The Morning Skate for Monday, April 25th

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of a day off today...
  • PHucktards force a Game 7 with an OT win;
  • So do the Blackhawks with an OT win of their own, thanks maybe to Luuuu coming into the game as the backup;
  • See? Game 7's are possible!
  • Except for Anaheim, who are the victims of the Preds first ever playoff series win;
  • The Bulldogs have advanced to the next round. See, our Bulldogs can do it too!
  • Except that DDD has some mysterious knee injury.
Happy Easter Monday everyone. CHeer up, it's a whole new week! Can't be worse than last week, right? Of  course we should be playing Game 6 tonight but Lady Gaga is more important. Begin debate about the musical talents and / or cultural relevance of Lady Gaga NOW.

MEDIA WHORING UPDATE -  Yours truly will be on CBC Daybreak tomorrow at 6:40 AM. Like you people are up at that hour. Fuck, we're not up at that hour.

I love this quote

"I got a piece of it with my knob and I'm not sure exactly what happened," Luongo said. "I think Smith just chipped it over me on the rebound."

I just don't know why they had to insert the [stick] before the word "knob", it would have been much funnier.

the Maritimer said...

You know what, I'm feeling rather optimistic today. I think we'll be watching Game 7 Wednesday night.

The President's trophy winners sure are making it interesting. Just imagine how they are feeling. The Habs weren't supposed to win a game and the Canuckleheads were supposed to steamroll their way to the finals. Funny how other teams have a different opinion about that.

Jack Todd has nice things to say about Price and Subban today. Who knew?

the Maritimer said...

Good morning Soperman. You are up bright and early today. How's things in the great city of Halifax?

soperman said...

I am fine, Maritimer and I hope everything is well with you and Saint John (my favourite city in NB).

I am going to open the cottage next weekend and start commuting from New Germany if my gas budget holds out.

the Maritimer said...

@Soperman, nice day here in Saint John, finally starting to warm up a bit, although I am still lighting up the wood stove downstairs from time to time.

My 'Dogs are still playing, can't figure out how Lewiston beat Montreal and Louis Leblanc! Louis Leblanc! out, although he was playing injured apparently.

I'm putting my Mustang GT on the road this week. Don't know how much I'll be driving it. Like you said the fuel budget is taking a beating. I think my 18 speed two wheeler will see more action this summer.

wv = Habs fans will be dealing with some "steress" this week.

soperman said...

@Maritimer

Mustang GT? Sweeet

Good Luck against the Maineaics or however they spell their stupid name.

Caduceus said...

Good morning.

29, this study may be of interest to you.

Steve said...

Just wondering how confident the Habs, loosely called brain trust was, when they scheduled a bunch of concerts in the middle of the first round, it seems they have exceeded their own expectations.

I can not get any traction on my Habs Mojo. I would rather of had a lottery pick than this first round so far.

soperman said...

Stay with us Steve!!!

If you remember last year there were some tense moments and we are playing better this year than last - far more scoring CHances this year...

GYFHG!!!!

soperman said...

Doesn't Jesus Price rise again on Easter Monday?

Steve said...

More eliusive that theGod Particle is the Gomez, backcheck.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

Sup guys, just stopping by to say GO BRUINS! and do a little suicide check.

Everyone still alive? Good.

moeman said...

Odds that mike richards gets suspended?

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

@moeman not high enough, he's human garbage

ti-cul said...

same bag as chara.

Steve said...

No way Richards is suspended, Ed Snider and Jacobs run the NHL, no touch these teams in Kagaoroo court.

Stinky said...

Just read Richards is not being suspended.

wv: Richards is the begist ass.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

There's no way they suspend Captain Comcast for a game 7.

Steve said...

Justice must not only be, Justice must be seen to have been done, you can see Justice on Comcast.

Habsfan10 said...

PK Subban thinks Mike Richards needs to learn some respect. Or that he's just a fucking cheapshot artist fucker. Potato, potahto.

the Maritimer said...

Mike Richards is a dirty, backstabbing, hit from behind, headhunting, fucking asshole. I'd like to see Patrick Kaleta give him a dose of his own medicine.

He will be the face of NBC/Comcast.

Cherry loves him.

That's all we need to know.

soperman said...

@Steve

funny - maybe if they could develop a grand unification theory, the defensive Gomez conundrum would be solvable....

Why would they suspend Mike Richards? He is not responsible for his actions because he is still upset that Subban doesn't "give" him the respect he so richly deserves. Phucktard.

Steve said...

No Justice no peace,

So we have Farat, giving the fans the finger, not another player, the fucking fans, the sacred heart of Jesus fans, no suspension.

Next Richards mugs Connley, Richards a repeat offender, no suspension.

Mr Molsons Vagina call for Buffalo and Montreal to boycott game 6/7 until these players are suspended.

soperman said...

I am confused. I never liked Lady GaGa but she does have some talent by that video - don' t slag
me but she sounds a bit like Diana Krall (forgive me Diana).

I still don't like her but I respect her talent (a bit)

bea.habs.fan said...

I have to agree that it makes little sense to schedule concerts during playoffs.

plus 2 playoff games in a row? doesn't that garantee that whoever faces the winner of this series will be a shoe-in (players don;t get to recharge)?

Moey said...

@CH,
You better get down on your knees & pray your Bruins win this series because if Markov, Gorges & Max were in the lineup you wouldn't have a chance in hell and you know it. It's now or NEVER.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

@Moey

I've heard this "if Markov were in the lineup THINGS WOULD BE DIFFERENT" talk one too many times over the years. Did he get signed directly to the IR or what?

Moey said...

@CH,

I named 3 players not one. To make it a fair fight both teams need to be at full strength. If the B's blow it, be worried, that's all.

soperman said...

Very funny, Moey.

@corn-hard

given your broon-loving affliction, it must suck to have those CH initials.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

@soperman Why should I change? They're the ones that suck!

@Moey that also means we get Marc Savard back. And santa claus is real.

Alan said...

@CH earlier in the series you barely even came on here cuz your team wasn't doing so hot. You have won 2 overtimes and one game outright. Lets not be that stereotypical bruins fan we all hoped you weren't by coming around only when you're winning. But guys you have to give it to the bruins. at least they aren't winning through gooning it up and their usual cheap shit tactics. These have actually been good games to watch just disappointing outcomes. GYFB GO

Steve said...

Hi Cornelius Hardenbergh,

because both the Habs and the Bruins look like they have no fucking chance of beating your average NHL team, I am increasing ambivalent about the outcome ( I run through the 5 stages quick)

But you now have a severe case of blue and white disease, and soon Karerale will be saying, "what do you mean there is another series, I never play this many games ever, no way"

ti-cul said...

hey corney, must be hard to cheer for a team that has 16 Canadians,3 yanks. USA USA USA.

And for fuck sake, please take Don Cherry back

soperman said...

@corn-hard

i don't want you to change, you are the troll that keeps on giving

Habsfan10 said...

Easy now, folks. Cornelius is no troll. He's a Bruins fan, which means he wasn't raised properly, but despite that glaring flaw in his genetic makeup he's a lot more welcome here than a lot of people we deal with.

HabsFan29 said...

@10 - is it Cornelius' genes or upbringing that's the problem? you say both. it's one or the other, dammit! god love you Cornelius. be nice to us when we lose

@soperman - don't feel bad about your Lady Gaga position, i agree, i chose that clip for a reason

Jebus (Price) will rise again tomorrow

soperman said...

@ corn-hard

I am sorry for using the "t" word.

Steve said...

Fucking amazingly good news, she is back on the market, wonder if a seat at game 6 would do the trick?

Not Geoff Molson said...

@cornhard

Wait...Santa's not real? Next you're going to tell me that the Easter Bunny doesn't shit chocolate eggs and that the CBC didn't admit on air that they were biased to the Leafs.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

@ ti-cul It's actually pretty much just the one yank now. All of our forwards are canucks or David Krejci. Defense is The Slovakian Devastator, a couple albertans, Kaberle, and Seidenberg.

@steve I'm glad you've given up already

@HF10 <3
@HF29 <3 as well

As for the "well you're not here when the bruins LOSE" I don't spend nearly as much time online on the weekend. At least, not on sites like this.

I love this blog, you magnificent bastards. I just don't want the Habs to ever make you happy ever again.





...if Price rises again does that mean more 5-hole goals? Because I don't care where they cross the goal line.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

if I missed anyone you can assume it's out of a combination of spite and laziness

Habsfan10 said...

@ Cornelius? Spite and laziness? Are you sure you're not a Habs fan?

lawyergirl77 said...

CH: "If I missed anyone you can assume it's out of a combination of spite and laziness"

Poor thing. Must be the same spite and laziness that keeps him a Bruins fan, in spite of the fact that there are so many better, more intelligent alternatives out there.

There there, Cornelius... There there... (Kisses!!)

lawyergirl77 said...

@10 - We aren't spiteful and lazy. I really think that those are adjectives more properly applied to Flyers and Pens fans.

Complacent and arrogant with a ridiculous sense of entitlement? Now that's more like it!

moeman said...

"Complacent and arrogant with a ridiculous sense of entitlement? Now that's more like it!" = leaf fan and hnic crew.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

wait, are you saying that leaf fans are complacent and arrogant and entitled or that that's what they rightly say about habs fans?

Because you're right either way.

@HF10 there's no way the habs can claim spite and laziness as well as my goddamn initials. Those initials have been in my family going back generations!

lawyergirl77 said...

@CH - not that I want to answer for HF10 and, worst of all, answer with a Star Trek reference but...

Dude. We are the Borg and we will assimilate you. Resistance is futile, my friend.

@moe - touché re: HNIC and Leafs fans. But I would be lying if I didn't admit that significant chunks of the Habs fan base is the same way...

Steve said...

Habs fans are victimized elitists.

And I have not given up, just trying to keep massive waves of sobbing melancholy from engulfing me. On therapy that seems promising is to chant "serenity now"

moeman said...

Agreed lg.

I think Steve should be putting much more work in some of his lazyass comments. Get to work Steve or a coalition of Habs fans will CHew your reformed ass (don't tell me you'd enjoy that cuz I already know). NTTIAWWT.

Steve said...

@LG never met a complacent Habs fan, and you will not find many blind worshipers like Leaf fans.

If Montreal is to salvage anything out of this short, brutal and nasty post season debacle, GOMEZ must be benched for Game 6. It can only have good outcomes, we lose and the accounts put him back in the line up he has been humbled, we win and he comes back in the lineup humbled.

moeman said...

4 Steve, 29 and other FHF420ers,

Ways to Use Dryer Sheets that Have Nothing to Do with the Dryer: Put one inside a paper towel tube, and blow your weed smoke through it to keep from alerting the mom/wife/kids/prison guard to your stonering.

Moey said...

Hey, how can merely stating the facts to CH be construed as being mean? The truth hurts. *sulks off* *pouts*

moeman said...

Confirmed, no DDD.

CHicken or SM2?

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

@lg77 better than habs fans have tried to assimilate me and all have died

i've come to tan your hide. Because it's open season. DJ Huntin'

@moeman: Or, move out ya mom's house. get a dugout and take walks.

moeman said...

@Cornelius Hardenbergh, not sure what you mean but moved out of Mom's at the age of 19. Self-made man since. Enjoy Game 6.

moeman said...

hahaha hahaha hahaha how low can tsn go? hahaha hahaha hahaha on their 'panel' hahaha hahaha hahaha colby hahaha hahaha hahaha fucking hahaha hahaha hahaha armstrong hahaha hahaha hahaha nice pander to the stupid leaf fan hahaha hahaha hahaha colby hahaha hahaha hahaha fucking hahaha hahaha hahaha armstrong hahaha hahaha hahaha another headhunter on tsn hahaha hahaha hahaha

the Maritimer said...

@moeman, tsn set the bar pretty low when Tie Domi was one of their "analysts". They have no fucking scruples and will pander to the lowest common denominator (leaf fan) ad nauseum.

I'm not watching any hockey tonight so keep us posted if hnic mentions the Canadiens in a positive way.......hahahahahaha

ti-cul said...

@ maritimer: if they mention the Canadiens at all...

ti-cul said...

@corney: they died of boredom reading your blog.

moeman said...

Good catch the M.

tsn's domi experiment lasted what 2 games? Reasons;

- head to big for the boob toob?

- zero personality couldn't translate to through the boob toob?

- boob toob adds 10 lbs?

- james duthie's comedy stylings felt threatened

- leaf weren't winning?

- true hockey fans weren't over the cbc/hnic domi 1000th game celebration instead of Boom Boom Geoffrion's (may he rest in Peace) jersey # retirement, the day he died!

- TIEs to close to Belinda StronaCH?

Steve said...

I just wrote a 900 word gem that would have made me, forget about that.

Point one Habs fans have been victimized worse than any team in this league by bad management./

Point two, Habs fans are the elite fans of the NHL, no doubt, only Toronto has a history that starts to compare, and has a puppy dog intelligence to match.

Point Three. I do not love this team, Gomez is an STD in my lovestream. Furthermore only TFS and PFK and maybe Squid are not commodities you can pick up at the horse auction.

Point four, this team will not win the Stanley cup, they will not go as far as last year, and that makes them make me, make the crying game my favorite movie, okay I can still hope for a surprise at the end.

Steve said...

@Moeman fucking big head guys with lack of restraint do well in many countries, and now it is spreading to Canada. That Albain prince was royalty in Toronto, and he had on his resume nothing. He is now a millionare and fucking rich skanks everyday while others, can only comment, and it is a comment on our world, which has not changed since Ben Hur, but at least in the old days you had to have something to back up that back story.

moeman said...

Didn't Belinda drop the leaf fan hero?

Steve said...

This is really mean, and I can only say it because it concerns both a dillatene and a dildo. Whe she lost her boobs, he moved on.

the Maritimer said...

@moeman, all of the above plus he was too stupid to actually analyse anything. It didn't take tsn long to figure it out, yeah about two times and out for the Albanian Assassin.

Honestly, most of the players don't make for very good analysts. The unemployed coaches, though are usually excellent. Mactavish is good but Torterella was the best, he didn't suffer fools gladly. He got a three year extension today, good for Torts.

moeman said...

Good points the M.

rds has the same problem. Like I need to know what denis gauthier has to say.

moeman said...

Listening to millen yip makes me think gary galling is a fucking genius. cbc/hnic has scrapped the bottom of the barrel. All they need to do to cap off their sick experiment is to hire domi.

moeman said...

Hey Steve, where can I get one of those CANADA jackets? Gotta get me some props.

Steve said...

@Moeman Lockeheed Martin has started up a special division to make them, and when I retire I will be the President, winning

moeman said...

What do marek and moronson add?

Number31 said...

@moeman
Apparently they're the only ones that know how to use a computer.

FUCK! CHRIS FUCKING LEE DOING GAME 6.

moeman said...

n31, really? lee? Holy shit!
