The Morning Skate for Thursday, March 18th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of March Madness...
  • You really didn't miss much. So scroll down and go read HF4's piece posted late yesterday if you haven't yet. It's the feel good hit of the year;
  • Devils beat the Pens, sweep the season series;
  • Calgary won a big game for them, keep Detroit in their sights for 8th in the West;
  • Saku had the winner in the Ducks 4-2 win over the Hawks. There was some sort of ugliness with checks and hits and such and such that we can't quite figure out;
  • Decent piece from Stubbs on Carbo's 50th birthday about that whole firing thing.
Sorry for those of you used to TMS 6 AM postings. Blame Hydro-Quebec.

63% of fans polled by the Boston Globe believe that revenge over Cooke's hit is more important than the Bruins picking up 2 points tonight.

moeman said...

On course, in Tronna, 16+ C. urBock tonight.

bea.habs.fan said...

this is the problem when the habs don't play.
nobody comes out to play.

i can tell you that I will sleep much better in being aware of your nutritional habits.

the fats in nut butter contributes to healthy cognizance

@ Moeman:

Excellent news from Creemore - Kellerbier is coming back in May.

That stuff was fan-fucking-tastic.

gillis said...

Peanut butter is gods way of saying, i love gillis. Everyday i go home and make myself a peanut butter sandwich with around two centimeters thick of PB, on white bread. Then i squish it, and eat the crust first, then eat the fillet. delicious.

and its proteiny.

Not sure why it wasn't mentioned in that piece on carbo that he was fired because price was dating his daughter Kristina and when things went bad carbo went to gainey and said it is me or him and gainey chose price. Not such a mystery any more.

HabsFan29 said...

@LG - you want something sort of smokey, not sweet. Cragganmore is a good choice

RiRi said...

PB&J is one of my fave snacks. Or Peanut butter and banana slices.

Peanut butter and nutella on white toast is to comfort myself after a Habs` loss... Haven`t had one of those in a while. Let`s keep it that way, k boys? Thx.

HabsFan29 said...

PB and Nutella rules RiRi!!! i just put it on plain white bread, or even better a good baguette. it's like a Reese Peanut Butter Cup sandwich

HabsFan4 said...

You guys like Arm & Hammer toothpaste?

Moey said...

Never was a big fan of peanut butter. Love peanut butter cookies though, and cinnamon toast as a kid.

Moey said...

@HF4,

The only toothpaste I don't like is Crest.

bea.habs.fan said...

I make killer peanut butter and banana muffins.
but my absolute fav is good quality black choclate dipped in peanut butter jar.

and the always dependable anything with satay sauce (Indonesian spicy peanut sauce)

HabsFan4 said...

I read an article last week on the addictive ingredients in cheese. Ever notice how you can go on and eat that stuff forever? It's like the love making of foods.

Except cheese differs in that you never have a first bite and then stop abruptly seconds into it and tell your significant other uh, wait, no... I swear that never happens, I'm so sorry.

Cheese is cool that way.

HabsFan4 said...

Satay rocks.

Always enjoy Satay at a Thai restaurant.

Satay la meilleure sauce que j'ai goutée.

bea.habs.fan said...

@HF4 tried to make my own satay sauce once - couldn't get the texture right but sure got the hotness cry worthy.

as for toothpaste - I'm a snoot. I get this real minty one from France

This city is going to shits. Mcleans was right.

gillis said...

Cheese is milks leap toward immortality

RiRi said...

Grilled cheese sandwiches are also a guilty pleasure!
Combine cheese and chocolate? Twice as nice!

Anyone ever try this chocolate+brie panini? Amazing!

HabsFan29 said...

Cheese is milks leap toward immortality
