The Game Day Skate for Wednesday, December 16th

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of getting tear-gassed...
  • Pens easily win the Battle of Pennsylvania, 6-1. Looks like the Flyers need a goalie;
  • Quick quiz: who is in first place in the Western Conference? Nope. Not them either. Nice try. Keep guessing. Still don't know? After last night, it's the LA Kings;
  • Blues beat the Flames;
  • I don't want to, but as a member of the Quebec media I'm required to point out that Gui! scored last night;
  • Jason Spezza could be out a while.
Habs in the swamps of Jersey tonight. We're not optimistic.

While double checking my route to the Meadowlands (as the swamps are emphemistically known in that part of the world) for tonight's game, I discovered that they moved the rink. I mean, I new they rebuilt the rink recently, but I thought they took the Giants Stadium/Igloo/Spectrum route and built it next door to the old one.

So instead of right in the middle of the swamp, it looks like the Rock is in the center of beautiful downtown Newark. Who would have guessed? What a great improvement! Beauty and handy airport access all in one tidy package! (Not to mention proximity to the swamps).

Can we post pictures in the comments on this site? I'm sure you'll all want to see it...

Gotta go find my pants.

Yes Gui scored, but you forgot to mention that Latendresse's streak looks sustainable, while doing an in-depth review of why Kostitsyn's won't be.

Then you need to fret over Tanguay's benching...

I was just in New Jersey. Moorestown to be exact... Google the houses there if you want to fall out of your chair.

Stupid rich Philly suburbanites.

Don't hold your breath, kiddies. The Habs haven't won on December 16th in years, if memory serves. The fucktards never win on my birthday.

@LG77

My birthday is in June. When I was a kid they often used to win on my birthday.

Now they never even play on my birthday.

Moey said...

The Habs also haven't won any of their games on Dec. 23rd for several years either. Lots to look forward to.

Happy Birthday LG!
Subtle, that was.
And like Boob, my birthday is in June. Fuck.

lawyergirl77 said...

Dwgs - figured it was about as subtle as a Mack truck... did it work?

is it someone's birthday today? if only they would tell us.

Le Douze said...

@moeman, thanks for the tip, it was helpful since I can't read.

Testing devils in the swamp to be sure I'm ready.

@LG - Happy day. It's my wife's b'day, too, so I'm taking her to see the Habs. Mind you, she's a Leafs fan, so maybe it wasn't the best plan?

I'm panting for Vodkov's return...

LG77,

Happy birthday, I hope you're not cooking tonight and Mr. LG77 is taking you out for dinner.

Happy BD LG77
maybe if the team knew they'd make a special effort.
I figure if they don't take 77 dumbass penalties or keep the shots against to below 77 they heard it was your BD!!!

Happy Birthday to LG77
On a Scale of 1 to 10, she's an 11
If TFS can stop about fifty
And TurtleSquidTits are really nifty
The Habs'll win and then she'll be in heaven!

Alternate Ending:
The Habs'll score and so will Kevin
(would work if MR.LG was named Kevin - which is possible but I don't know) - maybe kevincrumbs could score instead...you know - with Mrs. crumbs, or a hooker, or his hand - whatever. I should have quit long ago...

LG77,

Here's to you! Have a great day/night. Enjoy the game and don't get too stressed by the outcome. Hard to believe I know, but there are more important things in this life...

moeman said...

Bonne Fête lg77!!!

WV = hoper, as in Hoper Birthday!

lawyergirl77 said...

Thanks for all of the bday wishes, guys! Making me laugh... or was that the 2 glasses of wine I had at lunch??

Yes, am going out with Mr. LG77 tonight, as well as LGMom and LGStepdad. They're in town from the land of the Sens. sigh.
