    Personally I find doing an air guitar shirtless while holding a beer in one hand the epitome of classy and as far from uncouth as can be.

    To be fair to him, that's what they call a wild night out in Red Deer.

    GAB remains at three. in four games.
    35 shots tonight, though i think most came in garbage time (score effects)
    still... the only player that did not have a shot on goal was Hank Sedin. not even a shot attempt

    Selfish showoff.

    Clearly, you need to triple shift Jussi "soft hands" Jokinen. And you should have send Gags to us.


    I would like to extend a deeply personal thank you to the Ottawa Senators, New York Rangers and Las Vegas Golden Kuuuuh-niggits for keeping everyone the Jackets are chasing out of the points.

    Congrats to Alex Ovechkin for joining the 600 Club with a 2-goal game last night.

    [​IMG]

    Only 20 members in that club. The only active players substantially past the 400-mark are Patrick Marleau (529 goals, has played almost a decade longer) and Rick Nash at 437. Ovechkin becomes the 4th fastest to the mark with only Gretzky, Lemieux, and Brett Hull doing it faster. The two-goal night also gave him sole possession of the league lead in goals - if he finishes the season that way, he'd be the oldest player since Phil Esposito in '75 to lead the league.

    Congrats to Alex Ovechkin! It's been an absolute pleasure watching most of those 600 goals.



    Additional Notes:
    -Kuznetsov after the game - "Holy f*#$ that's a lot of goals."
    -Dustin Byfuglien failed to take/clear the puck three times as OV put the shot in on the second rebound. He finally found the handle as a Capital went to retrieve the puck for history and he purposely shot it down the ice away from the player like a dick.
    -Byfuglien is fat.

    I think "active" counts as, at the very least, being signed to an NHL team.

    Man, OV is looking old isn't he. Crosby still looks like half a teenager, AO's full-on pushin 40's Russian dude.

    I'm going to need a little more whiskey in my coffee this afternoon.

    Dash, we're talking about goals not home runs.

    Congrats to Ovi on his 600th career goal. What a great player he is, best goal scorer of our generation.
