Behold the power of Czech Sausage - Habs 3 Isles 2 (OT, again)

Mmmmm, sausage. In his post-game interviews, Hamr called the beautiful saucer pass that Pleks delivered to him for the OT winner a "Czech Sausage." I have no idea whether or not the Czechs even make a decent sausage, and I am vaguely disturbed by the sexual euphemism of the whole thing, but fuck with a pass like that, you could call it a pile of piss and I'd still lick it up.

Plan the parade - as I wrote in TMS, it was the unsung heroes that came through. Giant Mexican Squid was pretty quiet, but some other guys came to play. That's a good sign. MOEmaN came on strong, working hard in front of the net for his goal. Jaro 2.0 had a real solid game after a bad one Saturday, getting his first goal as a Hab. Métro was supposedly not even starting, and he came through with 2 assists and another game where we wondered where the hell this guy's been all these years. Pleks continues to be completely un-zombified, and his work on the OT winner was a sight to behold, working around 2 D to deliver the perfect Czech Sausage. The D played pretty well as a unit, even Gill and The Urologist looked semi-decent in the defensive zone. I didn't notice any suckitude on their parts. Gorges had his usual quiet, efficient game. Mara and Jaro 2.0 are really putting in big minutes with the loss of Markov and Rhino. Remember them?

And it's time for Jaro to get his own paragraph. Through the four game win streak, he has really kept us in it. Made the key saves when he had to. Looks comfortable back there, confident. TFS may be the future of the team, but for right now, Jaro is the present. Though I fully expect Cari gets a start at some point this week with 3 games in 4 nights, if he sucks in that start, things could get ugly. Especially in the media, and the blogs. Those bloggers can be ruthless assholes.

And even though they didn't score, I think both Gui! and even Big Tits to some extent had decent games. They seemed to be working hard. As I have mentioned several times, that's all you can ask for. Add an ever-increasingly confident CHips to the mix, and the lower lines were making things happen.

The sky is falling - after the dominance of Saturday, GMS was strangely quiet. They didn't seem to have the same click they had Saturday. It's bound to happen some games, we just need to make sure the rest of the guys can back them up.

Can no one fucking count to 6 on this team? Two too many men on the ice penalties is a disgrace for a coach who is supposed to be great behind the bench. We took some other stupid penalties too. Not that the refs were great, but you can't blame them.

And let's face it, we needed OT to beat a team that's near the bottom of the East. That shit ain't gonna cut it for our next two games.

Chez Parée bound? The VIP room is full of Czechs. A bunch of other guys are lounging around the stage, but no one is really staying late and getting complimentary blowjobs.

Next evil evil foe - A real fucking test, tomorrow night in Pensburgh.

VAGUELY?? Take a look at the label on the can behind Jaro 2.0. It looks like a cross between The Joker and Liza Manelli pleasuring someone.

"fuck with a pass like that, you could call it a pile of piss and I'd still lick it up."

Best or most disturbing?

This recap needs more potshots at that fucker Jack Todd. And less suggestive imagery about sausage. And, Jaro is Slovak, not Czech. My Slovak in-laws would like that noted.

Go sausage?

Is no one else disturbed by the sausage-loving Czech Dracula?

I don't mean to act smart or anything, but why is there a picture of halak, a slovak, on a can of czech saucisse?

@gillis
It's a hidden reference to the 1993 Stanley Cup which coincided with the dissolution - or Velvet Divorce - of Czechoslovakia into The Czech Republic and Slovakia. By putting a Slovak on a can of Czech sausage it was as if to put out a hand of peace on the ice and... aw, fuck it, that's all I could find.

I wrote this somewhere else, but it bears repeating here:

I’m still not ready to annoint Halak the #1 goalie. He’s beaten the Islanders twice, Atlanta once, and gave up four goals on 27 shots in an overtime victory against the Rangers. Not exactly the cream of the crop (only one playoff team). Let’s see how he does against the Pens, Bruins, Caps and other great teams first.

I also find he has a tendency to give up one bad goal a game. The other night was the first Islanders goal (between the legs). Last week against the Islanders was the one he gave away while the Habs were on the powerplay. He’s got to stop that if he wants to be the #1 goalie.
