My heroes

371

Jim Barry and John Scuderi.

You have no idea who those guys are, right?

Well, just to paint the picture, yesterday I made two terrible errors in my initial post. Sloppy, lazy, dumb mistakes.

They happen. We’re all human, even the Blogfather. Especially the Blogfather.

But I wouldn’t even be here doing this, or especially my real job, if it weren’t for Jim Barry and John Scuderi and others. Because in the newspaper, and in columns on the web site, well, it isn’t blog-world. You can’t just go back and fix things, or make mistakes and say, “Ooops.” In the newspaper you have to be right … well, at least most of the time.

And those two guys, mainly, read the stuff I write (which has to be hard enough) and edit it, and catch all the stupid, dumb, lazy mistakes I make. They check spellings. They check facts. They catch it when I forget to put in the score (duh). They catch it when I call somebody by the wrong name (it happens). Or when I plain brain-lock. Because in the paper, there are no excuses. There are corrections the next day, but those are black eyes. And I’d have plenty of those if not for Jim and John, and the other guys on the copy desk.

So, after being embarrassed by dumb mistakes yesterday, I really realized how many times these guys have saved me from being embarrassed over the years. My heroes. I should thank them.

My other hero: CCCP. See the previous thread.

Gotta tell ya, I’m really excited about Chicago-San Jose in the WCF. Which I think is the SCF.

And now this heroic auction to help Haiti, from the NHLPA. I usually don’t go for auctions of memorabilia, but when it’s for a good cause, I’m happy to help. So this:

HOCKEY FANS CAN OWN A PIECE OF OLYMPIC HISTORY BY JOINING THE NHLPA IN SUPPORTING “HOCKEY FOR HAITI” RELIEF EFFORT

  1. I’ll add a couple of things to this, if Carp doesn’t mind.
    NHLPA absorbs all administrative costs, so truly 100% goes to Haiti. The jersey I got from their first auction for Haiti back in February (JJ) was a personal item, with authentic signature. You also get a certificate of authenticity and thank you letter from Georges Laraque, which says :” Georges Laraque, Montreal Canadiens”. Whaaaa? Anyway, the whole transaction is very professionaly conducted and NHLPA is easy to communicate. If anyone can, please bid. This is a great way to help the poor country and their people using our true love- hockey.
    There is no way to say at the moment whether Callahan’s or Drury’s jersey will be auctioned.

  2. leetchhalloffame on

    Brodeur’s jersey is actually a good deal. It’s 2 jerseys sewn into one. Kind of like a buy one, get one free.

  3. Carp

    You make me blush!

    Thank you Jim Barry and John Scuderi for helping Carp to be a better writer! :P

  4. Editors are awesome. So yaay for Jim and John helping Carp out!

    Extra yaays for CCCP and his good deed. :)

    Chicago-San Jose is gonna be REALLY GOOD.

  5. Tip of the hat to Jim and John. But Carp, no worries. You’re amongst friends.

    Nice job CCCP. Reminds me of when a young knucklehead (me) lost his wallet almost 30 yrs ago, containing a priceless family gold cross, only to have it returned intact by a stranger I never met. Still remember the good deed to this day.

    Now CCCP, if you happen to find Sather’s wallet, let us know. We may have a couple of different suggestions.

  6. Will USA wipe the egg off of all our faces today?

    I have the universal sports channel and rarely watch the biking or whatever is on it but they have shown that last USA hockey game about four times.

    I saw that OT winner Denmark scored and oh boy did Gilroy totally misplay that one. He backed in and let the guy get a good shot off and then let him blow right by him and get his rebound. Not a good sign for Rangers fans after a year of NHL experience.

  7. One of the following:
    1) rescued a kitten from a tree
    2) help an old lady carry her groceries
    3) returned a lost wallet
    4) saw Sather crossing street & mowed him down with his truck
    5) purchased an Olympic jersey for charity

    All good deeds to be sure.

  8. He stole a wallet with $530 and two Yankees tickets from his upstairs neghbor who was annoying him. Subsequently he felt ashamed and returned the whole thing. Intact. :-)

  9. Thanks, Tony. I had a heart…it was stolen by the Rangers!

    Greg… you know there’s a special place in my heart for you.

  10. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    1)Cats eventualy come down when they get hungry enough

    2)Old lady get thier groceries delivered now a days.

    3)Nobody returns a lost wallet.

    4)Sather is never in public.

    5)No one wants russia’s jersey after they failed to get a medal.

    which one did he do …

  11. Long time ago, somebody stole my work bag from the pressbox in the old Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. Don’t know what they were looking for, or if they figured they wouldn’t be able to get it out of the building, but apparently they left it behind …

    I had everything in there, my laptop, all my stat books, my phone book, my whole work life.

    A few days went by and I got a call, and a kindly guy from Vancouver had my bag, and shipped it back to me, intact. That’s why I try to do the right thing, too.

  12. CCCP

    You screwed up! It was a late B-day gift from your annoying neighbor!

    I feel like this is the episode of the Brady Bunch when they found the lost wallet, at least they got a reward.

  13. Speaking of Vancouver. Did you see what Green Man did when the fist Hawks’ player was in the box? He used red Hawks’ jersey. Classless. He knew there was a good chance he would be on TV. I’m glad they lost.

  14. Ok Greg, you got me. Knowing how an elite goalie is imperative to winning the cup, what he really did was purchase the jerseys of Broduer, Luongo and Miller, hoping one of them would go up in value after the ultimate prize was won.

    Oh wait……….nevermind.

  15. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    Onetime;

    I was waiting in the car and my ex had gone into the bank to do some banking. She just left the bank and when she came back to the car she was missing a $100 bill!!I was freaking out and I went back to the bank with her to go look for it right away!!

    After we were exhausted from looking for it , we asked a lady at the bank counter if a bill was turned in? She said “yes” that an older lady found it on the floor and returned it!!! WHEW!! We got it back and I was relieved!!! I always return stuff that I find .

  16. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    only 29 days until the world cup……suhweet!!!

    carp
    you are one heck of a guy and a hero to us all!!!

    CCCP
    well, whatever the hell you did congrats!!!!

    Oh, and lets’ go habs!!!!

  17. bull dog line on

    another ELITE goalie (Luongo) bites the dust! are there any left in the playoffs? Fluery?

  18. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    bull dog
    elite goaltending gets you into the playoffs, which ever team has the most physical d and best 3rd and 4th liners win the cup!!!!

  19. bull dog line on

    wickey,
    well the Ranger have a lot of 3rd and 4th liners, and an ELITE goalie! the cup should be ours. but the D is soft, never mind.

  20. 6) saw Zherdev crossing the street & gave him a ride to the Garden. Unfortunately, no one would answer the door.

  21. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    bull dog
    i agree, except that our 3rd and 4th liners really didn;t get better until prust and shelley were added….our d is soft?????

  22. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    GC, thats typical, noone is EVER home at the Garden!

    Morning Carpy, Sally, gentlemen, boneheads and all..

    SEVEN DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    oops, afterNOON to you guys!

    Props to Jim and John! Carpy, the next time i send cookies, make sure they get some!

  24. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    i once new a guy from the ukraine that was strong like bull!!!!

  25. Is he still alive, wicky? Bulls usually don’t last long. Especially in Ukraine.

  26. wicky

    either i’m really really tired or
    your line

    “i once new a guy from the ukraine that was strong like bull!!!!”

    makes me think that it could continue in something similar to “there once was a man from nantucket….”

  27. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    CCCP: strong like bull, most interesting man in the world, international man of mystery, lost wallet returner, and Rangers fan.

  28. wicky, you “new” a guy? How is that even possible?

    just yanking your chain ;)

  29. GC, Great. Now we’re paying them to NOT show up in the off-season, too. Brilliant strategy by Darth.

  30. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    mickey
    yes, i noticed that…ahhh well, just an indication of how horrible of a typer I really am!!

    linda
    hilarious!

    ilb
    don’t see him much anymore, but I hope he is still around!!! He kinda grew on you like a fungus!

    JPG
    thought the same thing as i was typing!!

  31. Hi Ogie. Buy you a soda after the game? on

    Linda, Sather IS Darth, Dolan isn’t sidious just insane.

  32. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    as of right now… chance of showers my first 3 days in NY…blech!!!!!!! as long as its nice and in the 60’s on the 21st i’ll be happy.. i hate bad hair days

    Wicky, which part? the CCCP love or the islanders stuff?

  33. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    linda
    CCCP thing

    loved this calamari quote:
    DarrenDreger
    Cammalleri is a quote factory. Says he almost feels bad for the guys who play their entire careers without ever being a Canadien. Pure gold!

  34. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Chopper, running AFTER Lady Byng is more like it!

    GC, COMEDY GOLD!! Looks just like him except for the fact that Watto has a discernible neck area

  35. Linda, what is WTB ? I miss a few days working and I am lost…I saw a few other abbreviations yesterday and had no idea what anyone was talking about.

  36. LMAO @ Watto. Does he play hockey? ‘Cause his mouth looks like Heatley’s.

  37. ilb
    played a few games with the Red Wings. Sadly they had to cut him when he tried to “date” the octopus. I believe he ultimately went to the KHL.

  38. FiveFootZero on

    Hey Linda, your time in NY around the 21st will be iffy weather wise. My son’s birthday is on the 21st (my little mite will be 8…communion week this weekend, then 10 hockey boys for a sleepover next weekend)…and I can never tell what the weather will be like. Sometimes it’s been 80s + with sunshine, other times it is in the 60s and rain. I can never tell…so I always prepare for all types of weather. Hope you have a GREAT time!

  39. FiveFootZero on

    I meant communion WILL BE this weekend. Type too fast for my own good sometimes.

  40. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Five, I hope the weather is nice the whole weekend for EVERYONE’S activities!!!

    Chopper… WTB = WHAT THE BYFUGLIEN. Carp actually invented it. Sugarbeans was created by CoachSister, from Carps awesome article the other day.

  41. Per Gross:
    Also, best wishes to John Tortorella, resting at home in Florida after hip replacement surgery.
    The rumor is that Torts may join the cast of Sunset Daze on WE.

  42. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    dont forget people Ties For Torts!!

    after the hip replacement surgery, Brooksie BETTER watch out, Torts will be much faster and more agile!

  43. ONECUPIN70YEARS AND COUNTING on

    Most people like sports because its a diversion of whats going on in the world and even at home.

    I guess its admirable that leagues and celebrities have their favorite causes.. What the connection is between hockey and Haiti baffles me and frankly I don”t care, just as hollywood entertainers jump on the soapbox and have the nerve to preach, the causes are endless, from defending cop killers to whatever.

    Sports is sports, if i want to donate my time or money i don’t need a star or league to guide me.

  44. Blue Seat Horror on

    1) If Slats = Darth Sather; Dolan = Dark Helmet

    2) My vote for next year’s Masterton goes to Sami Salo!

  45. I like the last one:

    Administrative Assistant Part-Time

    Job duties include …., meeting and greeting visitors…

    I think my 7 year old Maltese will qualify. He could be pretty vicious.

  46. WAY OFF TOPIC BUT STILL SPORTS RELATED:

    Any college football fans

    A friend of mine emailed me saying that he got to do an assignement explaining who and how the BCS rankings are produced which i know nothing about at all so I was wondering if you guys know any resources primarily for who determines these rankings and whether there is a perceived bias in them.

    thanks

  47. Blue Seat Horror on

    3-1 Swiss over Canada. Goal by (former?) Ranger prospect Ambuhl, who is having a good WHC.

  48. Is that internship paid? Those are the best ones. Course the hours at a sports internship are awful.

  49. CCCP, just tell him to write that the BCS is too complicated for any human to understand and it should be totally overhauled. And to suggest Gary Bettman as the perfect man to do that job.

    SRSLY, though, if your friend wants to details, try the ncaa website or any other the big conference websites. They should be a place to start.

  50. billybleedsblue on

    “Doing the right thing” is never easy, especially in this increasingly selfish world that we live in. While I can’t say that I know many people that would have done the right thing with that wallet, it’s nice to hear that I know somebody that did. Good for you CCCP!

    Also, Carp, does Sister T. know anything about hockey? We could use all the help we can get behind the bench!

    I’ll put my comments on Vs. aside for now and just say, for the love of all that is good, please no bad calls/missed calls in the Habs/Pens game 7. Unless, of course, it benefits the Habs. LOL WTB?!?

  51. Reading between the lines of that Administrative Assistant role with the Fishsticks:

    *”…meeting and greeting visitors.”*
    Sometimes up to 8,000 in one night!

    *”Must be proficient with…Excel…”*
    So you can work out exactly which decade you can stop paying Alexei Yashin.

    *”The ideal candidate will have three or more years experience…”*
    i.e. Three or more years of experience more than Garth Snow did.

    *”…excellent verbal and written communication skills…”*
    i.e. Not Mike Milbury

    *”Candidate will work with team members…”*
    Every chance you will end up playing wing next to Tavares.

    *”…between 25-30 hours a week.”*
    Or the same as DiPietro works in a year.

    *”No relocation assistance available…”*
    You’d better live close to Kansas City already.

    *”Please send cover letter with salary requirements…”*
    …which Mr Wang will multiply by 20 over a period four times as long.

  52. Blue Seat Horror on

    Can you tell I’m bored at work?

    Anyway, tonight’s Pens-Canadiens game will come down to 2 factors.

    1) Halak – He has proven this post season that he can transcend what’s happening on the ice and set the game to his pace.

    2) Who’s officiating and how they effect the flow of the game with the penalty card. Sadly, this is a reality in today’s NHL. #2 can be overcome by #1 or by overall team effort, which is what sets a playoff hockey team apart from a golf team.

    Sure, there are factors from the Penguins, (un)namely he who should not be named #1 and he who should not be named #2, but you can watch Versus if you want to hear about them.

  53. Thanks MickeyM… ill tell my friend to go bettman himself! lol

    Watching WC game on Universal Sports in SD is like watching someone play original Play Station NHL ’99! Horrible picture quality!

  54. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    best goal of playoffs…lapierre in game 6 vs pens!!

    off to work!!!!
    Let’s go Habs!!!

  55. Blue Seat Horror on

    Gilroy must feel like he’s playing for the Rangers. 0:00 minutes in period 2.

  56. billybleedsblue on

    LW3H — “*“No relocation assistance available…”*
    You’d better live close to Kansas City already.”

    My drink almost came out of my nose there! Good stuff. Ahhh, the seemingly endless entertainment of this blog…

  57. Blue Seat Horror on

    It’s interesting to see Anisimov getting as much ice time as Ovechkin and Kovalchuk. Imagine that. Rolling 4 lines for the entire game…

  58. Control Gonchar, keep doing what u r to Sid and 71. Counter attack, hit, stay out of the box and have your goalie stand on his head. No problem Go Habs!

  59. >>…What the connection is between hockey and Haiti baffles me and frankly I don”t care…

    I’m not quite sure what kind of “connection” you’re looking for, but here’s one: hockey is played and and enjoyed by men and women, some of whom are from Haiti. A little education can go a long way.

  60. tomb, relegation? What does that mean for the team? I read it on the USA hockey site, but I’m not sure what exactly it is.

  61. Blue Seat Horror on

    Relegation means playing to be the best of the losing class. No invite to the big person’s table.

  62. Blue Seat Horror on

    Outshot 43-22! Are you byfuglien kidding me???! I’m not sure about this Gordon guy. Has he actually succeeded coaching at any level of hockey?

  63. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Blue, could he possibly have had ANY connection to Drury’s LLWS win???

  64. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    well blue, Gordon WAS an assistant for the 2010 US Hockey Team, of which Drury was a member lol ;-)

  65. People are strange when you’re a stranger
    Faces look ugly when you’re alone
    Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
    Streets are uneven when you’re down

    …i have this song playing in my head all day long

  66. Blue Seat Horror on

    CCCP, there was a comedian about a decade ago who had his own lyrics to that song:

    People are strange when you’ve been drinking
    Showing your (expletive = member)
    People are strange

  67. I’ve got this one stuck in my head:

    Well, I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flying
    In the yellow haze of the sun
    There were children crying and colors flying
    All around the chosen ones
    All in a dream, all in a dream

  68. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Here’s whats stuck in my head right now, thanks to a friend with 3 yr old…

    I know an old lady who swallowed a fly,
    I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
    I guess she’ll die.

  69. LMAO Linda, after rewatching The Wire I had “The Cheese Stands Alone” stuck in my head for weeks…

  70. I’ve had Marianne Faithfull’s “Broken English” playing in my head all day.

    Then, I got home and it was replaced with Asia’s “Sole Survivor” after hearing about the lone boy survivor on the Libyan plane crash.

  71. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    LMAO sally!

    this should make you smile…

    Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
    Swim so wild and you swim so free.
    Heaven above and the sea below,
    And a little white whale on the go.

    Baby beluga, baby beluga,
    Is the water warm? Is your mama home,
    With you so happy?

  72. Blue Seat Horror on

    I have a friend with a 3 yr old nephew, and my son is 3. When we want to irritate each other we get songs from Dora the Explora stuck in each others’ heads (can’t be helped..all you parents know what I’m talking about). Anyway we were infiltrating “The Rock” during that last Ranger’s glorious shootout win there and he sucker punched me with the “I’m the Map” song on that way in and we were both singing it up the escalator at The Rock. Not my best moment.

  73. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    lmao sally!!!

    sorry blue, my daughter is 23, i know Raffi, not dora lol

  74. Blue Seat Horror on

    Woohoo! 1-0 The lesser of 2 evils.

    Linda, no need to apologize, you lucked out and didn’t have to suffer through PC children’s programming. Thankfully the lad’s transitioning to Pink Panther and Tom & Jerry now.

  75. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    you know it Blue!! Do you buy the old school cartoon dvds that sometimes people find ‘naughty porn’ on lol??

  76. Blue Seat Horror on

    You know Linda, no matter how many of those old school videos I buy I still have found no porn. I’m beginning to think it’s an urban legend.

  77. Some of you Boneheads will be sorry for cheering on Canadiens. They will make it to the Stanley Cup Finals if they get past Pittsburgh. Mark my word! I don’t why anyone would want them to get a chance at winning yet another trophy.

    Note to Mike Emrick: “soccer” is not a verb.

  78. Blue Seat Horror on

    I will say this for Emerick, and it’s probably the only good thing I’ll ever say about him:

    At least he doesn’t say “Halak says NO!” when the goalie makes a save.

  79. LOL, team genetic misfortune.

    Tom and Jerry, the most violent cartoon ever. Or was that Roadrunner? Thank goodness we weren’t victims of the cartoon police.

  80. >>At least he doesn’t say “Halak says NO!” when the goalie makes a save.

    I’ve heard him use that phrase before. I’m sure of it.

  81. …not cheering for the Habs – cheering against the Pens

    Tony, you can postpone cheering against Penguins until next round, when they play Boston. Montreal’s defensive chokehold looks too scary right now; I want them OUT ASAP.

  82. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    omg i loooooooooooooved Heckle and Jeckle, Tom and Jerry too! You said it Carp, Cartoon police just added to the wussification of America lol

  83. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    YEA!!! and everyone should stop eating and drinking the stuff with all the hormones, it’s making boys wimpy and giving men boobs!!!

  84. Blue Seat Horror on

    JB Bytes, thanks for confirming that Emerick uses one of my most hate hockey announcer phrases. Now I don’t have to say anything nice about him. That was quite a moral dilemma for me.

    I wonder if when it’s a nice warm sunny Sunday Emerick says to his wife, “Marty (because that’s his nickname for his wife), it’s a beautiful day, let’s go for a DRIVE!!!!!

  85. Blue Seat Horror on

    We’re not rooting for the Canadiens, we’re rooting for Dominic…forget aboot it!

    Linda, I thought fatty foods and McDonalds were giving men boobs.

    •No, I will not be mad if Habs win Cup, but they better beat Pitt.
    • You’re ear worm songs are all killing me. Take this! “The wheels in the bus go round and round, round and round…” I used to have neighbors who played that, LOUD. Thank heavens they moved.
    • I do know Jim Barry and John Scuderi. And they are awesome.
    • Old school cartoons were the best cartoons. Hartnell my little pony (and I do like horses)
    • Carp, I read down by the river, and all I hear is Bruuuuce!

    This is in NY ya’ll, and he’s on piano at start! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HxZKa4NwGo

    OK, sorry, resume your chat. Go HABS!!

  88. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Blue, they are because the meat they use is loaded with hormones, hence, MANBOOBS and wimpy sons!

  89. Ack! I need Barry and Scuderi, cause I Hartnell’d up!
    It’s not my husband on piano, but harmonica. And I revealed my sybil self. hate that. long day though. blech.

  90. Good evening to you, Carp!

    Tony, I’m with you on not cheering for the Habs, but against the Pens.

    Go Dominic!

    Glen, you like to think that you’re doing your stuff, oh Yeah
    it’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get it done,
    you know you’re gonna have to face it, Slats, you dicked up the Club

  92. why do hockey players talk funny like that?

    “we have to go ‘anumm’ do what we have to do ‘appp’…these little “mmmm” and “pppp” in between.. whats up with that? lol

  93. Izzy’s up at the crack of 7:44! btw my friend, you have been lax at sister blog!

    go habs. and hartnell crosby! see ya’ll tomorrow…TA!

  94. Hold on, everybody. There’s apparently a Crosby interview coming up on CBC before the 2nd period starts. Earth-shattering news…

  95. Blue Seat Horror on

    Early exit for Carcillosburg? Awesome. I expect them to start playing like spoiled little brats now.

  96. It’s funny how the canadien fans and media killed Bob Gainey and he eventually resigned but looking back on his off season moves, it’s looking good.

  97. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    For all you pre-cartoon police era types…I can’t hear the name Jordan Leopold without thinking to myself: “Lu-lu-lu-leopold!”

  99. Olga Folkyerself on

    Slats!!! Get Gonchar. He’s an old washed up defenseman. Collect the whole set!

  100. Olga Folkyerself on

    Pit gets one back. Remember, it ain’t over until Kirstie Alley sings…

    lmao @ until Kirstie Alley sings!!! You are en fuego Olga!! a hearty *FIRE SATHER* to you my friend!

    If the Habs win this series, what are the chances that Cindy shakes their hands?? And without blowing his nose into it first.

  104. The NHL should really look into outlawing hand passes altogether. Why should the defensive team get an unfair advantage? Both teams should abide by the same rules, in all parts of the ice.

  105. Blue Seat Horror on

    Anybody know what the Vegas odds are on Pittsburg being the only team to get power plays for the rest of the game?

  106. ZzZz NYR ZzZz " Rangers will be back!!! " … says Greg L. on

    wohoooooo passion , I LOVE IT!!!!

    GO RANGERS!!!

  107. Blue Seat Horror on

    O’Halloran and Peel. I’m actually surprised there haven’t been more penalties given the officials.

  108. Whoa! The first period is over already in Philly. Why is Versus still showing it?

  109. Collect the whole set!

    Like one of those commercials brainwashing some dumb little kid who will in turn hound his parents incessantly to buy some Chinese made, overpriced, piece of garbage action fugure.

  110. >>Hope the Habs don’t blow this

    Two goal lead going into the third period? This one is OVER!

  111. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    dde, i was thinking of those flinstone jelly jars you could use as drinking glasses!

  112. Blue Seat Horror on

    An now for a Versus fact: No team has ever won a game 7 after being outscored in regulation.

  113. Blue Seat Horror on

    Ha! Sorry. Took me a while to get that: pen()s. 9 doctors out of 10 can prescribe something for that.

  114. BSH – You might be confusing that with the fact that no team in NHL history has lost after scoring the first goal in overtime.

  115. Blue Seat Horror on

    I must have missed something. I don’t remember the Penguins having a 4-on-3 at the end of the second period, or is it an NHL rule that they just start each period with a power play?

  116. I think Malkin gave Crosby a Dirty Sanchez

    Linda -Don’t remember those glasses

  117. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    dde, back in the 70’s, either smuckers or welch’s used to put the jelly in glass jars that had flintstone characters on em…me and the bro collected the whole set lol

    I sure hope kennedy never spawns!

  118. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    lmao ugliest guy on the ice gets to serve the penalty… what do they do, draw straws?

  119. TheMessiah94 on

    Finally the Habs catch a break. If that glass was broken while the Pens were on the power play, they would have kept playing.

    Either that or just had the teams switch ends! lol

  120. LMAO at the sharpie. Doesn’t he know not to use anything sharp near the pen()s.?

  121. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    if the habs win, canadien fozzy bear will say halakalakalaka instead of woka woka woka

  122. Olga Folkyerself on

    Did that too many men on the ice for pens include the referees?

    5-2 Habs

  123. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Kennedy’s and Malkin’s faces are biological weapons. What do nato and the un have to say about that??

  124. Blue Seat Horror on

    And the bandwagon just got a flat tire. 5:44 left and the Penguins faithless are filing out so they can demo the Igloo.

  125. Carp I’m finally playing my first round with mr titleist this saturday.Eisenhower in Long Island (white course)Have you been out there?

  126. Blue Seat Horror on

    Sorry dd, there is no transfer agreement with Russia, that includes bodily fluids.

  127. To be fair to the Penguins, they have had to survive *three* straight drafts without having a pick in the top two. How can they be expected to keep winning games in the face of that?

  128. CTBlueshirt on

    And the Pens have traded a decent amount of picks and some guys from the upper level of their prospect pool for the annual “find Crosby a winger” contest.

  129. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Conference Finals and SC Finals that I will watch this year!!!

  130. These teams are very similar.
    The Canadians have Hamrlík and Crosby likes to lick tools too.

  131. The White Plains Batman on

    Great job MTL!!!! Now if Boston would be so kind as to take out Philly the gallery of major rogues (like Batman has!) will be officially golfing.

  132. CTBlueshirt on

    Shave Crosby, please for the love of god. I think I hear my tv coming off its mount.

  133. The White Plains Batman on

    Yeah def let’s go Boston. It’s funny, I can’t even hate the Canadians, they don’t have their usual arrogance, all hard working guys like Moen, Poulliot, Gionta, Gill, and Halak isn’t a derriere like Patrick Roy.

    Still let’s go Sharks!!!!!!

  134. been working since 9 a.m. and still at it
    but the
    PENS LOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    life is so bad after all!!!!!!!!

    i guess the cr9 suicide watch is on, especially if Boston comes back tonight and/or wins game 7.

    btw,
    did cindy give the Habs a snot-filled handshake like he did the Americans during the olympics?

  135. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    nor, somewhere in north america, higgins is shooting wide, drinking some thunderbird, and havin some scooby snacks after enjoyin a funny cigarette or two lol

  136. Lin, maybe not North America, he may be camped out outside of the KHL offices with a sign around his neck- will sign for free booze.

  137. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    how many crysby inspired “history will be made” parodies will there be tomorrow??

  138. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    Mess, the kinda look like us! what the hell happened to them the last 3 games????

  139. TheMessiah94 on

    You’re right, they do kinda resemble a certain team from NY. The Flyers have had Leighton & Boucher in goal. LEIGHTON and BOUCHER!!!!! The B’s are making these guys look like Roy.

  140. I’m not somebody who advocates the Rangers making dumb short-term moves to scrape into the playoffs because “anything can happen when you get in”, but the three teams left in the East really are horribly average.

  141. The White Plains Batman on

    Cammalleri’s dad is Italian and his mom is an Ashkenazi Jew (Eastern European aka most of the Jewish people who live in the U.S) but he was raised a Jew or a CaJew as many people I have grown up with call themselves. It’s usually done by what the mother is but of course, is not always the case.

    And as for Boston-Philly, I can definitely see Philly winning this; that Krejci injury is a MAJOR blow.

  142. its amazing – if i had to pick, right now i would put philly in the ecf against the habs and say they have a 50/50 shot at it. And yet the Rangers were effing Olli Jokinen away from bouncing them from the tournament altogether 4 weeks ago.

  143. TheMessiah94 on

    Yeah, something like that. But it’s not the goalies saving them. The B’s just aren’t generating any good chances – except for that goalpost.

  144. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    dudes, i thought you guys were kidding, thanks for that Batman, and for anyone who was offended by my laughing, i’m sorry. I truly didnt know.

    Peter, there were so many other games they could have gotten another point or two in, it never should’ve gotten to that stage. It’s so confusing because they were really good at the start and finish of the season, it’s the november to march that killed them

  145. I didn’t have the Versus coverage tonight – did they again claim that Montreal were the second team to win two series from 3-1 down? I’ve just seen somebody else repeat it like it was fact.

  146. The White Plains Batman on

    Haha, Linda, no worries, we’re all un-PC here, and we’re here to teach each other new things too….I think.

    I’ll be hanging out with people who are offended by sneezing or the simple mention of Metallica/N.W.A. in about 9 hours; it’s called work.

    Also, what’s with the Jersey Auction? No Mats Zuccarello-Aason?

  147. TheMessiah94 on

    A GOAL!!!!!

    Even if they lose, maybe this will be the proverbial monkey off their back.

  148. The White Plains Batman on

    Yeah, Boston has become last year’s playoff Rangers; relying on the wrong people to score all the time (Recchi).

    Seriously, Krejci going down and Savard not being in real game shape looks like it will be the downfall of the Bruins. Philly is actually a good team when healthy (deep D, great top 6) despite the ECHL goalies.

  149. Olga Folkyerself on

    Boston scores with 1 minute left.

    Come on Boston…. waste 59 minutes, but make the last one count.

  150. Linda WTB 4 LIFE on

    thanks Batman, i’m extremely un-PC, but i don’t want to be the person to hurt a friend’s feelings by trying to be funny.

    WOW LUCIC

  151. Olga Folkyerself on

    On to game 7. Now I’m a-scared. Especially after seeing Boston play…

  152. Wait, was that Mike Richter congratulating Ed Snider at the end of the game?

    NYR, I played there once. Frank Brown (then of the Daily News, now of the NHL) was attacked by a goose.

  153. Blue Seat Horror on

    Batman, I am offended by the mention of Metallica, but it’s because of what they’ve become, not what they are.

    Good to see I didn’t miss an exciting Boston comeback on my commute back to work. I heard the announcers mention that Betts was not playing in the 3rd. Did he get injured?

  154. peter if jokinen scored the shootout would have been tied not a guaranteed ranger win

  155. wicky (Positionally sound=soft in NHL speak!!) on

    good night erin………….wooo hoooo habs!!!!!!
