  4. The Halifax Mooseheads are looking to go 12 - 0 in the playoffs tonight as they advance to the President's Cup final (and then hopefully on to the Memorial Cup). Let's hope the Habs have a similar run!

  13. heh, last week the CotU mediots were quote him saying hockey should be played "the maple leaf way", tonight O'Burned is in the press box. At least Dou$harek kept the seat warm for him.

  16. Should the Habs get home-ice for Round One (and I know the CH is too classy to do it) and face the mediots' 'dreaded' leaf, the ceremonial puck-drop should be given to Kerry Fraser. A fun way to fuck with the fuckhead's heads who still, to this day, see their leaf beating the Habs in 1993.

  17. Just caught a bit of the Bolt/leaf game last night before my brand new Bell Fibe installation went pffffft. Fuck me. Phoned Bell and told them if this happens during the playoffs they can defuckinginstall it.

    But I digress, the part I saw were the TSN talking heads simply giddy with excitement with the leaf's "jump" and energy during the first. When I heard the final score this morning it made my day.

    Anyhoo, GYFHG!! Get the fucking point!!

    1. Had it on in the background. Took tsn until a 3-2 score before they got the blue yips. They wouldn't STFU about TFS™ vs. reimer ('Reims'). (Also, darren pang still sounds like a deep seeded racist who is deeply rooted in his racism, you'd think he'dve learned by now.)

    1. Maybe but the Jets aren't great to begin with and the boys are trying to get their game back. Not exactly must see.

    2. I'd argue TFS™ is the only intense thing about the game.

      Delete
    3. +1. Not the angry TFS stares of the past but he hasn't looked pleased with things around him after the goals. Bringing a strong game but notice the the difference between the last two goals. On the RBQ tally, half of the Jets were playing goalie. On the Wheeler "goal", the Habs defense was sitting on Price. I am happy to see him in good form again though.

  47. So on a team with two Swiss players and Cheese, why does Markov have the most holes? Love the guy, love what he has done but thinking that Tinordi should have been in to give Vodkov the rest as opposed to replacing Weber. What a momentum extreme.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kinda agree. Maybe they asked Vodkov and he chose to play?

      Delete
    2. Good point. I know he wants to mentally play all he can to feel back in the game after missing so much but coach's call here. MTL needs him but needs him at as close to 100% as he can. We know he is gonna catch all kinda hellish elbows and knees in the Leaf bog.

      Delete
    3. Sounds reasonable but I think the core D needs to get their ducks in a row before the playoffs.

      Delete
    4. Yup. Even Gio needed the rest. Why call up 8 Dogs and not play them? A win would be great, the assured extra point(s) nice but coaching is weirdly out of synch.

    3. Exactly what I thought. Don't forget it was Cooke that knocked Marky out in the 2010 playoffs.

    4. To up the comic nerd factor, looks like Karlsson took Patches' Spidey-sense as he has been throwing some odd passes around tonight. Like his hustle and like it better when he is not tethered to DD.

  70. Kadri's a little cheap shot artist, eh? Hacking away at the Florida guy and then tries to run away when things get serious. Fraser of course tackles the guy from behind as goons do. Wonder if HNIC will do a piece on Kadri disrespecting veterans and learning his 'place'. Probably not, but hopefully Cherry sticks his tongue down his throat again. It apparently sucked his goal scoring capabilities right out of him.

    *I still believe that in 2-3 years Kadri will be a 3rd liner on Nashville and HNIC/TSN will mispronounce his name when he visits town like he's some stranger. See also: Stajan, Matt

    OK, the game started a little late down here (9:00pm) so I bailed after the second period, golf season finally starts today, WOOOOT!! and I'm teeing off this morning. My observations: the defence was a mess last night but Price seemed more focused so good on him. More of that on Saturday night please.

    Moe, I noticed an article in the G&M yesterday by Mirtle, leaf control Northeast division. What presumptuous dicks, WTF, were the leaf were going to win all their games and Habs and B's lose theirs?
