5-2 Actually Sounds Better Than It Looked

by Anne

Things that are bad: Losing

Things that are worse: Losing to the Senators

You know, I saw Yo-yo after the game and he looked PERFECTLY FINE to me... and I am DEFINITELY a qualified medical practitioner, so, JOCHEN, GET OUT THERE. GOOSE, YOU TOO. TIMMY, STOP FAKING IT AND PUT ON YOUR DARN SKATES.

I still love you, Patty Lalime.

Petey did kick Chris Neil's booty in that fight. I don't care what anyone says, I love Petey.

HA! I just looked at the standings and even with the loss tonight to the Sens, they have 7 points and we have 14. Hahahahahaha. I don't feel quite as bad anymore, but 16 points to their 5 would've been even sweeter.

WCB Watch

Ducks at Blue Jackets

The Good: Getzy had 2 points (1+1) and was +2 with 4 hits!! Yay!!

Corey Perry is channeling my love and sending it to Getzy
Chris Kunitz is kind of uncomfortable

The Bad: Nasher was non-existent except for 2 shots on goal and 1 takeaway.


Blackhawks at Wild

Sharpie had a goal, was +1 and his team lost.

ONo had 1 assist and 1 hit and was +1 and his team won.... making them the last team to lose in regulation. :( Although they've only played 7 games and we've played 9. So if they lose their next game, TECHNICALLY we were undefeated in regulation longer.

His stick broke because the pressure of being the stick of one of Anne's WCB's was too much for it to handle.
Remember, ONo's been out for a while, his equipment will need time to adjust to the awesome weight of my adoration

Bruins at Oilers

Ok, the only kind of 1-0 victory that are usually entertaining is a 1-0 OT decision, and that's what this was.

However, there were no fights and only like 8 power plays all together. What a SNOOZE fest that probably was.

Ethan Moreau had 0 points because his team was shut out, 2 PIM, 3 hits, 1 giveaway and 1 takeaway. Woo. Hoo. I'm not even going to bother looking for a picture.

Red Wings at Kings

Greener got an assist!! yay!!!! 2 blocked shots! The Kings lost because Jason LaBarbera is not very good in shootouts. He allowed 2 goals on 2 shots and Osgood stopped both his attempts. In other news, I correctly guessed Detroits first two shooters and only 1 of LAs. I'm amazed I can name 3 LA Kings that aren't Matt Greene, Drew Doughty or Anze Kopitar. Ok, there's Dustin Brown and Jarett Stoll, but now you've REALLY tapped my resources. But, A+ for even getting to OT, Kings, the Red Wings are really good and last season you were... not good.

No pictures of Greener. :(

I need a new Detroit Red Wings WCB, Brett Lebda sucks and is not worthy of my love. Any suggestions? If your suggestion is "Pavel Datsyuk", I'll pass, because not a single on ice photo of him exists in which he does not look like he just descended from the Mother Ship.

Because no WCB Watch is truly complete without him, who was named first star of the week? WHO? Ok, no, not Thomas Vanek, he was last week, but IGGY!!

His eyes pierce the soul

Has anyone else noticed that the Chris Pronger and Dion Phaneuf "Is this Year?" banner ads on NHL.com are the same except for the color (and pictures of course).?They're both like "Some say the season only ends..... so his opponents can heal." Did they think no one would notice? I spend about .02 seconds a week thinking about Dion Phaneuf and Chris Pronger's NHL ads and I noticed, Flames or Ducks fans must've noticed.

If we lose to the Lightning on Thursday, we're breaking up and I'm keeping the ring.

I've been looking into the WCBs that will be heading to HSBC Arena this season.

Coming to see me and experience my love first hand: Rick Nash (11/14) J.P. Dumont (12/1) MATT GREENE (the prince of my Western Conference Heart, 12/19) Ryan Getzlaf (2/24), Peter Mueller (3/6), Whoever I pick from the Red Wings (4/6). Big Bear has already come and gone. AND SCORED ON MILLSY, JERK. JUST KIDDING, BIG BEAR, I LOVE YOU! I'm a little sad that Iggy won't be coming. :( But I shall soldier on!!!


Just a head's up, be prepared to read some permutation of the previous sentence in every blog post.... ever... until it happens and then my head explodes.


  1. The Bruins game wasn't THAT boring. Then again, maybe it was just more exciting than the nursing paper I was supposed to be doing at the time.

  2. The Bruins game wasn't THAT boring. Then again, maybe it was just more exciting than the nursing paper I was supposed to be doing at the time.

    Haha, I didn't actually watch it but I'm one of those fans Gary Bettman is trying to appease by attempting to increase goal scoring, so I probably would've been bored, lol.

  3. Tim Connolly has to suck it up and be a man now, seriously.
