But before we discuss all of the "OMG HOW" moments of that period....
What the hell, man.
For those of you that missed it, Kevan Miller couldn't keep control of the puck and Florida almost capitalized on the turnover that made me physically cringe and ask myself, "Why?"
Now onto something more serious. As a part of the vast network of members of the Marchand Support Squad, watching Marchy go down like that and be slow to limp-skate to the bench was terrifying. Local birthday girl and Marchand fan Asmae weighs in:
@hella_marcella i didn't see it!!!! i don't want to cry. please let him okay i beg you— marchand fan account (@mean_63) March 25, 2016
Understandable. Nobody wants to cry on their birthday.
Now on to the HOW moments.
The only way to describe it would be to use the words of noted Sportsnet employee and token Leafs fan Steve Dangle: "Voodoo, wizardry, and bullshit."
SECOND PERIOD IS A GO!
