Haha, Islanders.

I probably shouldn’t laugh, because the Islanders beat the Sabres in a shootout not too long ago, but last night’s game was amusing.  The Caps are being rather ridiculous lately, with all this goal scoring and insane power play work and (with the exception of last night) awesome penalty killing.  The Islanders just sort of rolled over and died in that one.

In the manual they give guys when they get signed in the NHL, one of the rules should be to never block a slapshot with your face, especially when the shot is coming from Alex Ovechkin.  Chances are it won’t work out in your favor.

I don’t like Alex Semin, but holy cow, he’s been fantastic lately.

We’re getting the Caps game in HD tonight but I won’t be here to see it.  Frowny face.  Why is it always in HD when I can’t watch it?

The Sabres crapped out near the end of their road trip and tonight they’re playing in what one could definitely argue is one of those “four point games.”  They and New Jersey are right up there behind Washington (who is starting to pull away).  This is a game Buffalo needs to win, and not just because I want to keep the streak with me in attendance alive, and not just because if they lose and I have to hear about how it’s so hard coming back from the West Coast and turning around and playing a game, I’ll scream.  Yes, players, your lives suck.  You make millions of dollars chasing around a little piece of rubber.  It must be awful to be you.

I know Lala was less than awesome in his last start but Lindy can’t start riding Ryan again, especially with the Olympics coming up.

Oh, and I hate Kerry Fraser.  That’s all for today.
