Oh Captain My Captain - Devils Preview and Open Thread

No one seems to want to talk about last night, so here's a new thread for you to look forward. The basic facts about tonight's game - 7 PM in Jersey, Ookies, Koivu, TFS(tm), and Brendan Shanahan. Please God let us go into the All-Star break with a win.

Personally, I'll be watching Lost.

Who's in nets for NJ?

Who ever it is, lets just hope he doesn't have ninja powers like Lehtonen does

I, too, will be watching lost. However, my time machine (Ben and I are tight buddies) will allow me to watch the game and then tune into Lost immediately after, no PVR required.

Argh! Snowboarding, then hockey @ 10:45. What to do, what to do?

Van Hab, you have the right idea. PVR to the rescue!

Shutdown said...

Hockey at 8:30-10:45.

That means Canadiens Express and www.sidereel.com for Lost since I don't own a god damn PVR, assholes.

fezworth said...

Hey, at least you don't have to drive out to Chestermere (15 minutes out of Calgary) for a game starting @ 10:45. Damn, I'd give Breezer's left nut for an 8:30 ice time.

@ Fez`: Comon man, Breezer needs his both nuts. I'll be in class, watching the game on a low quality free stream.

fezworth said...

Holy crap... I can stream CJAD on my iPhone over 3G... I'm set! Wow... just... Wow. Sweet!

This is a no-spoiler zone, TMS. You have been forewarned. I don't want to have to kick you off your own blog.

Um, I thought, Obama would CHange everything!?

Montréaliste1 said...

Nice for Jorges, kind of a garbage goal... Am I alone in here?

orangeman said...

I like to see that the Habs are a Socialist team. Take a goal, give a goal. Very fair.

moeman said...

How lucky am I that Bravo has a Tragically Hip special. Yes, I am gettin' a fucking parody vibe. Off to the henhouse to pen a few words.

orangeman said...

What suprises me isn't that Habs D has a knack for deflecting opposing teams' passes on net (that's what happens when you play the puck instead of the man), it's that it seems to find it's way in EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME.

I have an idea, go to the net and deflect shit ON THE OTHER FUCKING SIDE OF THE ICE.

orangeman said...

And obviously, I'm the only one still watching this mess. Luckily I will be on a month long vacation starting this weekend that will stop me from witnessing the coming collapse.

Now back to watching the last 10 minutes, where the Habs skate around in bored circles waiting for the final horn. Joy.

Van Hab said...

ugh

orangeman said...

Win a goddamn faceoff....Nope? Oh, look another goal. Good job guys. It can be 15-3, but if you can't win a faceoff, better yet lose each one cleanly, they will score in that empty net.

orangeman said...

Well, that's if for live games for me for at least a month. I look forward to coming back to find the Habbies fighting for 8th. Yes, I'm in panic mode. When they're good, they're really not that good. When they're bad, they're pretty fucking bad. No superstargoal scorer, shaky D, (I don't care what anyone says) inconsistant goaltending. As is, they'll likely make the playoffs in 6th or 7th, but won't last long. As a team they seem to just do enough, never really going the extra distance, and we see it when they give up leads late, squeak out wins against Florida, and lose against Atlanta.

Losing against the Devils on the road isn't really the end of the world, but in context it's a sign of the coming Habocalypse.

But I have faith Gainy can fix this. Bring me Bowmester and all will be forgiven.

And Michael Ryder scores on the shootout to steal 2 points from the Leafs.

fezworth said...

Wow. Am I ever glad I watched Lost instead.
