Things to think about before tonight’s game

April 28, 2010
  • Remember what I said on my last blog about the 2008 Habs-Bruins series? Detroit did just what I was talking about last night. Washington is more than capable of crushing the Habs 13-0.
  • A couple of months back, I told my boss, who is a huge Bruins fan, that the hockey gods would find a way for the Habs and the Bruins to meet in the playoffs this year. At the time, neither team was in a playoff seed position. Boston’s already made it to the second round…
  • Don’t tempt karma all over the interwebs, Habs fans. I will find you. And if I don’t, the hockey gods will.
  • Mike Cammalleri is a Cap-Killer.
  • Eric Fehr is a Hab-Killer.
  • The Washington PP has to come alive sometime.
  • Benoit Pouliot has to come alive sometime.
  • Jaro can’t play like that for 120 (or more) minutes.  It’s just impossible.
  • However, I still have faith that Jaro can play extremely well.
  • Jaro is also better than whoever Washington can throw in net.
  • Some of you know the story of what is possibly the most heartbreaking moment I have ever experienced and probably ever will experience. It happened in Washington DC.
  • But real life and and hockey are not the same thing.
  • And I went back for another visit a while later and had an amazing time.
  • Don’t start your sentences with conjunctions just because I do it.
  • Washington finished the regular season at the top of the league. The Habs finished 19th, and also with the worst record in the playoffs. They’re not supposed to be in a Game 7.
  • Washington’s record in their past three 7-game series is 1-2.
  • Don’t riot.
  • Ovechkin-led teams have crumbed under pressure in big games in the past, one as recently as February.
  • Markov was on that February team.
  • J-Mart is not an inspiring coach.
  • But the Habs have team ethic in spades.
  • Kyle Wellwood is fat.
  • Boudreau may or may not be inspiring, but he’s certainly emotional.
  • The Caps seem to be lacking in the team ethic department.
  • Tom Poti is out, PK Subban is (probably) in.
  • I don’t actually know if team ethic is a thing, I may have just made that up.
  • Wanting to win the series and expecting to win the series are two different things.
  • The Washington Capitals may not be playing like it but they are a superior team by far.
  • Don’t drive drunk. I’m serious. If you drive drunk, and I find out, and you aren’t already dead from driving drunk, I will kill you myself.

    Wanting to win and expected to win are two different things. So…the question is who wants it more?

    Caps have so far played this series the way I thought they would, plus a little help from Bergeron and Hamr being on the ice way too long. Thankfully someone hit Martin/Pearn with the epiphany stick and have cut their ice time/made sure they’re babysat/put someone else in .(PK!PK!PK!)

    I’m just worried now that all the freakout and comparing Jaro to Roy yesterday will now bite everyone in the ass. It was something special but you wanna piss off the hockey gods? Dunno if those guys saw Anderson’s 1-0 amazing OT win (amazing because he was literally all alone and doesn’t have the shotblocking D we have and freaked the Sharks out enough to put the puck in their own net) where right after he fell flat on his face…
