Good For You:

Charlie Coyle got his first NHL goal tonight which is always pretty cool as it’s something I will never do. Unless something changes drastically. I’ll get back to you. Anyway, congrats, Charlie Coyle. See? Something did happen in the Flames/Wild game.

I Dunno:

I found this on YouTube. It’s sort of tangentially related to hockey, I guess. Look what you’ve reduced me to, Wild/Flames. I don’t really know why I’m posting it. I kind of have, like, a moral problem with posting it. Yet here we are. Sorry.

Old Man Yells At Cloud:

Don Cherry said a bunch of things today. Very few made any sense. Here are some.

Wild vs. Flames

Minnesota Wild v Calgary Flames

 

Preview:

Our late game is a game that could easily qualify for one of our Forced Watching punishments here at BShelf, the Minnesota Wild take on the Calgary Flames. Actually, I think this was the inaugural Forced Watching and I made Bourne sit through this thing that sort of looks like a hockey game. I’m sure it’ll be a blast. But, hey, Jarome Iginla’s pretty great and Zach Parise is cool so…maybe I’m wrong and this’ll be fun. I hope I’m wrong. I’m usually wrong. Yeah. I got nothin’.

Lineups:

Minnesota Wild

Zach Parise – Mikko Koivu – Dany Heatley
Jason Zucker – Matt Cullen – Devin Setoguchi
Pierre-Marc Bouchard – Kyle Brodziak – Charlie Coyle
Michael Rupp – Zenon Kenopka – Torrey Mitchell

Jared Spurgeon – Nate Prosser

Even I Can’t Hate This:

Yeah, I know he cheers for the Habs but…this kid is awesome. Good job, good effort, random child.

New York Islanders v Montreal Canadiens

I Hate It When I’m Right:

Remember when I said I thought that the Habs might just be legitimately good? Well…

Gonna Need A Montage:

Man, they’re good at these.

 

Ottawa Senators v Toronto Maple Leafs

 

Leafs vs. Sens

Hi again.

Preview:

The quote battle unquote of Ontario rages on once again as the Leafs take on the Sens. I feel like I did this intro lately. Today we find out if my Days of Future Past scenario will come true for Leafs fans in Ottawa. I definitely wrote this last week. Anyway, Leafs best, Sens worst, but not really and it’s so early in the year (even though it’s not) that I don’t even know anymore. The Leafs will look to see if they can continue getting their otherworldly goaltending from Scribbles and the Sens will see if they can continue to play way above their heads after losing their best players to injury. Now they have to try and keep it up without their goalie as Craig Anderson left the Sens game against the Rangers on Thursday with a sprained ankle. He’s only day-to-day but we’ll see the human giant named Ben Bishop in goal for the Sens tonight. Should be fun.

Lineups:

Toronto Maple Leafs

James van Riemsdyk – Tyler Bozak – Phil Kessel
Jay McClement – Mikhail Grabovski – Nikolai Kulemin
Clarke MacArthur – Nazim Kadri – Leo Komarov
Mike Brown – Dave Steckel – Frazer McLaren

Mark Fraser – Cody Franson

Colin Greening – Mika Zibanejad – Erik Condra
David Dziurzynski – Zack Smith – Chris Neil
Kaspars Daugavins – Derek Grant – Jim O’Brien

Patrick Weircioch – Sergei Gonchar
Chris Phillips – Mike Lundin
Mark Methot – Eric Gryba

Ben Bishop

  1. Daugavins plays on both the third and forth line?

  2. No Colton Orr thank gos

  3. No Orr in the lineup tonight :(

  4. Kyle Sifverberg = Jakob Silfverberg

    Mika Zabinejad = Mika Zibanejad

  5. Sometimes I feel like this thread should be the Hockey Night in Selective Parts of Canada. Basically whatever’s on TV in Toronto.

    The Jets already played today, and the Habs are playing now. With the best record in the East and in Canada, is it not worth at least mentioning that there is a game in Montreal tonight? Or are we going to wait until Don Cherry says something xenophobic about them, or racist about Subban, first…

    • Just going with what’s on my TV here, not trying to slight the Habs.

      • I know, but this is how you do it every week, so you are, even if inadvertently, slighting the Habs. If you’re in Toronto, you will always get the Toronto game. But CBC has all the Canadian games online, so it’s not like you can’t watch them (even more than one. Put the one on your TV, and another on a computer – assuming you have a laptop or your TV + comp are in the same room).

        • If cool stuff happens in the Habs game, I’ll definitely throw it up. For the previews I go with either what’s on my TV or what’s being aired in the majority of the country. More than happy to talk about the Habs game, not ignoring its existence. I’ll try to find some good stuff from that game and put it up, though.

          • Fair enough. Although… I will admit, having watched the first period… you probably won’t have anything to put up. Barring some weird collapse by either team, this will likely be a kind of boring game.

  6. Mika Zibanejad and Grabovski score and cherry won’t mention them but probably Orr and other fighters!!! Good ‘ol Canadian boys

  7. Nice montage clip!!

  8. I just re-read the rosters for the Wild-Flames gam and realised that there were several names I haven’t even heard yet. This game is that exciting and everyone is so involved.

  9. I liked the X-men reference! :)

  10. Re Don Cherry: I liked The Simpsons reference.
