End of Days! Habs leapfrog Bruins & Wings into the Playoffs

Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop is knocked into the net as P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens scores a goal in a 5-4 victory at Amalie Arena on March 31, 2016.

EDIT: This article was written as an April fool’s day prank. Information found in this article should not be taken as factually accurate.

Last night, the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning, bringing them to 88 points on the season. With tiebreakers, (equal ROW, better point differential and head to head) that puts them ahead of the Bruins, and into the playoff structure as the 3rd seed in the Atlantic division. After the tight race between the Wings & the B’s grabbing everyone’s attention, the Habs’ resurgence snuck up on both teams.

With the Islanders at 93 points, and the Flyers at 89, that keeps those two teams buried as deep into the wildcard spots as ticks on a dog, pushing the Bruins and Red Wings completely out of any playoff spots.

This places the Bruins in a terrible position – they essentially have to win 5 games straight, as they now have to out-play the Habs as well as the Red Wings. Odds of them making the playoffs have now dropped to a depressing 36.4%

This led to a localized confrontation between fans and police in Kenmore Square in Boston, as local bars emptied out after last call.

It sounds like there were no serious injuries, but there was property damage to some parked vehicles, and more than a few people got to spend a night in the poky.

I just don’t know what to say. Get it together, Bruins!

Boston are now officially, contractually the Gryzzley Bears:

BU senior D Matt Grzelcyk has signed a two-year entry-level contract with BOS. He was BOS 3rd round pick in 2012.

Assuming hes either staying at school to finish his degree or going on an ATO, there is still some contract slots. (we missed out on Brandon Tanev to the Jerts, but Ahti Oksanen is still there….)

Theres an AHLer, Harry Zolniercyk (give or take a few dozen letters) who uses his last names’ scrabble score as his number, which is pretty clever

Why yes, I did just have to actually look up what the score would be.

Ugh. Of course it is. I did one of those things ages ago when me and my bf went to Vegas. We were told “No pressure” and then the “Exit Interview” guy really laid on the pressure. It sucked. Sorry it wasn’t what you anticipated.

Meh.

The only thing I was upset about is that I didn’t trust my gut from the start. I knew something was fishy, but for some reason didn’t just tell her to pound sand from the start. At least we’ve wasted nothing except 5-10 minutes of time on the phone.

Yup, I did one…. one. It was a fun weekend – until the “presentation”. I was waiting for the torture devices to come out before it was over. When it was over – THEY WERE PISSED OFF!!!!!! I laughed, but really, what a bunch of jerks.

LOOKING FOR HOUSING WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU WILL BE WORKING IN TWO MONTHS IS FUCKING STRESSFUL AND IT IS ADDITIONALLY STRESSFUL WHEN YOUR GIRLFRIEND MOVES TO GOD KNOWS WHERE IN AUGUST.

No dice on that job opportunity even after 704 interviews?

No bueno, buddy. Hopefully it’ll all figure itself out.

The job in Greensboro was a no go, but they suggested I apply to a better paying in Raleigh. Greensboro is 40 minutes from my current residence and Raleigh is one hour and 45 minutes. The cool thing about the Raleigh job is that the office is one mile from where the Canes play. I’ve been parking for free in their lots for years.

I applied to two jobs in Winston Salem this week. I’ll spend two hours this weekend looking for other opportunities.
