Some good news and some bad news.
First, the bad: the Flames are out of the playoffs and they’ll probably play the backup at the last game on Saturday, so they Flames have basically pulled their goalie for the season. Given how crappy the season started, they finished strong – Kipper’s tied for most wins as a Flames goalie, Iggy got his 1000th point and 40 goals this season. My beloved Bourque stayed pretty and tied his records for goals. (We’ll over look his +/-, because ouch.) Try harder next year, boys.
Second, the good: I too have pulled the goalie. And can I just say that there’s some strange inverse math here. IUD: really very painful and unpleasant going in, no problem at all going out. Babies: fun ‘getting them in there’ and I hear that it’s really super very painful and unpleasant going out.
So. Um. EEEeEEEeeeEkk!
