Thomas Hickey laid out a monstrous hit on Jonthan Drouin last night in every sense of the word. If you were watching the Islander/Tampa game last night you got to see some shit. An absolute bomb by HedMAN, an awful Leddy goal. But, if you were Jonathan Drouin, you weren’t seeing much other stars and fuckin rainbows after Hickey’s body completely annihilated you. Drouin was damn near baby giraffe after the hit.
This isn’t stick and puck over at your local rink, don’t make that move at the blueline…ever.

Safe to say we are viewing Mortal Kombat right now with this Islander/Capitals series. This has been one of the more exciting series in the playoffs thus far. There is a lot surrounding each game in this series outside of the rink that just adds more excitement to each shift of the game and that’s really something we need to see more of as fans. We have this being the last playoff run at Nassau Coliseum for the Islanders which built up this first round so much as it is. We have capitals fans in New York being heckeled incessantly by savage islander fans (which will happen to any fan at any playoff series so those clowns need to lighten up). And there are people stealing seats from Nassau. I mean my god. One playoff run and everyone loses their minds.
Last nights game however really picked it up about 12 notches. Wilson lays a big hit on Visnovsky which I am pretty sure his grandfather felt. Wilson becomes public enemy number one afterwards since Reggie Dunlop put a bounty on his head. Orpik takes a skate to the face.
And then after the Cap win someone was generous enough to provide Orpik some beer. See. Not all isles fans are bad.
Anyway, I am expecting the next game to get ugly. I want to see some more big hits. I want to see Matt Martin chirp the Caps all game. I want this to escalate like the Habs/Sens series should have escalated. Don’t let me down boys.

Welp. NHL writers at it again with their headlines and captions. This one is just a little aggressive, don’t you think? The “Great White Way?” Listen guys, it’s 2015. Let’s try and be a little less, Hitler/white supremacists and be a little more current in American culture.
Anyway, these are the other top headlines on the NHL site this morning:
1) Carl me maybe
3) Scan slam
4) Ducks in a row
5) Stemp it up

Tonight, Winnipeg will host its first NHL playoff game in 19 years. They face off against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in game 3, and I guarantee that building will be insane. Jets 2.0 are down in the series and this home game should help boost their performance.
Thing is, the Ducks are a strong team. There is only one way to beat them tonight, and that’s to pull a move from the Ducks own playbook. The Winnipeg Jets have to come out in their retro unis. It worked for the ducks in D2 The mighty ducks. It means it can definitely work against them too. Think about it. This could be the biggest event in the post season. The Jets coming out in their retro unis led by Teemu himself.
This straight up needs to happen. Shove their game right back at them and shove it down Gordon Bombays throat.
Senators Head Coach Dave Cameron
Things got a little ugly last night in Montreal. Lars Eller thought it was a good idea to butt-end Meeky Zibs in the waj. And then later in the tilt Subban chops at Stark Mone’s wrist and fractures the goddamn thing. Subban got 5 and was tossed. And then came Senator’s head coach Dave Cameron’s presser after the game:
This guy fuckin rules. He’s got this villain-like demeanor to him. He’s like a cross fade between Benedict Cumberbatch and David Bowie. Cross fade.
So pretty much Cave Dameron is like “yo suspend Subban or we get a free shot at Pacioretty Thursday”
Now that Mark Stone is going to miss time with a broken wrist, Cumberbatch will be inserting Chris Neil into the lineup….
Your move Therrien.
Mike Smith plays goalie for the Phoenix Coyotes. Smith’s arguably the best puck handling goalie in the game right now and he scored goal tonight against the Detroit Red Wings. He’s got more goals than Claude Giroux.
Seriously though. But really with that ending. I swear I’ve seen a lotta shit in my time but DAMN. Not sure if I’ve ever seen the Cup legit stolen like that. Unreal. Bruins are basically “HEY HONEY I’M WINNING I’M WINNING..AND I’M DEAD.”
Toronto commin in HOT:
Fuckin karma bro.
