Fuck Yeah

Chez Alana, most of tonight's 3-1 win against Detroit was pre-empted by a private showing of The Last Unicorn. Extinction is a bitch, yo. Nevertheless, I managed to catch some of the highlights including Hemsky's radical game of keep-away with the Detroit defencemen and Roloson's always-hilarious baseball move. One of these days, Roli. One of these days.

Staios made a really interesting comment after the game that a lot of the players try to get the puck to Hemsky at every opportunity because he's so awesome. Some teams have picked up on this and started giving the little freak extra coverage, which has hampered the Oil offence. Sounds like this is something that MacT is working on, which will hopefully lead to more breathing-room for Hemsky and fewer turnovers when he's on the ice. Pretty good!

Lupul hypnotized Detroit's defence twice tonight with his dreamy eyes, picking up an assist and a goal. Hot Champion 2006 Ethan Moreau gave himself a bizarre arm injury after slapping (yes, slapping) the side of Markov's helmet, and I think MAB made yet another enemy tonight in Loxy when he sent a painful-looking slapshot straight into Marty Reasoner's shin. Oh, MAB. Will you ever win?

EDIT: I forgot to mention that, during Behind the Mask, Hrudey (lookin' cute in a pink Breast Cancer Awareness cap) said that he thinks Roli has a better glove hand than Vezina-winner Kiprusoff! squee!

Marty is a target for off-target shots.

Do we remember the missing ear incident right before the trade?

Pretty sure Moreau dislocated his elbow...

Ethan 's shoulder popped out.

He apparently popped it back into place himself in the dressing room.

Uh, ok, he's all man. And then some.

Jesus.

Also...don't forget Marty's bruised lung right around the olympics - although that one wasn't caused by his own team. He's a magnet for paid. He's awesome.

And you're right, black dog hates skunks, Moreau is the manliest man ever!!!

And as for the slap...it was a manly slap, so that makes it okay.

*paid = s/b pain!

Holy crap Ethan, you can't be having old man pains now! Oh but I knew Staios was smoking hot for a reason!

By the way it seems that the hlog is getting a search almost every day for someone's girlfriend and whether Dion Phaneuf has a blog.

Hey, is that the guy from Fireball XL5?

LT, that's one of the characters from "Team America" -- great movie, if you haven't seen it.

Roli's baseball moves were a big hit when he was playing in Finland during the lockout: http://www.thestateofhockey.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=2262&view=findpost&p=28899 (or click me).

Or don't click me. Stupid blogger.

This one's better anyway:

speaking of player's wives, did anyone else at saturday's game notice (I think it was Moreau's wife) nudge (i think it was Smith's wife) as they stood by Lorieau during the national anthem because Smith's wife wasnt singing? Then Smith's wife rolled her eyes.

Moreau's wife smiled but Smith's wife did not look thrilled.
