First socks of the year & a Wild win
These are my first socks of 2008. I actually re-made them for a friend of my daughter. I had knit them with the two toe deal for wearing with sandals. After getting the thumbs down from the aforementioned daughter and thinking I would never wear them that way, they just hung around waiting for a purpose. A friend of DD saw my blog on her computer and asked if I would make her some socks. I undid the toes and ripped them back for length and then re-knit them with regular toes.
First period: (0-0)Pretty boring. Could've used a cup of coffee to stay awake.
Second period: (2-0)Much better. Especially since we started scoring. First goal was a beauty by Pavol Demitra. Second goal by James Sheppard, his third of the season.
Third period: (4-1)The Wild's third goal was a bit strange. Belanger threw what looked like a soft shot toward the goal, and it went in. Josh Harding got an assist on that one. Finally, Gaborik got his 25th of the season. The Coyotes killed Josh's shut out on a goal by Doan. To be fair, it was a 5 on 3. Nick was in the box for tripping and then Burns made a rather reckless play that resulted in him being sent to the box for tripping as well. Score came with 2 seconds left in Nick's penalty. It was sad.
Three stars of the game:
Third Star: Gaborik with a goal and an assist
Second Star: Demitra with a goal and an assist
First Star: Harding with an assist and 27(?) saves.
Next game is at home versus the Flames on Wednesday.
