The Hockey Gods are petty and cruel, and plague mankind with suffering.

Chris Osgood shutting out the Penguins and proving his critics wrong? Marian Hossa held to an assist on a Valtteri Filppula goal? That I could live with.

Instead, it’s Ty Conklin getting the shutout, and Hossa scoring a back-breaking goal.

That’s Fate twisting the knife.
