Late Night Mediocrity

There is no way Ken Holland is awake right now.  Well, this is posting at 9. So, maybe.  He's watching the last few minutes of Lost, season 2. Catching up.  He doesn't understand why the fat kid doesn't get skinny. It's weird. He's confused.  Tired. Drowsy. Getting late. Time for bed.

Meanwhile...

...the team he built is coming off a riveting moral victory at an outdoor exhibition that started late because the NHL forgot how to tell time, read an almanac or try to explain just what the hell their top 100 means to anyone. Are you trying to tell me that Gordie Howe is like, number 82? 

Back on the west coast. Back to the rivals that once were but are no more because our "rivals" are now the teams we have to fight to make the 8 seed...Ottawa. Carolina. Buffafuchinglo. 

Good god.

But here we go. Are you awake? Are you, really?

If you are, you're who I thought you were. No matter the record, you're staying up. It's what you, we, do.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.

“Buffafuchinglo”....I like it.  I’m awake and drowning in expectation of the new “GRIT” PP unit.  Blashill has finally gone Ott of his mind.

Hello, dorks.

In 5 days I’ll be in Orlando, and in two weeks it’ll be Detroit. Can this team please do something until then so I can look forward to the freaking game?

Ok, different game, but the penalty call on Sweden that led to Canada’s 4th goal was complete Bantha Poodoo. 

Also, hello everyone.  Late games are easier in the Mountain Time Zone.

Hola bitches. Seems like old times when we used to this more often in the western conference.
Hopefully Captain Dennis brings some good mojo as he usually does when he attends these games.
