The pregame show is making me sad… stop showing replays of Smitty already! Hopefully the Stars can win tonight. They all have to be feeling a little weird after the events this morning.
Nisky has a bruised foot and Grossman is out? Gee, I guess that means my two favorite defensemen will be getting more minutes tonight. Jancevski has been called up to fill in the holes of our teeny tiny defense corps.
Most importantly, Boo and Stu are both back tonight.
Well someone scored for St. Louis while Eriksson was in the box because St. Louis players have wimpy sticks. I’m still tired of them talking about how great the trade is.
Annd Mike Modano missed a completely empty net. Good job buddy 🙂 Apparently the puck was tipped… less fault to him since we won anyway.
It’s good to see Boo back on the ice. He just hit someone too, yay!
11:40 1st – Norstrom gets run over. I pretend to be worried.
The Stars bench looks short today. I wonder if the remaining Finns miss their Juicy; I know I do. Thanksgiving at Hagman’s house will be smaller this year.
They’re talking about Brenden now. The usual “Brenden plays great, there’s a reason why he has the C on his chest..” They say he’ll be the guest on the first intermission. Yay! His eye still looks pretty bad.. I want to know who beat him up in practice.
Razor mentions Stuy’s eye surgery. It’s really not a big deal guys. I got my eyes lasered, and was perfectly fine in a week or so. I couldn’t see to drive at night, but Stu doesn’t need to drive at night when he’s playing…
End of the 1st – Still 1-0 Blues. I’m eagerly anticipating the Brenden interview. The Diet Dr. Pepper commercials really annoy me. Brenden time! He seems a little upset about the trades. I know he and Smitty were good friends. He’s the first player to make me laugh today.
Razor: It has to be hard playing tonight with the guys gone and the new guys not here yet. How are you plowing through it?
B: Well, not very well.
His eye looks like it’s getting better. I’m still curious as to who beat him up.
2nd period – It’s kind of boring so far. The Stars don’t look very motivated to get two points out of this game. Tippett looks the same as he always does. At least we don’t have to worry about scoring after this game since Brad Richards will score enough goals for us to win every game. It’s so refreshing to be able to throw that whole “scoring by committee” crap out the window.
Ribsy, Otter, and Lehtinen have a 3 on 1 and they can’t manage to get a decent shot off. We’re being outshot 16-3.
3rd period – I’ve been gone for a while doing laundry and talking to my parents as my dad tries to console me and my mom cries on the other end about Jeffy. Eriksson is looking good… 3-1 Stars, although we haven’t deserved it until this period.
I guess the NHL got some refs at the trade deadline from tennis or something. I’m not sure what they’re calling out there. Hagman just had a breakaway and a Blue pulled him down; no penalty called or anything. 1:45 left to go.
Well we won. Loui is adorable. I miss Jussi, Jeffy, and Smitty 😦
