Well, at least we were competitive in this one. In what's becoming a theme in these playoffs, my Hurricanes dropped Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals last night to Pittsburgh, 3-2. I say it's becoming a theme because Carolina lost their openers in the first two rounds to New Jersey and Boston before bouncing back to win those series. Those first two were blowouts, but the Canes played tough last night, and probably would have won the game if not for a superhuman performance from Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, especially in the first period. Game 2 is Thursday night, and if form holds, we've got them right where we want them. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway.
I'm a follower of Christ, an heir of the Reformation, and a Baptist - in that order. My wife Heather and I have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of a little girl. I work as an Aviation Technical Publications editor. From 2005 to 2009 I served as Minister to Youth at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and I'm now actively pursuing church planting.
Soli Deo Gloria!
