I'm going to come out and say it: I'm rooting hard for Edmonton tonight. Check oot the home crowd singing O Canada before Game 3, eh?

Who needs a singer? Stunning performance by the Rexall Place crowd. Look for the guy on the right belting it out about 0:58 into it, followed by Ducks goalie Bryzgalov's sheepish grin. Good stuff. Meanwhile here in the US, we merely mouth the words to the National Anthem, and start cheering 30 seconds before it's over as if to say, "Get it over with already!" God bless those crazy Canucks!

Meanwhile, despite numerous defensive injuries, the Sabres are digging deep and winning games, besting Carolina 4-3 last night to take a 2-1 series lead. By the way, I had no idea that Hurricanes fans call themselves "Caniac Nation". Ugh. I blame the idiots that follow the Red Sox for that.

UPDATE: Hoping for a Game 4 spark, the Ducks are going with a change in goal starting 2003 Conn Smythe Trophy winner J.S. Giguere tonight to avoid the sweep. Broom sales were reported to be brisk in the greater Edmonton area today.
