Autumn’s Closing In…And The Ship Must Be Cleansed

I honestly don’t know how any of us have survived.  Wojo pointed this out today and it reminds me just how much I hate the playoffs.

Since 2010, Detroit’s past 10 playoff losses have been by one goal.

That’s just disgusting.  As disgusting as a Wog? No, but close.

At least if we were Pens fans, our team would be getting blown out and the third periods wouldn’t be so painful.

There is no doubt that this one’s big on a Billy Baroo scale.  They’re not winning this thing after going down 1-3 and losing two straight on home ice.  The penalties have to stop. The pucks need to find space behind some Rinne ass and I’ve got to absolutely slaughter some slimey, motherfuching wogs.

Ah yes. For the first time in my Navy career, I’ve got a serious conflict between the playoffs and maritime tradition. 

We cross over into the Raging Main at first light and the cleansing will begin soon after.  More than a thousand Slimey Wogs infest this ship at the moment so it will be a long, torturous process…a process that will prevent me from even following along via the LB comments.  For the first time in more than twenty years, I’ll find out the score of a playoff game well after its completion.

This isn’t a Game 7 but it’s damn close.  Lose this one and we’ll be living by the sword and that’s not where Bullet Bob, King Neptune or Davey By God Jones wants us to be.

It’s a Live Blog, bitches and I’ll either be ravaging my way through the comments afterward or deleting them all in one big bitter fell swoop. Please baby Jesus. Please let it be the former.

If I were Ken Holland I would write a bonus into Zetterberg’s contract that would pay him an extra million if he never makes another Hail Mary pass/shot from behind the net again.

I almost hate it when he gets a point from one of those plays.  I feel it reinforces bad behavior that usually creates a turnover.

so the Nashville player took a swipe at the Wing. even though he barely hit him, it’s still slashing, based on the rulebook.  which is why they called it on Franzen last game.  but not now.  interesting.

A goal is especially confusing because they look so pretty, but they’re complete pot luck.

Missed it.

Posted by Nate A

He missed it by rushing the shot.  The net wasn’t wide open down low, he should have taken a split second to ensure he elevated the puck on the shot.  Wide open blocker side missed by Buckets.

did anyone actually see the penalty happen?  I didn’t see anything on the replay.  it must have been a delayed call and Ken and Mick missed it.

perfect opportunity for Zetterberg to drive right up the middle, to the net, and shoot from the slot.

what does he do?  peels off to the side boards and passes the puck.

does that frustrate the ^&($ out of anyone else?

Nope, interference called but i didn’t see anything even close. Ken and Mick were saying the ref looked like a 3rd base coach with all his waving and gyrating.

CBC shows an incredible clip of Homer doing tip-in practice.  Seems like a puck every half second flying right at him.  He gets 10/15 and throws a tamtrum smashing his stick.  New stick = 7/7

Don’t fuch with an Angry Chipmunk, bitches.

The only thing the Wings are doing really well in this series is making Nashville look a whole bunch better than they really are.
