Christmas Elves 1
I was having so much fun at the game last night dancing, cheering & booing the Wild fans that I may have missed a few moments… it happens. But I caught the important stuff. So here we go....
After a scoreless first period, defenseman Zybnek Michalek blasted a slap shot past Santa Backstrom at 19:33 of the 2nd. 25 seconds later, OlliCoyote sends one past St. Nick as well. The new kid, Joakim Lindstrom; who played in his second game last night with the Yotes after being called up from San Antonio, caught Jolly Ol' St. Nick off guard with a tip in at 4:41 of the 3rd. A wee lil Elf called Antti Miettinen ruined Bryz's shut out with a wrister at 8:25 of the 3rd. Stupid elves...
Congratulations to Daniel Carcillo, who played in his 100th career NHL game last night. We ♥ you Danny. GO DANNY GO!
