Ovechkin gives Cherry the finger (basically) – *UPDATED X3*

NHL All Star Skills Hockey
Since the Bruins stunk up the Garden tonight I dont even feel like doing a recap of the game. I would much rather discuss Alexander ‘where we go dance’ Ovechkin scoring his 50th goal of the season, the third time he has done that in the NHL. here is his celebration:

Game Day: Broad Street meets Causeway Street

capsgames017

Alright here we go…

  • Bruins – 42-12-9. 93 pts – 1st place in East
  • Flyers  – 33-18-10. 76 pts – 4th place in East
  • Bruins are 84-54-21-4 v.s. the Flyers all time
  • This is the third of four meetings between these two teams this year. Each team has won one game.
  • Last time they met the Flyers won in overtime at the Garden on Feb 7 on a fluke-dump in goal off of Chuck Kobasew’s leg
  • That goal gave me a second reason to hate Randy Jones. (first being his intimate introduction of  Patrice Bergeron‘s face to the boards last year)
  • Philly is coming off consecutive losses to the Devils on Sunday and Canadians on Friday
  • Boston is coming off a 4-3 OT loss to the Capitals on a fluke-ish dump in goal that Thomas probably should have had. The feeling inside the Garden when Semin scored only 22 seconds into overtime was almost the same ‘what the hell was that?’ feeling that happened when Jones scored his OT goal in February for Philly
  • Philly and Boston are tied for 7th in in the league in penalty killing with 83.1%
  • The two teams are also are neck and neck on the power play with Boston edging Philly for 4th place at 22.9% efficiency

Things to look for:

  • Second game back for Danny Briere after being out for 36 games due to abdominal-groin surgery. I cant imagine he is fully back to
  • Will Lucic Play? Last word from Julien after practice is that he is ”day-to-day” and ”He’s a possibility for tomorrow.”
  • Will there be a trade for either team by game time? This is always the time of year that someone gets sent out for warm ups but suspiciously doesn’t come out 20 minutes later for the start of the game…
  • Does Hunwick go on a 3 game goal streak?
  • Jeff Carter = dirty.  36 goals this year. Has not had a goal in 2 games, which means he is overdue
  • Carter has 9 game winning goals this year, good for 2nd in the NHL behind Patrick Marleau of the Sharks
  • Can TT aka ‘The Tank’ aka ”Hamburger’ put the Washington loss and fluke goal behind him? – Of course he can…but I dont want to hear about any “magical goals” that defy gravity and don’t follow the laws of physics after this game.  Even if Carter does something like this:

Bruins 4-2
