Postgame 20: Price can’t steal a game if he’s the only one playing

November 14, 2009

Congratulations to Carey, who has tied a franchise record for saves in one game, at 53.

Congratulations to the rest of the team, who must have beat or at least tied a franchise record for ultimate suckage.

Halfway through the second, there was a note taped to Pekka Rinne’s goal. It said, “Out for lunch. Back soon!” After he got back, he realized he forgot to stop for his dry-cleaning, so he went back out to pick it up. He was nice enough to pick Carey Price’s up, too.

Game 20 Gionta love: ZOMG he’s injured. If he’s going to be out much longer, I might kill myself. Seriously. He misses one game and look what happens. PLANT THE C ON THIS GUY ALREADY.

Andrei Markov: It hurts. In my heart.

Goalie Guessing Game: Technically, Carey lost. But he played so well. Amazing. It would be a shame to fuck with that momemtum, Count Chocula.

Chris Higgins Career Watch: He played Center in Ottawa today. Apparently, to the MSG guys, this was a big deal. He wasn’t terrible in the match this afternoon, but he wasn’t brilliant, either.

Travis Moen: I have finally identified the Hab on which I will have an irrational crush from now on.

Pierre et Benoit: have infected the team with idiot germs.

    Higgy at center! Apparently the play-by-play guys announced it was his first time since Juniors. Apparently they forgot he played center a few times here… It’s like he never played for the Habs… *sniff*

    So, Price can play goal and D, maybe someone should tell him to start shooting more. I believe he has 1 SOG tonight!

      One-man team! That’s what he was in Vancouver, and that’s what he was in Nashville.

      And there was a vast improvement between the two games, with five less goals against, and at least one SOG.

      How many games do you figure before he single-handedly wins the whole thing?

      As for Higgy, they all need to do some research. Not only did he play C in Montreal a couple of times, but he also noticeably sucked at it.

        But Higgy won a few faceoffs! I know, I was shocked too when I saw that happen. It was like “Higgy? Doing a faceoff? OMG HE WON IT!”

        I know players get bonus pay, but I wonder if Price gets Danger Pay. Hmm…

    JMart looks more like Count von Count than Count Chocula.

      LOL. JMart. Sounds like a discount store that sells… well… Jews.

    Are you trying furiously to find out what exactly is Gionta’s “lower body injury”?

      I was furiously out drinking but as soon as I sleep it off, I will be doing my research/stalkerating.
