SUNDAY MORNING COFFEE - 10/27/2013

Posted by ray on Sun, 2013-10-27 10:03


I have my coffee and ready to roll.

What happened to Joey Crabb?  Where did he go?

A wild shootout in the desert yesterday afternoon.  I didn’t know the Coyotes had it in them.  Oilers, yes.  Coyotes, no.

RNH has rebounded nicely after last year’s lost season.

Rob Klinkhammer is more of a wrestling name than a hockey name.  It’s shame he didn’t score in that Edmonton/Phoenix game.

That’s three games in a row with 6 SOG for David Perron.  What a devil!

Speaking of the devil, New Jersey pulled an unlikely upset of the Boston Bruins last night.  Or was it old-timers day as Jarome Iginla (G, 2A), Jaromir Jagr (2A), Marek Zidlicky (G) & Martin Brodeur (W) all were prominent figures in the game.  Give them the day off today, pleeease!

Big shutdown night as Crosby and Ovechkin were both held without a point with Stamkos & Malkin getting only 1 assist each.

That Phil Kessel is something else.

Logan Couture is heating up for what should be a career year.

Antti Niemi and Tuukka Rask will surely battle until the very last day for top goaltender honors, barring injury of course.

Carey Price was terrific in net again last night, but his team couldn’t gain any momentum in the game.  Once Pacioretty returns, Price will get on a winning streak if he continues to play this way.

Jimmy Howard has been struggling since his return from injury.  He’s lost 4 in a row.  Try to grab him on the cheap.

There are only 8 teams with a record under .500 in the NHL.

Johan Franzen had 7 SOG in the game against the Rangers; showing that he’s not so stubborn to shoot the puck after two straight games with none.

Top shooter on the Rangers Saturday night?  Anton Stralman. Yikes.

Patrick Roy has done an amazing job in Colorado so far.  Let’s see how long this lasts.

The Sabres just can’t score.  Perhaps they need to change coaches again.

Poor Thomas Vanek.

The Philadelphia Flyers are turning it around and Steve Mason is finally getting the wins that he deserves.   It helps that everyone is back in the lineup too.

These young Islanders are looking good so far this year: Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen.  You know besides JT & Matt Moulson.  Nielsen is tied for third in league scoring.  Just thought you’d like to know that.

I think Lecavalier likes playing in Philly.  What do you think?

Standings are finally forming into what they should be except I have to do a double take each time I see the Avalanche at the top of the Central.

I definitely did not expect to see a 2-1 Shootout game in the Winnipeg/Dallas game.

There are too many top goalies getting injured this year.  Perhaps it’s the smaller pads?  LOL

Patrick Sharp had 7 SOG last night with no points.  With only 5 points in 11 games, now is your chance to get a top goal-scorer while he’s cool.

Jason Pominville has 6 goals and 0 assists.  Who does he think he is?  Jeff Carter?

Without Pekka Rinne, Nashville is in for a lot of hurt for the next 4 weeks. .

The biggest, biggest surprise this year has been the play of the Calgary Flames so far.  Everyone expected them to be the NHL’s doormat.

Calgary defensemen Kris Russell and Dennis Wideman were both plus 5 against Washington.  Wow!

That’s the Karri Ramo the Flames have been waiting for.

Jason Chimera outshot team mate Alex Ovechkin 6 to 5 against Calgary.  Say what?!?!?

You just have to applaud the Columbus Blue Jackets for their play this season.  Let’s all sing Lady Gaga’s APPLAUSE!

Boston and Colorado perfect on the road so far.  Vancouver 6-2-1.

Dallas and Florida are 1-4-0….must be too hot still in those areas.

New Jersey is 1-5-2 on the road.  Ewwwwww!!

Enjoy your week!
