BREAKING NEWS - Coach Carbo to Use "Eeny Meeny Miney Mo" to Choose Tonight's Goalie

(TSN) Hot on the heels of Jaro's outstanding performance on Monday, Habs coach Guy Carbonneau was on the fence about whether to start Price or Halak in goal in tonight's pivotal Game 4. After some soul-searching, he decided he will turn to the children's favourite "eeny meeny miney mo" game to make his selection.

"I figured, you know, there is really not much difference, and it seems the decisions I make don't really affect games anyway, so why not?" Carbo said. "It's not like one of our goalies has been annointed the franchise saviour or anything. So I'll just call them into my office at 5 PM, and do that eeny meeny thing. I don't think it will affect their performance at all."

Other selection processes that were ultimately rejected included a coin flip, one potato-two potato, and letting the goalies fight to the death "Amok Time"-style with the winner getting to play and mate with the hot blonde chick who sits behind Carbo at the Bell Centre.

What a ridiculous way to choose your starter! Everyone knows that Rock Paper Scissors (best 2 out of 3) is the way to go!

Plus it would inevitably lead to another great Jaro blog, regardless o the outcome.

Hey is there any pictures of this mysterious blond who sits behind the Habs bench?

All this focus on the Goalies. It the Habs forwards who disapointed us in Game 3.

I've JUST finished watching the game (downloaded it today due to college commitments). Montreal were desperately unlucky to not go into the first intermission with a lead. Three shots off the iron?!? When you have 'luck' like that, coupled with Price playing a Detroit octopus after it's been shovelled from the playing surface, there was only one outcome. I could tell after 1 period.

NOT HAPPY.


PS: Not to get on Price's back or anything but he nearly dropped the puck at the feet of an opposing player AGAIN, as I'm sure you all saw (through your fingers)! Feckin' hell.....
