The Morning Skate returns with a Buttload of Bullet points for your Bs preview and open thread

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of landing on a comet...
  • Sadly, a comet or meteor did not strike the ACC last night. The Laffs humiliated (?) the Bs though, with Rask getting pulled early in the 2nd after sucking like the suckiest suck who ever sucked. On the worse side, Kessel is now the greatest scorer in NHL history after scoring 2G, in the Laffs' 6-1 win. Clod: "We just stunk the joint out";
  • Some night we should all stay up and watch a West coast game because apparently they're having fun out there. We missed a thrilling comeback barnburner, with the Ducks beating the Kings 6-5 in a SO. Darryl Sutter: "It was just a good pond hockey game";
  • Vegas, baby!
  • One stupid broken hand and fighting should be banned forever.
~~~


A second set of bullet points for what you might miss while preparing your fancy dinner / calling for pizza / dieting à la 29 prior to the game...
  • 7:30 PM start. The game looks to be on Sportsnet360 and RDS. Damned if I can keep track of the hockey broadcast roulette;
  • One of my favourite blog names has always been Days of Y'Orr. Beaners can be clever on occasion, who knew?
  • Habs on a 3-game win streak after some tough times there for a while;
  • Bs were on a 6-game win streak (ugh ugh ugh) before last night. Don't forget when they lose again tonight it's the NHL's fault because the schedule makers are out to get the Bs by forcing them to play back to back games, because no one else has to play back to back games;
  • Habs are 0 for their last 22 on the PP. On the plus side, we're not last in the league somehow;
  • GonCH arrived last night, but no one knows if he's playing. CoaCH says they'll have some Starbucks this morning and talk about it. He's playing;
  • The downtown adult entertainment establishments will be jammed with visiting Beaners after the game, so grab a cab and head up to Solid Gold.
OK let's do this thing!

  1. 29 is on the no sleep diet, thanks for the Morning skate 29. They are going to have to rush to get the bronze of Donut Boy done for Christmas. I have tripped over a can of comet many times. The best description of the difficulty was throwing a normal size dart from the north pole at the south pole and hitting a normal sized bullseye there. Never play darts with a Euro!
    Between Vodkov and GonCH we now have all the collective wisdom of Russian's defence. We could invade the Crimera if we wanted.
    Go Habs Go!

  3. Nice effort 29 and early too! I am soooooo glad I don't live anywhere near tranna this morning. I can only imagine how unbelievably sickening it must be. I don't even know what any other team bothers playing out the season - just give 'em the Cup already...

    So - about tonite...Rask usually brings his A-game to the Bell - I can completely understand how he wasn't on form in that shithole they played in last night - no atmosphere and 20,000 fucking no-nothing leaf fans is nothing to look forward to. But I suspect he will be better tonight - and I expect the b's to be as dirty as usual. I am looking forward to seeing what GonCH brings to the PP, as I suspect the Habs might pick up a couple of opportunities tonight. Now someone tell me Timfuckingpeel and chisfuckinglee aren't anywhere near this game tonight...

  6. Good job HF29!
    Speaking of 29, he was on l'AC last night, (he was inducted into the Pantheon des sport du quebec along with Clara Hughes, Rusty Staub (http://www.pantheondessports.ca/pages.asp?id=968) hall of fame said TFS's career in Montreal started with ups and downs, it's very difficult being a goalie in Montreal but he overcame that, is strong, also strong mentally etc..
    The b's are going to be full of piss and vineger tonight, man did they stink last night.
    Go Habs Go!

  7. Nice job, 29.

    What gets me through the very rare occasions that the leaf do something good is reminding myself how much sweeter it'll be watching them crash down. Unfortunately their fans are so insufferably delusional they never really get the point. It's like mocking an idiot; it's fun and easy, but wears thin when you realize they truly do not get the joke.

    GO HABS GO!

  8. By the way, starting yesterday hockey highlights on TSN are now not available on TSN. I only noticed because of the new auto play they have going on every article. Apparently they've never heard of VPNs.

    It's strange though because NBA, MLB and NFL videos were always banned here because, I assume, there is some agreement with some Korean broadcaster for those leagues. But the NHL? Those other ones yeah because of the American army. But trust me, no one is showing hockey. It must have something to do with Rogers, I guess. God forbid Koreans can see highlights of the NHL. No way to make money off that!

    1. I wonder if KmaXXX has the same issue in England? Or did TSN get confused about which one was the bad Korea again.

    2. O-Man - blocked in the UK, The US, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Germany - I use Zen-mate to mask my IP from time to time...and TSN doesn't like any of them. I'm not particularly bothered as it is a tranna led waste of resource that is never going to present much value to "hockey fans". leaf fans will love it but all others can most certainly find proper feed elsewhere. btw - if you do need to be somewhere you are not, Zenmate works a charm. I could never pick up Letterman feeds until I started using it and pretending I was 'merican...

      Delete
    3. And almost no one here watches hockey so I don't see the point of blocking it out either...I do website marketing for a living and I don't understand why they wouldn't want as many people as possible to watch their feeds...but then again - what do I know about tranna sports marketing anyway...fuck 'em - loads of better feeds available to you mate!!

    4. KmaXXX for better or worse you live in the center of th financial universe. Or at least you wrork near the Ciity. For sure thyey do not care about hockey or anything that does not have the potentiel to profit worldwide.

  9. I really do not care about the commercials my dick is beyond salvation. Lets play hockey and giving the player all these commerial breaks gives us better hockey. Lets slow down the pace and give to the true greats. We may not have been able in the past to keep up with these utes buth the commercials made GonCHar a necessity.

  18. Here's the whole article, it's pretty good. I got sick of the shitty English broadcasts 10 games into the season so I shelled out $60 for the French season package (I'm in Toronto). This overrides the regional blackouts and gave me my RDS back.

    2. I only watched other stations when the game was not on RDS, The last game I did was on hnic, I forget which Hab got a tripping penalty, but they didn't even show a replay of it. I can't say I ever remember RDS not showing a reply on any penalty regardless which team was sent to the box, I don't know if hnic usually does this?
