Staal Brothers Competition

I’m back from New York City, and from the looks of it most of our viewers are now in their off-season. That’s cool though, the true Logers are sticking around. A few house-keeping items before we get into it today. First, the trip to NYC/NJ went pretty smooth, the roughest part was getting up at 5:30am the following morning trying to catch the Orange Line train at Haymarket. Luckily for me, the train was running more late than I was.

 Second, Versus sent me a bunch of shirts and posters over the weekend, actually a toooon of posters. The shirts are actually really cool so I’m going to give them away in a competition type format. Everytime I think of something clever I’ll post it, and the winner gets a shirt and a poster. If you want just the poster I’m sure I can send it, I have a bunch. Since I was gone this weekend I was not able to do anything for the Wings/Hawks Game 1, but that’s fine we’ll start it with Game 2. For the Penguins/Hurricanes series, which starts tonight, we’ll start it off with this. Which Staal brother will have more POINTS, Jordan or Eric? Here is what you have to do, in the comment section post which Staal brother you think will have more points throughout the series. Here is how the tie-break will work, since we’ll have a bunch. The first tie-breaker is giving us the exact number of points the winning brother will have, and the second tie-breaker will be giving us the number of points the losing brother will have. If we’re still tied after that, I guess we can give away a few shirts considering we’re just starting off. So, in the comments section  post your selection, be sure to use your real email address so we can contact the winner. Other viewers cannot contact you because your email address is not visible, but we can see it. 

Tonight I’ll take a picture of the shirt and poster so you know what you’re competing for, please make all selections no later than 7:30 pm Eastern Time. 

Bear with us today, it’s going to be slow. I’m going to be catching up on a lot of stuff today and I think the other writers are still recovering from their night at the Liberty Hotel. Check back in tonight, and make your pics now for the Staal Brothers Points Competition.

 Here are the rules again: 

  • Pick which Staal Brother, Eric or Jordan, will have the most POINTS in the series. (Goals and Assists combined.) FYI Jordan plays for Pittsburgh, Eric plays for Carolina.
  • The winner will get a Versus t-shirt and poster
  • Please submit how many points you think each brother will have as that will serve as the tie-breaker
    • First tie breaker is guessing the correct amount of points the winning brother will have
    • Second tie breaker is guessing the correct amount of points the losing brother will have.
  • Post your submission in the comments box, it closes at 7:30 pm EST tonight
  • Be sure to use your real email address so we can notify the winner
  • You don’t need to create a login or password, the comment section is open to everyone
  • Duplicate submissions will be deleted along with the original

Boston Loses Game 7; 3-2 in OT

Not much to say about tonight. Boston took it on the chin with a 3-2 OT loss. Ironically Walker with the OT goal. I really don’t want to go over the game right now, nor do I care, I wish the B’s had played better. But from what I did see, Boston had 35 shots blocked or miss the net. Among the entire team, Boston had THIRTY FIVE SHOTS BLOCKED OR MISS THE NET. In a Game 7 that goes to OT, give me 5 shots that hit the net, and I’ll show you a game that ends in regulation. And for a team to get 36 shots on goal for the entire game, that’s terrible. Not to mention that Boston had 4 PP chances to Carolina’s 2. But, I’m not going to dwell on this, I need to go to bed and sleep it off.

Either way, rest assured a few things. For one, don’t tune away from, we’re going to continue covering the NHL playoffs. Although give us the weekend, I don’t think much will be posted. Second, I’m looking forward to another Bruins season in a few months. Third, lets go Blackhawks, I think they may do it.
