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.
