Completely forgot about this. Stumbled upon while reading the polemics about the dislodged goal. Just made me hate LA so much more.



Also, I was watching the Russian feed but did this really happen here?

I assume you're referring to the "Coverage will continue on NBCSN," right?

I watched the entire game on NBCSN. If anybody had to change channels it is because it went from being aired on 2 channels to 1, but I wasn't aware that it was on MSNBC too (not that I checked).

Nope, not referring to that. Although that's pretty messed up too. Once in four years, can we please figure out a way to show some awesome sports events without making viewers switch channels a million times?!

Viper, you are correct, sir! And here's your prize, which does not imply, convey, insinuate, portray, approve of, condone, or legalize any activities involving you, teddy bears and any of the Blues players, including, but not limited to, the one pictured below. :mrgreen:

Does that Freudian slip in any way imply that Russians wish they were Americans and Americans wish we were Canadians?

That was NBC's Freudian slip, Glen. You'd have to ask Bob C. and his crew.

This article answers my long unanswered question of what TJ stands for, but opens up a new question: how the hell do you get TJ out of Timothy Leif?

Wow, anyone see this quote from Slava Voynov?

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck- ... 54242.html

He knows Quick well, as his teammate with the Los Angeles Kings. Too well, maybe, because he said after the game that Quick may have dislodged the net on purpose.

“I can tell you myself, because I am his teammate and I play with him. It is in his style to do something like that. Yes,” he said. “The question is why wasn’t it noticed? That’s the question to the referees.”

Yeah, not sure how Slava and Quick will get along in LA after this remark. I don't think he pushed the goal on purpose but that play was freaky, he even lost his stick trying to get across the goal.

The YouTube embed feature works about as good as Flashchat does for the "Site redesign committee". :facepalm:

His dad is also named Timothy, so the TJ is actually short for Timothy Jr.

We look like we are coasting... as much as a team that has scored twice each period can coast.
