Very informative GDT. Me likey


6-4 Canucks, feel like it's going to be a high scoring game. 


Pettersson gets 2 goals, Roussel gets the monkeys of his back, Stecher scores one (why not), Horvat with the GWG and Virtanen with an empty netter to seal the deal

Solid job on the GTD! Really liking the who's hot, not, and who to watch. Nice work. (IMO, Eriksson is on the wrong list. I haven't checked but I feel like this is the best we've seen him play...)


Game talk-


Tampa is really &^@#ing good, but I feel like we can keep it close and take advantage of their road legs. 


Really looking forward to some more sneaky Petey. Tampa seems like the kind of team he'll exploit.

It's going to be an insanely tough game to win; after all, Tampa has only lost 9 times this season....but one of those was to the Canucks and that was with a not 100% Brock. If the Canucks do pull out the win, I think it will be because the game was a complete battle royal, high scoring game where the final goal wins it and both goalies get smoked. Just like the Colorado game.

Today we pray. May we be Boessed by another exemplary performance by the prodigal son that is Brock. Assisted by Bother Horvath.  


Hear me, one who Boesses us all, may we also be witness to the continuation of the streak of the Alien of St. Petey. 



Boessed be.
