The Morning Skate salutes Martin Brodeur for Tuesday, December 22nd

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of a whorish-looking Lindsay Lohan topless...
  • Wait, Habs win a second game in a row? That can't be right. [checks boxscore] Ah, 50 shots against, it IS right! Urologist, Jaro, and Pleks combine for a bunch of heroics in a 4-3 (OT) win. More later today;
  • Sometimes we think we don't fully appreciate the greatness that is Marty Brodeur. Finally gets #104 (over the Pens) to take over sole possession of top spot on the all-time shutouts list. Félicitations, Marty;
  • Marty's possible successor Ryan Miller was great in leading the Sabres to a 3-2 (OT) win over the Leaves;
  • Marty's possible successor Tim Thomas (we're stretching here) gets his fourth shutout of the season to lead the Bs over the Sens;
  • Speaking of the Sens, mazel tov to Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood on their engagement. You crazy kids have a bright future;
  • Just because this is fun to write: Coyotes still on a roll.
  • On the other side of the ledger, Philly continues to lose.
Can we interest you in some video highlights after a win?

The urologist, finally the power forward we've been looking for?? Crashing the net with vigor.

I kid,... no really.

I know jokes lose their shine if they need to be explained. I may have missed a previous explanation or I might just be burnt out. Why do you call MAB the Urologist?

@anon - check the glossary. (think: rhymes with P).

@vt - damn, here we were dreaming of Jeff Carter for Jaro, and the present we were looking for was under the tree all along! MAB should be great - after all, he towers over most of the first line. Seriously though, those two goals were things of beauty - almost makes up for the horrorshow of the first period.

I'm LOVING the Urologist as a forward. He does one thing that every forward except for Métro hasn't done this year - CRASH. THE. NET.

Amazing how the defenceman knows what a forward is supposed to do and, you know, does it.

How about Plekanec?! Served up another Czech sausage, this time with a side of poutine! And Jaro's trade value keeps on rising...

I know this is all very delayed but that Superficial is evil. They track women in bikinis and rip them to shreds. Got sidetracked at the pictures of Helen Hunt in Hawai with the caption something like "she got old, it's like she's dying before our eyes or maybe she fell out of the coffin". Helen is my age. Oy vay.
