be red

So last night’s game was pretty sweet. I’ve seen a couple Ottawa – New Jersey games before, and they’ve always been 1-0 snore-fests. This one was great, starting with everyone being surprised by Alfredsson popping one top-shelf less than five minutes into the first. There was a half-second of silence while everyone realized what happened, […]

but I don’t wanna be a sens fan

so. the leafs won last night, but it wasn’t enough to sneak into the playoffs after the Islanders beat the Devils in a shootout to take the last spot in the east. with the leafs eliminating montreal last night and the oilers self-destructing half a season ago, we’re left with three canadian teams in the […]

still laughing

Every time I see this clip, I can’t help but laugh. I love the Leafs, and while Tucker has finally started to play hockey (now that the whine twins of Quinn and Domi are gone), he’s still not my favorite player in the league. Kovalev, of the Canadiens, takes a high stick from Tucker at […]

Hrmm, I guess some people didn’t like the memo, after all. Seven games into the season the Flyer’s GM Bobby Clarke was allowed to retire (although after all the effluent that has flowed from his mouth the last decade, I think they should have fired his ass), and Hitchcock was shown the door. Clarke leaving […]

sending a message

While I can’t claim I like Ken Hitchcock, coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, I do respect how he operates. His goaltender, Robert Esche, was a little stinky to open the season, and hasn’t played since. Recently, when asked about Hitchcock, Esche stated “I don’t try getting in his head, that’s for sure. It’s an empty […]

that’s “zdeno” with a “b”

Today, I have to admit, I am really, really happy that I’m not a Sens fan. That said, I think Mr. Chara has made a colossal mistake in signing with the Bruins. Unless, of course, it’s all about the 7.5 big per year and not about the game. In that case, good deal! I’m still […]

ron maclean vs. colin campbell

During the second intermission of Game 4 of the finals on Monday, Ron MacLean interviewed Colin Campbell and took him to task for some of the calls and lack of calls during the playoffs. Campbell tried to spin it a little with the old “what do you want us to do, it’s the playoffs, and […]


So… umm… San Jose? I hate to stoop to this level, especially since I’m 0-4, but what the hell. To all you boo-birds in the land of eBay, y’all can go fuck off and die now. Go Oilers!

0 for 3.5

With Edmonton winning last night’s game, I am on the verge of not picking the winner in every single playoff series of the second round. I didn’t think Anaheim or Carolina were that good, I should’ve known better with Ottawa, and we’ll see if Edmonton’s got the grit to finish it off at what is […]

game on!

The Needham boys always worried that their sister was adopted. She was very politically correct, declaring in the middle of dinner how inappropriate our conduct was, and then leaving (more food for us). She also didn’t swear a whole lot. Thankfully, over the years, those fears have been put to rest. My sister knows how […]
