Blog 5 - Thursday, April 23

So I'm here at game 4! Ducks are currently up 2-0 and the energy at the Honda Center is insane!! I love it! Bobby Ryan has been phenomenal in the second period. The entire crowd chanted his name after both goals it is awesome to see how much the fans love him. I have nine minutes until the third period starts.

I had three pages of notes on Game 3 on Tuesday night to put into a blog. But after the Ducks lost, I lost the enthusiasm to put it all into a posting. I just didn't want to think about it! I really hoped we would win that game so I could be here for Game 4 with the chance to see the Ducks sweep the series.

Regardless of the outcome we played hard and it was an intense game. We didn't let up. That Perry penalty at the end just really sucked and ultimately cost us the game. But what's done is done. We are doing well now. Hiller has made some awesome saves. Just gotta keep it up for this last period and we'll be golden!

Alright back to the game. GO DUCKS!!

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge.
