IIIiteracy: 8 June 2013

A recap of tonight’s Conference III playoff action with help from the geniuses at SportsYapper:

Chicago 4, Los Angeles 3 (2OT): We start with some bold thinking on Chicago’s goaltending.

All Chicago early with a welcome-back goal from Duncan Keith and a I’m-still-relevant goal from Mr Patty Kane. Nice assist from Our Man Rosie.

Anyway, the fast open has ’em looking to the next round and Bostonians dropping by to say hi.

MY FRENTS DA TOOKER RASK CANNOT KEEP UP DA NINE HUNDRET AIDY PLUS SAFE PERCENT.

It’s halfway through the first and we are doing full-on Stanley Cup Final analysis.

And, guys, “impossible” is a word Boston does not know. “Their” and “they’re” are words Anthony does not know. What?

For those of you determining winners by mascot, here’s two important notes.

Hey, hey Dwight King shorthanded.

Up three games to one and up 2-1 late in the second, the analysis get trenchant. And early in the third, Anze Kopitar finally found the score sheet on the power play and we’re all tied up. Only answer: “consperisy.”

Common hawks:

Shaw draws a cross-check from whichever Green or Greene plays for LA and the folks in Chicago think it should have been four, but it’s not because the cross-check rule doesn’t allow for a double-minor.

And after a suspect no-call, it’s Bingo to Mr Patty Kane and Chicago retakes the lead with less than four minutes remaining.

Hey, an Avs fan for some reason!

And my oh my, the Kings tie it up with less than 10 seconds remaining. People should have watched the Leafs-Bruins series.

Couple of nice chances early for Chicago early in OT, but then they kind of looked lost for a little bit.

AND THE YAPPER GOES DOWN. OH THANK GOD IT’S BACK.

When double OT starts, people get terrible ideas. Probably just the booze. “Darren Peng” had some analysis of Chicago’s third goal which was upsetting.

YAP CONSPERISY!

A trick for Mr Patty Kane and this one’s over in double OT.

And Chicago-Boston, as you’ll hear 1,979 times before Wednesday is the first Original Six Stanley Cup Final since 1979 (growing the game to new places is important, so we’ll have emphasize teams that were in the league more than 40 years ago; kids love that stuff).
