The Morning Skate for Wednesday, April 29th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of the first 100 days...
  • Holy crap! Caps complete the comeback from 3-1 down over the Rangers, thanks to a late Sergei Fedorov goal for a 2-1 win. That sound you heard was Gary Bettman orgasming at the Ovie-Sid the Kid Round 2;
  • HOLY FUCK! Canes score two in the last 1:20 of the third to beat the Devils 4-3 and advance to Round 2. Seriously, HOLY FUCK;
  • Canada wins their Double Eye pool thanks to a 7-3 win over Slovakia. Jaro was pulled after letting in 5 goals on 17 shots. Can you blame him? He was really rusty.
Round 2 starts Friday Thursday, if, you know, you still care about hockey.

Round 2 actually starts Thursday with Vancouver/Chicago, but I understand why you wouldn't be watching it too closely.

Holy Shit did you see those Hurricanes? Amazing stuff. Kinda scary, too.

And Sergei Fedorov, of all people, scored the game-winner for Washington. Huge moves. HUGE!

(As big as the Habs offseason moves? Time will tell...)

I can't believe Marty's meltdown that cost them the series. He's gonna be one angry golfer this year... Goes from being the hero with the record, to the goat with this.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. *snicker*

It is deviously good to know that other teams also have all kinds of questions hanging above their heads now.

And, all good hockey fans should still care. There are some very intriguing series to be played, all of which could last quite a while.

Broons in 6, Pens in 6, Canucks in 5, Wings in 7. Thoughts?

Pronger's Elbow can't stop all the wings: wings

Luongo might let some pucks by from the Hawks, but he's already destroyed one exciting young promising team: vancouver

Penguins can score more than the rangers: penguins

Bruins/Canes: no predictions due to superstition.

Boob Gainey said...

Bruins in 5.

Hopefully two easy series means you will be too complacent when you meet the Pens/Caps in the conference final.

Bruins! Canes! If the Bruins win, they get to keep New England. If the Canes win, they get to move back to Hartford, bringing the Canes girls, tailgating, and Ric Flair with them.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

We've already got Ric Flair's WOOO and ice girls. Though tailgating is something I could definitely get into.

iwishiweremingus said...

the WOOOO! don't remind me. that is the aural equivalent of getting kneecapped.
