Hockey Gods are Angry
Clank! We hit the post. Clank! We hit the post again.
We lost by one goal. We lost yet another player to injury.
Last year, we were fourth in man games lost to injury. We are giving it a good run again this season to be a leader in man games lost.
Tom Poti was hurt in the first period. Hence we didn’t have Poti, Jurcina and Morrisonn on D in the lineup. We didn’t have Semin, Knuble, Gordon, Laing and Nylander in the lineup front. We didn’t have Theodore either in goal. That is goofy, huh? $25 million in payroll NOT playing.
We still could have won that game but missing this many players does scramble the game plan and the rhythm of the team. No one feels sorry for us. We can’t use injuries as an excuse. We just have to tough it out.
And because the hockey gods are angry, we play yet tonight - in Toronto - back to back games.
I shall make my sacrifices to the hockey gods this afternoon. Try to appease them and make them take pity on our mortal souls. As is said, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Go Caps!
“I’m not allowed to comment on penalties and why,” Anderson said. "Obviously I didn’t agree with them. … If you saw what happened in front of our bench, Cooke went by and slew-footed him. That’s what started it. At some point you have to say that’s enough. I don’t mind what he did.”
- Dupes-Malkin-Feds is a legit line right now. Big time chances.
- Only reason this game was close was because Hedberg was playing circa 2001 playoffs.
- Talbot had a penalty shot.
- From Paul P.
- Hope Chris Thornburn falls down a flight of stairs.
- Dive of the century:
- Bourque missed a wide open net.
The standoff continues. Trust us, we are committed to our Bourque demands. wW'll make the Waco standoff look like a charity event
P.S. how come no one told us Don Cannon got arrested week? [kiss fm]
We need to know these things.
p.s.s. No spell check or grammar checks. suck it

We swear. We were ready to end our little hissy fit and recap a game.
Not this one.
Not like this.

The NHL has had some major blown calls, including this one last night in the Wings/Dallas game.
That was such an obvious miscarriage, such a clear, blistering prison washroom assault of a call...that it’s almost impossible to believe Toronto missed it. If they didn’t, if they overturned it, could LaRue have simply ignored them out of sheer embarrassment? Not likely, but something idiotic happened.
And nothing will be done. Nothing. LaRue, of course, is one of Gary’s best. A ref in last year’s Stanley Cup Final, so you know he has to be good, right?
I’m wondering what the reaction to this will be from the MSM and blogging “elite”. I’m wondering who has the nad to call this exactly what it is...another example of a travesty by the most inept professional sports league in North America.
Oh. That’s right. It’s just another Wing fan and a conspiracy theory, right? Ok. Go with that if you want, but I’d suggest you watch this joke real close before stepping out on that branch.
It’s no conspiracy. It’s reality and we all just accept it. We, all hockey fans, just bend over and accept it. We accept the worst officiating in sports. We accept a crooked, incompetent commissioner. We just take it because we love hockey and we love our teams.
It’s time somebody stood up for the fan. The guy to do that may be the guy who hung up the skates yesterday. He’ll never be a commissioner, but he can definitely be a voice to be reckoned with.
It’s sickening and embarrassing what we’ll put up with. If you’re a fan of the NHL, you’re nothing more than an idiot pawn. And I’m right there with you.
