Went to Providence Bruins Worcestrer Sharks last night.
P Bruins looked really good as a unit. They were up 3-0 before I even got into the building (yes, busy drinking up the street). I can't really say anyone made any impression on me that they hadn't already. It seems like the better players are the same, but the bottom of the lineup has upped their game.
First time I've seen Svedberg play.
He made a huge impression on me. OK, this is all normal goalie ritual stuff... between periods he goes out near center ice and makes little twitches like imaginary saves. Skates toward his own net and then sprints into the crease.
All normal goalie ritual stuff. Except that if it wasn't normal goalie ritual stuff I have the impression that he would be doing that anyway. As a matter of fact I have the impression if hockey wasn't invented he would have found a 4x6 cage, get some baseball catcher's equipment and get friend to try to throw rocks past him or something.
I can't point to anything specific, but I think he's stark raving nuts.
I understand why he opened the door on they guy now, somehow it makes more sense.
He doesn't say anything unusual in this interview, but just something about him makes me think he's out of his mind.
Yes, all goalies are nuts, but I think he's a special case.
This might work out well. I think he likes getting shot at.
