The day after Habs prospect Tim Bozon was released from a Saskatoon hospital following his critical meningitis battle, he was at the Cranbrook rink where his Kootenay Ice teammates met the Calgary Hitmen.
Following the puck drop, all the Hitmen climbed over the boards to shake Tim’s hand.
Talk about doing it the hard way. Sleepwalk through most of the game, fall behind 4-1, then storm back in the third period and shock everyone in the building by coming alive and winning the darn thing 5-4 by scoring four goals in seven plus minutes at the end of the game.
I was hoping for Alex Kovalev and Tomas Plekanec to have break-out games, and both guys produced two goals and two assists and basically pulled it out for the good guys.
The Habs won………even though they played lousy. This game must really piss off the Islanders.
Must have been a good Halloween party the boys were at the night before. Hangovers can really suck.
David Robinson of the Chilliwack Bruins of the Western Hockey league took a puck in the teeth Oct. 18th while playing against the Kootenay Ice.
A dentist in Cranbrook yanked his teeth back into position, then Robinson rode the team bus home for seven hours with his mouthguard in his mouth to hold everything together.
Is that impressive or what?
Rick DiPietro is in some people’s bad books, including the New York media. The Islanders goalie signed a 15 year, 67.5 million dollar contract in 2006, and since then, keeps getting hurt. Now he’s on the shelf again and he’s only got 13 years left on his contract.
Apparently, Rick DiPietro is no David Robinson. Geez, the media is hard on their players in New York. I’m sure glad the Montreal media isn’t like that.
Important thing to know about Habs defenceman Andrei Markov. “Markov” translated into english means “stamp”, as in stamp on an envelope.
So you can now call him Andy Stamp if you feel so inclined.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are doing so well I’m kind of embarrassed I called them dog excretement a while back.
My old hometown, Orillia, is famous for many things. Gordon Lightfoot and Rick Ley come from Orillia. Stephen Leacock spent most of his life there and wrote a book about it, titled ‘Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town.’
A Toronto TV show in the 1960’s, Perry’s Probe, did some research and decided Orillia had more drug users per capita than any other place in Canada.
But most of all, Orillia has the following, documented in this video. I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am.
