Better than aaaaaaall the rest…… except Marian Gaboriiiiiik” —Tina Turner
Well, kiss my grits! The Oil have the second star in the league this week.
Is his name Chris Pronger? No, don’t see him on the list. Is his name Mike Comrie? No, don’t see him on the list. Is his name Mike Peca? No, don’t see him on the list. Is his name Brian Burke? No, he isn’t on the list either, the fat bastard.
It's Mathieu Garon, and he's keeping it oh so fresh with a 3-0-0 record, 1.01 goals-against average and .968 save percentage. Is it really true that Garon has three shutouts this season? Why in the sweet holy hell would LA give this guy up? Is Labarbera really that good that they could afford to pitch Garon? (Answer: No.)
Let's hope that Garon gets to start against his former club tonight, as the Oil are looking for their fifth straight win. For Garon, beating LA after being named second star would be like another hit of meth to Britney Spears: deeply satisfying.
We know the burning question on everyone’s mind—if the Nation has a four-wins-in-a-row gun, what do we have for a five-win weapon?
Wait until tomorrow nation, wait until tomorrow. Think more fire power, lots of moving parts and a satellite tracking system.
Predicted score: Oilers 6 Kings 2
