@#$*&)(!!!

Ugh. I missed most of the Canucks game yesterday, but Elise informed me that I didn't miss much. I watched part of the Chicago game tonight, and I have to say, I'm pretty pissed that we lost to the Blackhawks. We have an excellent record against them, partially helped by the fact that they have really sucked in recent years. This is a much improved version of the Blackhawks, but a 3-0 loss is unacceptable. Especially since goaltending was the one area that I am actually owning this week in fantasy hockey. Step it up! I expect you guys to be better than this! You are leading the division in an extremely tough division, holding onto that lead will require some effort! PLAYOFF HUNT! Do those words mean anything? They had better, because when I get home in May, there will be hell to pay if there is no Wild hockey for me to watch.

Now then, on to happier things.
Congrats to Mark Parrish and his wife on the birth of their daughter!
Did anyone see the Habs game yesterday? It was totally sick. They came back from a five goal deficit to win. That's the largest comeback in all of the Habs' storied history. I was SUPER stoked that I chose to spend a little of my precious bandwidth watching them beat the icky Rangers.
Joe Sakic had his first full practice today! I'm so excited for him to come back.
I got an amazing holiday card in the mail today from my HLOG sister Tracy. It has a GIANT Joe Sakic trading card on the cover and shiny, silver stars. I love it! Thanks, Tracy!

Up Next: Calgary. I really dislike Calgary, but they have a couple of awesome fans in HG and Leanne over at Double d(ion) and Open.Ice. Hits., respectively. We need to beat them! This is one of the teams that is creeping up on us in the standings, and we've had trouble against them all season. Someone needs to be assigned to Iginla...hit, kill! Something, anything.

According to my dad, who has Center Ice, the game was "the sickest shit he's seen in all of his years of hockey."


Lets hope that the Wild read this and win 13-0. Hah, like that would ever happen...

Oh geez...you guys re-signed Schultz!!!!!!!! I really like that guy for some reason him and Burnzie...no clue why.

That Habs game was unbelievable. So awesome. Too bad they couldn't manage to win a couple of their next games...

Bethany-Schultz is a very solid Dman. I find much less to make fun of these days. Same thing with Burns. I used to cringe in fear whenever he stepped on the ice, but now he's matured and gotten better.

Please please try to hit and kill Iginla. It seems that a big hit or fight is what it takes for him to takeover a game. So do a flames fan a favor and just try to hit Iginla.

Kirsten, you thought it was awesome for the Habs five days ago? UGH! I HATE MONTREAL! That was a night I wanted to bomb that friggin' joint. Anyone that's a Habs fan oughta be embarrassed as how can they be proud of rooting for their team when the fans decided to litter the ice with garbage over an unwarranted protest of a penalty?

Well, at least you and I both love the Wild. That's what matters most. ;)

Winston-Phaneuf was the one doing all the hitting.

Paul-I didn't see most of the game, I just heard the highlights, from a Habs fan, but yes, the comeback was awesome. Go Habs!
