IIIiteracy: 8 June 2013
A recap of tonight’s Conference III playoff action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:
It’s halfway through the first and we are doing full-on Stanley Cup Final analysis.
Hey, hey Dwight King shorthanded.
Up three games to one and up 2-1 late in the second, the analysis get trenchant. And early in the third, Anze Kopitar finally found the score sheet on the power play and we’re all tied up. Only answer: “consperisy.”
Shaw draws a cross-check from whichever Green or Greene plays for LA and the folks in Chicago think it should have been four, but it’s not because the cross-check rule doesn’t allow for a double-minor.
And my oh my, the Kings tie it up with less than 10 seconds remaining. People should have watched the Leafs-Bruins series.
AND THE YAPPER GOES DOWN. OH THANK GOD IT’S BACK.
A trick for Mr Patty Kane and this one’s over in double OT.
And Chicago-Boston, as you’ll hear 1,979 times before Wednesday is the first Original Six Stanley Cup Final since 1979 (growing the game to new places is important, so we’ll have emphasize teams that were in the league more than 40 years ago; kids love that stuff).
