Last week someone mentioned that every EK65 highlight is a good highlight, and in honour of said player not getting in their game on Sunday, we’re literally littering the entire box scores with them. Unfortunately, there weren’t as many completed games as we’d like (or maybe it makes pasting in EK65 highlights easier with less official games/goals for Week 13…) so we’ll have some makeup games in the weeks to come!
(Okay these Karlsson highlights were actually more difficult to find than expected…thanks William for joining the VGK and making this tougher than a game of battleship where your friend moves the ships around after every guess…eggplant)
Fresh Kills 3 @ Pounds 2 (F/OT)
Fk’n eh – Jeff S (2), Ariel x2 (8)
Goalie Win – Patty B (6-2-1, GAA of Two Palffy’s)
Los Blancos – Caitlin “Tyler” Kennedy via AF, Jake C (3)
Goalie OT Loss – Zisser (7-2-2, GAA of One HOOOSSSSAAAA)
Game Notes Meaningless Hockey Jargon included to sound s-m-r-t: We all know Ariel would have won the game in a shootout anyways. Hope that extra ROW doesn’t come back to bite someone in the nether regions come playoff ranking time (what do you mean we don’t use ROW?)
Gabe Watch: Gabe was there. Frank and Tom were not.
MATH 2 @ SKY 3 (Final)
Math – Sam Norris (3), Adam L (3)
Goalie Loss – Liang (2-7, GAA of Four Henrik’s)
SKY – Caroline W (1), Greg I (3), James “Adam” McQ (7)
Goalie Win – Eitan via LemmeGoalie4u
Game Notes – New and Old from the Vandoos chip in and shut Math out from a late comeback.
GANK 1 @ FUZZ 2 (17:15 2nd Half)
‘Biters – B Probert (15)
Goalie of Record – Tim Bwn
Fuzz – Miles H x2 (13)
Goalie of Record – Coach
Gut Rot 1 @ DaPucks 6 (Final)
Gut Rot – Schmorggg (1)
Goalie Loss – Eddddd (3-6, GAA of Four Alfie’s)
CaNucks – Justin Southeast Division 4 NameSake Himself x2 (3), Brennan L (1), Dave MacC (1), Buffalo Zach (6), Birthday Girl Em! (2)
Goalie Win – Scott H (4-7, GAA of Three Kovalev’s)
Game Notes: In true homage to EK65 box score day, Hogg[ran]Wild with his 65:55 TOI, 2 apples, (note my Oxford comma) and 4 possums (those are what kids are calling “pluses” these days, Walker, get with the times). I totally just made that last part up, and this entire passage for the sake of the 5 or 6 Devils players in BTSH. But the assists were real, and Chadwick can update my “unofficial” and sarcastically incorrect tally to 4; leading the league as everyone else is officially at zero (you can thank Sam Norris for that).
Quick Shifts: Ed’s GAA continues to suffer when Becca isn’t incenticized to outperform AkhilNation, in their Gut Rot Bitzez step sibling like rivalry. Luckily, she has signed up for, and plans to participate in, no, not the Olympics, but team defense if the court is dry during future weeks. Olympics is this Sunday and that would make that joke like a year old (like the age of a certain CommissionHerrs’ whatsapp display pic) and outdated.
And that they did, as Ed and his Gut Rot Bitzez didn’t know what hit them (other than rain…and hangovers) on Sunday.
Riots 0 @ Mega 3 (Final)
Goalie Loss – Ben F (0-1, GAA of a Chara)
Mega – Shelly (3), Alok x2 (5)
Goalie Shutout Win – Mike T (3-7-1, 1st Shutout, GAA of Three Asham’s)
Game Notes: GdR did not get a loss on his goalie record, but his team sure did, as Alok had an emphatic goal late in the contest to seal the win.
Butchers 0 @ Hookers 1 (F/SO)
Goalie Shutout Shootout Loss (yes, that’s a thing) – Tim Brk (3-5-1, 2nd Shutout, GAA of Two Mogliny’s)
Goalie Shutout Win – Dustin “TOKARSKI” (4-3-2, 1st Shutout, GAA of a Duncan Keith)
Shootout Winner – Clark H
Game Notes: Note (probably redundant to “note” something under “game notes”, I know) that I found a Newnam like shootout finish just on FB’s gifs (Datsyukian backhand) and then Clark’s winner was no different than any Sedin snip over the pad and under the blocker. Still looking for a righty forsberg at kaner speed though. (Luckily you can find a pretty nice one posted by Walker in the BTSH fb group!)
Quick Shifts: Butchers are having a similar season as Demons in that they’ve been involved in a number of competitive, low scoring contests, and they’ve now turned the corner of sorts, pre-dating this game with a 3 game win streak, and now have points in their last 4 contests– since a humbling 6-love drubbing from the Gremmies (did you know that Walker wanted to play in the rain on Sunday? Never would have guessed). Two of those wins were against teams who were voted as best in the league in our power rankings (with the Butchers holding these opponents to 1 goal combined over those two games). The gap in Southeast 1 Division teams is clearly closer than it was last year. What was the other Southeast 1 Division team last year again?
Trending: Hookers literally and figuratively show up this time!
Poutine 1 @ Rainbows 1 (18~ 2nd Half)
Poutine – Brian “They call me BSA even though I’m not a Business Student Association” Sulli (3)
Goalie of Record – AJ F
Rainbows – Bryan L (5)
Goalie of Record – Grizzwald
Game Notes: Charlotte is a terrible person (and scored on her own net)
Filthier 2 @ Rehabs 0 (25:00 2nd Half)
Filthier – OP James (9), Ryan McL (1)
Goalie of Record – I guess it was Tim
Rehabs – Nada (Emily taught me some spanish on her birthday)
Goalie of Record – That guy with the Ho “Sang” jersey, probably
Karma @ Demons (PPD – Rain)
Rubens wanted to play. He also wants a certain joke to die after 2.5 weeks….wait for it…
Some BTSH jokes that may just stand the test of time…or at least, the “Common Era”
Gremlins at Cobra Kai (PPD – Monsoon fears)
Cobra Kai was lucky that the rain fears were real fears as they for some reason called up some guy with the worst GAA in Mofo (“DIVISION ONE ONLY”) in place of Campbell. That game note was just for Hector. And Hicks. Unfortunately it was related to 5,000 social media posts for them ago, combined (which equates to roughly 37 days) and they probably forget that reference. (I know, another Mofo reference, please don’t relieve me of my duties, we’re almost at the end of the season, which is 3~ months away)
Week 13 in Tweets
In honour of the rain and enjoying the outdoors we stayed social media free this week. See you Sunday!
