That shorty by Sheldon shut them up. Who is this kid? Very fast with a nose for the net.


Dries has had a great playoffs, and has probably earned some fourth line NHL minutes somewhere.

I can't wait for this Calder Cup to end. Every time I fire up Twitter, all I'm doing is scrolling past 100 *fargin'* tweets about the AHL. I don't go to Twitter for AHL play by play. I go to Twitter for breaking news, dick jokes, and hit chicks.

Maybe what I really need to do is stop following five Stars reporters who are all blasting out the same info in unison. The Twitter echo from these guys is becoming unbearable.

There's no way there are 5 people covering the Stars. It's three at the most.

I have Heika, Mark, Sevy, and the Dallas Stars official feed all tweeting identical info. Then there is Shapiro from the Athletic over analyzing every shift taken by a bunch of dudes who will never play in the NHL. Mix in those guys all retweeting *poo poo*, and you have hundreds of tweets for each AHL game.

If I could describe my frustration about this in one word it would be "mammoth-strewn".

You do know you can mute certain words or phrases on Twitter, right? Even if you don't want to mute the person.

Shapiro is at least interesting, writing about stuff no one else does. You could safely nix all those others guys and not miss a single *Dang ol'* thing.

No, I wasn't aware of this. Holy crap. Problem solved. Thanks!

So I'll mute Calder. Can't really mute Texas or Stars. Guess I could add Cedar Park.

True. There was a time when they'd break different stories, but now all it became was three accounts all posting the lines from warmups one after the other. I never followed Burnside because I never saw him share anything I didn't already know.

They are who we didn’t even care enough to figure out who they were.

Prolly pretty lucky to make it all the way to game 7 w/one veteran line and a veteran goalie.

Sorry Cody. At least it was a good game until late.

:gulp

And once again Scarlett was brutal.

And LOL only one penalty called all game (against the Stars).
The refs weren't calling shiiiiit for Game 7 and it was awesome.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.
