"Ladies and gentlemen, on stage for your dancing pleasure, the New York Rangers" - Game Preview and Open Thread

Waiting in line details - 7 PM start, MSG. Mmm, Chinese food. Patriots are coming off 16 straight regular season wins and are looking to capture their 4th Super Bowl in the last... oh right, hockey. Habs are 5-0-2 in their last seven. Rangers are 0-4-1 in their last five. Trap, trap! The last time the Rangers won was against the Habs on December 30th. No really, trap!

Pay your cover charge to - turb. Someone needs to eplain that reference to me, but Matt over there has got a nice bitter streak to him.

Hot sexy Habs to watch - The 4th line, aka Slowinski and the two D. I still don't like sitting Greek Lightning, but this line was great against the Bruins. I got a good feeling about Kovy reacting to his all-star snub and being back in NYC and going nuts.

Hot sexy Rangers to watch - uh, no one? Scott Gomez is going to the all-star game, so I guess him. Lundqvist has been mediocre (and unlucky) lately, but he's got a 2.41 GAA for the season.

Skanky Habs to watch - the old "first" line, Koivu + whoever, looked like shit against the Bruins.

Skanky Rangers to watch - see above re their record in the last five. Most of 'em. And don't forget to boo Jagr at the TV; remember, he can hear you.

Line-up shuffle du jour - no word so far except Huet in nets. Habs sent Corey Locke back to Steel Town after his cup of coffee in The Show. Er, sip of coffee.

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - Scores. The only New York club that matters.

Let's hear your dirty, dirty thoughts in the comments.

well i looked up turb and it's slang for masturbate. really? i know 100 synonyms for it, but i never used that one.

if that's your reference, Matt, well done sir.

Matt said...

Well, unfortunately for the Rangers, masturbation isn't what I meant behind the turb name. They need some kind of... um... release. It's actually a reference to tuaw.com, which is a favorite blog of mine.

I have a bad feeling about tonight's game... I better get started on a banner with a paper bag over the fucking Rangers logo....

matt I have a bad feeling about any game, so we'll see

alright pre-game! time to drink...

looks like Ottawa-Wings are on CBC in most of the country. Mtl-NY is only on in Montreal and East. Ottawa-Detroit??? pshaw, they're no good.

well at least the football game is about to start...

Flying Toaster said...

Man, the Habs are as flat as Celine Dion. This is an ugly, ugly game. But that's why i NEVER liked announcers mention a team is on a losing streak. Because it seems that whenever a team is on a losing streak, they break it against the habs. I'd much rather go up against a team in a winning streak, because no matter the streak, they end at some point. Much better to end a winning one than a losing one right?

Why hello Mr. Hyde. Can't say as I missed you...

*flips back to football*

HabsFan29 said...
