Awesome. October is over.
As hilarious as it was to make the fail for nail jokes, we're 1/8 of the way through the season now, and the losing isn't really funny anymore. A new month is a perfect time to start a new winning streak, to ruin some other teams' winning streaks, and to just generally turn the ship around. Ottawa has won six games straight. Tim Thomas is historically good against Ottawa. Just saying.
