Slip Us A 20

The redolent one said it very well this morning.  This record will be nice because we like records in Hockeytown. We like Cups and puppies and hookers, Charleston Chew and records.  We like consecutive playoff seasons, consecutive seasons as a Captain, consecutive seasons playing for one team, a whole lot of consecutivity.

But for all the records and the banners and all the accolades associated with being the best hockey franchise on earth, one thing is more important and Krupa nailed it.

“Is improving the power play a bigger goal than the NHL record for consecutive wins at home? You bet it is.”

Best article I’ve seen by Krupa since he started showing off his vocabulary to us sometime last year.  This record is nice, and it will be ours because the 8 pounder says so, but it pales compared to getting home ice, staying healthy and fixing the horrible power play. 

It’s a Live Blog bitches.  Nice, nifty little record on the line.  20 would be nice.  12 would be better.

They had a camera on Simmonds making the skate of shame back to the Flyers bench after the PP goal. He looked very sad.

Ok bitches, no more mistakes in our zone so we can nail down these 2 points.

They’re not confident down there in goal.

Reebock Commercial….....Stood in line at Starbucks today behind a Octogenarian wearing those nicely colored sneakers.  He looked “snazzy”. I didn’t think he was the target market.
