    Clean hit on a big guy, takes the dumb scrap after and lands a few good ones.

    If he plays like this more often I'll take him for Polak and a 3rd.

    MASON'S COMING BACK BOYS!

    OK, no. But Dano is welcome to return.

    He must have super speed to be able to catch up to Orpik like that.

    Erik Gudbranson's own goal last night was hilarious.

    My favourite part is him looking back to the ref like "CALL SOMETHING", delaying the inevitable "oh man, I fucked this one up".

    Lol! True.

    Just bad luck there. There have been a number of defensive own goals and pass set ups this season so far. Maybe just pressure to make the playoffs is boyleing over.

    So yesterday I come home from work having picked up a nice bottle of Highland Park 25. Nice right?? It gets even better, as the missus (home on mat leave with our 2 month old) has made supper and our 2 and a half year old is acting like an angel. I get to watch the Sens game!!

    I call my neighbour, and good buddy, Chris over to watch the game. He likes his scotch as well and brings over a nice bottle of Balvenie. I'm pumped!! We decide to make a night of it and play a little hockey drinking game where you drink whenever a certain thing happens. We've all done it. The catch here is that you pick the other guy's condition (within reason). Chris says that I have to drink every time a Sens goalie allows a goal or just looks terrible. I cross my fingers and hope for the best.

    Well, here I am this morning. At the hospital. My stomach has been pumped twice (I think it took this time), I'm out a pricey bottle of whiskey and I now identify racially as green. It could be worse though!! My chosen condition for Chris to drink was that every time Zack Smith killed a play or did something stupid with the puck he had to knock one back. RIP Chris. Now he's dead and I'm just dead inside.

    I’ll be at the Leafs-Sens game tonight drinking bathtub vodka that I’m smuggling in. Should be in the Leafs trainer’s room by 8:15 being defibrillated.

    I missed the game last night, but another curiosity about this clip.

    How the hell was Orpik on a clean breakaway?

    This was a shootout from a previous game, Orpik hadn't finished yet when he was caught.

    OK, honest question.

    Is this counted as a shot on goal?

    If so, who gets credit for it?

    I watched the recap, looked like we dominated the second.

    Speaking of which, YouTube has made big improvements to their search functionality for NHL highlights. I love the "condensed game" highlights because they show you all the big plays, not just the ones that resulted in goals. You get a real sense of the tilt of the ice.

    If you enter the two team names in YouTube (ex: "capitals canucks"), the top search result is the most recent condensed game package every time. It's a nice change.
