Tuesday Tid-bits ( not to be confused with TimBits )


All good things must come to an end – which does not explain why the Montreal Canadiens‘ season will conclude three games from now …

Add Carey Price to the list of concusses and you have a Montreal club that will lead the league in man games lost to injury ( Good thing Kaberle is not a man or it would be more).No excuses yet one must wonder a little bit if the Canadiens remained healthy , would Gauthier still be sitting at his bleu , blanc et rouge desk in Vermont instead of the oaken one he is hiding under ?

Enough about ghosts…

In Tampa last night – Alex Ovechkin was outplayed once more by another team’s sniper. This time it was Steve Stamkos who out – rushed the Russian. Stamkos netted his 57th and 58th goal of the season as the Bolts zapped the Capitals chances of nailing down the eight and final playoff spot in the East for another game or two. Since Ovechkin is best buddies with Markov – wouldn’t it be nice to see Alexander the Great resurrect his career in Montreal ? Just sayin …

Following the fiasco in Philly , Dan Bylsma‘s gotta be a bit worried if the Flyers and Pens meet in the playoffs.

First – Mike Milbury said that Bylsma should ‘ lift up his skirt ‘ and go after Philly coach Laviolette . Second – the Flyers’are kinda mad that Briere is out of the line – up , possibly for the beginning of the first round thanks to a last minute hit by Vitale. Sid the Kid would be the prime target of the Flyers , especially if Mike Milbury’s words are heard ;

“So you know, Crosby gets cross-checked, big whoop. He said after he came back from his 35th concussion, ‘I’m not going to do this anymore, I’m not going to get into this scrums, I’m going to stay away from that stuff.’ He couldn’t help himself because there’s a little punk in Crosby. He’s not the perfect gentleman. He’s not the sweet kid you see in interviews with his hat pulled down over his eyes. I’d say screw him, hit him,

” How old is Milbury and can he still skate …?” The Flyers must be wondering …

If the Florida Panthers beat the Jets on Tuesday , they can clinch a playoff spot for the first time since 2000. Lucky for the Panthers and their fans – Jeffrey Loria and David Samson can be tossed on the ice like the big rats they are …

Heard from a friend dep’t ; Dion Phaneuf was vacationing with girlfriend Elissa Cuthbert last year(must have been early April ) in Cancun. My buddy started talking to Cuthbert about Montreal since she is from the city. The pair were laughing and joking when Phaneuf got a little into my pal’s face ; ” Do you know who I am … And who are you ?” Screamed Phaneuf. ” I make more money than everyone here !” It did not take long before Phaneuf was asked to leave . No word if my buddy got sloppy seconds …
