best. text. ever

from my die-hard greasers fan pal, druz, post-game last night:
"i can't express to you my absolute hatred for those lil red f*****s skatin around lookn all pompous. i f****n hate the flamers.
ur ok tho."
you gotta love 3 in a row for les flamb├ęs in the battle of alberta.... well, i gotta. ;)

apparently now gio is a goon and dawes is "earning" his 850K.... other than that i think we still have a lot of problems and i'm guessing they will all be exposed on wednesday against a pretty tight colorado squad... i'm still thinking that will be a break out night for the wildcard --either because he's past due (mathematically speaking), or because i'm trying to remain positive.... ooor it's plain old fashioned wishful thinking....

the text i sent prior to receiving the above was "may the refs allow the best team to win," and i think the game was largely won/lost based on the zebras, i'm afraid. no way that shorthanded bourque goal should've counted and no way the iggy goalie-interference penalty should've been called. additionally, if stortini was bleeding at the end of the first, when he got a stick in the face from sarich at the end of the second, i would have been a little more thorough in looking for a second wound. i think the stripy guys were the adversary throughout, and both teams played hard in spite of it....

Why shouldnt the Bourque have counted?

BTW, the refs were soo bad last night. Jsut stupid bad. Iggy taking a penalty for attacking stortini after taking a hit when he was nowhere near the puck? Interference anyone?

You're right, the refs DID call that penalty rather quick after the "supposed" cut on Stortini. Our boys put in a great effort though, no collapse in the third as has been their wont. Defense held tight, and offense kept pressing. Although Iggy was held off the sheet, he was a force.

well, to me it certainly looked like a bit of a crosscheck, resulting in bourque retrieving the puck.... i could be wrong, though...

the stortini hit on iggy was debateably late, but the ensuing mugging on storts was definitely roughing. and apparently there was a missed high sticking call which led to stortini bleeding on that play anyways.

a lot of debatable calls (jokinen's penalty, for example) and a ot of missed calls. for both teams.
