Habs in need of medical attention again - Hamilton-NJ Preview and Open Thread

We hate the injuries, but boy we sure do love doing the Google Image search for sexy nurses

OK so there are really two stories tonight. One - Habs are "hot", going 5-0-1 over their last 6 games with 3 straight wins on the current road trip. Two - Habs lineup should be uh, interesting. Let's just jump right in and cut and paste the injury report:

El Dandy: Broken arm, late January - IR
Higgy: Hand injury, early February - IR
Captain K: Foot injury, day-to-day
BGL: Groin, day-to-day - IR
Tangy: Separated left shoulder, mid-February - IR

Not listed but injured - TFS
Recently assigned to Hamilton - Rhino and Ben Maxwell.
Called up from Hamilton - Marc Denis, our boy CHips, Max Pack, and Swiss Mister II.

Okay then. Some other quick notes for the game:
  • 7 PM start in Joisey. It's Devils Ski Cap (read: toque) Night! The game seems to be on the NHL Network in Canada. I find that very odd;
  • Devils have lost 3 of their last 5. Devils won the one match-up so far this year, in OT;
  • Interchangeable Parts is the best New Jersey Devils blog run by librarians and secretaries on the whole internets;
  • Your hot Hab is MAD MAX. Pleks has transferred the zombie tag to ZombieLang;
  • Parise and Elias are playing well for the Devils. Scott Clemmensen continues to fill in admirably for the injured Brodeur, though he's struggled a bit in the last two losses;
  • For your post-game adult entertainment, leer at the Devils Dancers. We especially like Cydny for her crazy name (typo on the birth certificate?), her cleaning OCD, and her desire to have dinner with Salvador Dali.
The FHF would like to extend our sincerest condolences to Mike Boone and family on the loss of his mom. We rag on HF4's other gig all the time, but Boone is a big FHF fan and supporter. We look forward to him being back at the helm of his game live blogs very soon.

I'm impressed by Bob MacKenzies knowledge of lacrosse (WJHC: Blood Lines). Being a lacrosse player, I'm glad he notices how great a sport it is, unlike the rest of the country. I mean, whats not to love about lacrosse. It's the fastest game on two feet, there's lots of hits, lots of goals. Probably the greatest summer sport on earth.

Anyway, I got to focus, Hockey. Can't wait to see Max Pac play. He's getting a hat trick fo sho.

I've been to a couple of NJ hospital emergency rooms (most recently, St Mary's in Hoboken), and the nurses most certainly didn't look anything like Miss non-regulation uniform here.

I was just looking through the gadgets you can put on a blogspot page, and I found a gadget that always post a hot, half naked chick. It updates automatically so instead of always thinking of a lame excuse to post hot chicks everyday, you just need one lame excuse to an infinite number of hot chicks. Just a thought.

@gillis - your ideas intrigue me and i wish to subscribe to your newsletter

anyone watching this USA-Slovak game? upset in the making. Slovak goalie standing on his head. shit, US just scored to make it close

HabsFan29 said...

@copyranter - what's a city boy doing in Jersey? it better have something to do with strippers or cheaper booze

HabsFan29 said...

PS @copyranter - you hate going to BROOKLYN, what are you doing in Hoboken???

Doogie2K said...

@Gillis: I've been meaning for years to check out the Roughnecks here in Calgary, but I never get around to it. Tickets are cheap (around junior-hockey level), and the people I know who've been have had a great time.

copyranter said...

HF29: I used to live in 'boken, I grew up in Jersey. Been in NYC 10+ years.

bringing the focus back to the game, I've a bad feeling the Habs are finally going to suffer that 10th regulation loss. Stupid trapping Devils.

gillis said...

29: just go to the add gadgets page, and its under sports, third page i think.

copyranter said...

HF29, yeah, just switched on the US-Slovak game...they need another miracle on ice...3 minutes left, down 4-2.

copyranter said...

Slovakia empty-netter, it's over!

HabsFan29 said...

@copranter - i'm sorry

WOW, Slovakia!

Number31 said...

WOW Slovakia indeed. Wonder if their Jaro is drafted yet... Wouldn't mind a Slovakian Carey Price in the system ;D Also who thinks a few of their forwards got Kovy's DVD? Putting the moves out near the end. Well, they worked hard those kids. McCollum looked super shakey.

Maybe this win will make our Jaro happy. Here's to a good game tonight!

Shutdown said...

Apparently McDonagh got player of the game.

He might need a nickname pretty soon. Mickey D's? Golden Arches?

HabsFan29 said...

oh Dagger

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK

meh. we knew we cant do 4-0 on this road trip, right?

HabsFan29 said...

MAX PACK!!!

moeman said...

Hey, HabsFan29, I just have to tell you that IPB might have be classified as the best blog co-run by a totally stupid librarian -- I spent all day (even after reading your post) wondering why you were previewing "Hamilton, NJ", which is a town a few stops down the line from stately IPB Manor. Me so smrt.

panic mode said...

The power play needs fixing.

it's ok Pookie I don't even know who the Devils farm team is. but Hamilton NJ sounds lovely!

HabsFan29 said...

fuck fuck fuck

good job breezer

orangeman said...

Get Halak out NOW. He's not in the game. Not just the goals, his overall play. This will get much worse if he stays in.

Rips it, scores! said...

Here comes Denis. No other choice, from what I can gather from CJAD.

Pookie said...

What? You don't study the Devils minor league system every morning over breakfast? I thought everyone did!

Baroque said...

Not just Briesbois.

On the replay the NJ guys pointed out that the reason he pinched was because he thought a teammate was going to back him up, but instead of backchecking or anything number 46 just coasted over to the bench for a change as the play moved on.

Not just one player's fault.

HabsFan29 said...

@Baroque - blasphemy! it's always breezer's fault

copyranter said...

@Baroque, yeah lazy play by AK46, but also dumb pinch by breezer.

Baroque said...

It's just not ALL his fault.

I'm afraid he may be contagious, actually. :)

The only option may be quarantine.

HabsFan29 said...

is the Russia-Czech game any good?

Baroque said...

Of course, if you lured him in with that "nurse" at the top of the post, I don't think he'd put up much argument to being locked away for the rest of the season, eh? ;)

HabsFan29 said...

can i just take a moment to say we suck?

where's the offence? where's any intensity?

HabsFan29 said...

De-nis! De-nis!

Baroque said...

New Jersey announcers are trying to jinx Denis.

Mentioned that to win, Montreal is probably going to have to shut out the Devils the rest of the way, and he was working on a 118 minute sh****t streak in the AHL before he was called up.

HabsFan29 said...

this is turning into... meh

HabsFan29 said...

from meh to feh

moeman said...

bleCH

orangeman said...

At least they didn't get shut out. That's good, right? Because the effort this team puts in some nigths is...frightening. We won 3 in a row? Good enough. Urgh.

Baroque said...

*sigh*

At least Max got a goal in his debut. Too bad it couldn't be in a win for him.

HabsFan29 said...

in matt's absence:

FEAR THE COLLAPSE PEOPLE

Baroque said...

Run from falling rubble!

HabsFan29 said...

to you from falling rubble we throw the torch be yours to hold it high

copyranter said...

Russians just scored a 5-on-3 shorthanded breakaway goal to make it 3-zip...Czechs just made it 3-1 on same PP.

cottoneye said...

Well Lapierre, even though he's awesome, can't score every game. How about someone else wakes the fuck up and scores?

Panic Mode said...

The all star game balloting is over.

Habs and Pens versus Hawks and Ducks.

Number31 said...

I don't care about the outcome of this game because I'm so happy for Pacioretty. Not only for the goal, but he looked damn good out there tonight. Wonder when we can have #67 t-shirts. (He has the best number on the team). Good thing this wasn't on TSN. I think McGuire's head would have exploded over Pacioretty.

Bryan said...

thank god i was out and only watched canadiens express

Shutdown said...

Can Higgins, Tangy, Saks, Pricey, Dandy and whoever the fuck else is injured just suck it up and come back? Please?


Oh, but we're keeping Maxi Pac (sounds like a tampon... I like it).
