Welcome to the Skanky Florida Trip - Lightning Game Preview and Open Thread

The Queen of the Skanks


Skanky background to the game - 7 PM start, historic St. Pete Times Forum. On the teevee, TSN / RDS HD double double. Habs have lost 3 of their last 4. Lightning are last in the Southleast division, a.k.a. a couple of wins out of first. Habs have won 2 of 3 from the Bolts this season.

The game is of course shrouded in the skankiness of a felony charge to Ryan O'Byrne. How will this affect the game? Will the troops rally behind the kid? Will Rhino and Greek Lightning play? Frankly, I have no fucking clue. Discuss amongst yourselves.

Non-skanky followers of our skanky opponents - Bolts Blog. Just a good, solid, news and info blog. We should have more like that.

Skanky Habs - all of 'em! Man that Sens game sucked. HueT lets in three goals on four shots. The forwards couldn't beat Ray Emery (though give him credit, he played well, even notorious Emery-basher SLC admits that). The D were, uh, not good.

Skanky Lightning - everyone but Vinny Lecavalier, 4th in league scoring. St. Louis and Prospal ain't bad either. And Johan Holmqvist is an excellent 6-1-1, 2.40 GAA in his last 9 starts. Well, I guess they aren't so skanky after all.

Skanky fun fact that may interest only me - Little Tits has the second highest shooting % in the league. Number 1? Mickey Fucking Ribs.

Skankiest strip club in Tampa - YBor Secrets. When the photos section of the website is "coming soon," you know the skank factor is high.

VERY IMPORTANT SKANK UPDATE @ 4:30 PM (THAT'S WHY IT'S IN BOLD AND ALL CAPS) - CJAD reports that the woman in Florida has withdrawn her complaint against Rhino. Prosecutors could still go forward, but that's doubtful. Kosto still faces his charge though, you can bet the police are not withdrawing that one.

Let's hear your skanky thoughts in the comments.

Line-up notes according to Pat Hickey:

In - Rhino, Breezer

HueT starts

Loser Domi said...

It would be awesome if Rhino scored a goal or something and a bunch of people at the game threw purses at him...

Broton said...

The Ybor website just game me the clap.

Brick Tamlyn said...

I love skank.

Loser Domi said...

@brick tamlyn: I love not being a skank. I've heard that Clap is quite the damper on a Saturday night

Habsfan10 said...

As long as brick doesn't invite anyone to his pants party, it's all good.

Personally, I think there's a time and place for skank.

Interesting to see how Carbo fucks with the lines if both Greek Lightning and Begin are out.

HabsFan29 said...

I think Brick and I would get along well at the strip clubs. To Laval!

HabsFan29 said...

oh and Broton yours was a quality line. clap, heh

HabsFan29 said...

an update not worth the bold and all caps treatment but interesting nonetheless: (ESPN)

"Edmonton Oilers defenseman Sheldon Souray will miss the rest of the season with a left shoulder injury."

HabsFan29 said...

alright drink in one hand, clutching my purse with the other. let's play some puck!

Loser Domi said...

@29, yeah, keep an eye on that, will ya? Maybe the guys were distracted by all that poolside snatch down in F-L-A

HabsFan29 said...

Slap Shot joke. Excellent LD!

I hope the rookies brought their fucking toys with them

HabsFan29 said...

Higgins! Thank god.

What a pass from Markov

HabsFan29 said...

anyone count the number of over the glass penalties we've had in the last couple of weeks?? yeesh

HabsFan29 said...

woohoo! quick strike on the PP.

nice play Streit!

Bryan said...

half the crowd is habs fans

HabsFan29 said...

bryan Habs are big in Fla, especially inwinter

explain how the same play can be a trip AND a dive??? What. The. Fuck.

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK. HueTTT cant make a save. last minute of the period. grrr

Loser Domi said...

"I hope the rookies brought their fucking toys with them"

They're too dumb to play with themselves!

HabsFan29 said...

hehehe

this PP, this game is going nowhere fast

Habs have 10 shots in almost half the game. hmmm

HabsFan29 said...

13 minutes left i feel like we're playing for OT

HabsFan29 said...

I'm happy you're all missing this

Matt - Fear the Collapse said...

Well the collapse has started. A little later this year, but the inherent inability to score has crept up on them.
Of course the Kovy line was hot for awhile. But if they don't score three goals a game this team has no chance. The Koivu line looks like they pose absolutely no offense threat whatsoever, not to mention the other two lines.
This one stings..........

Matt - fear the collapse said...

Wow, this team looks terrible tonight.

HabsFan29 said...

matt-ftc i was just thinking of you! here you are! i fear the collapse is upon us

Matt - fear the collapse said...

Yes, hf29. Even I was almost convinced we had a good team. Alas.....

HabsFan29 said...

they almost had me fooled matt

ok im going to scrub my toilets or something. more entertaining than that game

Shmee said...

I just wanted to say that I didnt think anyone in the NHL could beat the Staal's mugshot. The "gosh darn, Paw's gonna whip us till we're raw" look on their faces was classic. That said,Kosto and O'Byrne win. Hands down. Kosto looks like he is either about to cry/or body check the officer. O'Byrne just looks confused as to how the night ended with police, instead of a hooker.

Habsfan10 said...

Jesus. I miss half the game shoveling snow and that bullshit is what I see? Fuck.

Anyone want to wager on whether or not there's a fucking curfew tonight?

Fucking joke. Half the team out at 3 fucking AM the night before a game? Carbo should skate them into the ground tomorrow for that performance.

The play where Prospal (I think) was digging for the puck at the side of the net and two Canadiens were trying to freeze it ... did anyone else yell "FUCKING HIT HIM!" at their tv? Just me? Oh. This team desperately needs Begin and Greek Lightning out there every night, because besides Little Tits and Doom, they're the only ones who'll fucking hit someone in the mouth.

matt - fear the collapse said...

It'll be interesting to see how they come out tomorrow night.
Hopefully Gainey does something. I mean I am terrified of the collapse we are witnessing and will likely lose sleep over it.
I can't imagine how Gainey is feeling. But it is hard to tell because he has the poker face of a mummy.

RJ said...

Thanks for the Blog love! Looks like you guys may be getting a Hossa infusion soon. Atlanta's Waddell was in the building last night. Yes Hossa, not Vinny...don't even think about it!

HabsFan29 said...

RJ our dreams of Vinny are long dead. not to worry.
