Hello everyone. I am here for the first Shootout liveblog of the 08-09 season. As I said in a previous post, the Stars are in St. Louis tonight, coming off a much needed and deserved win against the Nashville Predators last night. Let’s get this shit started.
They are doing a story on Stu being an assistant coach, I’m pretty sure I saw this on Stars Insider, but that’s okay. I do not mind watching it again. (Dear lord please don’t let my laptop die before I find somewhere to plug this thing in in the living room.) This is my first liveblog on this laptop, so I am enjoying being able to lounge on the couch while blogging. I guess I kinda got off subject, didn’t I? Stuie looks so proud of his Traverse City plaque, which the Stars won. Because they’re awesome. Aw they are going to talk bout Boo-Boo!! Yay Boo-Boo. They are previewing the goalies, Marty and Legace. I love Legace, well, not tonight. But otherwise I like him. He was so awesome last year in the All-Star game, all five-foot-nothing of him. HELLO RALPHIEE!! I do wish they’d fix this IFB stuff, because the delay is a tad annoying. AW LUDY JUST CALLED HIM BOO-BOO! I love it. Why they have to mention Russian being out, because that is not something I want to be reminded of. Injury update….oh boy. Jere Lehtinen (groin) and Steve Ott (undisclosed) did not make the trip, uh oh. Ludy is a big fan of the injury policy, in that other teams don’t automatically know what injured certain players, I agree with you Ludy. Because I know personally that if Brenden had injured a foot, I wouldn’t want everyone going after that certain foot as soon as he’s back in the line up. At least I have a cat to entertain me during breaks.
20:00: I will use this time to say that…no one wins the tie battle. They are both equally awful. Let’s get this game goin guys! Opening line is Neal, Modano and Crombeen. D-men are Grossman and Robi.
19:00: Next on the ice is Eriksson, Morrow and Ribeiro.
18:48: Neal takes an interference penalty. Whatevs. He is too young to interfere with anyone! Blues have the number 1 PP so far. Wow, after a whole week. You must be proud.
18:28: Boucher lost his stick! OH NO! Got it back but now only has one glove! DO NOT HURT HIS HAND!
17:50: I have a weird love for Kariya, I don’t know why. BUT I HATE PLAYING HIM. GET THE PUCK AWAY FROM HIM NOWWWW.
16:48: Penalty Killing is getting back on track…
16:20: Some Blues player got really close to getting a goal, but it went behind Turco and past the net. Thank goodness.
16:00: BRUNNSTROM IS ON THE ICE YAYYYYY
