Habs vs. Thrashers - Auld Redux Edition

Notes on the third:

-If Gomez rushes alone into four-man coverage one more time, I'm going to swear so much Santa will strike me off the list.

-Too bad there's no concede rule in the NHL. If one team doesn't give a crap for two periods, it should be allowed to concede the last twenty to avoid hurting fans further.

-When Halpern's playing dumb, there's not much hope for the rest of them.

-Plekanec mugs Kane, then looks surprised when the kid turns on him. Sigh.

-The most pathetic thing I have ever heard is the ten fans in Atlanta being led in the "goodbye" song by the organist.

-I wish Martin would bag skate them until they puke tomorrow, game or no game.

-A perfect chance to gain points on Boston and Philly and they blow it. This is the worst game, by far, this season.

Notes on the second:

-It's a good thing the empty seats in Atlanta aren't white. They'd be so bright, dead people would start to walk toward them.

-You have to like Auld, if only because he has Roy's "wink" on his mask.

-The Habs look like they're spoiled by the Bell Centre crowd. A half-empty building in Atlanta on a Friday night is probably not very inspirational.

-It should be impossible for a guy less than 5'6" to get a charging penalty. It looks more like bouncing.

-No way they're going to beat this goalie by pounding into his pads along the ice.

-Auld whiffed on the second goal like a backup who hasn't played in a month.

-Martin looks like he's passing a sandpaper turd.

-Kostitsyn is making some very pretty passes tonight.

-Non-hocky watching spouse says Oduya's nickname should be "Do Ya Want My Love."

-Well, this one is given up for dead. The Habs might be Lazarus, but I don't see Jesus Christ on the ice.

Notes on the first:

-Must be hard to be a backup goalie who only gets to play once a month. Win and you're only doing your job, lose and there's absolutely no point in your having a job.

-The PP had less gas than Yellowknife.

-Thrashers are clogging up the middle. Don't expect much from Gomez tonight.

-There's about as much flow to this game as there is in a dry gulch.

-Horrible end to the period. I don't know what's worse, giving up a goal with less than a minute to go, the Atlanta goal horn or the fact that they use "Ole" as their goal song.

The worst is the other team was not even trying. It looked like a friendly game between old-timers...
Honestly, I knew after the first goal that this was the end. What a terrible display.
