Hossa… a Detroit Red Wing JINX

fleury-stops-hossa Here we are off to the JLA… and really – why the heck are we so happy? Our Flightless Birdies are 0 for 3 there. Crosby is a MINUS 3 and no points in those games. Our late season additions Guerin and Kunitz combined have ZIPPO points and are a combined MINUS 4. Someone must have done something there, right… yet Gonch [...]

Letang: He’s better than Gonchar & Lidstrom… RIGHT NOW

Experienced Trophy Lifter The pre-game storyline hype for tonight are mostly about Marian Hossa scoring 2 goals in another game 4 and that Pavel Datsyuk practiced with his team yesterday. Will Datsyuk play in Game 4 or will they keep him out until Game 5? Will Hossa continue his Game 4 – 2 goal production? If Datsyuk does play will he take some of the defensive pressu [...]

Are the Penguins better than the CUP teams??? Not yet they aren’t…

guerin-mug-shot Bill Guerin, from his interview on the PENS WOOHOO Train                               (Click here: Guerin BEST TEAM ) says this year’s Pens are the best offensive team he’s played for in his entire career…  “Sid and Geno bring their talent level and they make everybody else better.

The Great SNOWMAN You can say it isn’t so… but it’s so… I don’t mean just the TRADITION of beating the Capitals… everyone knows that TRADITION. The Great SNOWMAN But the TRADITION of… (more…)

Ovechkin, Malkin, Cooke, Letang, the Refs… Penguins lose

AO does Mikhail Baryshnikov If there is anyone out there reading this that didn’t enjoy the game they are more ‘hockey homers’ than they are ‘hockey fans’. Anyone who has read my posts know I don’t complain about the referees very much at all. It’s a very tough job and decisions have to be made in a second. They don’t get [...]

Round 2 Matchup… Washington Capitals vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

00ppfront In March – I provided a capsule 1st round match-up synopsis of my thoughts between the Caps and Pens and basically things are about the same except the change in the Capitals goal. Simeon Varlamov has played more playoff games than regular season games. His first playoff series and he comes up a winner with a 1.17 GAA, 2 shutouts, and a [...]

2nd Round Match-up? Boston vs Pens

Chara and Momma Chara Counting down the final days of the regular season I presented DR Hook’s Previews of the first round possibilities but never got around to Boston because we finally honed in on our beloved FLYS.  Speaking of those FLYS… aren’t they the sweetest for rolling over and playing dead for the 2nd year in a row. God Bless America. Boston is a p [...]
