Your daily dose of morning links features Optimus Reim, Alexander Ovechkin, and powerplay rankings
Last night, I watched the Leafs game live. Then, I watched highlights of the game another three times. Today, I'll likely watch them again another three or four times. When the Leafs put together a game like they did against Washington (the power play aside), you just have to drink it in all day. Bask in the glory that OH MY GOD WE PLAY BOSTON TOMORROW WE ARE SCREWED OH SO SCREWED TOTALLY... Hey, wait.
Say, Phil, you wouldn't by any chance feel like breaking out of your
slump statistiluck nightmare with a four or five goal game, would you? Just think about it, that's all I ask.
For now, let's just enjoy the fact that rather than cough up a lead, our favourite team actually turned the tables on a talented squad, and picked up two points rather handily.
On to the links.
