Top Hits of the 2008-2009 NHL Season

I’m going to go with the top hits of the ’08-’09 season because metaphorically that’s what the kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid’s going through today. Because I am getting RAILROADED with work right now…enjoy the video, I have not been able to watch it yet.

By the way, I was walking past Tresca last night on my way home from work, and outside they had pictures of local Bruins players, autographed, with a note like “Thanks for the great food, Milan Lucic”. I was thinking, if I ate at Tresca or Lucca or whatever, I wonder if they would post a picture of me sitting in my cube working, an action shot of course, with a little note. I think it would be pretty cool, my only concern is that someone would try and steal it to make a few bucks by selling it on eBay.

OK, I had a chance to watch the video, and I think I can align my day really well with hit #4 or #2. Here’s why, as for hit #4, here I am thinking I’m  making a pretty good play today, I put the puck on net (finish off some projects) and then BAAAAAAAAAAM, I get blindsided and my sh*t goes everywhere….as for hit #2, here I am going through my day going to make some moves, get the puck deep, yea I know I’m going to get rubbed out, but whatever. Next thing you know the GD turnbuckle shows its face and picking my chicklets up off the ice (translated to I’m trying to cruise out of here, under the radar, I’ll probably have some things to do, and then BOOM, I get my clock cleaned by some project I didn’t anticipate).

Weekend Wrap Up – 2009 NHL Playoff

cupfinalslogo2009wa3

The Loge has been called out a few times this weekend for a lack of posts, specifically about the Bruins. You know what? I’m not sorry. The Bruins had a Friday night game and things got a little loose in Loge 19…then Lucca…then Four Winds. As a result of a wicked hangover and a left wrist injury from giving 75 high-fives per Bruins goal I was unable to do a post. And today? Honestly, I have been too lazy. My suspicion is that a few other members of The Loge have had to put in some face time with their other halves. Either way, it has been a great weekend for hockey and  not a weekend for Loge-ing (yeah, its a verb too). Here is a recap/preview of the weekend and what is left of it….

First the games:

Friday

  • The Bruins took care of Carolina pretty handily on Friday night, winning 4-1. Game was awesome, if you wern’t there you should have been. Here are a few recaps for you:
  • The Bruins Blog
  • Puck Daddy
  • Detroit took down Anaheim 3-2 on a goal with 49.1 seconds left in the 3rd by Nicklas Lindstrom. From NHL.com
  • Nicklas Lidstrom –- a six-time Norris Trophy winner –- broke a 2-2 tie with 49.1 seconds remaining in regulation on Friday night to give the Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 1 of their Western Conference Semifinal at Joe Louis Arena. It looked like the game was destined to go to overtime until Dan Cleary fed Lidstrom in the slot and Lidstrom got off a shot that was stopped by Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller. But Lidstrom followed the shot and fired his own rebound between Hiller’s legs home for his second goal of the night.

Brown Hits Hudler

 

Brown lays out Hudler. Suspension?

 

 

Both sides of the story compliments of NHL.com

“I didn’t see him coming,” Hudler said. “It happened really quick. I didn’t have the puck for at least two seconds. It was kind of late, but there’s nothing I can do right now. Obviously, it’s a hit on the head. I don’t want to be out of line, but I hope (the League) will get a look at it and do the right thing.”

Not surprisingly, Brown doesn’t feel he deserves a suspension.

“It’s the playoffs, I want to play,” he said. “I want to help the team. I don’t know if it’s necessary to get that suspension. It was just a clean hit. I wasn’t meaning to do any harm or anything. I was just playing physical. He got cut from his visor.”

Hudler was able to return for the start of the second period after receiving several stitches, but Brown was gone for the rest of the night and the Wings got a five-minute power play — much to the dismay of Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle.

“I’m sure they’re going to say it was dirty, but this is a game that’s played and physical contact is allowed,” Carlyle said. “We timed the hit. From the time he passed the puck until Mike Brown made contact with him, there wasn’t a second that went off the clock. It was at 8:36, and the clock did not move by the time he made contact. He didn’t hit him with his elbow, he hit him with his shoulder. Hudler was admiring his pass.

“They can talk all they want about a dirty hit. That’s not a dirty hit in hockey. You’re allowed to take the body in this game.”
