Why just last Wednesday I was lamenting about the sorry state of hockey in Tampa and DC. Apparently, all I have to do is bitch about something going wrong here on the ‘Head, and the fabric of karma will be stretched and twisted to conform to my every desire.
I’m so fucking sick of not being a millionaire and not driving a Bugatti Veyron. Let’s see if that works. In the meantime, hockey talk.
Lightning: Fedotenko, Lecavalier, St. Louis and Taylor all scored goals. Party Marty also had an assist, but Prospal had two. The reasons the Bolts won the game against Columbus? Paul “holy shit this kid can play” Ranger and Rob “the beak” DiMaio. Neither of them is on the scoresheet, but their play—digging shit out of the corners and along the boards—allowed the other pussies on the team (yes, I’m talking to you, Brad Richards) to get shots and make nice passes.
Capitals: A little quick word-association for you. Ovechkin. 28th. 29th. 30th. Hat trick. Overtime. Game winner. Loud yelping. Amazing.
