GG11 is still on vacation so we tought we'd give her a break. However, we're too busy watching Canada-Switzerland at the WJC to google image something interesting, so lame excuse to post hot chick/Mike Fisher's main squeeze, Carrie Underwood it is!
Boxing week shopping has evaporated any brains cells the last week's alcohol consumption left behind, so can't think of any interesting theme - here's some smart ass hockey "analysis" (allegedly) instead:
Details: Puck drop at the "insert name of financial giant"Place in Ottawa tonight for game 5 of 7 on this holiday road trip for les Habitants.
Hot: Jaro owns this paragraph. In fact, the NHL named Jaro The Younger first star of the week. Why? Um, he was pretty good last week - outright stealing at least 6 points (maybe 8) for the Habs. If the Canadiens do sneak into the playoffs, keep that in mind. Oh, and Jaro asked us to pass on a message to his teammates:
Jaro seez: play some fucking defence tonight.
Someone had to score, though: SuperPleks is still on a tear, plus Gomez has a goal and three assists in the last 2. We're still going to remind you of how great it is to have Markov back.
For Ottawa, it's probably not a good sign that Anton Volchenkov is their hottest player with 2 points in 2 games. Kovy probably has dual motivation this week: not only playing Montreal, but an Olympic snub, too. Mike Fisher is having a monster season, and can take solace in the fact that if he doesn't need a ticket to Vancouver in February he can spend the week banging his uber-hot future wife on a beach somewhere.
Not: Mad Max and Dagger seem intent on punching their tickets out of town, but after the second and third periods against the Leafs, they're not alone in this category. Milan Michalec has no points in 3 games and Pascal Leclaire has given up 4-and-a-half goals a game in the pair of games since his return from a broken cheekbone. As with Benoit Brunet back in the day, history says it's just a matter of time until he's back on the IR after he trips and falls through a glass coffee table, or gets his hand stuck in a snowblower, or his dog bites him or something equally bizarre.
Lineup notes: it's officially a game time decision, but looks like Little Giant and his huge heart is back tonight - and we just heard Gomer splooge again, all the way from Calgary. If he's back, Saggy Tits probably can pick himself up a bag of popcorn cause he'll be in the press box - if not in his agent's office demanding a trade again. Snore. Hamr might go too, meaning The Urologist may take Dagger's place in the lineup. If they both go, only Mara is left in Dr. Mulder's waiting room. Well, until Squid breaks his leg or something equally bizarre fucks over the Habs' playoff chances again.
Ottawa is hurting right now, with Alfie and Spezza on the sideline. Didn't they make up 2/3 of a great line just last season? What ever happened to the left winger on that line? Someone should look into that story. Far too little media coverage about that.
As usual, go checkout SLC: there are probably other Senators blogs, but we don't care.
Post-game entertainment: The NuDen (NSFW, duh) had Nikki Benz on stage back in November. Sorry we missed that. We'll definitely pay more attention to the schedule from now on.
