January 20, 2024

NUCKS WIN MOST IMPORTANT GAME IN THE UNIVERSE! On the MOST Important TV Broadcast!

Suck it up loser team, HNIC! Also...

Eat rocks leafs, refs and cotu.

Twitch

The ROG is Rockin' to start. As is tradition when the most important team in hockey faces that obscure #1 team in the league.

Nucks start hot and fast. Get the 1st goal of the game. From sniper-in-waiting, Hoagie. Get the 2nd goal of the game. From sniper-in-sniping, Hoagie - with a laser over the shoulder of former Nucks nemesis, Jones of North Van. Also... Nucks get the 3rd goal of the game. From Gnarlie zipping a Blueger pass right past Jones. 3-0 Nucks after 1.

sweet jesus garland is on fire
gets smushed, makes the pass to Höggy from his knees

and now gets a north-south bleugy pass to score from the dot
so well earned!

copey

Pretty good start... now we only have to get thru the HNIC extra-curriculars.

I wonder if we'll be able to see Ron Maclean's tears during the period break?

Twitch

We and the rest of the universe made it through the CoTU homer intermission - and we're ready for the 2nd period where the Nucks will push out for the 6-nothing lead.

Or not.

When 6'8" Myers screens Demko... well.. Nylinger scores. 3-1 Nucks.

No worries. Didn't expect to shutout the eleventeen million dollar CoTU winger. Altho... Nucks did keep Austin off the goal songs list.

However, 3 minutes later, Nucks don't cover the trailer and a slappy Leafy pass gets past Demmers. 3-2 Nucks. No worries. The Taco Tough Nucks love their one goal leads after 2.

But then... a minute later... the Nylthingie scores again... with an unneeded tip from Soucy. Gamethread are not worried.

WTF demmers... geezus.

Twitch

Zero tolerance for deflections tonight. Unless they're ours.

Taco takes his timeout. Bag skates the team for a full minute and calms them down. In the last minute of the period our 'just another 3rd line' goes out and does their chaos stuff - the right kind of chaos.

Garland with his second, 2 pts for hughes now too.

Twitch

Gnarly is having himself a big game and a very big goal. 4-3 Nucks.

No worries. Nucks leading after 2 is the stuff of league legends. Or NM legends. Can't remember which.

Doesn't matter. What matters is getting through the 2nd intermission without too much heaving from the CoTU praising the CoTU. And we did... and Juice got a little comment on the big play of Gnarly.

Nucks start the 3rd well. And so does Kuz. And gamethread is handing out roses, not thorns this shift.

Kuz with a great shift

Westy

Kuz with a great pass there... for naught, but draws a penalty.

Twitch

Nucks get on the PP and it's looking good. For Marner, who scoops a lazy Pete to Bess pass, breaks in on Demmers and scores. That's not the PP look we were looking for.

Pete is PO'd. On the next Nucks PP a few minutes later as the Leave-it-to-Crosschecking team is on another PK - Pete redeems the lazy pass, as he passes to Huggie. Huggie shoots the puck at JT's skate. JT's skate scores the GWG! 5-4 Nucks.

Nucks PP isn't finished. The deflection goal is the game theme song, for those with the weird deflective ears. This time it's Huggie to Miller. Miller's shot pass to Sneaky Pete. 6-4 Nucks with barely 10 minutes to play.

Of course as the Leaving and Losing in Lostcouver Leaves aren't getting the extra attacker goal - something must be done, Serge, something must be done! Refs have to step in and level the ice by tilting it. Twice over.

Bullshit penalty call that.

Twitch

6 on 4...refs like it

Westy

But wait! There's so much more to call. Against the Nucks.

What bullshit reffing...doing their best to keep the COTU overlords happy. 6 on 3

Twitch

Doesn't matter. Demko is playing like shutout Demmers. And shuts up the Leaves, refs and HNIC.

Demko was Vezina good that last half of the period. Just stopping frickin' everything. Stick no stick, off the mask, point blank saves one after the other. Awesome stuff.

copey

Nuck defeat CoTU 6-4 in the ROG! WOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

28 oh and 1 when leading after 2. The NM legend continues. Nucks remain #1 in the NHL!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

HIGH NOTES

Nucks PP went 2 for 3. Won the game, basically.

Nuck PK went 100% on the 5 Kills. Won the game, bascially.

1st Star: ROG crowd chanting: “Leafs Suck!” - Gnarland was the game's 1st star, but doesn't understand the Nucks/CoTU rivalry. Needs to spend a day with Kent.


ROG MAPLE LAFF WHIPPING REEL

It's Homer Night in CoTU coverage, so ready, steady and mute! Wishing for Shortie and Cheech? Yes!

TACO TALK

“We might have a bad period or a bad stretch but somehow we can hang in there. And that’s resiliency.” - Coach Taco


The Nucking best win yet on HNIC - especially so, with the HNIC panel stuck in the cold damp Victoria harbour trying to make good TV.

A great start to the afternoon game and an even better finish. How important was it? Let's find out.

How important was this win over the CoTU?

COMMENTS

Comment System How-To

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
