If it was scientifically and surgically possible to inject a video into my bloodstream, I would pay whatever medical bills necessary to complete that operation with this video. My gosh. I knew I desperately missed the NHL during quarantine, but did not realize I desperately missed it THAT much.

I can’t wait to be watching the Stanley Cup Final while sipping a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Am I basic? You bet I am. But a basic b who loves hockey. And hockey is back. Which means it’s a damn good day.
