The Morning Skate for Friday, April 11th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of your flight being cancelled...
  • Play Your Tits Off indeed. Habs take game one 4-1, thanks to the brothers Tits' early goals. More later today, duh;
  • Sharks turn their series around in a hurry with a 2-0 win over the Flames;
  • The little fuckity-fuck gets 2 assists in the Stars' 4-0 win;
  • We're ignoring Detroit out of respect for of our StLGT brothers.

Friday. Habs up 1-0. TMS is in a good mood.

Just finally saw the game here in Seoul. I work when it's on live, so I have to wait to watch it at the neighbourhood Canadian pub in the evening here.

Wowzaa. Complete domination. Price did look a bit off his game in the 1st. Luckily Price being off his game is like the Simpsons for the last 10 years: Kind of disappointing, but still better than 99% of what's out there.

I don't have the hate-on for Boston you guys have. I respect the city for at least supporting hockey south of the border in the first place. I almost feel sorry for the Broons. Almost. I'm not used to rooting for the clear favourite. It's been a hard 15 years. Hell, I'm only 27, it's been a hard life as a Habs fan.

The manager at the bar I was at wouldn't turn on the sound, except for the 2nd period. Habs skating loops around the B's doesn't look right when done to awful pop music. May the manager hurt himself non-permanently, but painfully, for his crimes.

Finally, too bad the Flames lost. But Nabokov is my goalie in my pool, so I'll grudgingly take the shut out.

Go Habs Go!

Go Hockey!

Well gents, check my comment from the "Play Your Tits Off - The FHF Round One Preview: Defence"

Game one prediction - right fuckin' on! Looks like a 3-0 shutout Saturday night...

@orangemen - yeah Price was a little nervous in the 1st i think. he settled down.

Just read the comments from the game here (I have nothing better to do on a Friday night).

@loser domi: You're right, Electric 6 is awesome/ridiculous. How great would it be if they played "Danger Danger- High Voltage!" for the Habs' powerplays insted of the U2, or whatever it is? Fire in the Taco Bell, indeed.

What About Bob!

5 minutes in, Bob Cole: "I think it's a bit early to start singing wouldn't you say?"
SHUT UP, ya fuckin' old goat! It's NOT a victory chant!

"Kostopolous (actually Big Tits) skates in and drops the pass to Kostitsyn (actually Kovalev)....
I'm tired and old, I'm going to let the crowd take you home."

"Well, whenever I'm confused, I just check my underwear. It holds the answer to all the important questions."

And on a separate note regarding Chara, is there a reason why he gets booed every time he touches the puck besides the fact that he is the love child of Frankenstein and the Tinman - a big dummy with no heart!

inmate4, we watched RDS. its the best solution

I think the booing of Chara just goes to the Habs fans booing of the other team's best player, which makes them the most hated (see: Jagr over the years). i dont think he really did anything specific

Thanks 29. I usually watch RDS, but for the playoffs, as an anglo, I suffer through it (CBC) and almost enjoy the comic rantings of the evil empire. I actully, gulp, um, sorry, like Hrudey's analysis.

Let's just call it self-punishment for past mis-deeds.
