Weed Against Speed: Hex, I think Dell offers insurance on toddler damage.

Weed Against Speed: I was trying to figure that out myself, Reasonable.
Reasonable Doubt: GOOOOOOAL
Reasonable Doubt: Backstrom with the nice re-direct
Hextall: Chris Osgood believes you are using the term “goalie” all too loosely.
Reasonable Doubt: Through campfire and Flinstone!
Reasonable Doubt: It’s Patrick KANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8:12 PM EST Update:Weed Against Speed: Despite what others may say, this is not as bad as the NBA All-Star weekend.
Reasonable Doubt: Nice shot by Staal.
Reasonable Doubt: And he didn’t punch anyone to do it.
Weed Against Speed: Slick.
Reasonable Doubt: With any luck, Osgood’s confidence will be shattered by this.
Reasonable Doubt: Dauber Dubinski looks good for having been on a football team 15-20 years ago.

8:20 PM EST Update:Weed Against Speed: Holy crap. It’s only a 1/3 done?
Reasonable Doubt: Indeed.
Weed Against Speed: Apparently, there are 5 players from Minnesota playing in this game. I read it in the paper. A little info.
Reasonable Doubt: Awesome
Reasonable Doubt: I think there’s three Lightning players
Weed Against Speed: It was the National Enquirer.
Reasonable Doubt: Weekly World News?
Weed Against Speed: You guys draw pretty well down there in Tampa, right, RD?
Reasonable Doubt: Yeah, almost a full house every night
Hextall: The Flyers have some promising rookie named “Steve Downie.” Why isn’t he there?
Reasonable Doubt: Legace’s so desperate to get out of St. Louis, he wants to be a play-by-play guy now.
Reasonable Doubt: Another Marty Brodeur save?
Weed Against Speed: See, the NHL can work in “unconventional” markets, if you want to call them that, if the team is maketed well. God bless Gary Bettman. Not really. But good for Tampa.
Reasonable Doubt: The NHL can work in unconventional markets if the team wins.
Weed Against Speed: So true, my friend.
Reasonable Doubt: They drew shit until they started making playoff runs
Reasonable Doubt: And that’s the end of the second

8:27 PM EST Update: Hextall: Yeah I remember the Flyers getting ousted by them a decade ago thanks to Alexander Selivanov. I still hate that guy.

Reasonable Doubt: The Minnesota Miracle
Weed Against Speed: I feel better now.
Reasonable Doubt: Wait–first half?
Reasonable Doubt: There’s two more periods of this?
Hextall: What about the kids in the first movie who essentially were told “Hey, you’re not interesting enough for a sequel. Like Jesse Hall’s brother.”
Reasonable Doubt: Or is the YoungStars game over, and all that’s left is the Style Portion?

8:44 PM EST Update:Weed Against Speed: I read that first as Style Python, andI thought, hey, that sounds cool.
Reasonable Doubt: The Swimsuit Competition
Weed Against Speed: *and I
Hextall: I swear that first Lidstrom highlight just there was actually Holmstrom.

Reasonable Doubt: Hossa kind of bit the big one on that
Reasonable Doubt: 3 for 4….
Reasonable Doubt: HAHAHAHAHA

Reasonable Doubt: Borque! Borque! Borque!

Weed Against Speed: Triple lutz it, cock knockers. (spelling questionable)
Hextall: No, you spelled cock kockers right.
Reasonable Doubt: In the computer sim, somebody flipped it over the goalie’s head from the back of the net. That’d be badass
Weed Against Speed: I’ll keep setting ’em up…
Weed Against Speed: Someone should do the “Wes Walz” where you just plow into the net and the puck gets caught in your breezers. Actually happened.
Hextall: shh…Wes Walz may be reading our live blog.

9:23 PM EST Update:Weed Against Speed: Ahh…he’s worn out from grocery shopping…he’s asleep by now.

And that’ll do it for tonight, gang. Join us tomorrow at 6 PM EST for the liveblog of the All-Star Game. Have a good night!


  1. Bets on the Slam Dunk contest? I got Datsyuk.

  2. let’s do this! and by do this, I mean…um…yeah

  3. Hey-yo!

  4. Hey Cinnamon. It’s almost like you’re in the next room!

  5. Almost, but not if you really want me to be ….

  6. The hills are alive…

    /with the sound of music.
    /with the sound of hoc-key.


  7. This is your liveblog on drugs. How DARE you have a wino tell me not to do drugs?

  8. How dare you call me a wino?

    Drinking vodka…

  9. I was referring to RD.

  10. Reasonable Doubt: The Unfrozen Caveman is creepier in HD.

    Does he have a Segway? Inquiring minds need to know!

  11. Hey! I’m not nearly as think as your drunk I am.

  12. No Segway….


  13. “No Segway….yet” He s sick! He is CRAZY! And looking for girls…

  14. Of course, isn’t that the point of these here internets?

  15. Now, I don’t know my Russian, but to my ears “KOVALCHUK” sounds like something edible, like maybe a stew or something. Is that just me?

  16. Come on, I want to see somebody blow a tire in the 4th turn!

  17. Only if you are Rachel Ray and your main ingedient is EVOO (extra-virgin olice oil)

    /still love you

  18. Reasonable Doubt: Malkin sucks! But Sidney swallows. Guess what I was doing last night!

    /totally making shit up just to get a reaction

  19. Legend: why don’t you join the liveblog?

  20. /still love you

    Aww,,,thanks CinnamonGirl, I’ll take all the love I can get

  21. Guess what I was doing last night!

    There’s no way this will end well….every comment I’m about to make will cause me pain.

  22. Is Horcoff that short,Chris Simpson that tall, or a little of both?

  23. exactly.

  24. Weed, I’m at my niece’s birthday party, posting from my phone. I’ll make damn sure I’m home for the ASG liveblog.

  25. “There’s no way this will end well”

    That’s why I added the “/totally making shit up ” at the end there.

    “Hextall: So when does Ice Girl foxy boxing begin?” You don’t want them to do it on the ice–you wouldn’t want those girls to get chest colds, would you?

  26. That could be a BIG problem…

  27. Timonen’s hair is looking fine tonight. He must condition. And no, Thomas, you don’t get style points for breakdancing in the crease.

  28. YoungStars! Do any of these guys even shave yet?

    Enjoying the live bloggery, guys.

  29. CInnamonGirl, what’s your vodka brand? I’ve just discovered Cold River Vodka, a potato vodka made in Maine. It’s fantastic, and none of my money goes to the evil French vodka cartel.

  30. Thanks for using your last initial Jeff K. We have so many Jeffs here – it’s good we can keep them straight.

  31. Wait. Which Jeff K. is this?

  32. Jeffy….Dahmer?

    Go for gold!!

  33. Oh, I’m just a huge fan of your blog. Your Winter Classic live blog was . . . uh . . . classic.

    How is this YoungStars! game different than the shootout? Every shot is a breakaway.

  34. After the game the players can’t drink beer.

  35. Legace is cracking me up. They should have a mic on these guys in every game.

    And now I’m sick of the foghorn.

  36. “They’re using two tons of ice” to make the ice sculptures.

    That’s a great idea, since Atlanta is completely out of water. Good work.

  37. Lecavalier instead of Gonchar? Weak.

  38. Lecavalier 101.9. I’ll shut up now.


  40. Nabakov should be sent home. We didn’t tune in to see poke checks, shithead.

  41. Why does CBC insist on the ice level camera for the shootout?

  42. coming home to catch the late-night replay = dreaming of Vinny’s hard shooting all night

  43. Ahw, balls. I missed out on the fun. I might just blame this on all the snow that dumped down on Spokane today. Messing my day up and what not.

    Dude, plus 2 points for the Might Ducks references.

    Anyone have an idea of where I can get a Charlie Conway jersey?
