Go Sabres!

Game 3 is underway on NBC. Let’s go, Buff-a-lo! Jagr sucks!

Bfloblog has an open thread.

UPDATE: Overtime! The Rangers scored first, then thought they had a 2-0 lead, but had an apparent goal was called back on a borderline “kicking” call in the second period… then Buffalo tied it at 1-1 in the third period… and the Rangers’ star Jaromir Jagr whiffed on a clean shot at a wide-open net in the final minutes. So, OT at MSG.

UPDATE 2: Double overtime! And the game has pre-empted NBC’s much-hyped special, “Barbaro: A Nation’s Horse.” Oh, the humanity equinity!

UPDATE 3: F***.

Rangers win, 2-1 in 2 OTs, cutting Buffalo’s series lead to 2-1. Game 4 is also at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.

Oh, and the Barbaro show will air at 9:00 PM Friday on CNBC.

    Hockey is awesome (says the hockey-watching novice), but it’s nigh impossible to watch casually: you have to keep your eyes on the screen at all times. Look away for five seconds, and somebody might score a crucial goal. You just never know. This makes it hard to watch a game while, for example, putting the finishing touches on a paper that’s due tomorrow. Er, hypothetically speaking, that is. :)
