The Morning Skate is fucking happy on Wednesday, April 6th

Have you ever seen better use of the letters "x" and "e" in your life?

Bullet points for what you missed while dreaming of The CHannabis Cup...
  • Well if you didn't enjoy last night's Habs 2 Hawks 1 (OT) you should be checked for signs of life. Just a fabu game all around that clinched a playoff spot, bitCHes! 60+ minutes of kick-ass action with playoff intensity. Tits with gorgeous assists on both Squid's goal and PFK's PP winner in OT. Heroic effort by TFS for stretches in the 2nd and 3rd.  We could barely sleep last night. More later today;
  • Not only that, the Leaf was eliminated the minute the Sabres beat the Bolts, rendering their 3-2 (SO) loss to the Caps meaningless. What a night;
  • The Sens of all teams beat the Flyers, giving the Caps sole possession of first place in the East;
  • The Pens just refuse to go away in the standings, are a mere point behind the Flyers after beating the Devils 4-2;
  • Plenty of games out West too (like we care) the most important of which was the Stars beating the BJs to remain within sight of 8th;
  • The Preds win over the Thrash have them on the cusp of clinching a spot;
  • There was gambling at the Habs game last night. With the Hawks' backup goalie on the bench.
Never have we enjoyed the dulcet tones of Dave Ransdorf as much as on these long-form video highlights. WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Woo! Passes on the stick? Shots actually on goal? As Austin Powers says it: Yeah, baby, yeah!

As for Moronto... I'll give it to them, I thought they would be out by February. Thanks for not giving out another early first round draft pick to Boston, fellas.

With all due respect, I can think of quite a few uses of the letters "e" and "x" that are far better than this. "sEX after seeing the leaf get an -e and the Habs get an -x", now that's an awesome use of E and X. At least I imagine it would be.

It would be shameful for me to brag so I'll just say this : fucking awesome, Habs rule en tabarnak, I can't believe they did it with all those injuries, PFK is the next coming of Bobby Orr (minus the aura, plus a killer slapshot and crazy spinoramas), TFS really is the TFS, and let's all hope the phucktards continue to slide and the pen'uins win their last games so that we can focus on finishing 7th.

Destro-roulette is so much more fun when Gino-less pitty is part of the potential prizes.

And a good day full of fresh air to all!

Playoffs!

GYFCHG!!!!

Price and PK are so cute. God damn could you ask for better franchise players? [If they ever get rid of PK I will love any team he doth play for]

The Soobie defensive play, drawn penalty, and then goal were an outstanding end to a great hockey game. The story in the Glob & Maul this morning was about the system choking the life out of Hawks, but it didn't look exactly like that to me... This looked like last year's playoff team, with an aggressive forecheck and quick transitions. Both goalies were great and Squid was pretty unlucky.

The world is a good place this morning.

I dunno, I think PFK is close to being the TFS2. I can't believe that on TSN they were still talking about his "overly-exuberant" celebration. Are they fucking nuts? The kid scores the overtime goal that clinches a playoff spot for the Habs and he is supposed to be "subdued" to show his respect. Fuck you.

Go PK go, take all that passion into the playoffs.

Big game Saturday night - Bulldogs vs. the Marlies. :o)

Best line of the night was Price's when he commented on his great friend's celebration "I dropped him".

Kmaxx said...

As I said earlier today in the stream - the morning sunrise over the Kentish Hills brought with it the best possible start to any Habs Fan dat. Habs in - leaf out. And don't let anyone tell PFK to calm down. That kind of enthusiasm is what we need. I've got money on fuckface cherry showing squid's reaction on his goal vs. PFK's reaction and calling it an example of his class, blah blah blah - not that PFK's goal was any more important or anything - it wasn't like he'd just won his team a playoff clinching game in overtime or anything, so there was really no reason for that type of stuff, was there...just wait and see!

Another thoroughly competent effort.

Here on Canada's south coast the sun is shinning, and the toxic fog coming off Niagara falls sparkle like tiny screen flares. The video of PFK load and fire, load fire and score keeps playing over in my head as I drive in the parade. Then I rearened the car in front of my, but it was okay cause he was a Habs fan as well.

GYGHG

It would be perfect if before the Leaf game Saturday, PFK presents the Leafs with golf bags.

If the Leafs were an airplane they would be an F35

any organization with Pierre McGuire on staff is not allowed to complain about anyone else being "overly-exuberant"
