Eat that Clouston!

Because I like to draw stick people....

Is Kovy feeling better? I would say so because man, that was team Kovy and Halak out there rocking it this afternoon. Not that the other guys didn't do anything. They were pretty much all working out there. But Kovy looked like... well, Kovy! And Halak after dying of boredom in the first period was solid again.

Okay fine so it was the stinky Sens who looked dazed. And the stinky Sens did get three goals in. And I still like Heatley about as much as I like Briere. But STILL! A win! A win! And a nice win too! Pleky got a pretty goal within the first couple of minutes on the powerplay. Which was followed by Kovy stealing the puck off of some Sen which was followed by Kovy sinking Elliot. He made it look so easy too.

Habbies would take two more goals on two more powerplays thanks to Schneider and Brisebois (eh? Thought it was Hamrlik who got that one?!!!) before the Sens dumped Elliot for Auld and struck back with two of their own goals (actually, I think they dumped Elliot after the third goal but whatever. Minor detail in the grand scheme of the Sens losing). Sens then controlled the rest of the period but my fear of a Sens comeback was banished when Dandenault got a very pretty goal past Auld.

Habs then refused to score any more goals and let the Sens control the game. And then I freaked out and screamed at them the Habs not to embarrass me completely and let the Sens crawl back into the game. Habs then took about half a dozen penalties and killed them almost all off. Heatley did get a goal in the dying seconds of a 5 on 3 PP. Good for you Heatley, getting a goal on while your team had a two man advantage....Not that it saved your team from losing....

It's hard to be too excited considering it's the Sens here....and in all honesty, I think Cory here is getting a tiny taste of what got Hartsburg fired..... but a win is always appreciated against any time but I especially like it when it's the Sens that get sunk. I'm just hoping that the Habs can battle out some wins against some very tough opponents coming up next week (see below for what we can expect out of the Flyers).

Things I liked
  • the effort for the first 30 minutes of the game
  • All five pretty goals.
  • Kovy's goal especially
  • Making Clouston upset. He's so boring to watch though. At least Hartsburg swore and waved his hands around. Clouston just frowns. Boohoo....
  • HAAAAALAAAAAAAAK!
  • Yes, I know he floundered a bit but the defense worked tonight which was great so Jaro doesn't go in the bad books today.
  • KOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
  • Did you see that goal? And was it just me or was there was nice PK and defensive work by him?!!!!
  • Was it just me or did they actually win a decent amount of faceoffs?
What I didn't like
  • the effort for the other 30 mins. If the Sens had been slightly more talented then they could have evened up the score
  • all those stupid penalties. There were way too many of those again.
  • no scoring in an empty net
  • Andrei Kostitsyn not scoring. Meh.
  • Stupid Auld robbing Higgy of a goal when he came out of the penalty box.....
  • Powerplay... wait... that worked today... it worked really well today. I'm so used to putting it here that I just automatically started typing here... Oh well... *g*
  • Apparently we just lost Bouillon for about a month..............
A quick word to the Flyers....
  • I saw that fifth goal by the Pens. What a great way to lose a game..... NOT!
And Penguins....
  • I hate to say this and I'll have to go clean my mouth out with soap or something, but Mike Richards' short handed goal was a thing of complete beauty. There. I just complimented a Flyer. Excuse me while I go off and puke now....You should NEVER have let that one happen. NEVER. Bad Pens! Bad!

I only got to see the third period of this game, since I was stuck at the Flyers game being tortured by Biron. Sadly, it seems like I missed the good periods, because the third was filled with crappy call after crappy call. Two 5 on 3s? Sheesh. And Kovy knew I was watching the third, because he just danced around a lot. Although he did have some nice work on the PK. I used to wonder why they used him on the kill, now I see why.

Here's to a fresh start!

Oh, and by the way, I love your stick people interpretation of the game.
