TMS for Tuesday, December 29th 2009

Good morning Habs fan!

While HF29 nurses his meth hangover and scoures the gossip pages for celebrity boob, err, I mean his glorious return tomorrow am, here's yesterday's recap:

  • Habs lose at their own game as Pascal LeClaire plays Jaro and steals two points that the team in front of him didn't earn. Oh well, you live by the sword, you die by the sword. More on the terrible reffing (on both sides of the puck - calm down SLC) later. Meanwhile, let's hope the troops learned sompin' - like, bury the third fucking goal when you have the chance, motherfuckers.

  • Thankfully, Bruins lose too. Let's hope the Lightning have had thier fill of W's for the remainder of the year.

  • Eric Staal scores a pair and adds 3 assists as the Canes drop the Caps 6-3. Nice try, Eric, but you're not going to make the Olympic team now. Let's hope the Caps can eventually recover from the devastation of losing their captain (his name was Chris Clark, by the way) to Columbus.

  • Flames beat Oilers 4-1 in the latest Battle of Alberta. Let's hope Edmonton fans don't commit mass suicide as a result - mostly because I've got plans to be in Edmonton for New Years and that would be a bummer for me. Well, more of a bummer than spending New Year's in Edmonton.

Over at the WJC, Canada pummels the Swiss 5-0. No swiss cheese jokes here - and not just because goalies always deserve better, so BACK OFF (sorry, a little personal there) - as Swiss 'tender Benjamin Conz stops 94 of 103 shots including the previous game against the USA. (Hmm, maybe the Habs should draft him, he'd feel right at home.) Let's hope the rest of the tourny gives us more than a foregone conclusion - yes, even if it means (shudder) Canada loses a game. Better now than at the Olympics.

Why does everybody want to teabag Kerry Fraser?

And if they did, would Kerry's biggest concern be getting come in his hair?

@HF33, heh at the TeabAG line.

@Boob, there's a reason Kerry has helmet hair.

WV = secour, as in au secour!, Fraser a poigné le sac de noix de SLC

My hamster (Pleky) could do a better job at officiating hockey games. And he's naturally nearsighted.

i want to know why martin isn't bitching about the refs we are the second most penalized team in the league as far as minors go... right behind philly. I know i am biased when i watch the games but i feel like i am going out of my mind with some of these calls and none calls. Ottawa complains then they play us and dont get any calls when they are pretty far below us when it comes to overall calls. ugh im probly just wasting my breath...

Rule 69 (heh):

69.1 Interference on the Goalkeeper - This rule is based on the premise that an attacking player’s position, whether inside or outside the crease, should not, by itself, determine whether a goal should be allowed or disallowed. In other words, goals scored while attacking players are standing in the crease may, in appropriate circumstances be allowed. Goals should be disallowed only if: (1) an attacking player, either by his positioning or by contact, impairs the goalkeeper’s ability to move freely within his crease or defend his goal;

So this was the correct call since Halak was unable to move out to cut the angle. That being said, how often do we see this NOT called? Often not often I'd say! Knowwhadi'msayin, seewhadi'msayin?

In the end, the 2 on Oh blunder, the early whistle, the post by Sergei, the puck over the boards, MAB taking a pass on the Fisher hit...all adds up to it wasn't in the cards.

Onto FLA. Hide your purses ladies. OB's back in town, and daddy needs a brand new Prada.

Anyway, I'm still outraged. Result notwithstanding.

@LDude: Not to let Kerry Fucking Fraser off the hook for being a congenital fucktard, my question then to you, good...um...Dude, is this: How in holy hell is a player supposed to know if his positioning is impairing the "goalkeeper ability to move freely within his crease"?

That's a whole pile of ambiguous discretion to hand over to people who can't see a high stick if it hit them in the face. Just sayin...
