That was awesome.
I freaking love this kid.
He knows we need him desperately and is going to come down from the fortress of solitude in the far North like Superman and raise everyone up.
I think the hockey gods may finally let us out of our richly deserved Black Sunday/tanking 13 years in the hole sentence.
Separately: the Dom-era Sabres had a winger named Geoff Sanderson, who was from Hay River, NW Territories (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hay+River,+NT,+Canadaemail@example.com,-124.8979038,5z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x53c58eb5ea20b66d:0x496a27b76b46d0ea!8m2!3d60.816218!4d-115.7853653?hl=en). He was one of the fastest guys the Sabres have ever had -- legend has it that he developed his speed to keep safe from the polar bears. To my knowledge, Sanderson was, until Cozens, the Sabre from the most remote hometown.
(BTW, I find it a bit interesting that the NW Territories are East of the Yukon.)
The clouds are lifting. It's going to get better now.
