Live Blogging The West

How many times have you laughed during the first period from Vancouver?  It’s been a constant chuckle.  You think Breezy collapsed? The Wings would have Bob Luongo chewing his own toes off by the 2nd intermission of Game 1.

What a weird experience to watch playoff hockey without the stress.  If you’re watching, live blog it.

Ahoy, Chief.  Glad you’re able to catch a few hours of some hockey, man.

I’ve already tuned out that game and I’m now watching the SJS/LAK game.

What I would pay to see Dustin Penner go toe-to-toe against Chumpo Joe Thornton.

Poor Thornton had a boo boo.  Looks like he’s hurting in his right arm.

I feel like Nelson Muntz here. The Canucks game has been one big ha-HAH!

These teams were made for each other. Slightly diva-ish, arrogant as all hell, about as mentally tough as melted Jello.

Shartreuses go on a two-man adv. for 1:22.  Still scoreless.

Versus….any mention of the Kings game on the intermission?

Kings’ Jonathon Quick was fantastic.  Several stone cold saves from the Shartreuses best shooters.  Kings fans showing love for the two-man kill.

Nucks have gone 2 minutes into the second without being scored on…so they have that going for them.

Jeebus… I did not even finish typing that and 4-0

Quick, right now, is the best goaltender in the game.  Sumbitch robbed Marleau of an open net chance.

Scoreless after one period of play in the Kings/Shartreuses game.  Kings’ Jarret Stoll is just killing on the faceoffs in every zone.

You know, I need to go to bed soon.  I took today off, I can’t get away with taking tomorrow off.  But this Vancouver meltdown is hilarious and keeping me awake.

WTF’s the matter with that team?  They got the Lackhawks right where they’ve wanted them and they showed up with that gutless performance in the first.  Just no sense of urgency to be the next team to move onto the next round.

I have no idea SYF.  The only thing I can figure is that they are trying to out choke San Jose.

Agree.  At this rate of performance by VAN, we just might see a repeat of the Bruins epic choke against the Flyers in last year’s playoffs.

Luongo is, I believe, a strange eastern european variant of 2 different names:  Cujo and Legace.

This sh*t is bananas it’s so awful.  It’s like watching a wet poop you drop in the woods slowly slide off the ruined picnic table you destroyed partying the night before and into the ground to create a dirty mess.

You’re friends all ask why you can’t look away, and you have no idea.

How do you get outscored 12-2 after you go up 3-0 in a playoff series?  That’s not taking your foot off of the gas; that’s taking your foot off the gas and turning around to rummage in the backseat while talking on your cell phone and applying makeup.

Cold yes, but Legace would never shake off a bad performance. Bobby Boy here seems to be of the same pedigree.

Thank god Jimmah seemed to learn that from Osgood.

The “Oh shit I just let in 5 goals. Oh well, next game I’ll shut ‘em out.” mentality. Legace never seemed to have that when it counted.

No, man, I agree.  George said it best, “Mentally tough as melted jello.”  Ugh….

Kings really hitting harder and forechecking more ferociously.
