Boston Sports Tonight!

Bruins v. Flames, 9:00 pm. The Bruins head to Calgary for the final game of this road trip to face bad-ass netminder Miikka Kiprusoff and pretty-boy/lover of Sean Avery's sloppy seconds Dion Phaneuf. No word yet on whether the Red Mile and its infamous bare-tittied ladies will be out celebrating if the Flames win tonight. Shirts off for Kiprusoff, gals! There's a loonie in it for ya.

It's too early in the season to start flipping out about division standings, but it's worth noting that a win tonight will bring us into a tie for first place with Montreal Buffalo. So, like, yay for that.

Frivolous wager of the night: Jack Edwards' gleeful shout of "AHHH, SUPERMAN!" during a more spectacular Tim Thomas save against Edmonton the other night has already garnered some notoriety. With Thomas in the net again tonight, here are the odds on what Edwards could be yelling:

"Ahhh, Batman!" 50:1
"Ahhh, Bananaman!" 200:1
"Ahhhhhhhhhndy!" 20:1
"Ahhh, stick a fork in it!" 5:1
"Ahhh [quote from abolitionist hymn and/or poem]!" 100:1
"Ahhh, I think I'm having a heart attack!" 2:1

Serious prediction of the night: There are two players on the ice tonight who are on fire (HAHA GET IT) right now: Flames captain Jarome Iginla, and Bruins goalie Tim Thomas. It'll come down to defensive pressure on Iginla, who's already had 2 6-shot games this season, to keep him from wearing out Thomas. That said, the Flames have gotten their asses kicked twice by the Canucks (one 1-6 loss, one 0-6 shutout... what the fuck is Kiprusoff doing with himself?!) and I say we beat 'em, 4-2.

We're already in a tie with Montreal, dearie. For second. A win will leapfrog us into first over Buffalo.

I've caught some of a couple of games so far, and the Bs look a lot sharper than early-season hockey teams usually look. They seem to be playing decently well together already, which is a good sign for the future.

Also, I am still alive. Just an FYI.

A classy gal like you at least holds out for a two-nie or some that paper cash.

"Down the River" = 1:100,000

"Blows a tire" = 1:50,000

Any Reference to Sir Isaac Newton = 1:100

"TimmAYYY" (in the South Park Character's voice) = 200:1

Good call on "down the river." I'd say the odds on that are much more likely.

Man, I want to attend a Bruins game, I've never been to a non-high school sporting event. The closest NHL city to me is Dallas, and that's like six hours, and Boston doesn't visit the Stars this season.

Hoping I can go to Celtics-Spurs in March.

On another note, way to go NFL, scheduling the Patriots on the same Thursday night the Bruins play Montreal. Fuckers. Now I have to decide what to watch on my night off.
