6.13.15 SC Playoff Recap (Hijinks! Shenanigans! Stress Vomiting!)

Last night was one of those games where I had to get tipsy before it even started so that I didn’t stress vomit at puck drop. I can’t even imagine the mess I’ll be when the Stars are in the same situation. I have to apologize for the lackluster recap, as I’m still recovering from my exhausting day yesterday.

6.10.15 SC Final Recap (HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS, PEOPLE)

SC Final Game Recap (I’m Not a Jinx They’d Already Lost)

I know I know another recap from MERRIN where the BLACKHAWKS LOST but look they’d already lost when we decided I should do the recap so you know whatever, right?

I’m pretty sure the hockey gods knew Carolyn was gonna make me do this.

LOOK DON’T BLAME THE MESSENGER I’M A VICTIM HERE TOO. (A victim of what, you ask? The Lightning being the Stars East. We’re all a victim of that.)

6.6 SC Final Recap (Listen, No One Promised a Sweep)

Let’s clear something up really quick, lest you get the wrong idea. The Hawks aren’t fated to win when I’m in charge of the recaps, it’s just that when Merrin is on the schedule, they always lose. Besides, 1-1 is nothing to the Hawks (and we all kind of like the Lightning anyway. Seriously though, is there anyone who doesn’t like them? They’re young, adorable, play good, fast hockey…do you hate puppies too? What kind of a monster are you?)

Final Score: Hawks 3 – Bolts 4

6.3.15 SC Final Recap (Well, That Escalated Quickly)

I always love the first game in any series because while the stakes are high, no matter the outcome, both teams have a legitimate shot at the title. During the first game, I can actually enjoy hockey and life in general. It’s all just downhill from there.

Blackhawks v Lightning
Final Score: Hawks 2 – Bolts 1
Series: Hawks 1 – Bolts 0

Stars Season Breakdown (And I Don’t Mean The Mental Kind) Part 4

Alright it’s time for the 4th and final installment of the Stars Season Breakdown (though an argument can really be made that this is the mental kind). We’re taking a look at the goalies who were with us through the good times and the bad. The highs and the lows. So, so many lows.

If you haven’t read Part 1 (top 7 forwards), Part 2 (bottom 7 forwards), or Part 3 (defense), click those links.

5.25.15 SC Playoffs Game Recap (Biblical Level Flooding)

So I’ll be honest folks. Yesterday I drove home from Houston in what should have been PLENTY of time to watch the stupid game, except there were massive thunderstorms in south Texas and a 2 ½ hour drive ended up taking more than 6. (Check my twitter for real time freaking out.)

By the time I got home, I couldn’t handle watching OT. Which ended up being FINE because there was only like 45 seconds of it anyway.

Blackhawks vs D*cks
Final score: Blackhawks 4 – D*cks 5
Series: Blackhawks 2 – D*cks 3

5.25.15 SC Playoffs Recap (Of Course There Was No OT When We Can Sleep In on a Monday)

It’s Memorial Day! I hope everyone is able to actually do things like go to parades to honor our brave servicemen and women, because here in Texas, we’re having pretty much the worst weather. (Tornado watch until 4pm!) If you’re Canadian, well, I hope your Monday’s going alright.
