For those not previously aware, I’m easing into a new position (that’s what she said), so my presence at MYFO has been sparse, to say the least, over the last few weeks. But as of yesterday, I am fully functional (again…that’s what she said) and should be back full time. With that in mind, we have, after the jump, a Making Puck themed by my favorite movie.
I can’t hear you, you’re trailing off and did I catch a niner in there? Were you calling from a walkie-talkie? The Ducks started off fine, but they sort of trailed off towards the end. Anaheim scored 3 goals early to take a 3-1 lead, but the Kings whipped off two goals in the last period. Anaheim saved their points in the shootout to take the win, with Andy McDonald slotting home the clincher.
You better pray to the god of skinny punks that this wind doesn’t pick up, cos I’ll come over there, and jam an oar up your ass! Sparked by an early 2nd period fight, the Blues pocketed four 2nd period goals to take down the Wings 4-3. David Perron is enjoying his rookie year, knocking home two goals on consecutive shots. Not bad for a guy who’s been borrowing money from teammates, because he doesn’t have a Social Security number yet to open a bank account. Also, note to the HD Network, your sideline reporter has no business holding a microphone. Also, as one of our wonderful commenters pointed out…there’s no sidelines in hockey. We need a new name for whoever takes Mumpy McMumperson’s face.
Okay, and life preservers, these… we may need. Although what are the odds of us actually hitting a lake? My money says if anything, it’s gonna be a mountain. Toronto slammed facefirst into the proverbial mountain, letting Komisarek out on a breakaway to score an unassisted goal just a couple seconds into overtime. The nearest Leafs player to Komisarek was sitting on the bench…and that may have included the goalie.
My so-called family deserted me, Michelle’s mad at me, I lost the factory, the town’s going under, and I’m out of a job. Could have done without that. The Panthers must have felt pretty good about themselves. They’re up 3-2, give up a meaningless penalty with just a minute or so left in the game, but their penalty killing has been….oh. So, of course, Hossa scores the tying goal with 3 FUCKING SECONDS left, and Kovalchuk knocked home the game winner.
You guys want this or American Gladiators? When the fucking AP calls your game ugly, you know there are problems. The Wild and the Flames played one of the most flat games in history. Huselius scored the game winner to put the Flames up 3-2.
