Oh What a World

By Anne

Tuesday was a crazy hockey night, kids.

Thrashers roll over the Red Wings 5-1 IN Detroit! Hossa netted himself a natural hat trick in the first 21:14 of the game. Atlanta, who can't pay their locals to see the games, beat the top team in the NHL. Sweet. I love a good upset. Unless you're the EC Finals in '07, Ottawa Senators.

Jose Theodore, who made the toque over the goalie mask famous in 2003:




had his 24th career shutout- and his first since FEBRUARY OF 2004! What the heck? Almost 4 years without a shutout? I know they're difficult to come by, but that's a loooooong time. Kee-razy.

And THEN the freakin' Capitals beat Ottawa by 2+ goals again! What the heck? Green? Semin, stepping up to fill in for Nylander and his shoulder? Ovie? What have you been drinking?

I am happy to report that Jason Spezza seems to have recovered from my curse. He didn't score, but he did have plenty of ice time. S(h)ara and I fear that our attempts to curse the Rangers deflected off of Chris Drury's helmet, still covered with residual Buffalove from when he was nearly decapitated last year, and hit poor Mike Nylander of the Caps, keep on, keepin' on with that torn rotator cuff.

Who ever writes the NHL. com "Game of the Night" really loves describing a close loss as a "nip".

This is the list from today's Game of the Night page:

That's weird.
I'm sick to death of hearing people talk about how Soupy won't talk anymore. Goosie said they don't talk about contracts in the locker room, and I think that's probably the best policy considering SabreBritney and his lack of living up to his millions. I think for the time being we should follow the Goose's policy and think of Western New York as a collective locker room: it smells kind of funny and we don't talk about contracts.
Sidenote, does Jose Theodore look like Neil Patrick Harris to anyone else?
