QUOTA!!! Canada smoked Sverige 6-0. They finished the second period with two more goals – Rad Brad from Dumba and Scheifele, and Max Domi from Reinhart and Matheson. In the third, Mark Stone got an unassisted goal and Derick Brassard got one from Gallagher and Hall.

Rossija finished off Deutschland 4-1. Vadim Shipachyov got his second goal of the game late in the second period. The reinforcements got on the board in the third period, with Alex Ovechkin scoring from Kuznetsov and Lyubimov.

The playoff semifinals are on Saturday, May 21. Rossija will face Suomi and the USA will face Canada. It’ll be another 9:15AM ET start time for the first game (whichever it is) and a 1:15PM ET start time for the second game (whichever that is).

Morning, peeps.

BULLET POINTS:

  • Mandatory work fun was fun, but I definitely drank more than my fill of South African wine. We also had a lovely BBQ.
  • Met some people last night who I’ve only known by phone for years and they were lovely. Awkward for a bit, but it ended up being excellent.
  • We had a good not water game last night. IF you hang around at those events long enough for people to be drunk, they start popping open the bottles of good stuff. Was forced to chug some wine because I was told I needed to finish my glass so I could have some of this stuff we only get 24 bottles/year of. It was superb.
  • Nobody here is on their game today, it’s hilarious. Like I said, May has not been kind.
  • It has taken me way too long to write this. I had more to say but I’m going to end it here.

    Long time business relationships over the phone always different after you meet the person at the other end of the line. One already has an image established of the other and that image can be so wrong!
    I had a long time flirtation going with a sales rep when I worked for Sealed Air. We were both really looking forward to meeting. When it happened I could see the disappointment in her face as easily as she saw it in mine. It wasn’t that she wasn’t attractive. She was very attractive. We were just different and the first glance made it obvious to both of us. It was pretty funny even if disappointing at first.

    Hey All! More work today! I’m enjoying getting everything all spiffy here. If I spend a little more time on my garden than any of the others it’s okay.
    Just one game tonight. Last night the games moved pretty well. Good flow means I get my legs moving. There is nothing like the feeling of really flying on skates. I had to throw a hip check last night. A collision was unavoidable and I threw the hip automatically as protection. Oooops, I crushed the guy. Sometimes your the windshield, sometimes your the bug!
    I’m thinking one more cuppa is on tap.

    There are few things I love more than a good hip check.

    One time I laid the best hip check ever. Sadly it was a no check league and I was given two minors.

    Hip checks used to be part of my skillset.
    Now skating isn’t, so, uh…

    Kessel often reminds me of Ron Howard’s brother. I think his name is Mark.

    They just replaced a light above my desk. I usually like things dim. They most know this and picked the brightest replacement they could, because I swear my desk is glowing.

    Morning folks
    A couple of tales of hockey, work and life; starring me, CB18:

  • I’m warming to this idea of Pittsburgh winning because of Kessel, but boy do I just fucking hate them. Just so so much hate.
  • Dealing with a really bad alignment fault here at work yesterday & today. I got my manufacturing engineer involved: “We should leave it, it’s not directly in the print path” ugh, okay sure I guess, tolerance is 5 thousandths across 15 feet. I’m 16 thousandths across 16 inches but w/e. Out of my hands now
  • They started painting the bathrooms last night, but apparently they ran out of paint because an entire wall isn’t done & they did zero trim work. Seriously there is a 1″ gap around everything unpainted. Just goes to show you how we half ass EVERYTHING
  • Em finished a wedding cake order yesterday. She’s fucking good.

    Holy fuck Em's good pic.twitter.com/JONrQFxxcv

    I don’t know why, but I don’t find myself hating Kessel. I kind of forget about him most of the time.

    I don’t hate Kessel, it’s just Pittsburgh as an overall. Samuelsson, Cooke, the petulant whining over the years of Lemieux, Crosby. The ultimate tank job to get Lemieux. Lucking into Crosby. Just fuck Pittsburgh in the face with a crowbar.

    I love Mario. Maybe the best hockey player ever. Came back from Hodgkins to lead the league in scoring. Of course, that was the good hodgkins
    Other than Mario and Jr Mario, not a fan of Pittsburgh. Wait, Roberto Clemente. He was pretty cool, too.

    Mario is super whiny as an owner, but probably the most gifted offensive player ever.

    Wow. Even our shitty engineers wouldn’t let that go.

    Yeah, actual engineering stepped in and said no, but I had to make a small adjustment to the beam (not in the print path) so based on old process it would be okay. Turns out that because I did that it is exactly why I’m having this problem. Never mind the fact that when I put the adjustment back to original it gets worse…… Now I’m waiting for the ultimate decision, because we have two methods of aligning our beams. This is a cluster-fuck.

    A water main broke in front of our house last night. I heard a little commotion at ~3AM but didn’t check it out until I wanted to shower this morning and discovered that this morning’s fun bathing & brushing teeth time was canceled.
    There was quite a large pond with a bubbling fountain directly in front of the driveway which I had to traverse to get to the donut shop (so I could pee without wasting our precious ‘last flush’).

    On the bright side, I got to work a half hour early. roll

    I think the DPW guys would get a kick out of an inflatable duck (until it got too close to the backhoe).

    I’m hazarding a guess here cause I don’t recognize the buildings but I remember hearing that duckie made a home for a while in Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong.
