I hate to brag, but I’ve been watching hockey since the ‘94-‘95 season and I think this is a first. Thanks to my mad photoshopping skills, I will provide for you not a mere link, but the info right here:
P.S. My back-up team (who to cheer for when the blues aren’t playing), is Vancouver and take a looksy where they are as well. MMmm.
Vancouver vs. Oilers – Glad to see Hall is doing well (btw, Spitfires are near the top of their Division, second only to the Saginaw Spirits) but can his team defeat the Sedin brothers? Not a lot of action in the first several minutes, but then 3-0 Vancouver! Torres has two goals already. Things calmed down and Penner makes it 3-1. Third period, Oilers score twice in a short time to tie it up! Torres gets the Hat Trick to make it 4-3. Even though the Canucks were not at home, people still showered the ice with caps – that’s cool. All the ads on the Vancouver radio station use bad hockey analogies. Can you blame them? It’s so tempting.
Blues vs. Sharks – good game good game. Ostrich (Oystrick) and The Cracken (Strachan) are the newest of my given nicknames. How is it that I’ve blogged this much and not a single nickname thrown out there? Thorton out with a 5:00 major and 10:00 misconduct for a hit to Perron center ice as the former came out of the box. Party in the shark box! I got robbed. Goal called off AND a goalie interference call after the blues guy was CLEARLY pushed in by two sharks. Whatever. Perron made a sweet backhand to make it 2-0. My PP needs help, thank god halak can stop those shorthanded chances. 3rd shutout for him. Tied with Thomas. The blues are #1 in the West!!!!!!!! So it was only a couple hours until the Kings beat the Lightning - it was nice while it lasted.
Blues vs. Bruins – beating them in a SO is saying something because Thomas is right up there with Halak and Quick for top goalie at the moment. 6th straight win WHAT. I’m making history left and right.
Blues vs. Rangers – another win - that makes 7 in a row (see above image for details)!! 4 shutouts in the past 6 games. Best start to the season in franchise history. And conklin played in this double header.
Phoeniz vs. Detroit - coyotes lost in OT :( But Hansel and Gretel scored (Handzal and Yandal).
You know what video was online today - Why the blues can win the cup!! it’s weird to hear so many positive things about my team. But there’s a lot of time before the playoffs and cup run. Guess my goalie is the Ha-lochness monster. My nicknames are so better.
