battle of penn game 2: who cares ??

mid-way through the pit v. philly game tonight, i realized that TSN pacific [for some reason i'm still getting every single channel, though i expected that to get cut off over a month ago] was showing the flames v. canucks 2004 game 7. so, i decided i'd watch it instead.... here's some things i've noticed and/or remembered:

iggy's first goal was the classic "iginla arm pump" celebration.

"the doors" (commodore/montador) vs. (brendan) morrison....

god, i miss ference (paired with warrener, who could still skate and throw some body). as i type this, however, andy picks up a penalty in the third period of a game 7. and then another one....

#17 was actually kinda good back then (chris clark).

i really quite enjoyed clutch and grab....

kippy doesn't look like his sv% was any better then than it is now.... but i know it was...

"the rookie" matt lombardi (only weeks before being dealt a year-long concussion by hatcher)

i actually celebrated the flames' 2nd goal, even i know vancouver will get it back with six seconds to go, and then calgary will win it a minute into OT

the first night that the red mile really happened was immediately following gelly's OT winner here, and i remember it took about 45 minutes to drive from 5th street to 7th street

with any luck next year, gio will look as decent as ference on the 2nd unit PP

wow. vancouver's tying goal with six seconds left is truly a comedy of errors by iggy... remember this ? him tripping over his own stick ???

i cannot WAIT to see jovo, dejected, in the box for the OT winner....


elsewhere around the league, it was really nice to see mike ribeiro do his best jamie mclennan impression last night at the final buzzer. admiteddly, osgood was asking for it FAR more than franzen was last year, but it's still always nice to see my favorite loser frustrated to the point of aboslute lunacy....MAN, i hate that chump....

it's also nice to see my boy jordan staal WAY out-growing sidney crosby in the beard department. even though sid's got a full year on staalzy, he looks a lot like an 80's highschool kid on the verge of buying his first razor, while jordy's got a pretty serious second-round beard going....

and if you haven't already, i implore you to hit the link in the next post. it'll be well worth your while....

if i wanted the 'sid playoff' look and my barber knew nothing about hockey...that is how i would describe the look i want. then, i can hang with the stoners by the bridge.

For some reason I know it as 'the working man.'
