    Oh Bryz :lol:

    Oh what a game last night by the Yotes against the Capitals. So everyone knows the Caps are dangerous on the PP. key to the game: stay out of the fucking box!. After 1 period the Yotes are up by 1. Very nice. Second period: Caps up, 3-1, thanks to, in part, 3 fucking penalties from the usually well behaved Mikkel Boedker. And we got a string of PP opportunities, yet the lovely Mike Smith negates a 5 on 3 for us by deciding to play the puck past the red line, while leaving the ice on a delayed penalty call :lol:. Ugly second period.

    Then with 5 games left in the third the boys woke up with Korpikoski scoring a goal, and then Captain Coyote (who was in beast mode last night) takes matters into his own hands by giving me my second DOANER BONER!!!! of the night and we go to OT, but not without getting another delay of game penalty in the last seconds of regulation :roll: :lol:

    Yotes kill off the 4 on 3, it goes to a shootout (again :roll: ) and both Vermette and Boedker (both who would almost never score in SOs last season) score! And both Caps shooters (2nd one being Ovechkin) either don't get a shot at all (replay of Canucks last shooter in SO?) or miss the net! Damn, Smitty has been a good shootout goalie as of late, without having to make any actual saves :lol: :lol: :lol:.

    Great comeback! The Yotes so far only have one OT loss at Jobing.com. Hopefully this will continue. Oh, and it wasMike Smith bobble head night. Aaawwwww yeah

    Woo! Looks like Boston really has Tampa Bay's number this season. 3-0 against them by a combined score of 11-1. That Stamkos injury looked really bad. He might be out for a long time (broken tibia). Might miss the Olympics too. Hopefully he makes a speedy recovery.

    Poor Stamkos :(. Hopefully he can recover as quickly as possible.

    Man, what a steal for the Yotes tonight. Out played, out shot, just not out goalied. Smitty robbed them! Thanks to this win the Yotes tied for 2nd place in the league with Colorado and Chicago :shock:. Of course that will probably end on Thursday, when we play Chicago :lol:

    With Devils in the "Who will win" all 30 teams have been there at least once. Rangers & Penguins 6 times, Ducks, Bruins, Flyers and Maple Leafs 5 times. On the other side Flames, Hurricanes, Blue Jackets, Panthers, Predators and Devils only once. This excludes tonight's Pens vs. Flyers question.

    Honorable mentions: Kings & Canucks 4 times, Coyotes 3 times, Blackhawks only twice.

    Lots of activity in HTC lately with a few long-standing ties broken and some folks leapfrogging others. Nice to see someone other than the evil Nuux nipping at my heels. WTG Chris!! Some tough choices tonight as Rangers/Habs have a lot of history but neither have been lights out this season. Tavares has been on fire but I always hate to say Yes to the questions about particular players scoring goals.

    Enjoy the game Kate n' Ryan. Sorry ya don't get to see Stamkos :cry:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Fantastic game by the yotes tonight! Won 6-3. Wow St. Louis looks tiny in person. We had great seats. Credited with the hat trick but the scorebroad said yotes got exactly 30 so that should take my leapfrogging of Nuux away :cry:

    Fucking game of the year so far (Bruins/Blues) ruined because the NHL decides that they don't want to find a winner by playing hockey. Would rather end in a tie than a skills competition.

    So, Ilya Bryzgalov is now an Ambassador for the dealership I work at. He gets a 2014 Volvo XC60 to drive. I said we should throw a "Stress Puck at him to see if he saves it. Stress pucks are foam rubber little pucks that you squeeze.

    At least his wife is hot.

    You can never go to another game :lol: :bitch:

    Bruins beat the Penguins last night though. :D Reilly Smith and Carl Soderberg look fantastic on the ice together. That 3rd line is really clicking right now. Loui Eriksson looks great too. Liking the return we got from the Seguin trade.

    November won't end soon enough! 1 HT whole month compared to 9 in October, a bunch of SOs, including last night. Or maybe it's just a clever ruse to put everyone else in their comfort zone and then when nobody expects it - WHAM! BAM! I'll give another heart attack to CaptOblivious like in previous season ;)

    i mean this in the nicest way possible but fuck the yankees and your inability to put a holiday in the proper month. because today was consumer assault day all the hockey games were early. i log on at 230 my time figuring i had 1.5 hours or so to make my picks and lo and behold 2 games were over and the 3rd was deep into the 2nd period so there goes any chance of a hat trick :bitch: :bitch: :bitch:

    I've been wondering for years now without any real answer - why are teams in the West so much better than the East ones? A week or so ago, a team that was 9th on the West would have been #1 on the East by 3 points or so. There's also bigger culmination of star players in the East than the West. I'm not saying there are no star players in the West (there's tons of them) but they don't seem to have the same market value as the East ones. Sedin sisters, Thornton, Kopitar, Smith on the West don't really compare (in market value) to Crosby, Ovechkin, Stamkos in the East.

    And this trend shows up in NBA as well. You get like 4 teams in the East that are over 50% wins in the Playoffs and in the West sometimes even 10th can't reach PO threshold with 50%. And it's the same with players there as well.

    I don't know about other major US sports since I don't follow them.

    PS: I put Kopitar there because he's the best defensive forward in NHL :D :D

    Sorry sir but the sisters thing isn't permissible since Torts put it to rest at their contract extension presser :P

    I have to say that I was on the fence with an open mind when he was announced but have been totally swayed to the dark side of Tortorella fandom since his arrival. Despite lackluster results in the standings (compared to other West teams of course), I'm quite pleased with how he has the team's been looking, the contents of every one of his pressers and the identity he seems to be helping the team forge with renewed energy and determination in their play. I'm not planning the parade route or anything but my dislike for Alain has been wholeheartedly replaced by my appreciation and respect for John and I think we'll fare better in the playoffs if we actually get there :lol:
