Hockey Night in the E.R. - Avs 3 - What's Left of the Habs 2

Max Pacioretty was not at practice today, and was presumably injured in last night's home opener.

Injury upon injury. They're mounting and have already decimated the team, the hardest blow having almost eradicated the Habs' chances of making the playoffs and dealt during the first game.

So many injuries, it's like the team could be staring in a real weird version of General Hospital.

Something like this:

Casey told Josh Fernando had not called to request the ransom since her baby was kidnapped. Fernando told Andrei that he would meet him down by the pier to discuss what had happened in the cave in Guatemala. Ian made it clear the fans needed to welcome the team loudly and devised a good marketing ploy to have every player introduce himself in French. Roman was seen having dinner with Sebastian while Angela looked on in dismay, confirming her fears that Carlene had told them about their family secret in the Andes. Andrei received a phone call from Carlene who told him about Sebastian's meeting with Roman, which left him so stunned that he forgot to say "Je suis" before introducing himself to the crowd.

Matthew was upset when Rachel stormed into his mansion. Rachel immediately inquired how he could afford a mansion seeing as she had never seen him work a day in his life. Meanwhile, Roman was on the ice trying to shake off the effects of his troubling conversation with Sebastian who had conveyed his intentions of cutting him out of the Garbalando deal. Roman scored a nice goal on the power play but couldn't really alleviate his fears. Stephen tried telling Kathleen that he had feelings for her but the two were interrupted by Kathleen's father who had made it home early from the hospital, where he has been treating the same three patients in alternating fashion over 23 seasons. The Avalanche tied the score and went ahead 2-1 on a couple of strange bounces that went by Carey Price. Jared finally told Cassie about the affair but promised to quit his job if she could give him another chance.

Mitchell experienced mild complications from the explosion in the cave but that did not stop him from ordering Mylena to leave his house when she showed up unannounced at the Paisley home. Andrei made some stunning moves in a great individual effort to dish out a beautiful pass to Tomas Plekanec who fired a one timer to tie the score at 2. Peeps was not able to give the combination to the family safe to Edwardo who threatened to tell Madeleine everything about the ferry ride. Shawn Bell missed an assignment in the corners leading to an easy game winning goal past a stranded Price. Kevin was sure he saw shadows beyond the boxes on the pier while he was waiting for Teresa who never showed up. After making it back to his car, Kevin heard a terrifying scream.

Garbalando deal
I love that as much Bo loves Hope.

I miss Luke and Laura. And that evil Mikkos Cassadine.

I also miss being able to score goals.

GoldenGirl11 said...

And Elizabeth Taylor Cassadine. Remember her? She had an awesome slap shot.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Btw, I really REALLY hope you googled that and didn't actually remember that it was MIKKOS (with an M and double K) by heart.

@GG - uh, sorry

there was a period where a group of friends and I used to record (on a Betamax!) GH every day and run home from school to watch it. i would call those my "socially awkward years", but the fact was the ladies LOVED that i watched GH...

@29 and Moe
Honest? Got you the girls? While playing Hearts in the Marimonotonous caf I don't ever remember discussing Luke and Laura with the guys. And I played a lot of Hearts. A lot.

@moeman: Had a giant burrito at a divey Mexican restaurant this afternoon. In this restaurant (attached to a strip club, btw), they were blasting The Ramones' "Blitzkreig Bop" and all I could think of was "Blitzkrieg Bob".

I applaud you.

My brother and I used to watch those on mute and fill in for the voices. Hilarious stuff.

Sad thing about the Habs is we're losing while playing with effort. At least the Leafs and Preds lose and look terrible... Et tu, injuries.

Bulldogs won tonight in OT. Bergeron had 3 assists, two on the powerplay (5 in 2 games). What an evil powerplay the Dogs have... Weber and Bergeron? DUCK AND COVER!

Moey said...

True confession: I STILL watch Days of our Lives. I feel relieved, my dark secret is out.

moeman said...

Thnx kc, BTW was the giant burrito filled with calamari?

@GG11, my sisters use to hog the tv after school, so whilst doing homework, I was party to Victor Newman's smooth ways. Back at school I enjoyed amazing the gals with sultry and suave savoir-faire.
