Fishnet in memory of the Whale - Hurricanes Game Preview and Open Thread

Fishy, fishy, fishy fish. That went, wherever I, did go. Who's up for a little "find the fish"?

Waiting in line details - 7:30 PM start at the Phone Booth. Are we ever going on the road again? It's Méchant Mardi on RDS! I still don't know what that means. Are Tuesdays now evil or something? Habs coming off their first regulation loss of the season. Canes sitting atop the Soutleast division at 4-3-1, and a solid 2-1-1 on their current road trip. Last year, Canes had a 2-1-1 advantage over the Habs. Since the lockout, Canes are 9-0 in the Bell Centre. Ye gads.

Pay your cover charge to - old FHF friend Wufpirate is rocking over at Carolina on Ice. He's really upped the Photoshop ante this year. Putting a Staal face on Princess Leia can't be easy.

Hot sexy Habs to watch - Tender Guay Saks of course. Captain K with 10 points in his last 6 games, and Tangy with 8 points over that span. Markov behind only Ottawa surprise Filip Kuba amongst league D in scoring, with at least one assist in every game we've played.

Skanky Habs to watch - well the Danse à Dix line got off a million shots on Saturday but could barely bury one. Little Tits has zero points in four games.

Hot sexy Canes to watch - Eric Staal a point per game over the last 6. Cam Ward has never lost (7-0) at the Bell Centre, with a sick .952 save %.

Skanky Canes to watch - Sergei Samsonov pointless so far this season. Really? You don't say?

Line-up mania! - Well the Gazette reports that Big Tits is playing, but I also read he has yet to be cleared by the doctors. You guys can keep us filled in throughout the day. Other than that, everyone is available, so be sure to see Breezer in the lineup as the Habs coaching staff continue their glorious love affair with him (UPDATE: Breezer is OUT. W00t! Suck it, trunk-boy). TFS will start. Canes are dropping like flies, too many injuries to list.

Post-game entertainment - This week's early-week avoid depressing strip clubs to watch TV pick is Fringe, JJ Abrams' new series on Fox. Maybe a little too X-Files derivative, but damn it's entertaining at least. Last week's Scanners-esque exploding heads were awesome. Of course, the episode may be pre-empted by the resumption of Game 5 of the World Series. In that case, read a boring book; it'll be more exciting than baseball.

Ok, so first stupid baseball preempts Prison Break (yes I still watch that show for some reason), and now the same game could potentially preempt the only other non-hockey/football/animated sitcom that I watch (Fringe) on a different night! Fuckin' Loria! Fuckin' baseball! Fuckin' fuck!

Oh, hey. If there's some sort of Italian theme linked to tonight's game, I have a potential omen.
My Word Verification is prizo, which is most likely (though I have no idea) Italian for Price.

Yay for Big Tits!

Argh!

fezworth said...

And I call myself a developer. For Shame.

Limerick Dude said...

Woo! No stupid baseball tonight!

What will the fourth line look like?
Greek Lighning, Mad Max and Laraque?

Gino Tomac said...

I have a bad feeling that even from the press box Breezer will somehow manage to turn over the puck.

Limerick Dude said...

I see Laraque is out. Dandy is in.

Nice Python reference. The Hurricanes and the Lightning have both been champs this century. That's two too many balmy weather terms on OUR Cup (also: Anaheim).

Limerick Dude said...

Off topic, I noticed the other day that Chelios was ecstatic to be able to use his original 1928 Wings Jersey for the Winter 'classic'.

WufPirate said...

First, the bad news for Canes fans: The game is not broadcast locally for us. You have to either have centre ice or go to your local sports bar.

The good news: I don't have C.I. and therefore will be piss drunk to celebrate a Canes win / drown my sorrows over a Canes loss at my local watering hole on a Tuesday night.

Have fun everyone and thanks for the shoutout FHFers!

@fezworth - turn in your computer. you're a disgrace to web developers everywhere ;)

but a great photo

@copyranter - thx for catching the reference. i was scared i was too old and no one would get it

fezworth said...

@HF29 - It's especially embarassing on your forum. :-P I would love to say that if it's not Flash/Actionscript, my genius is stunted. But the truth is, I'm already hammered.

HabsFan29 said...

HabsFan29 said...

HabsFan29 said...

Text message from a friend in Calgary:

Fuckin Tanguay. Fuckin Keenan. Fuck!!

HabsFan29 said...

@melly - we have yet to use the word "rebirth" or the phrase "revitalized career" but it's getting close

HabsFan29 said...

fucking shooting gallery but we can't hit a target. jeebus

HabsFan29 said...

we didn't bury chances and it's gonna cost us, i can feel it

Number31 said...

Bright yellow paper!

OK 2nd was better than the first, but they scored all the goals in the first. Go figure.

Tango-Alpha-Bravo! I love that number 13!

HabsFan29 said...

see my previous comment. told ya. just took an intermission.

Doogie2K said...

Re: Tanguay

While I have no link to point to offhand -- just this copy of an email sitting on my desktop telling a radio host he's full of shit -- I'd like to take this opportunity to say I fucking called it.

HabsFan29 said...

well it's a point, but blech

HabsFan29 said...

oh benoit you homer. that whole exchange was questionable at best

HabsFan29 said...

we had a few chances there. just a few. JEEZ fucking bury one guys! grrr

Noda said...

HabsFan29 said...

gotta love TFS in a shootout.

Number31 said...

Yay ugly win. Wake up boys or the Wild will eat you badly Thursday...

Beta169 said...

It was 2 points. Not pretty, but 2 points.

Watched on CenterIce and really, what the fuck is up with the commercial where the guy gets killed in the machine shop accident?!? Thank G-d my three year old wasn't watching the game with me.

Bryan said...

haha yeah that commercial is pretty out there
