Flyers Advance With Huge Game 7 OT Victory

I always hear how overtime NHL playoff games are the most exciting thing in sports. I disagree. To me overtime in hockey is gut wrenching and unnerving.  Every time the Caps got the puck in the Flyers zone my heart starting racing about 200 mph, and I could barely stay still at the edge my my seat.

All of those nerves made it that much more enjoyable to see Joffrey Lupul blast that rebound in the net for the series winning goal. It was a huge adrenaline rush, and I have not felt so good in a long time.

I think I take sports too serious.

I am just ecstatic right now over this win right now. I don’t even want to break the game down, I just want to enjoy it. I know overall the Flyers did not play their best hockey, but a win is a win. Flyers fans will take them anyway they can get em.

Oh to all those fans who wanted the Caps to win because of Ovechkin screw you. I also would like to say F YOU MIKE WISE!

Here are the highlights of the game.

    Since you were kind enough to mention this in your blog, allow me to say…ARRRGGGHHHH!!!!  I SO thought we had you guys.  And I don’t love the Caps just because of Ovi (though I love him too).  I’ve been a caps fan for years and it’s nice to see the team finally coming together.  Even with this loss, I think our future looks bright.  Go beat up the Penguins for us if you get past the next round.
