Are you guys ready for the home opener, round two? I missed the game on Tuesday, so as far as I’m concerned, tonight is the real home opener. I heard it was pretty loud against the Blues, that the playoff atmosphere carried over. I’ll be expecting the same tonight against the Dallas Stars. You better give it to me, I’ll have my beating stick with me (otherwise known as my dick, Mephisto) and I will be serving up lashings for those who thinks it’s OK to let off on the volume and insanity just because there won’t be 20 minutes worth of tedious player introductions.

What about the Stars? No idea, I’m a busy man and haven’t payed a whole lot of attention to the rest of the league yet. That will change soon, but for now, I’ll just go with the tried and true “Kari Lehtonen is overhyped trash”… Lehtonen is still their goalie, right? I know Jamie Benn is still around, but that guy looks like he belongs in the Gap model reject line. I think I knew a guy that looked like him in high school. That guy is now a drug addict.

Quick is back in net, looking to go 3 for 0, or 0 for 3, however the hell you want to look at it. He’s on fire and if he keeps this play up, Bernier should practice shining Quick’s skate blades.

Kopitar looks to extend his point streak to 6 games. If this guy doesn’t get heralded this year as one of the top 5 centers in the league, well, let’s just say Mephisto will be involved and it won’t be pretty.

Can you tell I’m pent up? I ignored the pain of missing Tuesday’s game all week. Wrote it off. Pfft, big deal, I can miss a game, I’m a big boy. I can’t live a lie any longer, and if I had a heart, it would go out to any Dallas fans that have the misfortune of sitting near me tonight. They will not be having a peaceful evening. If they are smart, they’ll bring earplugs. I’ll mess with Texas as much as I damn well please. They deserve it.

As you may have noticed, I don’t have much to say about the game. I just want to see the damn thing.

Ladies and gentlemen, lend me your ears. If you are at Staples tonight, you don’t really have a choice.


**Update**. I read that Andrew Raycroft will start for Dallas. This does not in any way discount my feelings on Lehtonen and his overhyped trashiness.
