The Puck Drops Tonight On The Conference Semi-Finals

As you know, I try to follow each NHL game live as it happens and finally the schedule allows me to do so in a much more relaxed way.

I am looking forward to every matchup and believe we are in for some very exciting hockey.

Heh.  Two former Babcock assistant coaches in the CSFs:  MacLean (OTT) and McLellan (SJS), who also has McKittrick on his staff.

I still think the Kings are going to repeat, but I’ve got this weird feeling about the Sharks. We’ll see if my apprehension is real tonight.

And then the GMs, Yzerman (TBL) and Nill (DAL).  It is indeed a Red Wings world.  East to West, bitches.

Switching over to the SJS/LAK game.  PIT winning 4-1 with less than three minutes to go in the game and they’re playing ferocious forechecking.  OTT not getting any kind of offense going at all.

Kings are a dirtyyyyyyyy team. I know it’s almost impossible to repeat Cups, but I think the Kings are still the best team in the West over the Hawks. Quick is no *#$%@& joke. Very significant player to the King’s success. Hope he does as well for team USA. Howard stole a lot of games for the Wings this year. That Flames game was strange, but I couldn’t be happier with his play this year. However, Quick is a *#$%@&-A grade A keeper.

Also, I’m young enough yet unfortunately have bad back pain from hockey injuries. Anyone with lower back problems knows how troublesome/annoying this can be. Not sure if anyone else heard him mention it, but I remember Quick telling a reporter last year that if kids want to emulate his style, they’d better expect frequent trips to chiropractors/PTs. Maybe it’s just because I have back problems and I didn’t play keeper, but I have no idea how Quick plays the way he does. He looks different than any goalie I’ve ever seen. Definitely deserved the Conn Smythe, he was very exciting to watch this year and last.

I’ll still take Howie though…so until the Olympics, *#$%@& you Quick. You’re now like Goldberg and couldn’t stop a puck unless it was a cheeseburger.
