At the beginning of the season, the Beez penalty kill was horrendous, spending the first couple of weeks at the bottom of the league. That unit has rebounded nicely and is now 17th in the league and has 6 short handed goals (including a beauty from Bergie last night). They have the top power play in the league and the second best goals/game.
The Nose Face Killah is playing his best hockey evah, all the while taking stick shots to the nuts and cheap shots from Sindy Crosby like above (btw, the Beez got a power play goal 25 seconds into that powerplay... thanks bitch). Marchand leads the spoked Beez with 15 goals, including 3 shorties, and a +/- of 14. Bergie and Krejci are doing their thing and Loui Erikkson is finally looking like the guy they got from Dallas. But it's the young dudes who have reinvigorated Claude's team, especially the Spaghetti Twins, Landon Ferraro and Frank Vatrano. Vatrano is a legit Masshole, hailing from Springfield and going to UMass. AND he notched a hattie last night against those woeful pussies in the Burgh. Colin Miller has bolstered the blue line AND has a helluva slappah from the point!
So, can we go back to laughing at the Penguins for a minute? Remember how they were gonna light it up this season after picking up Fat Phil Kessel? Ooooh.... Crosby, Malkin and now Kessel!! These guys with Letang, Kunitz and Hornqvist were gonna score 5 goals a game. Um, Ryan Spooner has more goals than Crosby at this point. That makes me giggle. They are in 12th place in the Eastern Conference this morning, way the fuk out of the playoff race. The Penz have fired their coach and have since lost every game with their new coach. I don't know that they will continue to suck this bad. But I am going to enjoy it while it lasts. Ever since the days of Mario and Yahgah, this hypocritical collection of whinebags have bitched about the physical play of other teams all the while employing the likes of Ulf Samuellson and Matt Cooke. And watch the Golden Sid away from the puck. He's the classic hit 'em and run player. Evgeni Malkin is the only guy on that team who I can respect... a tough prick with a specific set of skills that will kill you quickly. But while he wears that penguin in a triangle, he's a dink.
Bye for now!
