You can play 58 minutes of perfect football. You’ll probably have a 97% chance of winning. Forty-five perfect minutes of basketball and you’re at maybe 92%.
With hockey, 58 perfect minutes is about a 75% chance.
Do the math. It’s the sport that least rewards good play.
Great play from the team. Tough loss. Plekanec was revived. Schneider has a hell of a lot of velocity on his point shot and some great defensive and passing skills. He’s even better than before.
Kovalev watched from his home. Or somewhere.
Maybe Shakespeare had it right. My liver feels un peu lourd.
