#2505686 Apparently it can get worse in Vancouver.

Posted by DickieDunn on 04 April 2014 - 07:10 AM

The way Gillis manhandled the goaltending situation in Vancouver = player mismanagement.
This mess started long before Tortorella's hiring. 

Then Tortorella went into the mess, dropped his pants, took a dump and lit the whole thing on fire.

#2506122 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by Richdg on 05 April 2014 - 07:49 AM

Have to love this time of year. Checking scores every few minutes, logging in for the updated standings, doing the math to see how many possible points other teas have left vs us.... it is GREAT! Not as great as running away with things, but still a ton of fun. BTW if I have done the math correctly-we need 2 more wins and 1 NJ loss to clinch! Then we win the tie breakers on ROW.

#2506111 4/5 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs Red Wings 3

Tough game tonight, i'm glad we racked up as many points as we have these past few games so this one isn't as desperate. It will be a challenge but I think our boys can overcome the odds. 


Lines are a complete guess, I am not going to be able to re-update it before tomorrow night's game so I took a crack at what I think the starting lines might look like going by what was rolled in the game against Buffalo. Someone will post more accurate ones as game time closes in i'm sure. 


Monster is confirmed to play, Price is not but highly likely to get the start.


Get this win guys and make the path to the playoffs that much easier for our remaining games.

Psh, I don't fear the Habs! I'll never truly fear a Therrien team. But, generally, they've really been clicking - and being without Murray makes them that much better. Plus, it's the Bell Center.
Basically, what we did in the first period tonight? Do that for three periods.

You mean hockey is supposed to be played for three periods, not just one? Quick someone tell the Wings.

If we don't win this game, we don't deserve to make the playoffs.

does it? really? this is what a classic let down game is in the websters dictionary? can we get a reference please 


Just looked it up see number 6 specifically



[let-doun] Show IPA
1.   a decrease in volume, force, energy, etc.: a letdown in sales; a general letdown of social barriers.
2.   disillusionment, discouragement, or disappointment: The job was a letdown.
3.   depression; deflation: He felt a terrible letdown at the end of the play.
4.   the accelerated movement of milk into the mammary glands of lactating mammals upon stimulation, as by massage or suckling.
5.  Aeronautics . the descent of an aircraft from a higher to a lower altitude preparatory to making an approach and landing or to making a target run or the like.
6.  game a game where the players from Detroit decide that they will win games on talent alone and not a combination of hustle and talent.  Then decide to play with 10 minutes left in game down  2 goals. Usually occurs after a heroic game/moment but has been seen based on opponents after a west coast road trip.

Datsyuk returns tonight!! Welcome back Pav!
Buffalo is down their first two goaltenders, along with Stewart and Myers. Their lineup looks pretty awful, and we have our best Center back in. If we can't beat Buffalo tonight there is something seriously wrong, this should be an easy two points for us.
Detroit wins 7-2, Glendening scores his first (ha!), Nyquist does something amazing, Pav shows us why he was missed so much.

Hope the Bruins take out their frustration on the Leafs tomorrow  :bye1:


Haha I would HATE to be the Laughs tomorrow....

Probably my favorite game this season. Every single odd was in Boston's favor toward the middle of the 3rd. If we took it to Vegas we'd be millionaires. 


Unbelievable and stunning win, i'm so amped up right now.

I'm actually afraid of what happens when Dats returns soon - I hope the kids just keep plugging and keep trying to be the difference makers rather than deferring to datsyuk.

Put Edzo between the benches just once. I bet both teams shank pucks at him.

Edzo's head won't fit between the benches

Edzo most likely knows he is pissing us off - we are letting him win. I think its time to hit mute. 

#2504447 Dive of the Year

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 01 April 2014 - 08:36 PM

Good lord.

Maybe the ref had...you know...like razor blades tucked in his knuckles? I mean you never know, we don't know his struggles. Coming up from the wrong side of the tracks and whatnot. He had to learn how to take care of himself, no one else was going to. What with his dad leaving when he was four and his mom working three jobs just to make ends meet. He had to make a name for himself on the streets, so no one would mess with his mute brother Clarence. "Razor Fists" they would call him. Now he lies awake at night, wondering how things could have been different.

Or, you know, Crysby is a poopy diaper diving baby.
