- and we didn't get murdered.
Too bad the Devils couldn't say the same.
The AHF crew headed out to see the Penguins slaughter the Devils, which was weird, seeing as the Penguins didn't even play all that well. We did get to see Sidney Crosby do a trick or two, and Malkin have a few nice moves before falling to the ice and dishing off a pass for a nice assist, but it still wasn't that satisfying.
One thing I did learn is how much I hate Evgeni Malkin. I know, he's good at hockey and everything, I just hate looking at the son of a bitch. He looks like that vaguely overweight , borderline retarded kid who used to live on your block, hit your dad up to rake your yard, and then do a shitty job. One of those slobs with the perpetual wet lower lip.
Still, he raked up the Devils without too much trouble last night, I'll tell ya that much.
Honestly, I don't know that I've ever seen a shittier hockey game in a nicer arena. Sweet sightlines, good food, not a great turnout, but if these Devils have been putting out the kind of effort I saw last night all season, I can understand why.
Seriously, Elias played better when he had Hepitatis.
The crowd was none too pleased to see Petr Sykora scoring goals either. I was half expecting Jason Arnott to walk into the arena in street clothes and take a dump on the brand new Devils carpet.
Still, great arena, good times.
