The Morning Skate for Tuesday, May 12th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of having a Canadian coach...
  • Well Mr. Bettman won't have to worry about any Canadian teams from here on in, as the 'Nucks are gone thanks to a Patrick Kane hat trick in a 7-5 Chicago win. We find it hard to believe a game Roberto Luongo played had that score, but that's what it says;
  • Holy fuck the Caps-Pens series has reached epic proportions. David Steckel is the hero in the Caps' 5-4 OT win. This sets up an epic battle on Wednesday in Casa del HF29 as we must choose between the Game 7 in a classic series and the season finale of Lost. It's all Yanni's fault;
  • La Presse's Réjean Tremblay has a source that says there are four groups in the running to buy the CH, the Québecor group, the Serge Savard group, and two American groups. These groups have supposedly already met with Habs management. The source also says the sale should go through before the draft in June. All this for a team that still is not officially for sale.
Bruins and Ducks facing elimination tonight.

All this for a team that still is not officially for sale....and a team that officially sucks ass.

I really hope I won't be working too late on Wednesday (stupid 10-day trial). That game is going to be crazy.

I'm recording LOST and will be watching saturday, so no spoilers.

hockey fans are being spoiled this spring... I've never seen such great hockey across the board...

Its so good I almost hope the Bruins stave off elimination tonight to force more dramatics in Game 7... until I remember its the Bruins, at which point I fantasize of a team of 20 Scott Walker clones to one-punch the entire B's roster, one by one so nothing is missed by the TV cameras...


Word Verif = 'bloge'

... as in 'Ye Olde FHF Bloge'...

For the love of Guy, let the Canes beat those fucking bastards tonight, and let the Wings win too, so I can just sit back and enjoy the hockey.

Go WhalerCanes! (I just vurped a little in my mouth)

Let's Go, WhalerCanes, let's go! [clap, clap]

although to be honest, Conference Finals with 3 Original Six teams would be pretty cool.

I was all set to see the Canes take game 5, I turned the channel in disgust after Boston was ahead 3-0. It needs to end tonight, that'll be my Stanley CUP.

I can't figure out why everyone wants Walker to be suspended.

Ward had clearly agreed to a fight with Walker. Just before he gets punched, you can see him shaking his hands, ready to drop the gloves. He just got beat to the punch (no pun intended). When Claude Julien says all his players have been ordered to remain composed, that's bull.

In Game 4 of the Habs-Bruins series, Komisarek agreed to fight Lucic and as he was dropping his gloves, he got punched by Lucic. I don't see much of a difference.

the Bruins are the biggest crybaby hypocrites out there, thats why. Did anyone catch Chara's career destroying injury the other night?
