  1. Martinook will play if it is humanly possible. The guy was a bit unhappy to come out of the game Monday.
  2. While there is always hope, sometimes you just run out of healthy bodies. There are no words to adequately state how proud I am of this team and the joy they have brought to Jerk Nation this year. If this is it, then it's been a great ride. That being said...Strike first. Do unto others before they do unto you.
  3. Fact 1: Aho is wearing a knee brace. Fact 2: Teams do not divulge injury information. Fact 3: Every year at the end of the season, several players have surgery for injuries they have been playing through. Conclusion: While we can feel confident in knowing Aho has some kind of knee issue because of the brace, we don't know the extent, or if there are other issues. We will not know until they are eliminated from the playoffs. We know that Aho's productivity has tailed off for the last 20 games. Either there is some kind of cause and effect going on with his health, or he forgot how to hockey.
  4. I really think this series all boils down to today. I think whoever takes today wins the series. I don't like the odds of the Jerks having to win a game 7 in Washington. Win today, and close it out at home.
  5. Anybody that saw Ovi’s interview after the game has to know one thing. He looked defeated. No confidence at all. It may change with home cooking , but he looked lost
  6. I’m sure Ferland is worried about his market value, but he won’t have much for the Canes. Expiring FA contracts don’t bring a lot in return for teams just looking to get a jump on negotiations. Brindy didn’t seem real happy the other night when Ferland told him he couldn’t go
  7. Looking at Washington fans' reactions, you'd think Foggy decapitated him. It was not that bad of a hit, Oshie lost his edge after and his momentum carried him into the boards. Unfortunate? Yes. Dirty? No. Should not result in a suspension, especially when Ferland's match penalty was overthrown. A stern talking to...maybe. Hilarious to look at Caps fans' comments about how dirty the Canes are playing.
  8. Up for game day. Having my coffee now trying to decide my beverage choice for tailgating. Probably Port City IPA. It's a well balanced IPA that isn't overly "pine tree" from too much hops. Good warm weather sipper.
  9. I thought of this and it made me laugh more than it should. Who else gets it? It could be a great goal celebration.
  10. Great job, Hag. The Big Guy does a good job branching out with different beers. I don't have a complicated beer log, but I have a beer pole. Any time I drink a different beer, the cap gets nailed to the pole. About 250 on it. I haven't figured out a way to properly memorialize draft beers, but I'm working on it. Whenever I retire and move from this house (kids gone and too much house), that pole will come with me. It's my life's work. I missed Monday, but will be there Thursday. Tailgating starting noonish. I hope I get s show as good as game 3. I expect a strong pushback from Washington after the Jerks made them their *edit* on Monday.
  11. Staal had his best game as a Cane. Played up to his size.
  12. This would be a good time to have Tim Gleason in his prime.
  13. After reflecting a bit, I honestly don't know when or if I remember such a dominating performance, and especially against a tough team. NHL playoffs...there is nothing like it. NHL playoffs with the Canes...even better. I love the tough edge, but Svetch needs to get a handle on what he's doing. I know he is trying to up his game, and he has risen to the occasion. Fighting above your weight, up 1-0, and already down Ferland just isn't smart hockey. Ovi driving his head into the ice was bad, and he probably landed a punch more than needed. Ovi dropped gloves first, but it sure looked like Svetch was not trying to get away. Let's hope this is short lived.
  14. That was awesome to see. So happy for the Caniacs in attendance
  15. Physical players are going to have a short shelf life. It just goes with the territory
