Making Puck: Halloween Hangover

Drunk Pumpkin

All of us at MYFO hope everyone out there had a safe and happy Halloween. Myself, I found needles in only three pieces of candy but I did find a razor blade in a caramel apple. What? I’m over 30 and still trick or treat? Yeah, that’s right. I don’t even like candy – it’s simply a great way to “case” a house for a potential burglary.  Well, enough about me – on to the scores. Let’s go with a Smashing Pumpkins theme today, how’s that for witty?? Yeah, not so much.

Bury Me: Jay Pandolfo had a hat trick for the Devils with John Madden assisting on all three goals as well as scoring a goal himself as New Jersey buried the Lightning 6-1. The Lightning have dropped all 5 of their road games this season.

Suffer: Carolina coach Peter Laviolette was at a “loss for words” following the game regarding two diving penalties, both by referee Brad Watson, called on the Hurricanes in their 4-2 loss to the Florida Panthers. Seven penalties were assessed on Carolina in the 3rd period alone – Florida took advantage, coverting on two power play goals in the period – one by Richard Zednik and the other by Nathan Horton.

I Am One: Mike Modano briefly tied Phil Housley’s career mark of 1,232 points, the most ever by a U.S.-born player, only to have an assist taken away in the Stars 5-4 loss to the Blackhawks. Chicago halted a nine game losing streak in Dallas with the win, their last victory coming on March 7, 2001. Jason Williams had two goals for Chicago, including the game winner, and Nikolai Khabibulin made19 saves, snapping the Blackhawks three game losing streak.

Crush: Jason Chimera scored two goals and Pascal Leclaire stopped 33 shots as the Blue Jackets topped the Los Angeles Kings 4-1. Kings coach Marc Crawford could only stand behind the bench with that hair of his while his team had another lackluster performance in front of the home fans. Columbus had been winless in their last seven visits to La La Land.



  1. If there is a bad throwing up pumpkin picture, I haven’t seen it.

  2. That is a quality pumpkin there. And, is it resting on a tin from the Popcorn Factory?
