Okay, This Is The End, Eh?
We won't dwell on the obvious. Yes, it was close. Yes, John Madden's goal at 19:59 of the third to tie things up was unbelievable. Yes, Sergei Brylin's pathetic attempt to force another round of shooters in the shootout will not soon be forgotten. In the end, we finished a point out of the playoffs, even closer than last year when we finished two points back.
It's over. This is the end. We have another summer to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic and hope a decent goalie falls off the vine and into our lineup. This team needs so much work but with large, cumbersome contracts and a salary cap there isn't much hope.
I had a new masthead ready to go had the Islanders lost this afternoon. I almost got to use it, but almost only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades. Here it is. Go Raptors Go!
