"You go to da box for 2 minutes, you know, by yourself... you feel shame... and then you get free" Habs 2, Wild 1

You know, we'd love to give you a full recount of an exciting thrilling game between two top teams in the NHL, the big Koivu vs. Koivu showdown, Markov finally scoring on a shot from the point on the PP, Tangy getting two more points, TFS having another outstanding game, etc. Thanks to the refs, we're just going to post this instead, from the second period:

6:07 Robert Lang: 2 Minutes for Tripping Stephane Veilleux
6:24 Christopher Higgins: 2 Minutes for Crosschecking Andrew Brunette
7:48 Roman Hamrlik: 2 Minutes for Hooking Colton Gillies
9:58 2-Minute Bench Penalty for Too Many Men on the Ice (Served by Maxim Lapierre)
14:47 Mathieu Dandenault: 2 Minutes for Tripping Nick Schultz
16:18 Tom Kostopoulos: 2 Minutes for Delay of Game - Puck Over Glass

Throw in a couple more from each of the first and third, and the Habs managed somehow to kill 10 penalties, including a bunch of 5 on 3 time. Well fucking done on that front, boys. The refs weren't much kinder to the Wild, so we're not really complaining about the refs (though you can certainly complain if you like). We're complaining that the game sucked to watch because of the penalties. We'll take the 2 points and move on.

Next evil foe - Habs head to Long Island to battle the sucky Islanders. Trap, trap!

What a whore.

The refs were terrible. Painful to watch, the only questionable call against the Habs was the too many men. That was total SHIT! The too many men against the Wild was justified, as the new guy jumped off the bench and got the puck before the guy coming off actually made it to the bench... what a joke.

Honestly, I thought the 2 Wild penalties that lead to the 5 on 3 winning goal were fairly bogus.
I knew the refs would try to even things up, just didn't think they'd keep trying, and trying and trying...

2 points.

Breezer was ok, until that breakaway... But then Hammer was just as much to blame on that one. Oy, blueline needs work! Hurray for Price! Dandy's fucking penalty killed me though. That was a stupid penalty. Like Bégin-stupid.

Just got back from Minneapolis. The Excel Energy (local power company) is an amazing building! Bright, clean and very open. And when we walked in all you could hear was OLE OLE OLE. It was pretty cool. We took our seats for the warm up, and we were 4 seats away from Rhino, who bolted to the press box before anyone else notice him.
The game was what it was, at least we got the win.

I heart koivu squared.
