LOOK AT WHAT A JOKE OSGOOD IS
We fucking love Columbus. You know that. So we're taking a moment to celebrate their 3-2 win in overtime against Detroit.
Rick Nash hattie. Beautiful.
We love the underdogs. This was our favorite CBJ game all season, save that OT win against the Sharks we got to watch. We really want to see them and their fans (who we also love) get to see the playoffs this year. Oh, and Stevey Mason was -as always- a man. He looks like he might be stuck playing WOW in his parents basement if he hadn't found hockey. Luckily he did. We love him.
In other hockey news, The Leafs got obliterated by Team Cal, 1-6.
This would hurt us more if Vesa were in the net, but as is it still doesn't please us. We actually have some sort of weird, abusive relationship with the Leafs.
Cal was on fire.
A goal, 4 shots and 5 hits.
He also tried to fight Luke Schenn. This raised more questions than answers.
Who did we want to win?
Do we ever want Cal to lose?
Why are we even Leafs fans?
Can we really even watch this game?
OMG IS THAT VESA IN A WHITE BEANIE ON THE BENCH OMG[wraparoundcurl for the win.]
OH WAIT WE'RE A PENGUINS BLOG, SORRY WE FORGOT
By this point in the day you've all seen this Petr Sykora interview.
We hate to say this...REALLY hate to say this...but if Petr is off the Therrien train, so are we. We leave some wiggle room for translation errors but this all just didn't sound too good.
We know everything is cool when you are winning and no one bitches about a coach's system and OMG JUST BECAUSE WE ARE LOSING YOU CAN'T BLAME THE COACH. We know. We've been on Therrien's side for a very long time. We still aren't completely off of his side. We're just saying that from the comments of some players (particularly Sykora and Taffe) we think it's time Therrien stop his immediate reward/punishment system and give the players some stability and time to work shit out.
On a lighter note, we think it's fucking adorable that Sykie calls Malkin Zhenya.
You know Mattie Cooke is out. You know it's bullshit.
But we can still smile about the fact that we can watch our real team tomorrow.
Not our favorite specific conference team.
Not our favorite underdog team.
Not our favorite team with a player with a ridiculous name.
No more of this bullshit.
Our favorite team.
