"Ladies and gentlemen, on stage for your dancing pleasure, the Ottawa Senators" - Game Preview and Open Thread

Waiting in line details - 7:30 PM start, Scotiabank Place, beautiful downtown Kanata, ON. On TV: RDS and RDS-HD in French, Ottawa local TV A Channel in English. Montreal English radio CJAD, Montreal French radio CKAC, Sens radio The Team 1200 . Last season, Sens took the season series 5-3. Newly-signed Senator Randy Robitaille returns home from Russia with his pregnant wife and dreams of hometown glory.

Pay your cover charge to - Five for Smiting of course. In case you've been under a rock or on a smack binge, we've got a little wager going on tonight's game. Winner gets to urinate on the ice of the other team's rink, er, post unedited on the other blog.

Hot sexy Habs to watch - Price gets the start. All eyes on him. And how will Kovy react after playing great last game then getting in the middle of a (media created) firestorm.

Hot sexy Sens to watch - Spezza, Heatley, Alfredsson: 11, 10, and 9 points respectively. Martin Gerber has been stellar with a 5-1, 1.99 GAA and .941 save %. Ray Emery's wrist who?

Skanky Habs to watch - anyone who is supposed to put the puck in the net (see esp. M. Ryder).

Skanky Sens to watch - when you're 6-1 and leading the NHL, not much to complain about. Their PP has been pretty weak, just below 15%.

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - if you're ready to go out after sitting in traffic for 45 minutes after the game, The Bare Fax is the crème de la crème. Very centrally located, very beautiful women, very classy establishment.

Watching the game? At the game? Listening? Imagining the game in your head? Let's hear your dirty, dirty thoughts in the comments.

mad mike said...

… Sacré bleu, you guys must be share holders in an adult entertainment establishment to get pics like this. Her RBK dress is hanging on by her …

Good luck with the wager, surely we will get a link should we pull it off.

The Forum said...

With a pic like that, who really cares about hockey...too bad they're fake (and now the debate begins :-)

HabsFan29 said...

oh it's no debate, they're fake.

or is the debate which we prefer

HabsFan29 said...

alrighty kids once again I am being dragged to a bar to have a 5 à 7 beverage, forcing me to miss the 1st period. grrrrrr.

see you soon. we've got a bet to win dammit.

panger76 said...

We have hope! The Saviour is in nets.
Going to try to duck out of work a little early to catch the game. Otherwise we'll cathc up after the first.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Helloooo Newman. BWA-HA-HA! I hope you're ALL PREPARED TO BE-- Hey. When was Lisa Kudrow a stripper??

Habsfan10 said...

It's her twin, Ursula. And Ursula's twins too, as you can plainly see.

lawyergirl77 said...

Hellooooo everyone! I left work "early" to get home in time for the game. If Mr. LG77 can't be here, I might as well spend it all with you...

... and the lovely Ursula. *shudder* If you chucked her into a pool, do you think she'd float? Would you even care if she was wearing a white t-shirt??

Senators Lost Cojones said...

LG77: While I have no colour preferences, SCORES!! WOO-HOO!!

lawyergirl77 said...

Fuck.

Breezer gets a penalty. And the Sens score on their first or second shot.

lawyergirl77 said...

SLC - I just got a gloating text msg from my stepfather who is at the game. Between you and him, I think it's going to be a looong night...

Senators Lost Cojones said...

LG77: Ahem, as I was saying...While I have no colour preferences, no. No it wouldn't.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Ur fathr smrt guy.

lawyergirl77 said...

At least the danse à 10 line is back (Kovy Grabs Tits).

SLC - I dunno... A wet t-shirt would just enhance the lopsidedness. ;-)

Matt D said...

On the plus side, Garth Murray won't be playing for a while. So that's nice.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Wow. It would appear that your Saviour may be the real deal. I say this with a mix of fear and envy.

lawyergirl77 said...

FUCK!!! Higgins wuz robbed!! Awesome patience with the puck. And Greek Ligtening gets robbed too!

When the hell did Gerber get good??

lawyergirl77 said...

I'm really happy at how well the Koivu-Higgins-Ryder line is playing lately... They've got to find the back of the net at some point soon - they're working too damned hard for it not to pay off. *hopeful look*

lawyergirl77 said...

HOLY SHIT! Go Tenderness! Take stupid shots and maybe they'll go in!!!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Aw crap. Wait...review??

lawyergirl77 said...

That was much more Gerber's fuckup than Gui's goal, by the way... Although I'm happy for the kid - at least now he may be able to get his head in the game a little bit more...

WTF - why is the play under review?

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Aw, Son of Crap.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

To anyone who has the misfortune of watching this on A-Channel Ottawa, please accept my sincere apologies for the play-by-play guys. While Dean Brown's homer-ism is merely embarrassing, Gord Wilson is infuriating to the point where I want to gouge my eardrums out with a spork.

fezworth said...

Salut all.. Just arrived, What'd I miss? 1-1 I see, Demers & co are still discussing Kovy & Carbo? Boring.

lawyergirl77 said...

I have an ear-gouging spork with the CBC logo on it... No matter how bad the A-Channel may be, at least they aren't HNIC.

You could just watch it in French! The RDS signal is really good this year, even in shitomax (i.e. non-HD).

lawyergirl77 said...

fezworth - The Saviour is playing well, and it's pretty decent up-and-down hockey, so far.

RDS needs to STFU and let. go. of the whole Kovy thing. They're making the British Papparazzi look restrained with all of their obsessive bullshit.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

LG77: Sadly, RDS is a premium channel out here in the wilds of Eastern Ontario where Bell ExpressVu will control what you see and YOU WILL LIKE IT MORTAL! Sorry...sorry. The kool-aid must be kicking in.

HabsFan29 said...

Good evening everyone! Nice to see you all here

Got a couple of beverages in my system I admit, but the recap on the interweeb said Gui! scored. Am I hallucinating???

fezworth said...

I have to say, I just LOVE how bored Price looks while making saves. Even when he bobbles/juggles it a bit, there's no panicking, there's no silliness. Just calmly reaches out an d smothers it. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.

HabsFan29 said...

clear the fucking puck dammit. yeesh

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Ahem...and we all "jump" for joy.

lawyergirl77 said...

HF29 - how was the 5 à 7? Was it that ridiculous AJBM Awards cocktail?

'Been making me some din-din for the past 10 minutes of game time. Are we really playing like shit or are PierreetYvon making it sound like the sky is falling, again?

Oh, and I'm too lazy to rewind the PVR - was the Sens goal any good or did Pleks really fuck up?

lawyergirl77 said...

fezworth - it's one of the things I love about Price too (and to a lesser extent Huet). They're the most Zen goalies I've EVER seen!! WTF - goalies are supposed to be total headcases!!

HabsFan29 said...

LG I avoid AJBM 5 a 7's like the plague generally. Was just with a friend I havent seen in a while

Pleks just screwed up not clearing the puck. But he's tried to make it up on the other end

FUCK FUCK FUCK

HabsFan29 said...

FINALLLY.

fezworth said...

Wow... that's the best garbage goal ever :P

lawyergirl77 said...

Dammit - why did Ryder have to score, now we're gonna lose!!

(I kid, I kid... I hope!)

HF29 - I avoid them too, unfortunately I got the gears from several members of my firm today. They're, shall we say, heavily involved...

Damion said...

pinball wizards...

fitting that Latendresse and Ryder's first goals of the season are lucky.

HabsFan29 said...

JEEBUS! nice almost own-goal there Komo

but the Franchise Saviour just calmly stops it. Zen indeed.

HabsFan29 said...

Kostitsyn-Grabovski-Kostopolous. The "Thats a Mouthful Line"

seems a reasonably even game if you ask me

lawyergirl77 said...

RDS interviewer: "Is it frustrating to not be getting goals?"

Higgins answer: "It wouldn't be a big deal if we were winning."

Should have said: "Nah, fuck it - scoring goals is overrated."

Just when I thought these RDS Intermission interviewers couldn't get any dumber

Senators Lost Cojones said...

What you missed while arguing with Firefox that, yes, Blogger actually exists.

I was in the middle of a brilliant comment about Heater's breakaway goal when *pffft* the interweb disappeared. Karma saving me from making a fool of myself? I think so.

lawyergirl77 said...

LOL - I still like it as the "Greek Lightening Grabs Tits" line. The new DÀ10 line! (Although I thought Kovy Grabs Tits was in full effect tonight - did I miss something while I was making dinner??)

The Forum said...

Fezworth - sounds like you're on the Price bandwagon...welcome aboard!

HabsFan29 said...

LG the RDS interview KILLED me. I've watched it twice on the PVR already

for most of the 2nd Gui was playing with Kovy and Pleks. "juggling" the lines is no longer a sufficient verb to describe what Carbo does.

The Forum said...

habsfan29 - to answer your earlier question, the debate is about preference.

I'm a traditionalist - give me the real deal

lawyergirl77 said...

I don't agree with Brunet - Grabs doesn't look *that* lost out there. He's playing his ass off. He's always moving out there and is ridiculously fast, especially live. I don't think he should get sent down, yet...

HabsFan29 said...

Forum they both have their advantages. I can't choose.

SLC Karma's a bitch, baby. Habs fans know. Just ask the Forum ghosts you talk to.

This should be a damn good 3rd period

lawyergirl77 said...

HF29 - *snort* true dat (re: Carbo).

Man that shot of Breezer staring up at the scoreboard was not pretty... He looked like a frickin' guppy with his mouth hanging open.

fezworth said...

Wow... I didn't realise that Heatley had blindsided Brisebois like that before his goal. Cojones, that's some pretty good karma you've got there.

fezworth said...

Price really has Hamr and Komo's numbers tonight. They can't put ANYTHING past him!

lawyergirl77 said...

fezworth - LMAO!! It's like they forgot we switched sides in-between the periods.

Kind of how it's like we're NOT on the powerplay right now...

lawyergirl77 said...

THIS NEW REF FUCKING SUCKS!!! LYNCH HIM NOW!!!!

I bitch and moan about refs like any good Habs fan, and may or may not be known to yell out "VENDUUUU" during home games, but this is getting ridiculous

Damion said...

Ah! Vendu. I yelled that at the Nassau Coliseum once and was told to go back to Europe... Long Island's education system apparently cut back on geography.

fezworth said...

TSN had that Own Goal Top 10 the other night. There was a Japanese player on there that I just loved watching.

Snapped a shot past the goalie with ablomb. He started to raise his hands in trimumph, and you could almost pinpoint the moment he realised he'd just scored on his own goalie, because instead of completing the raising of arms, he changed their direction and brought them to his (now anguished) face, while also falling to his knees. It was bloody hilarious.

As a bonus, I gather that was the game-winning goal that ensured Japan's relegation to the lower echelons of international hockey.

lawyergirl77 said...

Long Island has an education system? I thought kids there learned everything they needed to know in their local mall's food court...

lawyergirl77 said...

Why are the RDS guys so hard on Pleks tonight? he hasn't been playing shitty at all, and yet they're making doom-and-gloom pronouncements about how he's "not the same player he was in the second half of last season."

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Fez: I can understand his anguish. Otherwise they would have had the chance to lose 14-0 to France during the next Olympic qualifier. As for Karma...I chose discretion being the better part of valour.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Uh-oh...

HabsFan29 said...

this roller coaster is making me sick

Senators Lost Cojones said...

SPEZZA!!

lawyergirl77 said...

Woo hoo!!!

and fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!

lawyergirl77 said...

Greek Lightening looks pissed (and rightly so - that was a huge fuckup in his own zone that lead to the 4th goal)

HabsFan29 said...

Habs are kings of the big fuckups in their own zone tonight.

lawyergirl77 said...

LOL - did anyone catch the vaguely amused smile on Carbo's face when he asked for the timeout??

Streit - WTF was that pass along your blue line??

Damion said...

brilliant. kovy called a time-out...

ta. bar. nac.

HabsFan29 said...

just too many mistakes.

start writing SLC

Matt D said...

SLC: please be gentle

Senators Lost Cojones said...

So...um...is FHF more a fan of the velvet rope/fuzzy handcuff treatment, or would you prefer the whole ballgag/bullwhip treatment.

Strictly for research purposes you understand.

lawyergirl77 said...

Once again, Ryder scores in a losing cause. (Not that I blame him for this at all - it's just keeping his streak alive).

lawyergirl77 said...

Panger definitely prefers the fuzzy handcuffs. *cough*

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Believe me when I say that whatever emerges on the FHF site will be meant purely in the spirit of jest and sportsmanship.

After all, I don't think I can handle this seven more times.

See you soon...gentlemen. :)

lawyergirl77 said...

WTF - Gui may have scored, but he didn't deserve the 3rd star...

Matt D said...

At the rink, all 3 stars were Sens. In a one-goal game. Equally WTF.

HabsFan29 said...

so 3 losses in a row. llok up everyone, is the sky falling?

HabsFan29 said...

*look up. note to self: don't type when annoyed

lawyergirl77 said...

*ducks piece of sky*

Forum said...

it sure feels like it is...

this team is disorganized
line combos make no sense
Chip in the press box
Kosto's line on the ice in the late stages of a tie game

all points to one thing...

Forum said...

one more thing:

Grabs: 403 west to Main Street, left to Copps Coliseum

MaxLap, seat 4d to Dorval
