I'm only in this job for another couple of days, so what are they going to do, fire me for straying from the kiddie pool?
1) Just a quick note on last night's Kings goaltender (pun not intentional): Does this guy channel Roman Turek when he plays against the Blues or what? First time we see him this year, he's coming off a 50-shot shutout of the Dead Things, he has this incredible .950 save percentage in his last five games, and he gives up two Turek-esque (much worse than Mason-esque) soft goals. Last night, the Johnson shot. He was in perfect position and square to the shooter. How in the fuck does that puck go through him? I mean, it's nice to win the game and all that, especially when somebody note wearing the note loses it for his team by letting in a soft goal, but seriously...
2) Brad Boyes is cursed. I used to think he was snakebit. The guy could not get the puck to settle, or the goaltender would make a desperation lunge save, or he'd hit the post (mind you, this was only when he was in the near vicinity of the net and not rocketing shots high off the far glass), or his stick would break. With that in mind, he needs to do something to break this curse. So today's poll question is:
What should Brad Boyes sacrifice to the Gods of Hockey to break his curse?
A) Chicken (2 votes)
B) Goat (8 votes)
C) Human (7 votes)
D) Any hockey stick he's ever touched, or thought about touching (17 votes)
E) His hands (6 votes)
F) All of the above (25 votes)
G) Other (5 votes)
