Dominator · I haven’t been watch­ing that much hock­ey this year (basketball’s my win­ter game) and I hadn’t seen Ot­tawa play, and I hadn’t seen one of the new-rules shootout­s. Un­til this evening; on TV mind you, but if they were all go­ing to be like this I’d see about get­ting some tick­et­s. The Canucks got away with the win, bare­ly, four deep in the shootout. They ac­tu­al­ly didn’t play as well I’ve seen them in a cou­ple of oth­er games this year, but still it was good hock­ey on both sides. If Van­cou­ver had been play­ing a team that had an ac­tu­al hu­man be­ing in goal, as op­posed to Do­minik Hašek, the Se­na­tors would have been toast. I’ve al­ways thought that the shootouts in soc­cer were lame and pa­thet­ic and stupid, but let me tell you, a hock­ey shootout is first-rate fun. We’re start­ing to get the oc­ca­sion­al high-def game, too; I may be­come a fan.
