And this was Penner's prayer: "O Yahweh, our God, Creator of both good teams and bad ones, you are strong and you are kind and you are merciful. You alone are just, almighty, and eternal. And so rescue us from the evil that would be the Stars making the playoffs. You have taken delight in destroying your once chosen team this year, and in raising up a remnant here; so then accept the Oilers as a sacrifice on behalf of all people who hate the Stars, and make sure that the playoffs remain a holy place reserved for teams that are actually good."
Note: The game today starts at 1:00. I won't be around for the game today, but scoring chances for the games against Detroit and Columbus should be posted later tonight. If you're looking for a live GDT, I'll refer you to Jewels from the Crown (although I'm likely to post my observations in this thread when I get around to watching the game).
