So the Desert Dogs keep fighting like a pack of wild animals and force a game seven against Scum. A 5-2 beating in the Joe is no small accomplishment, and now it’s back to the land of the Howling Fans for the final game. My only question is, does Shane Doan get the go ahead to play in what could be the biggest game of his career?
The Twinkies help Vancouver end the dream season for the Los Angeles Kings. Nothing to be ashamed of here. This Kings team is really a player or two away from being really good. Nice coaching job this year by Terry Murray too. I guess you can reinvent yourself. Although if Chicago beats Nashville, the Canucks face the Blackhawks. For Luongo’s sake, he needs to erase that seven goal disaster from last year. Is facing the Hawks something you are looking forward to Bobby?
Tonight the Caps take on the Habs in a series that many thought should have been over. Washington had a chance to eliminate Montreal, but gave up a couple of quick goals in the first, causing coach Bruce Boudreau to comment that “We played like crap”. But did you catch it when he called goalie Semyon Varlamov a “Fucking Idiot” for the too many men penalty? Here’s D.C. Sports Blog’s version of the story.
WOW: THIS TWEET JUST CAME IN AT 11::45 A.M. TODAY. JACQUES LEMAIRE HAS RETIRED AS COACH OF THE NEW JERSEY DEVILS!!!! My source, Pierre LeBrun!!!!! This is big news! He’s stay on in some other capacity.
Tomas Vanek returns to the lineup tonight for the Sabres. This is a good thing. No word yet on Marc Savard for the Bruins. This has been one of the best matches in the East so far. Good old time hockey.
No suspension for Marian Hossa of the Hawks as they go to Music City for game six. Unexpectedly I think this has been one of the better matchups in the playoffs. If you haven’t watched any of it, you’re missing out. And don’t turn it off until it’s over!
Go to Versus for all the replay action.
Quick note for my Florida Panther fans. We need a nickname for you guys. My Rats? Help me out? Anyway, it’s been really quiet here. Nothing being reported in the papers, on the web, nowhere can I find any news about anything. As we all know the only news recently was the 4th Period Offseason sponsoship with Lexus for our off season news. Which so far has accomplished nothing, other than maybe a rotation of tires!
Thanks for reading.
