First off, let me paraphrase the game by saying the Mooseheads lost to the Screaming Eagles 4-3 in overtime after allowing the Eagles two consecutive powerplays. Unfortunately our boys in the box were D1 and D2. The Eagles scored as they always do - by sitting one of their fuglings by the side of the net to receive a quick pass and tap it in. The fugling in question however, was not really a fugling it was scrappy little Jordan Clendenning who looks so sweet but plays like the spawn of icy Satan himself. He was assisted by burly mountain-man Dean Ouellet and ‘A for effort’ Chris Culligan. You can read more at the Herald.
Tomas Knotek remained out with the flu and Bryce Swan was out because of concussion like symptoms from an elbow to the jaw, and a hit to the top of the head with a stick followed by a knee to the noggin, all of which occurred during Tuesday’s game. This is what they will do to you in
Once again shots were high – 41 for
The Mooseheads had one full strength goal scored by – wait for it, wait for it – Andrew White unassisted. HOORAY….and how many puppy treats does he deserve for that awesome puppy trick. A whole frickin’ box. Playing with other boys is for chumps. So while I like the other boys – Superpowered eastern European types like Cheremetiev and Knotek; other Newfs like ol’ man Randell; French boys like ‘footy pajamas’ Bouchard or ‘big hits E.L.-XVI’, they have not helped my puppy achieve his goal getting potential. He is best left to his own devices. He rushed down the ice alone, got very close to the net, crossed in front of
I have a tendency to jinx him every time we are tied or if the team falls behind because that is when I fully expect him to pull out a goal for me. I also think that I am jinxing MacMillan. I have mad jinxing skills - look what I did to the poor Oceanic – swept, and all because I predicted two wins at home. Au revoir Blanchard, au revoir Veilleux “Q-girl weeps”, au revoir Frolik. Last night I went into the game with no puppy related expectations and he gave me the best of goals. Then, because it was on TV, it allowed me to peep at his crazy shifty eyes that I like so much.
Which reminds me that on Tuesday they had the camera on P-O (his attempted beard is worse than I ever could have imagined) and they discussed how he is in good spirits, how he overflows with team pride, and how has been playing very well in practice despite being put on the goalie backburner. How sweet he is. Of course we know they were only going to say good things about Mr Pelletier, we are not going to hear a quote from
The camera shows so much: P-O supporting the guys as they leave the room and head to the ice, Guillaume with no jersey on, sweaty post period interviews, and the fuglitude of the Eagle’s playoff ‘dos. Eastlink – I think I love you, you are so much better than online Telus feeds.
I have been bad and failed to give Brad Marchand his props. He joins Swan as a CHL player of the week. This gives him the right to shovel snow into the faces of CB children, to steal and break their toys, as well as to make inappropriate throat-slashy gestures to
David Connell has posted pictures from the Sea Dogs vs Titan(ics) game. We all know how that went down. Fully had his shutout, which people are claiming is his first career Q shutout, but the Q website actually says that when he played for Lewy he had a shutout against his now beloved Sea Dogs on Feb 18, 2006. How quickly the people of
Champion was pulled for Dyke after allowing 4 goals on 12 shots, only one of which was deemed to be dangerous. Some bitter man on the boards thinks the SeaDogs won 5-0 completely by fluke and played a shit game. 'But answer me this, you contrary bastard, how well did your team play? Exactly. '
Bask in the adorableness that is the Sea Dogs if you dare. Also allow yourself to bask in the glory of a happy post shutout Travis Fullerton in a suit. Simon looks adorable and much less like Andre the Giant from the front. My conclusion – no more photos of Simon in profile please.
