I saw an alarming stat today. The Blackhawks are 10-12-3 against their own division but are 31-4-12 against the rest of the league. As long as they don't play a Central team in the playoffs they should be OK!
Only ten games left! Man, I am so out of it. I've been spending so much time on the TV show that I lost track of things a bit. Where did the freaking Blues come from? Already cliched a playoff spot and I totally missed it.
Chris Neil of the Ottawa Senators breaking bad on Johan Franzen of the Detroit Red Wings:
"I'm there first shift and any shift he wants. He wants to drop his purse, take the lipstick out, put it on his lips and 'Let's go.' Anytime. Any day. Anywhere." Oh, no he didn't!!!
"For me, it's not a part of the game, I couldn't care less what [he says]. I'm not going to fight him. It's easy as that. I've had enough concussions and definitely not going to risk one doing something as stupid as that."
Franzen then added: "It's like me asking him to be a good hockey player."
It is on now! That's why I love hockey!
I also saw a week or so ago where Vancouver, leading by 3 entering the final period gave up SEVEN goals and lost! I would love to have been a fly on the wall in the dressing room and heard what Torts had to say about that.
Filming for me is almost over so I can start working on my playoff beard pretty soon.
