Zap! Zap! Zappity!

Thursday, March 26, 2009

That sound you hear is either Evgeny Artyukhin after he smashed into the boards on his own or Rick Tocchet after he blew up at his team. Anyway....Tonight the Bolts went ZAP and fell down dead. Habs took it 3-2 in OT which they really should have won 10-0 in regulation. But I digress because the end result was what I wanted.
  • Battle of the Careys/Karris in 31 tonight. I didn't realize that Karri Ramo was also in 31....
  • Habs dominated the Bolts throughout 50 minutes of play. They actually OUTSHOT their opponent tonight. I repeat: HABS OUTSHOT THEIR OPPONENTS TONIGHT! At the end of the first it was 11-2 or something similar.... for the Habs..... And it was only 1-0.... Yuh.....
  • Which brings us to... RAMO (am I the only one who thinks "Rambo" when I see his name?) He was the only Bolt playing tonight. He saved the Bolts' butts tonight. Was not too pleased with that because my wonderful Habs couldn't score!
  • Posts were 3-1 for the Habs tonight. Grrr....
  • Shorty Marty and Skinny Vinny looked pretty invisible for a lot of the night and when they were visible they just couldn't connect on anything.....
  • Shorty Marty was only semi-noticeable because he was this little short guy zipping tripping around on the ice....I never realized just how short he is... he makes Briere look like a giant... then again... I'm shorter than both of them so I guess I can't talk.....
  • But really... Marty looked hilarious out there. And I think his face was made to attract pucks or something. He leans down for some stupid reason and gets blasted in the face with the puck. I don't think anyone taught him that you score with the stick normally, not your face....
  • Kovy had a beautiful goal on the first or second or third of.... eight or so Habs powerplays.... The Habs then forgot how to score on the PP.... Uhuh.... that's why you got burned!
  • speaking of burned.... I was burning up with what I'm sure is a mild fever even if the stupid thermometer says no while the game dragged on and on and on and on and on and on and on........ Bolts didn't know what offside was and they just loved our penalty boxes so much that they kept putting themselves in it. Really. I knew our building was awesome but I dind't know that we had penalty boxes to die for.....
  • Just when I thought that the Habs would never score again (this was after we went into the third period without a single goal in the second), Latendresse scored on a beautiful wraparound. Good thing he didn't hear me screaming at him to shoot the puck.
  • And then the Habs got burned when they let in two goals. First was after they basically obstructed their own goalie and the second was when the puck deflected off of Schneider. Wonderful.
  • Koivu saved us in OT though when the Bolts obstructed their own goalie. Like we cared that they were obstructing Ramo.... In the words of Number31 "Hey if the Bolts can score with the Habs screwing Price, then the Habs can score while the Bolts screw over Ramo". Not how I'd put it but that's the truth!
  • So at the end of the day, we got the result we needed and Tampa can't make the playoffs anyway so they can keep their point.
The good
  • Wiiiiiiiin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Outshooting the opposition
  • Gui's goal. Beautiful
  • Koivu's winner in OT
  • Markov was really good too =)
the bad
  • Those two Bolts goals
  • I'm sick.....
The not so nice
  • Hmm going 1 for 8 on the PP or whatever it was...
  • going to OT
  • the fact that the Habs only got two goals past Ramo
What we could be happy about....
  • Artyukhin tried to take out Komisaurus who then moved out of his way and Arty smashed into the wall. SPLAT! Apparently he's all banged up now. Before you call me sadistic, you may want to remember that Artyukhin was the one who took out Tanguay when he smashed him into the boards.......Yeah, I ain't feeling so bad for the guy.....
  • Also that the Bolts were truly horrendous tonight. They were like zombies on skates....
What I almost wish could have happened...
  • Prospal scored and went insane with happiness. Yeah, I'm still dwelling on that little meltdown of joy when we played them in January.... It was so funny.... and so stupid at the same time.
The hilarious
  • Just saw replays of the Pens/Flames game from the other night.... Like how stupid do you have to be to repeatedly miss the open net? That was hilarious.... I know... That had nothing to do with the game tonight but it was hilarious..... really....
Anyway.... Enemy watch:
  • Hartnell's hair couldn't win it for the Flyers and despite what sounded like them outshooting the crap out of the Panthers, they lost 4-2. Normally I'd bash you all to the next continent but I said I wouldn't. But I'm letting you know that if I hadn't said I wouldn't then I would. Biron you su..... those rebounds sucked. I hate y.... the fact that you all lost. Thanks for nothing. And Carter, stop scoring please so Ovie can stay ahead of you by a long mile. I said PLEASE!
  • The Thrashers recovered nicely from being thrashed by the Habs and after getting thrashed by the Rangers, they came back and thrashed them in shootouts. Interesting moment came when Avery collided with Kovalchuk who then threw him on the ice. Despite all their claims of loving Avery, not one Rag came to his defense. I guess nobody told them that Ilya isn't Ovie and they could have beaten him to a pulp in seconds. Maybe the perrywrinkle coloured jerseys that the Thrashers have scared them.... They scare me.
  • Flames went down in... well, flames and have now not scored once in two games. In their defense they were playing the king of the shutout so yeah...... But letting in five goals ain't so cool for the Flames. Oh well. Who cares. It's the western division so.... nyah!
  • I sure other people were playing but I don't remember who. Oh well...

Hahaha! I love when that happens!
"Shoooooot the freaking puck, moroooon!"
... *silently watches the wraparound goal* ...
"...hum uh, yeah, or you could score with a pretty wraparound, if you prefer, of course..."

Get well soon EP!

Grrreg - yes... that was pretty much what happened with me. I was like "no way..... wow.... " and then everyone else in the room made fun of me for telling him to shoot it... well, for the amount of times that they didn't even get a shot away because they didn't shot the darn thing, I think I was justified in telling him to shoot it! =p

Kristin - I feel almost worse but my new voodoo is making me happy at least *G*
