What a Weird Wednesday

by Anne


Wednesday was full of ups and downs... actually mostly downs.

  • Cap'n Craigory is hurt and OUT for a few weeks :(... this story made me legitimately sad, maybe its just because I have all this hockey sadness to unleash but we haven't suffered a 3rd period giving up a 2 goal leadcollapse yet, so it had to go somewhere :'(
  • There was no Sabres game :(
  • There was no Project Runway

The nightly WCB report:

Chicago v. Edmonton

Chicago wins it 3-0. Sharpie scored the first goal which is therefore, technically, the game winner! He had a 2 point night (1+1),was a +1 for the evening and was picked as #2 star after Nikolai "Anybody wanna goaltender? No? Really? Ugh, fine we'll keep him" Khabibulin. Yay!!!


Sharpie!! Write Out Loud!!!

San Jose v. Philadelphia

WHOA. Periodically throughout the night I was checking on scores. When it was 4-3 after the first, I knew this game was not going to be a clinic in solid defensive hockey.

Pickles had 1 pt on a PPG (0+1), finished -1, but lead the team in ice time with 27:50. Woooo!!!!


This was the best Getty Images had to offer from the game
Where's the Sharks' French Canadian Pimp's adorable face?
Stop smushing it, Scott Hartnell!


Detroit v. St. Louis

Errr my WCBs for these teams were mostly quiet.

Brett Lebda had 0pts, even +/-, 1 missed shot, 1 giveaway and 2 PIM.


Skate for the puck, Brett!!!!

Jay McKee had 0pts, +1, 1 hit and 1 blocked shot. Woooooo. Thus the trials and tribulations of loving defensemen.


This picture is technically from the game on the 18th, but its still
AWESOME CUZ ITS JAY MCKEE

I'm not surprised that New Jersey got a shut out, but I am surprised they scored 5 goals, that's kind of unlike them.

Apparently all that talk of "regrouping" and "fixing problems" and "trying to win games" from the Senators camp hasn't really done much because they lost 3-1 to the FLORIDA PANTHERS. Remember when the Senators used to be all tough and scary and "AHHHH THEY'RE GOING TO EAT US!!"? They might still beat us, but they seem about a kabillion times less scary this season.

With the exception of the "Kahlua Line" in Atlanta (which is pretty awesome, a line of Little-White-Kovalchuk) can we PLEASE stop naming lines? Unless its universally AWESOME like that one, lets just stop. I actually tried to sit down and name one of our lines, completely unsuccessfully. Like, the Pizza Line? Really? Alfredsson-Spezza-Heatley, because they always deliver? LAME. You know what else gets delivered? Mail, the newspaper, and babies. And the "mail must go through" boys, it's a way more effective slogan than "at your door in 30 minutes or less or it's free".

I have to run out and buy a book between classes. Ugh. Not fun.

  1. I can honestly say that I was so bored last night with no Sabres, no Project Runway, and no other hockey. I literally did homework all night, while watching endless hours of NCIS, House, and Law and Order. Like, seriously, 6 hours. Yikes...

  2. I had to work last night anyway so I didn't miss any (non) Sabres. And I'm busy tonight 'till 9 so I'm gonna miss the beginning of the game. Argh. Why must I be so BUSY?

    I was all ARGH WTF about Rivet too! Hopefully he's not out too long. Madness.

    LOL @ the Kahula like- shouldn't it be a White Russian though? (Little can be the creme) Sorry. and the Pizza line is too lame.

    I love how not scary the Sens are now. It's like their meltdown of last season carried over. Sweeet. They had 26 shots in the 3rd period and did not score. WOOO! That doesn't sound like delivery to me. More like it was late so it's free.

    And I told you that Sharpie was the man. He is brilliant in fantasy hockey play too- he had a ton of shorties last year for me and a decent bit of other scoring too. And he's good lookin, always a plus. ;)

    I've watched hours and hours and hours of Law and Order because, frankly, its always on, there are 3 versions of it and one of them has been on for like 15 years, they have a limitless supply.

    Ha, true. Anderson had like 41 saves or something redonk like that. So all that says is the Panthers have terrible defense and decent backup goaltending. The shots were going to the net, but hitting that pesky goaltender. Muahahahahha!

  5. Don't fret, Anne! Soph and I may have some almost not blurry pictures of Pickles from last night's game... if we ever remember to post them!

  6. can we PLEASE stop naming lines?

    The only line I used to name on the Sabres was RAV/RSV. Even if it only stands for initials, but RAV is always fun to say outloud.
