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.

Lost draw and the Flyers clear the puck.  Does every PP start the same way?

Why did the whistle blow without Flyer possession?

Seeing a Red Wing power play goal is like seeing a unicorn being ridden by a leprechaun.

PA said Bertuzzi goal?  I didn’t see him touch it.

As Bertuzzi says, who cares who gets credit for a goal?

I think the trip sent the play offsides.

Quit fuching around and saying we scored on the power play.  Don’t you guys realize my only score updates come from your comments? Lying like that is NOT FUNNY.
