The Quest for Lord Stanley's Cup Continues
Tonight also marks the second meeting for the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Habs won game one in a closely fought battle, and had to do so in OT. The Bolts have Steve Stamkos back on the ice and he is definitely stepping up doing everything to give them a fighting chance in the series. The Habs have ace goalie, Carey Price, who helped Canada win the gold in Sochi just a couple of months ago. Price seems to be able to focus under pressure and this series will not fail to entertain.
Our final game tonight features the Anaheim Ducks and the Dallas Stars and the stand-out name in this series, at least for me, has to be Ryan Getzlaf. The man took a puck to the face in the last minutes of game one, and the resulting slash to his jaw required "numerous" stitches. However, he is expected to play in game two. Oh yeah, and if that wasn't enough, his wife gave birth to their daughter, Willa, just after midnight last night.
In my mind, Getzlaf is already the first star of the game! The Ducks lead the series 1-0, with a win Wednesday night. They led 4-0, and although Dallas managed to get themselves back in the game, they fell short by one goal.
