  4. "It's almost like Custer's Last Stand with all those shots fired at him." - Daryl Reaugh on the end of Marc-Andre Fleury's warm-ups.

  5. "I guess he likes it better when Sidney sets him up than win Sidney cuts him open." - Daryl Reaugh on the fact that Crosby got an assist on the Guerin goal and he was the one who once cut Guerin's abdomen open with his skate.

  8. Another Caps penalty and the Pens will have a 5-on-3 for a minute.

    "This got medieval right here." - Daryl Reaugh describing the penalty on the replay.

    Reaugh has a lot of weird sayings, but I like him and his insight. Him and Doc make a great pairing.

    And now there's a penalty on Crosby. What a shame....

    Well tonight is the final night of the Canucks' season.

    We'll lose 3-0 and try and play for a 1-0 road win like Vigneault has done twice now.

    ReplyDelete
  16. "Hal Gill's stick is not a very good one, now is it?" - Doc Emrick after Gill's stick shattered on a slap shot into the zone.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wait...by calling this the most-anticipated re-match in WEC history, aren't you implying that the WEC is actually anticipated???

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the WEC. It's like a 2nd rate UFC but they have some top notch fighters.

    I know you're joking, but in the context of WEC, it is an anticipated rematch.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. "Crosby walked out of the corner almost unmolested." - Daryl Reaugh

    How exactly is one "almost unmolested?" Oh, and Ray Bentley likes Razor's word choice...

    ReplyDelete

  54. DANIEL SEDIN GETS IT RIGHT BACK FOR VANCOUVER!!!!! CANUCKS ARE BACK WITHIN 1!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  56. SHANE O'BRIEN DID SOMETHING RIGHT!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. SHANE O'BRIEN LIFTS ONE UP PAST THE BULIN WALL AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WE'RE TIED AT 3!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    14 minutes to go in regulation. This has also been a really good game.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Canucks are going on the power play after what may have been the king of all cheap and unneccessary penalites. And I'm not talking about the call by the refs.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Was that one girl in the Fanarchy commercial a sports "panelist" or a porno site stripper?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Isn't this supposed to be Vancouver's power play?

    /St. Louis Blues'd.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  78. Well then....that was certainly a fun game. 7-5 is the final from the United Center and the Blackhaws advance to the Western Conference Finals and are the first team in the NHL Final Four!

    If Detroit wins tomorrow (or Thursday), a Chicago-Detroit series would make for one heck of a series.

    ReplyDelete
  79. &%&#!!! Season over.

    Alain Vigneault = Andy Reid (now 0-3 in 2nd round series)

    Shane O'Brien = The Minors

    An Opponent's Open Net = The Canucks' kryptonite.



    Oh well, as long as the Red Wings don't win it.
