It might have been the coolest hockey game I've ever watched, and I really hope the NHL keeps playing this game in the future. I'd even love to see it in Buffalo every year, kind of like how you expect to see the Cowboys and Lions every year on Thanksgiving. But in the end, we still ended up with another disappointing loss by a Buffalo sports team on a national stage. Oh well, at least I have another reason to hate Crosby.
Regardless, kudos to the NHL, the Sabres and Pens, and the city of Buffalo for putting on a great show. Watching an outdoor hockey game go to a shootout in the snow isn't something you get to see every day.
