  2. NEW YORK – Montreal Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec, Minnesota Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper and Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Oct. 12.

    FIRST STAR – TOMAS PLEKANEC, C, MONTREAL CANADIENS

    Plekanec tied for the League lead with four goals (4-1—5), helping the Canadiens pick up a trio of road wins to open the season with a 3-0-0 record for the first time since 2005-06. He began the season with two goals, including the game-winner with 42.9 seconds remaining in regulation, in a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs Oct. 8. Plekanec then scored Montreal's lone regulation goal in a 2-1 shootout win over the Washington Capitals Oct. 9. He closed the week with 1-1—2 in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Philadelphia Flyers Oct. 11, marking his first three-game goal streak since Oct. 25-29, 2010 (3-1—4). The 31-year-old Kladno, Czech Republic, native is playing in his 10th full NHL season and has compiled 180 264—444 over 682 regular-season games.

As our own juce reminded us, give thanks for (Y)our kids, even if they are as close as being a niece or a neighbour. I spent part of my day with my kids, they are simply wonderful people.

  24. As you may know, I kinda like ripping on the CotU-based mediots. Now that lnet has secured the next 12 years (I think in year 4 they will sell a big portion to tsn) for our eye and earballs, I think they should lead everything they do, web, tv, radio, porn ads, etc. with a disclaimer that all their staff's comments, articles, scribblings, mouthpieces and various assaults on intelligence, should be balanced with the fact that they are MLSE-owned, leaf-biased and will continue to choke the living $hit out of the TML with disregard to any hockey fans that aren't leafools. Sadly, I add Stephen Brunt to tis group.

    Guess I was wrong about the free Center Ice. Can't watch this game, sounds (reads) like that may not be a bad thing.

    Still, Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone and yes, I enjoy my boys everyday and now the grandsons as well.

    Regarding the Habs, I thought they would start the season 0-5. These first three wins were unexpected, by me anyway, and I TOTALLY enjoyed that win over the fucking putrid leaf.

    Later all.

  68. Well, can't argue with winning 3/4 on the road to start the season (esp. 4/6 nights). After 4 games:

    Offence: Flashes of brilliance, but seems lazy.

    Defence: Young and sometimes dumb

    Goal: Not nearly as sharp as needed.

    Now kill the broon and set things right. (Sidenote: Are we taking bets on who they attempt to injure first?)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Sorry guys and gals...I couldn't make it last night, and when you combine that with no juce and an 8 ft. goalie it spells disaster. But on another note - 1 shot on goal in a period is never gonna win you much. Tampa had more shots in the third than the Habs had in the entire game!...just saying...No bring on the B's...

    TSN/CotU mediots, do us a favour and just 'report' that every player in the history of the league is on their way to the leaf. It's even more pathetic because even though these guys 'report' this stuff every other day, when was the last time anyone notable actually went to the leaf? Honestly, I can't think of anyone, whether it's a trade or a signing. KesselCam? Is he really notable?

  80. Its very clear Thursdays game is the season. Its the most important game of the year this week. We should be positive because the TFS TOKER is vapour for goals. Some shifts our five on five looks like the PP for long stretches. We should be worried because our D looks like Elboa. 70% chance it will kill you, and for sure going to make you sick.
