#2509565 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 April 2014 - 12:09 PM

Yes, my unseen internet princess, I love your pretty face as I imagine it to look. ;)

 

But yeah - #Lumbus

Is what for real? My beautiful face? My sparkling wit? I assure you, it's not too good to be true. If you're referring to the #Lumbus thing, I believe it was started by the Kings official twitter account...last season? My memory is not as amazing as my other attributes, sorry.

Excited to hear Vokoun was recalled from the AHL, apparently ready for his inevitable Game 3 start. #Penguins

 

 

HAHAhahahahahaaha!!!!!!!!!!




#2509551 Kyle Quincey Appreciation thread

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 April 2014 - 11:35 AM

Thank you for being an uninjurable iron horse this year. You are one of only two Red Wings to play in all 82 games.

 

Despite all that ice time you still managed to come up only 5th in defensive scoring and 18th in overall team scoring. 

 

You averaged slightly more than 1 boneheaded penalty minute per game (88 minutes in 82 games) - which, coincidentally, is the team high for penalty minutes this year. 

 

Your four goals speak volumes about your inability to find the twine and yet - you never stop trying. Little the Little Kyle That Could - you rank 10th on the team in shots with 106. Your 3.8% shooting percentage actually makes us miss Dan Cleary's 6.3%. Your single GWG must have stirred something down deep that encouraged you like little angel on your shoulder. Every time you touched the puck that little guy could be heard shouting, "SHOOT KYLE, SHOOT! You're good enough, you're smart enough and doggone it, people like you (more than MIKAEL SAMUELSSON)!"

 

You points production was damn near equal home and away - 6 home and 7 away, but your +/- shows that you really get nervous at the Joe - +6 on the road and -11 at home. You did this all while saying, "Damn the critics! My -5 is a meaningless stat anyway!"

 

Having said all that, you did spend an average of 30 more seconds on ice in all of the winning games than the losing games - 21:02 vs. 20:35 - so that makes it clear - MOAR QUINCEY = MOAR WINS!

It's almost required NOT to make sense! That's what makes sports fandom great!

 

 It's all very childish but that's why we have sports, right?




#2509519 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 April 2014 - 10:46 AM

The series that we're all here for. 

 

I think it goes long (6 or 7) and the Wings move on to the next round.

 

After stomping through the season, the Bruins only had 2 teams that they lost their season series' against and the Wings were one of them.

 

The X Factor is obviously Rask - but 'playoff style' Jimmy Howard can be quite the X Factor himself.

 

Just hope our offense doesn't go anemic - because as Pavel said, "We not score, is hard to win."




#2509484 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 April 2014 - 07:35 AM

aren't our chances 100% now? ;)


There's still a chance that we get bumped and Pittsburg gets a first round bye. It's called the "Crosby Exemption" and can be enacted by a call from Sidney to Gary on a special pink princess phone in Mario's basement. The exemption would cause Columbus to play the Bruins and the Wings to be instantly eliminated from contention.

#2502531 kid gets blasted by the glass CBJ v. MTL game

Posted by FireCaptain on 27 March 2014 - 11:26 PM

Thanks, Captain Funkiller. ;)

That's one of many reasons why you shouldn't be banging on the glass.


Is it still OK to yell at those d-bags on my tv that INSIST on standing up and waving at the camera during Wings games at the Joe?

 

Half the time, the idiots in question block part of the faceoffs.

Don Cherry showed this and said it served the person right for standing up and blocking the view of other fans. Maybe he has a point, but to me it sounds too much like "this is the etiquette of a hockey game" like they're at the opera. to me relax let people get in to the game. No one in a mosh pit would say "excuse me, sir you're blocking my view."

 

And yes video funny, and yes me drunk. GO WINGS!!!!!!!

I've had this happen to a couple beers that were resting on the ledge, but this kid gets decked by the glass during a check.

#2501744 % chance of making the playoffs

Old stuff for safekeeping  - newest info HERE.

I'll try and update this daily with the latest projections from Sports Club Stats.

 

http://www.sportsclu...ic/Detroit.html

 

Today's (3/25/14) chance: 68.7%. 

What we need tonight (all %ages assume regulation win/loss) (red is status with undesired outcome):

 

Wings win                          (CLB loss)      - +13.5%     (-11.3) 

Blues win                           (TOR loss)     - +2.3%       (-3.0)  

Kings win                           (WSH loss)     - +2.5%       (-2.1) 

Brooklyn Islanders win       (CAR loss)     - +0.2%       (-0.1) 

Panthers win                     (OTT loss)      - +0.1%       (-0.1) 

Buffalo win                         (MTL loss)      - +0.1%       (-0.0) 

 

Current standing: 7th in the East - primary wildcard spot (tied with TOR, but ROW is in our favor - also, 2 games in hand over Toronto).

 

What a difference a week makes - 3/18/14 - 35.2% ---> 3/25/14 - 68.7%

Woohoo! I did something right! Haha. We almost doubled our percentage chances!

Our chances moved from 35.2% to 68.9% since this thread was created. This thread must be good luck

#2499540 Dallas Eakins loses his cool...thanks to some water

Posted by FireCaptain on 23 March 2014 - 12:35 PM

By Canadian law, didn't they have to chant "cin-quante, cin-quante!" as well?              

 

By early in the third period, all the fans were waiting on was to find out who would win the 50/50 take of some $66,000.

 

“Fif-tee-fif-tee, fif-tee fifee!” the chant went up. Sure enough, when the winning number was drawn, later than normal, with just about four minutes remaining, the exodus was on.
