My New Favorite Hockey Team

by Anne

Unlike a certain team that shall remain unnamed, the Pirates continue winning and continue to lead their division.

They've won their seventh game in a row and have earned at least a point in their last 10 games.

Last night they beat the Providence Bruins 5-2. The Bruins are the only team to have beaten the Pirates in regulation, and last night they got their revenge.

Mark Mancari scored YET AGAIN, giving him 11 goals and 24 points to continue his hold on the points lead in the league. He's currently on a 7 game point streak and a 6 game goal streak. TIM CONNOLLY AND AL KOTALIK ARE DOWN, PUT ONE ON IR AND GIVE US MARK. I will hold my breath until this is so. On top of all of his scoring prowess this season, he's only taken 1 minor penalty all season. That's it. His PIM: 2.

Mathieu Darche was the AHL's third star of the night as he earned himself 2 goals and an assist in the win. Kennedy had 2 assists and Gerbe had 1. Adam Dennis stopped 27 of 29 shots and the team has improved to 11-1-1.

My new favorite team ROCKS! And, in case you were wondering, the Amerks continue to be TERRIBLE. They're dead last in their division with a record of 2-12-1.

Also, please go to portlandpirates.com and experience their very brief intro. It's totally ridiculous and totally worth it.

  2. You're right.

    It was so totally worth going to the site, just for the intro.

    I'm still laughing over here.

    AlKo on IR seems like a good idea. And also something that might actually happen. Hamstring injuries are badbadbad.

    True. I'm fairly confident that Timmy was just out because of his usual "soreness" or whatever.

  5. That Pirates intro scared me the first time I went to their site after they got that up. It actually froze my browser, haha.

    The Portland Pirates are kicking ass, and I can't watch any of their games because I have no money! Hurray!
