The beast must be fed....
A few smokies:
Clockgate gathers steam: PD
We can use a laugh: DGB
Next up: the Avs. How they're doing: DP
And a few random thoughts:
Sure, Jokinen wasn't covered, but the Hawks turned back up the ice in perfect formation. From my view, one of the big differences Thursday was that the Oilers were able to use their speed to gain an edge, then use a sharp pass to gain a bigger edge, and before you knew it, the whole Hawks D was in disarray.
That's twice this year that the Flames have scored on a play that made Keith look hapless.
Otherwise, Emery stayed at home, the Q random pair generator didn't look to me like a disaster. Harsh glare of scrutiny volleys back to the offense....
Stalsberg reminds me of Spaceman Spiff, hurtling from planet to planet, ever seemingly on the verge of careening out of control.
If there has been malfeasance by the Kings' timekeepers, I say dock 'em enough points to relegate them to the second division next season.
Please be gentle.....
