But Happy made sure that we weren't going away empty handed...and only moments after Miller made the save of the game. Joey Mac played a solid game.
Man, did Helm work his tail off in OT. I really, really, wish Filppula hadn't decided not to dish it to The Namesake on that two-on-one instead of pulling up and going to his backhand which didn't even lead to a shot on goal...but that's okay - I know he's just rusty.
Buffalo was 5-0 heading into this shootout. We had arguably the best shootout goalie in the NHL against Joey MacDonald - who is only on our squad because Ozzie is hurt. But what the hey...
Shooter one - Stafford tries to go five hole on Joey...stopped.
Shooter two - Datsyuk goes forehand, backhand and beats Miller
Shooter three - Vanek tries beating Joey glove side...stopped.
Shooter four - Hudler banks it off the post, off of Miller, and into the net.
Two points...we'll take it.
