Today in Conference III action through the geniuses at SportsYapper:
Chicago 5, Colorado 2 : Gang, we are just yapping around here, but Chicago? Chicago yaps hard. Chicago is the Blackhawks of yapping. Don’t come into Chicago’s yap zone and try to yap about non-yap subjects or you will get yapped across the face. The Hawks scored a handful as noted by this fresh reference, earning a win for Ray Emery who is, lest you forget, the Hawks’ second choice.
Dallas 4, Calgary 3: Calgary still can’t win away from Calgary, even when they are in Dallas, the Calgary of Texas. On a night when J.R. Ewing’s will trolled the heck out of his whole damn family — and who here doesn’t think that J.R. Ewing wasn’t a Conference III fan, being as how he basically invented the concept of Threeness? — a Flames fan asks an important question. No, Janine, we weren’t, because Dallas was on. Scoring for the Stars: Cole, Nystrom and Loui “Where’s The Rest Of My First Name” Eriksson. This guy was wrong.
Minnesota 3, Vancouver 1 : The Wild secured first place all by their lonesome in their last year in the Northwest and Also Minnesota and Even Weirder Colorado For Some Reason Division. Minnesotans thought it was a defensive game (we think?). And Vancouverians aren’t so sure about Garrison.
