also thanks to my nephew isaish for the ring and bracelet.

it's windy tonight and congrats to trevor linden for the new canucks job. i used to be a big canucks fan and appreciate that coming full circle i guess you'd say.

as for coming full circle my plan for age 37 is to be more helpful and go to yugoslavia.  i am travelling to belgrade and have three weeks with no plans before i have to fly from croatia so i am just going to try and figure things out as i go - hopefully there will be several adventures along the way and at least one or two places to watch a playoff game.

speaking of playoffs, it looks like columbus may make it who i find boring. it looks like there are about three games left and new jersey is out.

my nephew today predicted pavelec wouldn't be back next year, which he personally thinks is terrible.

we joined a playoff fantasy league - or really i signed the girls up in exchange for them signing me up for because i continually get emails from them and have no ability to get myself to a farm, i have a hard time dating people that don't live in wolseley.

pittsburgh scored, currently 1-1. neal. no score in the montreal chicago game, end of the second.

kindl scored and fluery calling goaltender interferance and vanessa doesn't like orpik at all - does anyone? 'the most dominant shift from the redwings' it's a goal. kindl would be a cute first name for a child - attention bangers. our friend scott is having a new baby due the same day as the hainsey much exciting stuff coming.

and pittsburgh socred, speaking of.

neal again - 'who has that guy???????" my phone beeped and you guessed it, another email from farmers only.

so we got locked out. had to call caretaking hero, jay who arrived to let us in and was surprised becca had her buzz connected to her landline 'nobody uses keys anymore' but then he left happy 'great touque' comment directed at vanessa.

announcers are talking about jeremy morin and i've noticed him a lot too - very great to see. it's hard not to play well as a hawk maybe.

watching hawks habs now, power play for chicago coming up for minutes left they trail by one, pretty sweet airsave by crawford earlier. apparently patrick kane has been skating.

it looks like montreal is going to win. 'a familiar site tomas vanek providing a staring role' - remember when we hoped he would be a jet. nervoustime for the blackhawks!!!! oooh apparently patrick sharp was almost in my birthday card and when i look back jordan staal is a better choice.

AND CHICAGO SCORES! 'that might have been the most productive time out of all time'

montreal is coming back like they don't want over time. becca 'i don't think i have seen one montreal game this year - so they are pretty good now eh?' they are. i have prob watched more montreal games this year than any year since 92. who is 67 on montreal, that isn't a common number, but frolik has it.....

becca is looking up and overtime is coming up! apparently chicago hasn't score an overtime goal this season and drunkpatrickkane is my fave twitter account after members of my family, rebecca/vanessa and adam wazny.

patrick sharp!!!! and we are rewinding. HAWKSWIN!

it was a heart breaking goal. ok i'll have a cupcake, pittsburgh up by one.

the cupcake was delicious. that was actually my fourth dessert of the day, also had an ice cream after dinner, and cake with my oma at lunch time.

rebeca is telling me how to disable my farmers only acocunt which is prob a good idea. two mins left in the game but pittsburgh is in the lead.

nervoustime detroit. DETROIT SCORES!!!! that was coming you could tell, this is actually my dream hockey birthday.

i'm pretty sure as long as detroit gets into over time they make the playoffs? they haven't missed since 1990 and they are in!!!! and it's now overtime coming.

and rivalry night is really alive bc becca was cheering for the pens. some solid chances in the overtime period. discussion of how they call nyquist the russian rocket now. and wondering who they will pick as the next finnish flash, becca comments it would have to be 'the new finnish flash' or 'finnish flash junior' in the case of one of teemu's sons. i'm pretty sure those guys only golf or play baseball or is that gretzky's sons?

in the first round detroit will play pittsburgh or 'the other nhl team in black and gold' - bruins. well i will be here for the first round and i can't wait.

my sc choices are chicago, anaheim, detroit, st. louis.

here comes the shootout. nervoustime. becca sends her caretaker a thank you text 'we are blogging that you are our hero'

all super tired here tho, aging is exhausting, lol. i actually LOVE saying lol now, i started in a slight sarcastic way but i have now embraced it in my daily vernacular. jokinin and crosby are in the 40s for shootouts. those above 50, oshie, toews, karla schulz. haha. love you karla and miss too megan :)

slippery alfredson stopped by the artistic save. 'a snow angel masterpiece'

here comes sid. NO

that was slow. called 'patrick kaneish'

datsyuk. stopped. 'a highly skilled guy'


jen text 'i have never heard alfredson described as slippery before. this shootout is hilarious'

and jossi scores. 'a jokinen from another mother'

tatar........stopped. pensguins win. redwings still make the playoffs. we will all live to see another year. everyone is leaving with smiles on their faces.

love you guys, xo nervoustime.

playoff run: redwings v. bruins

hi from arlington. currently watching bruins wings, no score and we are hungry! vanessa arrives wishing she ordered more. still no score. some things occurred including we were locked outside when the food came, vanessa spilled a glass of wine, we took a selfie and evan walked by en route to barchetts to buy ice cream. leads me to the idea of the dating site - just how people in wols are my fave to know.

vanessa 'i have so much concrete in my nose'. detroit penalty. we are going for lucic tonight and boston scored. ness and i are going for detroit, rebecca is going for boston and is rocking her pj stock crew tshirt. no goal. becca 'i think i like that ref. the little guy'. as i was explaining to vanessa how i want to attend taco bell for my bday boston scored an actual goal that one counts.

discussion of our playoff odds at fantasy 'if the right people lose and we keep winning we have a chance.' 'sounds like a jets scenerio' 'nervoustime for nervoustime'

alfredson isn't playing tonight, unidentified illness. long sigh to my sister and sorry to hear JT is out until the playoffs. going to get some soup.

rebecca was thinking we should pic colours and fonts for each narrative voice but i hope everyone knows the lower case is k.

and detroit has scored. tomas tatar scored, dekeyser assist.

discussion of teemu's last game. look for a post of teemu's goodbye letter to the jets in finnish and poorly translated english below.

while eating we talked about greenland, population 56K i didn't know there were so many people there as we have to date not received any blog views from the country. hello to hockey fans in greenland tho.

the spicy noodle was the same (i.e. delicious) however slight change in the mooshi. 'a little more like a tortilla'

here comes becca on the blog......#CapsBack We're into the 2nd period and talking about birthdays and labiaplasty. It's been all over CBC today. Nervoustime would like to say that we're all satisfied with our labia. "Absolutely". And we hope you are, too.

"Isn't there a movie called 'Greenlander'?" "No, that's Zoolander".

"Ooooohhhhh my goodness" - Nesse. The game is frantic. 3 minutes to go in the 2nd.

'Rivalry Night' is simply a marketing ploy and is rarely indicative of an actual rivalry between teams. "Like when Buffalo and Carolina played - with Hainsey against Teppo" - Kendra.

FarmersOnly. Could this possibly be true?

Ok, we've now set up an account and are checking out farmers in North Dakota. Kendra offered up her email address. We check out a few profiles and hey, who knows what could happen? "Preferred Body Type: Tell ya later".

Two zambonis on the ice. "Oooh fancy".

We've decided to all wear red to Rae & Jerry's on Friday night for Aries birthday bash. "Or pink, and clash" - Nesse. However, I love red and pink together. Who's coming? Us, Carolyn, Zig, Sally, Tyler, Mark, cousin Kevin, Evan, Alli, Anna, Cameron, Robbie Rousseau, Angie, Kara, Uzma (obvs), Tracey, Sonia, Jocelyn, GSP (VIP), Grant, Allan, Randi, Jen Funk, Omar, Libby, Lee. That's way over the reservation for 20. Headsup Bangerz is a "maybe"! Please join us, or we can all meet up at Taco Bell on the walk home.

Red Room, Red Room.
We're just into the 3rd. And Soderberg scores, Bergeron assist. 2:1 Boston. "I still like Dougie Hamilton" - Kendra.

"Move the puck, move yourself".

"Patrice Bergeron would make a good spokesperson for Advil"??? "I can't believe Advil sponsors NHL hockey replays".

Kendra's received a couple emails from cowboys!

"Wish I was the panda" - K.

WHOA Detroit nearly scored. Boston has many more shots on goal.

We're eating candy and Jurco scores, tying up the game 2:2. "Out of the dog house, into the Penthouse." Now Nyquist has scored, exploding across the ice like a cannon. Unreal goal. "Amazing story". 3:2 Detroit.

Thanks to the Wahl bros for hosting a wonderful weekend in Lake of the Woods. We drove home through a blizzard and the highway was closed right after we left. Eric Wahl will always be my hero for getting us home safe and sound.

Kendra announces biased announcers are the worst. 3:50 to go in the 3rd.

It's a beautiful evening in Winnipeg tonight. Wind is light, 9 km/hr (NE). There's a crescent moon, too.

just two or so mins left. feels good to be heading home with leftovers, thanks again spicy noodle. so obvs we hope detroit wins the wild card. i don't know why people keep displaying non real matchups 'what if the playoffs started tomorrow'. if columbus makes the playoffs really i will be sad,
have we talked recently about the hartford whalers? on hainsey's bday i discovered his grandparents had season tickets and i just really remembered how much i loved those guys.

one and a half minutes left. goalie cam and tukka rask is on his way to the bench. so cute. icing with 37 secs to go. 'you can't try to be soft. you can't hope it out of the zone. if you ice it you ice it.'

boston time out. redwings win! 'they needed to win this one and they did.'

xo love ya becca, ness and kenny g for nervoustime.
