The Morning Skate for Tuesday, March 25th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of seeing an "x" next to your team's name in the standings. Oh, wait...
  • Yes, it's true, Habs are in the playoffs after a 7-5 win over Ottawa. More later today, asssuming we can see our keyboards after gouging our eyes out during the 3rd period;
  • The Pens lost, giving the Habs some space in the race for first in the East;
  • Edmonton and Colorado both won in their battle for 8th in the West. Jose Theodore with a shutout to lead the Avs.

I live in South Korea and just started a new job that prevents me from watching live streams via the tubes of the internets. Today I was able to watch the first 2 periods of this game via recored justin.tv. It was 7-1 Habs, and I smugly checked the final score on TSN. I almost spit out my watery, yet pennies-a-glass, beer. Wtf?

The new RDS stream doesn't work in Korea, by the way. If I lived in the hockey hotbed of Somolia or the technological hub that is Yemen, then I would be in luck. Or "Liban". Make believe countries are getting this shit, and I'm not!

I guess I have no choice now that the Habs have clinched a playoff berth and will likely seed in the top 2 than to quit my sweet new job. I mean, it's been 15 years. I barely had hair 'down there' when my boys last had a shot at the silver holy grail.
