5 in a row! We ain't singin' no Blues. Game 29 v St. Lou.



Hey, get rhythm when you play the Blues
Come on, get rhythm when you play the Blues
Get a gotta score feelin' in your bones
Strap blades on your feet and get gone
Get rhythm when you play the Blues

An equipment boy never gets low down
But he's got the dirtiest job in town
Bendin' low at the peoples' skates
On the end of the bench openin' the gates
Well, I asked him while he sharped by blade
What should I do when I see the team fade
He grinned as he raised his little head
Grabbed a water bottle and then he said


Get rhythm when you play the Blues
Come on, get rhythm when you play the Blues
A jumpy rhythm makes you feel so fine
It'll shake all the trouble from your worried mind
Get rhythm when you play the Blues

Get rhythm when you play the Blues
Come on , get rhythm when you play the Blues
Get a rock the other team in your bones
Put blades on your feet and get gone
Get rhythm when you play the Blues

Well, I sat down to listen to the equipment guy
And I felt like I could touch the sky
As I watched kidA zig left and right
He took a CH towel and held it tight
He stopped once to wipe the sweat away
I said you're a mighty fine man to be-a workin' that way
He said I like it with a big wide grin
Kept on a poppin' and he said again

Get rhythm when you play the Blues
Come on, get rhythm when you play the Blues
Hey, you know BBQ earns 5K per shift?
He'll give you a twelve million dollar lift
Get rhythm when you play the Blues

  3. I'm hoping the magic Habs pic will bring Patches to life. Apparently he was the only forward held without a point in the 10-1 game.

  5. Nice parody St P! Speaking of blues, our boy Vodkov still has an in for the Olympics, despite the Russkies not being allowed and all - Team Canada!

    NOW GYFHG!!! Da Broons couldn't win last night, so we're still in Position #3 in the Atlantic.

  17. For some reason the game is not available in my region in English, 'stie. It's because my region sells out 21,273 seats every game?

    I'm not watching but I know what the score is. Just a thought, don't get caught up in the SFU generated hype of a 5 game winning streak. There's always a 6 game losing streak around the corner. This team is still dreadful at center and awful on defence. Even the dumpster diver knows this and admitted as much back in September or October with his bubble team comment. He's already planning for next season hence all the cap space. He knows this year is already a write-off and is hoping to get Mr. Molson a couple of extra home dates.

    1. One game at a time. Boys started slow and remain somewhat inconsistent but TFS™ troika of saves got them going.

  23. I will take the loser point. St Lou is not just cycling , they are setting up designated no hab lanes and having their way with us.

  24. They played a whole 30 minutes. Deserved loss.

  25. 2 fast goals against again! Gotta knock that shit off!

  26. Busy getting crushed at curling last night. Heard some on the radio on the way home and caught most of the 3rd. Sounds like I didn't miss much in the first 2 periods. Thought they played very well in the 3rd for the most part. Crappy those cross crease goals that go off a defender's skate. Fodder for all the pundits that said "buy they played a bunch of crappy teams" during that win streak. Wins are wins and the fact they are beating 'those crappy teams' (which they were one of just over a week ago by the way) that happen to be divisional opponents is actually very significant and important when it comes to the final standings. But I look forward to reading all the "I told you so" articles this evening.

      I find now that the leaf are better than the Canadiens, the SFU have actually backed off on trying to drag them down or prove that they aren't as good as their record. The homers can actually focus on their own squad (leaf).

  27. I did not know Big Bird was D coach for Blues. Their smallest D is 6 foot three. This is the reality we face. We could have won last night, but in a seven game series, nope no way no how.

    1. The Blues know talent and greatness when they see it. That is a pretty decent organization and I'd like to see them win a cup. I think they are the only other team besides the leaf that have been in the league since (the fall of) '67 that has never won a cup. Does that sound right?

      Of the Original 6 expansion teams, Cup winners are Pittsburgh, Philthy, LA and Minnesota. Minnesota's win is as convoluted as it gets = Oakland Seals became California Golden Seals (white skates, remember) became Cleveland Barons who then merged with Minnesota North stars who became Dallas Stars who won in 1999 (Brett Hull toe in the crease goal).

      The next two expansion teams in 1970 were Buffalo and Vancouver who have been to the finals but never won (Vancouver got jobbed by colon campbell and the buttman in 2011). Buffalo lost to Dallas (see above) and Philthy in 1975.

      The next two expansion teams in 1972 were the Islanders and Atlanta Flames who have both won, although Atlanta won as Calgary in 1989 (Grrrrrrrr.........).

      So yeah, St. Louis is due. I am friends with their QMJHL scout, a former co-worker of mine. I'd like to see them win a Cup. Their goalie, Jake Allen, is a local kid from Fredericton who played in the Midget AAA system here in New Brunswick.

    3. And Larry coaches them!

    4. Good stuff the M. Later (74?) KC joined, moved to Colorado to become the Rockies and then on to NJ as the Devils. Some French Canadian goalie might have won them a cup or two as well.

  28. BBQ must have been watching the curling Olympic trials during the intermission and channeled his inner Brad Gushue on that first goal of his. I've never seen anything like it.
