The Game Day Skate for Tuesday, April 5th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of winning a national championship...
  • So the Bs were winning 3-0 when they collectively decided "hey we can screw the Habs if we give up now" which they did. Rangers 5, Bs 3;
  • That leaves the Rangers tied with the Habs for 6th, though the Habs have a game in hand;
  • By our count that eliminated the Leaf, but TSN says if the Leaf win ALL their games in regulation and the Sabres lose ALL their games in regulation AND the Canes get no more than 2 points in their games the Leaf would still have a chance. So hey, it's possible!
  • San Jose clinched their division with a win over the Kings;
  • That's it? That's it;
  • Your power rankings roundup has the Habs in 14th (ESPN), 17th (THN), and 13th (TSN).
A hungry and angry Chicago team comes calling this evening. Two points and it's the playoffs guaranteed. Please, pretty please, with sugar on top get them.

If for no other reason then to screw the leaf....
GYMFHG.
This should be okay tonight. Hawks are a good team they have talent and we look like the underdogs. We shouldn't win... in bazzaro Habs world that means we'll pull it out tonight. Right? Right? *reaCHes for the whiskey*

Bizaroo world, I'm in. CHanibis win tonite, then Chocula should rest the vets until playoffs. It makes no difference who we play in the playoffs, no team has the required attention span to beat us. The only way we lose is if they get a Ritalin prescription for the whole team.

So bring up a fistfull of Bulldogs, and if it does not fuck up his playoff run louis louis louis Leblanc.

@Steve - Buddy - Calm the fuck down and don't join bizarro world just yet. We need LLB like a hole in the head. We'll have his shit to deal with next year and well beyond that so don't go there right now. Let's just get this done tonight. All I would like is for the Habs that showed up to play the Devils to make a return to the ice again tonight, kick some Hawk ass and then we can all chill knowing that no matter what those cocksuckers at HNIC have to say it won't matter one bit because the leaf are going to be playing golf on Sunday and the Habs will be getting ready for the playoffs.

Now GYMFCHG!

Win one for Patches, for Lacy, for unsung heroes who only make 5.5 million a year. Its the battle for smurf supremacy.

Bruins lost a 3-0 lead. That's not screwing the Habs. In Boston, that's called playoff hockey.

@Number31, from last night, I've heard of Pascal Vincent, I forget who he coaches at the moment. He'd probably have to do a year of apprenticeship in the AHL before being given the keys to the Habs. Looks like we are stuck with Chokula for the time being.

I'm afraid that Muller will be coaching somewhere else next season. I'll be sad to see him go, just like when he was traded back in '95.

On to tonight, get'r done tonight motherfuckers!! I don't want to have to suffer through another "must win" scenario against the fucking leaf. My nerves won't take it.

Steve said...

@Maritimer, I like that get'r done attitude, what a great phrase.

@Steve, my neck is a little red today...

I am allowed to want the Laffs in the playoffs? Every round the Laffs last in the playoffs translates to a worst 1st rounder for the Bruins. I think I hate the B's more than I do the Laffs.

*ducks*

@ Tom I need a new newspaper after you made me spew coffee over my current one

Kmaxx said...

@Ezzeloharr - NO!

Steve said...

@Ezzeloharr - that used to be my position but the Leaf Echo chamber got to me and I just want them to STFU.

@ the Maritimer

Pascale Vincent used to be the coach and GM for Cape Breton, now he is in Montréal.

Vincent is a great coach. LLB is in great hands.

I'd put good money on Muller coaching in NJ next year. Though they may be a bit gunshy about hiring an inexperienced head coach after the McLean debacle.

Habs are going to win tonight. No question. Probably a shutout.
However Daddy, winning in no way screws the leaf. Other than to say we ARE IN MOTHERFUCKERS!

Leafs won't get in. It's a FOREgone conclusion.
