The Morning Skate for Wednesday, December 10th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of being an Illinois Governor...
  • This whole Kovy-Lang thing may work out even if Kovy never scores again - Gang Bang had 2G 1A and Kovy two helpers as the Habs beat the Flames 4-1. Dagger continues to make us love him (4G in his last 4GP!) and Jaro deserves some credit too. And the HF29 jinx is proven to be bogus. Unfortunately, get ready for 30+ minutes per game of Breezer 'cause El Dandy broke his arm. More later today;
  • Flyers win 4-3 over the Isles, clusterfuck developing in the Atlantic division;
  • The Mullet rips into the team that fired him, fails to admit he sucks as a coach.
Blog you probably aren't reading but should be
FHF regular commentor Grrreg gives his take on the Habs from the other side of the pond at The Soft European. His front page currently features a Lanny vs. Larry mustache off, some freaky Olympic mascots, Miss France coverage and a Led Zep photo. All of it done cleverly in two languages. Pierre Trudeau would be proud.

I am not about to read 105 comments to see if it was mentioned already in the thread below, but wasn't the original Atlanta Flames so named in memory of the Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia? (never knew if they meant the song by Vicki Lawrence, the actual burning of the city during the Civil War, or the fact team management always wept watching Gone With the Wind).

It's official: I fucking hate Tomas Plekanec.

HabsFan29 said...

@eyebleaf - is he destroying your pool again?

Gino Tomac said...

Dear Four Habs Fans:
No Gang Bang Lang photo, caption and game summary?

No Gang Bang-Guay-Lev line jokes?

I know i sound selfish but you gents are my favorite afternoon read. Does that sound Guay?

Anyway, I'm hoping you guys post soon. I'd rather read Four Habs Fans than have Sean Avery's sloppy seconds. That totally sounds Guay.

Grrrreg said...

Hey, thanks for the shout-out!

I'm glad you're officially allowed to watch the habs again, HF29, you must be relieved...

I give credit to the Flames fans, they reacted way better than Rangers fans to the "10 things I hate" bit.

eyebleaf said...

@ HabsFan29: Yes. Yes he is. To put it in perspective, Plekanec has 13 points this season. Jason Blake has 16...

It was a good game... and I did attempt to start a sloppy seconds chant more than once, didn't work though.

The refs got the boobirds out for ten minutes straight when the flames player hit the net off when the habs were about to score.

Halak's save was amazing.

As was D'agostinis goal.

Kipper sucks
