Can't Let This Slip By...

Last night, in Denver...

Chris Osgood becomes only the tenth goalie in the history of the NHL to notch 400 wins.  And it couldn't have happened at a better time or in a better place.  Yeah, it would have been nice to get #400 at home, but beating the Hated Avalanche in their own barn is ALWAYS sweet.  Sweeter yet when it's a milestone game for one of the most under-rated goalies in the league.

Congrats, Ozzie!


  1. On a sports note here England retain the Ashes and booted the Aussies into submission. Big whoop! On a friendly note, apologies for not getting around to wishing you a Happy Christmas Buck. The Big Move made life so busy and then suddenly Christmas is upon us and we're off to France for family etc. Hope you had a great one and Happy New Year to you! Back to blogging and catching up with you as soon as poss. Hope all's well with your family, safe happy and well. x

  2. Hell of a goalie. Congrats!

    I've always been a sort-of goalie junkie. For one thing, that's the position I played more often than not. But there's something irresistible about rooting for a position where perfection is striven for and sometimes achieved. My all-time fave was probably Gerry Cheevers (loved the scars mask) but I have a soft spot for journeymen such as Dunc Wilson and the like.

  3. Couldn't of happened at a better time! I'm glad it happened against the Avalanche!

  4. Hey Alison! I understand your plate was full. I look forward to seein' ya back in the 'sphere. Happy New Year!

    Jim: I think goalie is the toughest position in hockey, coz of that perfection thing you mentioned: it's expected. The truly great goalies are few and far between; I think Ozzie is just short of greatness, a la Roy or Brodeur. He's still good, tho.

    Dale: Yep!


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
