I was debating if I should even bother with a writeup right now. For any of you who live down south like myself, you’ll know the pollen counts have been through the roof. I’m sneezing every 4 or 5 seconds for the past hour or so, so it’s really tough to string together coherent thoughts when you’re battling mother nature like most of us down here are.

This was a fun game tonight. I had a good feeling going into it, and I was rewarded by yet another stellar effort by the boys in blue, but this time rewarded with a win, and some lucky bounces of our own. It’s always nice to see Uncle Daddy have a craptastic game here in MSG so our fans can serenade him with the Maaarrrtttyyy chants. I love that. It seriously brings joy to my life to see that man fail. Does that make me a sociopath? Meh, whatever.

Of course, it’s tough not to be a little worried about Henrik Lundqvist, again giving up some soft goals. Well, maybe not soft per-say, but goals Henrik Lundqvist, when he is on top of his game, never has a problem with. On top of the the way pucks are coming off of him makes you think the guy is really fighting it right now. Henrik picked a bad time of year to go into a funk.

I’ve been a doubter of Mats Zucarello-Aasen for a long while, but the kid is slowly proving me wrong. He seems to have improved his skating rather substantially since the last time we’ve seen him, and on top of that, he’s learned how to play the boards a little better. Granted, he’s no Carl Hagelin, but he’s doing a good job against players quite a bit larger than himself. Good for the hobbit, I hope he keeps it up.

A big time un-sung hero of this season has been John Mitchell. I know the guy doesn’t get a lot of credit, seeing as how he’s not putting up good numbers. But for a 4th line guy, he’s got some good hands, some good size, and a great work ethic. I really like him, a lot.

OK, I gotta get to bed, this sneezing is driving me crazy, maybe it’ll stop if I lie down.
