Anyway, the Rockets played today. And lost. 5-3, outshot 53-27 (I kid you not)--and honestly, they were lucky that it was only 5 goals their poor goalie let in, because aside from a strong first period (3-1 Kelowna), their team's showing was abysmal. They wouldn't have deserved the win had it been handed to them on a silver platter.
But it was pretty good hockey--fast, frantic at times even, and just sloppy enough to be a delight to watch. I would of course have preferred hat the Rockets won, but honestly--the game was good enough despite the loss.
The most confusing thing though must have been the fact that they're playing Portland--the Winterhawks. Or short, just the Hawks.
They had an equally abysmal showing: after going down 2-0, they managed to get a 3-2 lead--only to have Seabrook take a dumb penalty that led to the game-tying goal with less than 10 seconds to go, and subsequently lose in overtime.
'Lumbus were the only ones who actually managed to do what they were supposed to: get the W. (Their first playoff win in franchise history! And against Pittsburgh, no less!)
