Philadelphia @ Carolina
Pittsburgh @ Ottawa

Oh, Psycho? When can you attend the beating?

Give me a time, Mixie. A time for you to swallow some puck.

Bagga! BaggaBaggaBaggaBagga! Let's play some hookey, Baby!

Wednesday night do anything for ya? Thursday? We are in the same TZ

Washington @ Tampa Bay

Mr.Green, the 2-0 Caps have a date with defeat! When would you like to play? Any evening this week is do-able. Maybe you could play me from Swampy's place

Lock! When do you want to play? I'm pretty open, now. Today after 5:00 EST, Thursday after about 10:30 EST, Friday after 8:30 EST, or anytime over the weekend.

Just drive East by Southeast for a while, Green. My house is on the left.

Bagga is camping or somejunk, right? Or is he scaredy-fraid of playing the mighty Flyers?

Coldie, I can probably play this evening if you're available. Last I checked I'm supposed to play baseball at 6 or 6:30 pm PST. Shall we say 7:30 pm PST or is that too late?

Sounds good, Psycho. 10:30EST/7:30PST it is!

I can play tonight... how's 10:30 or 11 sound? Tomorrow would be fine as well.

I have baseball at 10 PM 1130 too late for your feminine rest requirements?

If so, 10:30 PM Thursday?

Bring it hoosier! Do they even have ice in Indy? I'm free after my 7 to 8 skating class. how's about 10 or 11 est?

Yeesh, let's go for thursday. Keeping this freakin' beautiful takes a lot of beauty sleep.

OK - I think I'm gonna cut the grass, so I can do almost any time after 9 Eastern Let me know.

Poppinfresh, let's shoot for 10:30 PM EST Thursday night.

The end of the world is nigh. I scraped past Psycho in OT. He totally dominated me in the first period -- though I score in the first 2 minutes -- with 14 more shots and 33% time in my offensive zone. I struggled to keep in it and almost lost heart when he tied it up late. A serious pileup in front of his net in a serious, bang-up ("rock-em, sock-em" in Psycho's accurate words) OT period saw the puck pop out on some Senator's (edit: Smolinski's) stick for the lucky win. Great playing, man.

Can do!

Edit: Actally, I'm playing baseball at 9:30 with Squirrelmonkey, so it's possible I could be late... We could either take a (say, 20%) chance that I'd be late to the game and play at 10:30, or play at 11 and pretty much know I'd be done. Whichever you'd rather.

Let's go for 11 then. That way I can get some practise in beforehand.

Bagga, 9:30 tonight (Thursady) OK? I can do almost any time after 7 Eastern.

That works for me, see you then.

It was a very good game. I'd call it great, but I didn't win. I had a good time nonetheless, though. Thanks for the chat.

I'm gonna go ahead and steal Swampy's thunder since he's taken so long to post this. Like some criminal can't wait or something. Anyway, yeah, he beat me last night.

But that's not all. I scored a goal. On myself. With my goalie. Let's just say that if your goalie catches the puck, do not exit the crease and try to pass it to your defenseman. Especially if he's standing in the goal for some odd reason. After that happened, Swampy was like "what just happened?" I sat in stunned silence for a good twenty seconds before I eeked out what I had just done. The numerous replays proved it. I think I just summarized my season, three games in. With one pass from my goalie.

**edit
Oh and Swampy, the reason I vaguely turned down your offer for football was because my wife proposed some "Alone Time" last night. I said "OK, after my hockey game." I think I was pushing my luck enough with that.

LockAndLoad and I had a pretty tense game last night. I gave up on trying to break down his defense and just went for shot quantity, while he seemed to go more for making the good plays. I squeaked it out, but that was quite a contest.

Mix and I have missed each other a couple of times. We'll get it in eventually. What's your availability this weekend, Mix?

Bagga, what can I say? The "own goal" was classic. I'm hurt though that we couldn't have started our football game and paused it, and let me ust listen in on the "alone time" via your headset.

Who knew incompetent goalies were an aphrodesiac to your wife?

I'm back! Look! I'm here!

Late nights are good Certis, well, except tonight. How 'bout Sunday 10pm ET son?

That would work just dandy, I play football with Warlock at 9 EST so I'll look for you after that.

Prepare for a drubbing, Capitals style!

I'm back! Look! I'm here!

Hello Green-san. I've got something on the go tonight and I can't guarentee I'll be back in time for 10PM EST. Any chance you could play 11PM EST?

If not, I'll do my best to make it on time but it's iffy.

I don't know if anyone noticed this -- or why the people in question haven't mentioned it -- but there's been a shutout recently. An ugly one. I'm not going to say any more aside from :shock:.

What the frick? I thought I posted about this right after the game? Come to think of it, I typed it out, hit my back button (on my mouse) by mistake and lost the post before I could submit. It probably felt it too painful to type it again

To paraphrase:

The Cinderella story has ended for the now 2 - 1 Washington Capitals after a crushing 6 - 0 defeat by the Lightening. Although the game stats were lightly in favor of the Caps the Lightening, in the words of their coach Mr.Green "Scored on nearly every scoring opportunity shot" while the Caps could not solve the riddle of how to score on Khabibulin after a whopping 44 shots on net. A hiccup on the road to greatness for the Capitals or simply the beginning of a long string of defeats? Only time will tell.

Yup, even though Certis outshot me 44-40, I still managed to beat the living s**t out of him! I swear his voice tone lowered after each goal. By the end of the game he sounded like Barry White.

You guys have no idea just how freakin good that feels.

To win? Yeah, welcome to the club; it's about time you joined. Though I don't win often, I do occasionally.
