The Game Day Skate for Good Friday, April 2nd

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of my people knocking off your future messiah...
  • Hellooooo, standings turnaround! In one night shit goes from disaster to hopeful. Everyone around us lost, and I mean everyone. And all in regulation no less!
  • Start with the Flyers, 6-4 to the Isles;
  • And the Bs, 1-0 to the Panthers;
  • And the Thrash, 2-1 to the Caps;
  • That leaves the Habs in 7th, tied in points and games played with both he Bs and Flyers, and a game and two points in hand over the Thrash. Though the Rangers are now in the mix again, four back but with 2 games in hand;
  • Tronna beats the Sabres. Thank goodness they've already been eliminated from playoff contention, or Leaves fans would be insufferable right about now;
  • Ottawa beats the Canes, their 6th in a row, and punch their ticket to the postseason;
  • Luongo had a disastrous evening.
Habs head to Philly tonight. Happy Good Friday to you all. Hmmm, that doesn't sound quite right. Reflective Good Friday? Sombre Good Friday? Oy, what do I know. Enjoy your day off anyway. And one last note, for any of you who still think yesterday's TMS was the last, meh. The flaw was the "sleeping in" part. At our age, that's fucking impossible.

"HAMILTON, Ont. - The Toronto Marlies' increasingly-slim playoff hopes suffered a blow Thursday night with a 3-2 loss to the Hamilton Bulldogs in American Hockey League action. ... Hamilton (50-16-3-6), meanwhile, has already clinched the North Division title. The win was the Bulldogs 50th of the season, setting a new franchise record for wins in a season. Hamilton's magic number to clinch the Western Conference regular season title is now three.

I still can't stop staring at that picture of Carey the Phat Whale only now it's on the bottom. I hope he'll be wearin' that hat on the bench tonight. Now that is a real Philly Hat. Smokin' Joe would be proud! I think CTPW is a Philly type dude which is why he'll probably be PHillin the net for them next year what with all them gutless bastards dissin him at the phone booth. I only hope the goat can get some equally photoshopable. That CTPW is a whole mountain of bling!

wv drophou: drop the Flyers that's hou!

To be fair, we stopped blaming the Jews for killing Jesus a long time ago. Now we blame the Italians.
