Game Night Eyelids


Habs in Edmonton, the coffee’s brewed, the puck is about to be dropped, and already it’s my bedtime. That’s why the coffee’s brewed.

How long can I go?  And to make matters worse, it’ll be the same on Tuesday night when the boys are in Calgary. Time zones should be the same across the continent, with all games starting at 6:30.

Period One:

Dustin Tokarski is between the pipes for the Canadiens, and on the home front, the big pot of coffee won’t stop bubbling. I knew I shouldn’t have poured Lucy’s homemade sugar whiskey-based arthritis cure into it.

A Max goal called back, confusion at the blueline, the loathsome Benoit Pouliot scores with 19 seconds left, and it’s 1-0 Oilers.

That, combined with too many Habs penalties (4), and I’ve decided to make a double Harvey Wallbanger.

Period Two:

I just looked in the mirror and I look like shit. Maybe I’ll dig out the bennies and peyote buttons. It’s only period two, there’s lots of hockey left, and peyote makes me look better.

Unchecked and wide open, Yakupov makes it 2-0. So depressing, and the coffee and sugar whiskey aren’t working out. I keep missing my mouth.

Galchenyuk and Yakupov had dinner today at Yak’s house? John Ferguson would hate that. I’d better eat some buttons and drink some toasts to Fergie.

Period Three:

Just heard a noise. After asking the cat, it turns out it was my nostrils. Shut the %$&# up, nostrils.

Even though the walls are slanted and the floor feels foamy, the pills and peyote aren’t working.

The game’s not gone well. Lousy power play.  And there seems to be too many players on the ice. About 37 on each side. And one of the linesmen has snakes wiggling out from the holes in his helmets.

Oilers’ empty-netter. 3-0. I stayed up and partied for this?

I’ve got the munchies, and if you want my advice, don’t snort Friskies. It doesn’t inhale well and it’s not fair to the cat.

Shut out by the shitty Oilers and their insane coach Dallas Eakins. Good night.

  1. Hopefully your able to regroup for the next game Dennis. Seems the daze of half- niters are taking a toll, let alone an all-niter. A loss was bound to happen—BUT NOT THIS GAME!!!!!

  2. What was with the tripping call on PK on Hall at the end of the first? PK was clearly being followed by Hall, how can PK trip him?? I slow-mo’ed to double check.

    I fell asleep with 4 minutes left. What was the point of that??

  3. Dennis I believe this is your best write up to date. A few more like these and you may need a new liver and nostrils, but my Friskies stock will go through the roof!

  4. DK, now you know how much I miss RDS & Canadiens Express. In the past I could watch the game in half an hour & still get to work on time(or there abouts)! Friggin Rogers BS!!!

  5. Peter there was no flow from them right from the get-go. The puck was all over the place and you could see early on they might lose it. Just one of those nights. With a pitiful power play and too many stupid penalties, especially DD’s. And I can’t stand the Oilers coach.

  6. It was one of those games, Marjo. Lousy calls, dumb penalties, no rhythm. They’d better pull up their socks tonight.

  7. Road trip? It started off as a BAD trip in Edmonton. But Carey and the boys turned it around with a hummer, not a bummer in Cow Town.
