Chaos! At the AAC

Obviously the biggest story to come out of the Stars-Pens game is the Sidney Crosby-Matt Niskanen fight.  I’ll admit, it seriously freaked me out. When I saw that it was Crosby who was fighting Niskers, I was all, “OMFG I CAN’T EVEN. NISKERS? AND CROSBY? WHAT’S GOING ON?”

Let’s just say that if you went to the game intending to see Crosby do something crazy, well…you got your wish.  Personally, I thought it was gutless of Crosby to go after Matt Niskanen, a guy who has only ever been in one fight in his NHL career.  Hey, Sid, go with Mark Fistric next time. I guarantee you will not win that one.  This is why I don’t like Sidney Crosby.  Thank you, Sidney, for backing up my claims.

In addition to the Niskers-Crosby fight, there were three other throwdowns, two of which belonged to Jamie Benn, like this one with Chris Kunitz:

And then this one between Morrow and Kris Letang, which caused an outrage among Penguins fans:

I’m not really liking the whole, “BRENDEN MORROW WENT AFTER TANGER BECAUSE OF HIS HAND. OOOOH WHAT A TERRIBLE PERSON” bullshit.  It was some heated poking and prodding between the two, and it’s not like Morrow chose Letang specifically.  It was a spur of the moment thing. So, please, stop whining.

This was an especially satisfying win because it was against my least favorite team in the NHL.  What makes it even more amazing is the fact that the Pens got a load of free calls, including some that led to a lengthy 5-on-3, yet we still showed them what’s up.  One non-call that infuriated me was when Geno Malkin retaliated and put a blatant cross-check on Morrow, I think, and didn’t get a call.  I guarantee if a Stars player does that, he gets put in the box on a cross-check call. 

It was so sweet to beat the Pens at home for the first time in seven years. Some teams warrant a bit of a celebration after beating them, and Pittsburgh is one of those teams.  We played well and didn’t take any of the Penguins’ shit like most other teams do.

Loui Eriksson had highlight of the night:

Three words: sweet silky moves.  Jussi Jokinen would be proud of such a wonderful demonstration of his move.

Next up: Dave Tippett and the Yotes.

Make it happen.

Best of the Search Terms, Volume 1

I’ve gotten so many strange search terms to find this blog that I felt the time is right to compile them all into a post.  I call it “Volume 1” because I’m sure there will be more wacky and strange search terms in the future.

So, here, we, go:

Alex Ovechkin Personal Life

Doesn’t the picture say it all?

Sasha’s his BFF, of course!  Why, what were you thinking? 😉

Dallas Stars Fashion

You want Stars fashion? Buy the calendar.

Sean Avery in a Suit & Sean Avery Smirk

I can’t help you with the suit, but is this the smirk you’re looking for?

Disgusting.

Victor Hedman Christmas

Merry Christmas, ladies. 🙂

Why Ducks Hate Marty Turco

Because he’s known to be a Duck-killer at times. 

Cory Schneider 09-10 Canucks

I think it’s because I called him a creepy ginger kid.

Marty Turco Personal Life

You won’t ever hear me talk about a player’s personal life, except for marriages and babies.  Honestly, I am a puck bunny.  But I’m not going to act like it.

Pavel Datsyuk Wife and Kids

Ditto above.  Plus, I wouldn’t even know that.

Brad Richards Girlfriend

This is the number-one search term for my blog, and it scares me.  There’s this site dedicated to the subject.   Poor B-Rad is being stalked.  Creepy.

Evgeni Malkin Winking

Why would someone even google this?

Hatcher’s Four Categories

Uhm, what?  If someone can explain this, please feel free to do it.

That’s all for now.  But I’m sure that there will be more creep-tastic search terms.  The world is full of stalker-creeps.

These Are the Faces of the Future

The first five, most likely.

The first five, most likely.

I’m not gonna lie, but I’m seriously hoping for a miracle so that Brayden Schenn could become a Star.  I really like that kid.   But as we all know, it’ll be John Tavares to the Islanders, Victor Hedman to the Lightning, Matt Duchene to the Avs, and then…I’m not exactly sure.  But it has to go that way; it’s perfect for all three teams.
The Islanders need a franchise guy, and they could get that in Tavares.  He’s easily the most skilled player in the draft, and the Islanders are lucky to have the chance to draft him.
 
Coming up: Why Hedman and Duchene are perfect for the Bolts and Avs respectively, and pre-draft rumor involving one Vinny Lecavalier.

Grading the NHL Awards Fashion

I feel like being a critic, so I’m going to grade the guys’ fashion from the awards the other night.

First up, is Alex Ovechkin:

I like this one. :)

I like this one. 🙂

I love his tie.  I just like his entire outfit.  It’s an improvement from last year’s red tux thing.  I love that little smirk he’s got.  It makes him look even more studly than he already is.  I’m glad that he took home the Hart.  Is it just me, or did Geno look a litttle mad that Alex won the Hart?  I don’t know what that’s about, so whatevs.

Ovechkin Wins the Hart

So Ovie’s keepin’ the Hart.  Can’t say I’m surprised.  I thought it was a great show.  I thought it was hilarious how that big-time Mike Modano-wannabe, Patrick Kane struggled to open the envelope.  Poor kid looked really flustered.  I also thought it was funny when Tim Thomas asked Manny Fernandez if he should thank his wife for him.   I loved when Ovechkin said that Malkin’s English is better than Pavel Datsyuk’s.  Classic.  Datsyuk was hilarious as usual.  I know I should hate Datsyuk for being a Wing, but I love the guy; he’s a total stud.  I think it’s because he’s Russian.

Anyway, here’s the list of winners:

Hart- Alex Ovechkin

Lester B. Pearson- Alex Ovechkin

Selke- Pavel Datsyuk

Lady Byng- Pavel Datsyuk

Norris- Zdeno Chara

Adams- Claude Julien

Calder- Steve Mason

Vezina- Tim Thomas

And I think that’s all the important ones.

I thought it was silly of Ovechkin to say that the Caps would win the Cup next year when the Stars are obviously going to be the 2010 champs. Wink, wink. 😉

NHL Awards Tonight

The big question tonight is whether the Hart Trophy will go to Alex Ovechkin. Evgeni Malkin, or Pavel Datsyuk.  All three are amazing players, so this’ll be a tough one to call.  I think that Ovie has the edge over Malkin and Datstuk, though.  The Hart is supposed to go to the player deemed most valuable to their team.  That’s where Ovechkin has the edge.

Is Malkin that much better than Sidney Crosby?

Would Detroit be a complete failure without Datsyuk?

The answer to both questions is, “No.”  Washington would not be as good a team without Ovechkin.  Bruce Boudreau is a great coach, but he wouldn’t be as good if he didn’t have Ovechkin.  He makes everyone around him better- his teammates and opponents. 

And, he might have won the Art Ross, but he missed a few games, and Malkin didn’t.  In those few games, Ovie probably would’ve had those four extra points to beat Malkin.  Alex Ovechkin is the best player, no question.

Besides, anyone who has the nerve to do a fire-stick celebration like Ovechkin did is awesome in my book. 🙂
