April 6 GDT #82 - Golfers vs Probable First-Round Losers

Recommended Posts

:habslogo:

 

The Habs take a break from booking tee-times to host the high-flying Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre.

 

The game is significant for a small first and a big last.

 

One, Ryan Poehling will be playing in his first NHL game.

 

Two, Bob "Oh Baby!" Cole will be calling his last NHL game.

 

Regardless of who wins tonight's pointless contest, the Leafs, having supplanted the Habs as Boston's great rival - perhaps the single most painful indictment of MB's stewardship - will go on to play the Bruins in the first round, and lose.

 

(I'd post cool pics to go with this GDT, but my image choices keep getting vetoed by the site telling me I can only upload 10.24kb. Oh baby!)

Oh man... the griping after TO’s first round loss. My ears have preemptively started to bleed.

Assuming it does happen, I'm hoping it goads the organization into making mistakes.

 

(My pet theory is that Vancouver will flip their 1st-round pick to TO for Nylander. But this would not really be a "mistake" for Toronto).

Habs will win and miss the playoffs by 0 points.

 

(My gut says 2 points)

No Byron suggests he's still recovering from the concussion he got from the Weegar fight. Did he come back to play too soon?

Team says he's been playing through a wrist injury and no reason to keep playing through it in a meaningless game

Fluky goals, but Lindgren is giving off a very Niemi-esque level of confidence to the team at the moment.

Bob Cole absolutely butchering the call on Poehling's first NHL goal. Jesus.

*camera focuses on an exuberant Poehling as Deslauriers fishes the puck out of the net for the rookie*

 

"Guess you can say Deslauriers will get that goal!"

 

Bob Cole fans are blinded by nostalgia.

That was great work by Lehkonen to get the puck to Domi and then Shaw for the 4-3.

A hat trick in your first NHL game ... the first Hab to do it since 1943!

No scoring ... but the #1 star of the overtime was definitely Bob Cole. In spite of everything, I will very much miss him.

Three goals ... and the winner in the shootout. What a first NHL game! Let's hope he can keep that up next season. :1gohabs:
