So the Blues game sucked. Well until the last minute or so. THEN we decided to kick it in gear. If, God forbid, we don’t make the playoffs, these are the types of games we will be KICKING OUR ASSES over.
The first period was not a bad road period. We just needed to be winning a few more 50/5o battles in the corners and keep getting shots on net. We had a ton of shots, they just weren’t quality chances. The second period and most of the third, it’s like we were sleep-playing. We weren’t hustling, playing defense, or doing anything that resembled Coyotes hockey.
Giving up a short-handed goal is unacceptable. That was a killer. In the third, we came quasi-storming back with two Doan goals (he is on FIRE in his last 17 games) and a Korpikoski snipe.
Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Lauri! Now Lauri and Marty are tied for the team lead in goals scored. Woot!
While this fact makes me pretty damn excited/proud/bursting into song at random times, it is not a good thing.
THERE IS NO GODDAMN WAY THAT HANZAL AND KORPIKOSKI SHOULD BE LEADING OUR OFFENSE IN GOALS. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME WOLSKI, UPSHALL, STEMPNIAK, AND AS MUCH AS IT PAINS ME TO SAY, VRBATA? You aren’t being paid to stand around and look pretty. Ok, maybe Uppy is, but still, DAMNIT GUYS.
We are 98% likely to be making a trade soon. We have scouts out at games in force and the personnel that we currently have are not getting the job done. If you want to hang around, you guys better get your asses in gear. Boedker and MacLean are NHL caliber players. So is Teek, when his hand isn’t broken (😦 ).
OH AND PRUCHA. PRUCHA WHO HAS 17 POINTS IN 15 GAMES. What a short-sighted move. Disgusting.
Anyways, on to happier things…… like……. MS Paint and the Rampage players had another event with their buddies from the children’s hospital. It is such an awesome idea to pair the kids up with a player. Check out the Rampage Facebook page for more pics….
