A History But No Present of Evil: Flyers Game 2 Preview and Open Thread

For about 15 minutes on FHF you may have seen some chick in a cat suit. Pretend it never existed. I had a whole thing about wanting a "catty" angry, gritty hockey game but when i hit publish it was just stupid. I realised The Evil Flyers had taken over my brain or something. Or it's the meth. So I deleted it. My problem I realise, is that I have no hatred for the present Flyers. Only the Past ones. That's why we've been writing a history of evil on FHF. Past Flyers are much more fun to hate. Booing Briére is just not cutting it enough as a hatred. That's why I tried to invent some stupid cat thing based on some hot stripper pic I had, because I have no real hatred for this version of the Flyers. Not to mention, we seem to like their fans and bloggers. So cmon Flyers, you've got at least 3 more games to make me hate you. Anyway, here's an evil looking stripper insteaad and most of the rest of the post I deleted, which is a pretty decent preview. No point wasting it. It's like two for one!

So, you know, game one was alright. Pretty exciting really, what with the crazy bounces and goals and a happy ending. But it was exciting in the regular season sense. Both teams were tired and sloppy from their 7 game series. The couldn't give us the epic, tough playoff battle type of exciting. There was that Richards hit on Kovy (btw, no attempt to injure imho, though others disagree), but no real chippiness. So that's what I want starting tonight (well, not attempts to injure) - emotions. Grittiness. Dirt. A playoff series, for fuck's sake. Here's some bullet points to get the catfight going:
  • 7 PM start. Have any of you been to that lame "tailgating" thing next to the Bell Centre before games? What's the deal?
  • Be sure to pray to the Holy Trinity of flyers blogs, Flyers. Femme, eager to go psycho, and Flyers Goal Scored By. Nadine, i'm working on getting HF4 and Panger over to take your dare. They're stuck in a strip club, as usual;
  • SlowGreekBang Line. Who loves ya baby?
  • And Kovy. You know, he does stupid things, he disappears for periods or games sometimes, but in the end he always seems to get plenty of points in the playoffs, again this year a point per game;
  • Hot for the Flyers - Jim Dowd!
  • No line-up changes, meaning Breezer is free to score more goals (into his own net! [rimshot]) while Rhino's built-for-the-playoffs giant body languishes in the pressbox;
  • Here's what I think. The Flyers were tired in game one, and we were pretty lucky to win. This game is going to be a lot tougher.

Alright enough talk from me, let's hear it from you. Go hockey, go pants, etc, etc.

Should the Habs win the Stanley Cup, I'm going on the meow-ish Kat Von D's show and get the CH with a nice number 25 tattooed on me whilst the other L.A. Ink gals catfight over me. Yes I'll give the FHF blog a nice Pants-ish plug.

I've beat this dead horse a few times the past week, but is it possible Higgins will show up tonight?
8 games, two goals, zero helpers, 17:22 ATOI..unacceptable.

kristin said...

ooof...the words "hot" and "Jim Dowd" in the same sentence make me nauseous!

On the other hand, SlowGreekBang sounds good.

And I agree on this whole lack of hatred thing...can't we just fast forward to the next round so we can focus our hatred on Crosby?

habsdoc said...

I just wish WE could see the pics Breezer must have of Gainey and Carbo in that compromising position....

HabsFan29 said...

man this RDS pregame is going on forever. drop the fucking puck already.

moeman said...

No Breeze, O'B is in!

HabsFan29 said...

moeman that news has brought a tear to my eye

moeman said...

Oh Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HabsFan29 said...

hehehe

alright FINALLY some hockey

RDS just showed tape of Breezer leaving the ice after warm up. what a sight

moeman said...

Sweet stare-down by smallTits.

HabsFan29 said...

im in Jim Dowd hell. what a waste of a good start

moeman said...

Brutal. Gotta keep the pace going.

HabsFan29 said...

correction umberger. either way, FUCK

Rips it, scores! said...

Ole ole ole ole, ole, o.......shit.

You see what happens when you sing the Ole song too early? It's a good thing we had that unassailable 0-0 lead, so that goal won't hurt us too much, right? God.....

HabsFan29 said...

Ha-lak! Ha-lak!

moeman said...

Weak.

fezworth said...

Well, shit. That was just a perfect shot.

Rips it, scores! said...

I blame the lack of a stripper picture on the new game thread. What else do you think Price does 30 minutes before the game? Lack of strippers has thrown his game completely off kilter.

HabsFan29 said...

@Rips it - are you not seeing a dark haired chick with many tattoos hugging a stripper pole?

HabsFan29 said...

take advantage for fucks sake!

Rips it, scores! said...

Nope, just a blank space in Firefox and a red X in IE. :-(


Ooh, 5 on 3! A goal is needed on this one.

moeman said...

That penalty is gonna piss off cherry.

2-1.

Rips it, scores! said...

KOIVU!!!

Loser Domi said...

"SlowGreekBang line"

thanks for reminding me I haven't been laid in months, boyos.

On second thought, that does mean I have better health in a lot of ways, plus I don't have to fool around with a significant other or whatever. So, ehn.

HabsFan29 said...

is every game in this series gonna be 5-4 or 4-3

oh my god this line

hey rips it - do you see her now? refresh?

hwy now some action!

moeman said...

Almost total domination, if not for one crappy goal. Keep it going boys. Keep. It. Going!

msevigny said...

It's just like the first game--something bad happens (Philly getting the first goal despite Montreal having momentum) and the Habs panic for a bit, then they recover (the 5-on-3 helped speed it up) and get back in the game. I don't think it's reasonable enough to expect the Habs to play a mistake-free game so maybe it'd be better if they just learned to deal with them instead of letting themselves fall into an even deeper hole after it happens.

orangeman said...

I think the Habs had a great period. One of them didn't paly very well, though. Can you guess who? He better straighten up.

According to the media and Flyers fans Montreal didn't deserve to be in the same league as Philly last game (not what I saw) and if the stick didn't break it would have been 8-0. Hopefully this period shuts them up a bit.

Yeah, right.

moeman said...

The only way to shut up the Phlyers and their Phans is to beat them. They'll yip until there's OT in Game 7 and then they'll run over our goalie and rub it in after a cheap goal.

Also, is Birdface even playing tonight?

Rips it, scores! said...

@29: There we go! Quick, someone tell Price!

HabsFan29 said...

has the Streit-Dandy-Max line done anything lately?

HabsFan29 said...

great. line juggling time

HabsFan29 said...

we can get on with it anytime now...

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK. disaster brewing

Rips it, scores! said...

Can't blame Price for that one. The Habs have been listless for the last few minutes. Feel free to step it up, guys.

Rips it, scores! said...

Fantastic save by Biron.

HabsFan29 said...

AUUGGHH. nice save.

orangeman said...

Did Pleks share a water bottle with Ryder? What the hell is up with him?

HabsFan29 said...

hey! here's the chippiness i wanted

HabsFan29 said...

Biron winning the goalie battle

Rips it, scores! said...

Bring me the head of Martin Biron.

orangeman said...

Fuck Biron. Fuck Biron. Fuck Biron.

moeman said...

Freakin' Biron is making my beer taste stale. Bastage!

moeman said...

Chip away boys. Go habs Go!

moeman said...

Thats one.

orangeman said...

*Clapping hands vigorously*

HabsFan29 said...

amazing the way the crowd is back in it

HabsFan29 said...

Price is certainly NOT right tonight

sorry

but seriously, he's fighting the puck and himself

moeman said...

orangeman, is it almost Monday over there? ; )

moeman said...

Lappierre and Dandenault have done squat. Grabs and CCR might see some icetime in PHI?

HabsFan29 said...

OH GOD higgins so close

Rips it, scores! said...

Hack the bone! Hack the bone!

Rips it, scores! said...

FSS Pleks!!!!! Open side!

orangeman said...

@moeman: Yeah, it's Sunday here. I'm up after 4 hours of horrible drunken sleep.

Did Richards just try to butt-bug Price? I feel a Habbie goal. I just feel it.

moeman said...

o-man, spinning rooms are not fun. Have a good Monday dude.

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK. just pathetic

Rips it, scores! said...

Has Price forgotten how to ice a puck? That's three goals he should have done better on, screen or no screen on goal #1.

moeman said...

meh, sleep not being lost here. Habs are still the superior team but tonight is a game full of mistakes.

moeman said...

Oh well, at least no rioting in the beautiful Montreal. At least the cbc will be happy, so thats nice.

HabsFan29 said...

well, you could easily say Fleyrs deserved Game 1 and habs deserved this one, so whatevs

im worried about Price again

moeman said...

Yup, Price has to re-ground himself because the PHI fans will be on his case. The kid is getting every lesson in the playoff book. 2 of the 4 goals allowed were major lapses. Carbo will likely line juggle again but he's gotten us this far so I'm not going to be quick to complain.

orangeman said...

Montreal was obviously the better team tonight, but that's how it goes. No panic here (I'll leave that to HF29). One player on Philly was strong and one player on Montreal was weak. Unfortunately, they're in the most important position. The good news is we know Price can rebound from weak games and that Biron can't be that good all the time.

Now for a well deserved nap.

moeman said...

RDS' Brunet is right, the Flyers are arrogant when they win. Time to regroup and cram that arrogance down their throats.

Rips it, scores! said...

I'm still more confident about this series than I was at this point in the Boston series. Montreal would have won this game if Price didn't put in a horrible performance.

Bryan said...

moeman, that's funny.. i have a habs tattoo planned as well for if they win. gonna have the logo in the background with either Koivu or Price lifting the cup in front. never thought of having the number 25 worked in there but that makes sense.
