Yeah, that sucked. Again. And what's with all the shutouts? Is it some kinda rule that you have to win by shutout now? Anyway, to reflect the poor effort of the Habs last night, here's another Twitter recap:
GiantTurtleSquid take the night off. Decent effort, no bounces. No one else steps up up front. Goc with a pair. Pekka Rinne. (122, who-hoo!)
And now I'll rip off the bright ideas of my cohorts cause it's Friday and I'm still kinda stoned:
Theme One: Goaltending History
There was over 37' of goaltender dressed last night: 6'6 Andres Lindback, 6'5 Pekka Rinne, and 6'4 Alex Auld and 6'3 TFS(tm). This is the reason I'm not in the NHL. 9 to 12 measly inches.
Which is to say that Montreal and Nashville are goaltending factories. Montreal drafted and developed Garon, Theo, Halak, Price and Vokoun. Nashville can also claim Vokoun, and since he's left they seem to thrust a new unknown into a starring role every year: Chris Mason, then Dan Ellis, then Rinne and now Lindback. Meanwhile, the Goon Squad down in Philly haven't found a goalie on their own since Hextall. And the Lindros Trade was almost 20 years ago. (Those of you old enough to remember Hextall running an ambush on Chris Chelios back in '89 that an al-Queda operative would have been proud of may now freak out about how old you are.)
Theme Two: Cowboy Movies
The Good: Cheering Francis Bouillon. Well done, Bell Centre fans. But I'm glad he's not good enough to crack our top 6. Have a nice career, Franky!
(For the record, she's 20 so I'm just creepy, not a felon.)
The Bad: Sergei Kostitsyn and Andrei Kostitsyn. They were so bad they don't even deserve the honour of me using their nicknames. Well done on the booing of The Younger, Bell Centre fans. Have a nice KHL career, Sergei.
(Those eyes would get me to do bad things...)
The Ugly: minus 8, GiantTurtleSquid, combined. Ouch. Count Chocula, let the pushups begin!
Theme The Third: Sexy Friday!
Here's FHM's top 5 Sexiest of 2010. And here's a link to the Top 100. Now go waste the rest of your Friday doing...um, something.
