Bullet Point Bonanza - The Sunday Brunch Game Day Skate & Rangers Game Preview and Open Thread

Bullet points for what you missed while wondering how many bullet points HF29 can bullet into one post:

  • So much shit is going down, we're trying to be brief here;
  • Pats are perfect;
  • This is still a hockey blog;
  • For proof, scroll down to read Panger's excellent coverage of Habs draftees playing in the WJC;
  • Of course, mere mention of the WJC here may have jinxed Team Canada;
  • Leafs have goalie issues, Sean Avery suprisingly not killed by Canadian hockey fans;
  • Alex Ovechkin can score goals, and Sens have their own kind of goalie issues;
  • You say you like strippers? OK, here you go:

And the Habs bring the road trip to an end with a stopover at LaGuardia. This road trip has been sponsored by Molson and the FHF, bringing you bullet points since earlier in 2007:

  • 7 PM start, Madison Square Garden. Is it the last building left with no sponsor? How can I make jokes?
  • Pay your cover charge to The Dark Ranger. His avatar scares me;
  • Habs are 3-1-1 on the road trip so far, helping to tie the Sens for the most road wins in the East;
  • Rangers coming off decent wins against the Canes and the Leafs, and are starting to show their offense;
  • Habs have scored 5 goals in 2 straight games for the first time since, I don't know, 1979;
  • Hot sexy Habs - I told you, 5 goals in 2 straight, so everyone! Even Michael Ryder!
  • Huet and his league-leading .931 save % gets the start again;
  • Rhino's broken thumb gonna keep him out 6 weeks minimum, so Streit goes back to D and Chips gets back in the line-up;
  • Hot sexy Rangers - keep your eyes on players for hire Shanny and Gomez (who has points in 11 straight games). And feel free to boo Jagr at your TV;
  • Lundqvist (2.20 GAA and .915 save%) goes for the Blueshirts;
  • Enjoy the game, 'cause Habs don't play again 'til Thursday. Though the FHF are psyched for some outdoor puck.

I'm bulleted out. Let's hear your thoughts in the comments.

Huet is also 7th in GAA, so I'm guessing he'll get the majority of starts from here on in. I hate to agree with Red Fisher, but you gotta play your #1. But we know TFS(tm) can step up if Huet falters or pulls a hammy again.

Heading up to Edm to hang out with the in-laws for New Years, meaning no game for me tonight (they don't even get TSN...I can't believe I married into such a family).

Go Habs Go!

Apparently, Corey Locke is playing tonight, and Saku is resting because of the flu. Did I just hear the word flu? F*ck, we're doomed.
Seriously, it's nice to see Locke finally get a (small) chance to play in the nhl. Wonder what the lines will look like though...

HabsFan29 said...

grrrreg just heard that on CJAD too. good luck Corey! who knows if he even makes it to the game in time

HabsFan29 said...

Broadway baby let's go!

Hahahaha. Corey Locke's equipment didn't make it. Let's gert Chips up to the first line!

grrrreg said...

yep, I said Locke would have a small chance to play in the NHL... That's a near miss!

HabsFan29 said...

feh. not a great goal

stracha, jagr, gomez. how can we compete???

baroque said...

Don't worry about competing on the ice. Have Koivu drool on their water bottles! :)

grrrreg said...

tough period... It's gonna be much harder than in Florida! I still like our chances. They're playing ok, the skating is good.

HabsFan29 said...

Lundqvist is sharp

BIG TITS!!!!

HabsFan29 said...

goddamn i cant enjoy for 2 seconds...

grrrreg said...

well... disappointing ending for this period. But it's a wide open game. And I like to see Lapierre trash talking to Avery.

I'm going to bed, it's getting late here in France. Good night and happy new year!

go habs go

well wherever you are all tonigh you're missing something

baroque said...

"well wherever you are all tonigh you're missing something"

Judging by the boxscore, lots of tits.

(I'm sorry, that was terribly crude - and obvious.)

HabsFan29 said...

baroque i have so many tits jokes ive been dying to use you cant imagine. much cruder than their mere mention

HabsFan29 said...

starting to hold on for dear life.

HabsFan29 said...

no goal, c'mon video review...

longest review EVER

FINALLY. YES!!!

baroque said...

The obviousness is more irritating - I usually try to be a little more innovative than tits jokes. :)

Only a few more minutes...

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK. could see it coming - classic "holding on" goal

HabsFan29 said...

GODDAMMIT

panger76 said...

8/12 ain't bad, but 9 would have been better.

And Baroque I have no shame: Those pair of Tits look awesome in Habs jerseys!

Please be advised that Rhino Burn is a (TM) of Eyes On The Prize (c)2007. Barring a nasty name calling lawsuit, I request the career long use of (TFS), The Franchise Savior, in regards to Carey Price, free of charge, for the duration of his career in exchange for dropping said lawsuit.

Oh fuck it, next time I'm in Montreal, buy me a stripper for my lunch buffet and well callit square!
