We'll do anything for a good streak - Sharks Game Preview and Open Thread

After yesterday, our new streak is "hot chicks Tom Brady has had sex with"

Greetings from the Adirondacks, from this "remote mountain lodge" with high-speed internet and five channels of ESPN. What a time to be alive. So let's take a quick look at tonight's game with one of my patented long-winded run-on paragraphs. The game starts at 7 PM at the Phone Booth, and it's on CBC for viewers in Quebec, Alberta and B.C. The rest of you losers have to suffer through the Sens-Leafs suckfest. Habs have won 3 in a row! [has heart attack]. The Sharks may be good. They've won five of six and lead the league with 93 points. The Chum Bucket is fucking funny. Pleks and Kovy seem to be on their way back to being last year's models, 7 points in 3 and 8 points in 4 respectively. I'm sure I don't need to tell you to keep an eye on Thornton and Marleau for the Sharks. No doubt the Montreal rfaithful will greet Claude Lemieux warmly. Now let's talk special teams. Habs are over 40% on the PP since The Semitic Saviour's arrival (now all the way up to 17th!), and can't seem to find a 5 on 3 PK they can't kill. The Sharks, however, have the 2nd best PP and 6th best PK in the league. Nice combo. Habs going with the exact same lineup as last night, including Jaroslav Allah. Nabokov has the sniffles, so Brian Boucher will be between the stripper poles for the Sharks. How about some Shark Porn for your post-game adult entertainment? It's not what you think.

Go Pants, baby! Except for you Bridget. Then it's Go No Pants.

"Shark Porn" somewhat reminds me of an old Led Zep story...

BOOOOOOSHAAAAAYYYYY!!!

He's not used to the taunting, and it shows. Heh.

Riddle me this: why was I the only one who was booing Lemieux?? Am I the only one who remembers what kind of a turtleing bastard he is?? Je me souviens, my ass...

Holy friggin' crap... the Habs really DO play to the level of competition.

Halak is made of awesome.

Damn... I just tweeted about the Habs being up 3-0 at the start of the 2nd, and of course.. SJ scores.

Oh, there's the old Habs I know.

Quick, someone check the warehouse. The Habs we know and 'love' must have escaped during the intermission.

copyranter said...

At this point, I'm hoping for a point. Jesus the Habs are getting dominated.

Goals aside, this is playing out to be very similar to first period play.

When is the last time we scored after the first period (OT doesn't count)? That trap system is doing wonders for my nerves.

JA-RO! JA-RO! JA-RO!

(there's pee in my pants)

HF29 aka HH29 said...

Carey who?

lawyergirl77 said...

29 - I'm always checking him out on his little stool beside the bench. He's looking mighty dejected these days. I'm just worried that the lack of playing time is only reinforcing his pot/booze habit... :(

That being said - throw the fat ugly cari wale under the bus!! JA-RO! JA-RO! JA-RO!!

In other news: Laraque is fucking useless. Can't we trade him for a bag of pucks?

Anonymous said...

lg77 - Laraque has a no-movement clause (it applies to both his contract and his skating), so we would need to ask him politely before we could do anything (oh God, the irony...)

WOW.

Just ... wow.

Jaro post recap? :)

Alright so I´m in Spain right now. ¿Pretty cool eh?

Thank good I found a computer cause I couldn´t find hockey scores anywhere else.

¿How many games in a row now? Three? Don´t fuck with a streak. ¿What the fuck? Four!!! They beat the Sharks!!! I´m so much happier now. I hate jet lag. And time change.

I´m going to be in london in a week so I´ll be watching the Devils game from the Maple Leaf Pub.

Ole OLE OLE OLE OLEEEE!! Its spanish so im allowed to say it. But I prefer to change it to ´MORE BEER´.

Jesus Price backing up Jaroslav Allah. Seriously, no other team can compete with this.
This new nickname is brilliant!

@Grrreeeg - credit where credit was due, I first got it from Shutdown (see comments in the last "Jaro" post)

@Gillis

The Maple Leaf Pub....brings back memories of many moons ago, spent an afternoon there watching reruns of Habs games. Enjoy, it's a good spot.
