It Comes Down To This!!
Lets start with a moment of silence or prayer for those who lost their lives on this date in 2001. God rest their souls.
Good Morning hockey fans. Thanks for coming out last night. The fan reaction was electric.
The first game of the showcase was Green Goddess battled it out wit Quick Dam. The Quick Dam machine keeps rolling. This one could have gotten out of hand early, but someone missed the net. Neil SMH. Actually, Shawn Smith took care of the goal scoring midway through the first. In the second, Scott Webber got QD out in front a bit more with the help of the Maple Woods Rock God, Rich Dias. In fact there were 2 rock stars out on the ice at the same time. Mike Dussault was in net for the Quick Dam. Shawn Smith put the puck upstairs and stretched the lead to 3 for quick dam off a rebound by Neil Foley and a pass by Andy Morrison. The Goddess was not dead yet. Peter Meegan bulled his way and his will to get Goddes on the board, with help from Rob Edleman. 2 Minutes ticked off and Anthony Lisi put it home from Larry Lafbrefgoeaarlelsdff. Another minute goes by and here we go, Edleman put one in of his own! We got ourselves a game. The jubilation did not last for the Goddess as Shawn Smith got a late second period goal. That's all she wrote. Third period was back and forth, but nothing. Rock Star Moment. Maple Woods features Loose Screws with our friend Rich Dias. But wait there's more, Mike Dussault leads Wicked Road at Copperfields tonight at 8 (Johnston). So depending on what part of the world you are in, go check them out.
I would like to just start this part with a little story. It's a story of a man by himself in his parents basement. A strange sound was coming from the drop ceiling. What could it be? A mouse? A rat? HMM? We need an expert. In comes our assumed hero Eric Campbell. Well there it was, this gigantic sparrow. Adam Babikian sprung into action and got the bird out the door. Phew that was close. Now onto our game. Adam the Birdman Babikian would spring into action again. He would put Edge Doctor out in front by 2 goals in a row. One could have been a one timer from a great pass by Rick Vasconcelos. (VAS-CON-SEL-OHS). He would get the next one from a pass from behind the net right on the tape. And yes PaPa that was a one timer. Manville would answer the bell and get one late in the period. Ben Dussault and his Uncle have the same handwriting. I think Ben actually is a bit more legible. In any case Rich LaPlante put the Manville Palace Pizza on the board, with help from Ben's Dad Dan Dussault. Real family affair at the rink last night. 3 generations of Dussault in the house. In the Second, MPP tied the score early, one of the subs got a goal from Greg Landry. I think it was Steve something or other. Anyway he would get another for them and all of a sudden MPP is in the lead. The See Saw tilted like the fat kid got on and Edge Doctor would get 2 unanswered in the second by Kreg Labelle and that would be all they needed. Late in the third the Edge put a exclamation point on the win. 5-3.
The Late game had all kinds of playoff implications. If Final Touch could manage a win, they would put themselves in good shape for second place, with MPP only 2 points ahead and the Bye next week. very fever pitched to get this one done. Vescera would want to play spoiler. And it looked early like they would. Sean Forrant from Iggy Gozman would get the Law on the board early. A minute later, Ed Cardoso would set up Kevin Schleicher and put it passed. And all of a sudden it was 2-0. Well that would not last as The Touch Would pull their heads out of their collective asses and score 10 unanswered goals. Jerry Fahey would be a huge asset and get a hat trick and the game winning goal. All before the end of the first. Our hero, Jaramir Chris Pilot Burkle, would also get a hat trick in this one before it was over. Notably, our captain put one in off a beauty pass and tip play. Also, we got some real fun goals by Shooter, White Gloves and Gary with the staple shot at the end. But he was bowling earlier and got a 243 or something. So full of piss and vinegar. Oh and Shannon got 4 points in this one as well. 10-2 in the end.
Great night of hockey everyone. Hope you all had fun.
If you read this entire article you are here. Please come out and support your local friends bands. Maple Woods campgrounds Featuring Rich Dias and Loose Screws at 7pm. Or if you are in Rhode Island, Mike Dussault and Wicked Rhode are at Copperfields at 8pm.
Business PSA. I hope you are all paid up. If not get your money to the league.
Playoffs are in 2 weeks. Looks like Quick Dam has locked up the number one position. Final Touch may have the second spot sewed up with MPP on the bye next week. But not sure what the rules are, because some hacker erased them. I think it goes wins then head to head. So, if it is games won, Then it is sewed up. Which puts MPP in third (or maybe second) still not sure. Also, The Goddess vs. Edge Doctor is a big game, putting one or the other in forth. Votta could have a sniff at 5th. Vescera is in the drivers seat for an upset.
Looking forward to the playoffs. It's going to be great.
Have a great week.
Live, Breathe, Love..........................Hockey!!!
