The other night, the Edmonton Oilers were wrecked by the Buffalo Sabres in Edmonton losing by the score of 10-2. The game was so bad that when the Sabres were leading 9-2, the Edmonton fans started chanting, “We want 10!”
They even cheered the goal! The only time I can recall Rangers fans, or and fans for that matter, cheering for the opposing team was when Eddie Giacomin returned to the Garden as a Red Wing. The Rangers fans booed the Rangers every time they scored that night and cheered when the Red Wings scored. Edd-ie! Edd-ie! Edd-ie!
This hour has 22 minutes has a great video on the All Star Game:
Follow this link and then play the video titled, “Geri at the NHL All Star Game.” (Duh).
Have to do this one quickly because I have a train to catch in 15 minutes:
Devils over Bruins – It takes a lot for me to pick against right now, but the Devils have been just as hot as the Bruins lately.
Lightning over Canes – The Lightning know that they have to rely on Mike Smith (a very capable goalie) now that Kolzig is out for the season.
Thrashers over Islanders – Thrashers looking for the season series sweep tonight!
Panthers over Habs – The Habs look to continue their mediocre season. The Panthers have a whiff of Playoffs and they want more!
Wings over Stars – If I was Marty Turco, I wouldn’t be very confident tonight. Turco is 0-8-0 with 2 ties and a a 3.36 GAA at the Joe in his last 11 regular season starts there.
Sens over Blues – Sens get their win of the week tonight.
Avs over Leafs – I’m in a hurry here.
Kings over Blackhawks – Back to back games are a bitch, aren’t they?
Sharks over Coyotes – Come on, meow. *gimmie*
Bruins over Devils – I am totally on the Tim Thomas bandwagon now.
Canes over Lightning – Meh.
Thrashers over Islanders – This is like the battle of the suck.
Canadiens over Panthers – Why not?
Red Wings over Stars – I’m thinking the Wings are pissed off as hell about the last game and the bans on Lidtrom and Datsyuk, and are ready to take that anger out on someone. Enter the Dallas Stars.
Blues over Senators – Seriously, I flipped a coin. This is a battle of last-place teams.
Leafs over Avalanche – I’m feeling daring.
Blackhawks over Kings – Come on now.
Sharks over Coyotes – Hahahahahahaha. *gimmie*
