They're looking Beardy out there.

Welcome to an impromptu meeting of the Nervoustime gang to Ste Anne, Manitoba!!

Present tonight, Vanessa, Rebecca, Jen, Smoko(the dog), and Thunder and Francis (the cats).

Shout out to Darcy at work, Kendra at home (who sadly had to cancel her visit), Eric in the air and all other nervoustime members with busy, busy lives.

Almost 5 minutes in the first period without a whistle. Maybe this will be a fast game. We've started late so are watching a little behind time. AS soon as we catch up we'll be making homemade pizzas. Seems like pizzas happen often when I invite people over to the house.

Come guys. Hutchinson is in the net. No need for all the defensemen to also be in the net. Vanessa gets really pissed off when players try to sell being hit. Players at this level should not let this be a part of the game.

Vandevelde scores. Not liking the chaos of the Jets defence so far.

Andrew Ladd certainly is getting pretty beardy. Nothing on Thorburn's beard though.

Sweet rebound as Mathieu Perreault ties it up!!

Watching the Safeway Goal and win contest we are reminding that thanks to Mathieu someone was one goal away from winning a million dollars not so long ago. I feel like her first name was Gail. there we go. Gail Macdonald from Brandon.

Let's talk about how great Chris Thorburn has been doing. 3 goals in the last 3 games. I'd say that his was the best line in the game against Pittsburg on Tuesday.

Power play for Philly. Could have sworn the announcer just said 2 minutes for interference but no. It is of course interference.

Great save Hutch, with 2 guys in your net. Probably couldn't even fit a puck in there.

Mention of the all-Star game. We are all in agreement that it was the most boring game of hockey we've ever watched. Although I was trying to learn a new crochet technique for a border on a baby sweater so that was probably quite helpful.

Wayne Simmons scores. I have never liked that guy. He's just always been a really dirty net player in my opinion.

Jets powerplay!!! Goal Pereault. Apparently we haven't scored a powerplay goal since he's been gone. We sure are happy he's back.

Period 2 no purpose.

The pizza distracted us mostly till now. 6 minutes left in the second. Just witnessed some Hutchison Gold on this recent penalty kill.

It appears that Pavelac has put his laces back in. Very interesting. Whenever Pavelac is winning and not saving like a mad man, I like to shout, "Laces out Pavs, laces out." As support. What will I do now?

We all may have just had a sing along in Buff's honour. "Every day I'm Byfuglien"
I like when he passes the puck in front of Philliy's bench so they have to wait a couple more seconds to change shifts.

Third period.

If you know me you know I wear a Sweatshirt that has a bright orange crest on the left that says loser. I find that often when I wear a combination of my loser sweatshirt and Jets Jersey at the home games, we win. Vanessa suggests it's my superman Clark Kent Combo.

Shoot. That was a gorgeous goal. alone in the slot. You really should never miss those.Way to Schenn. Fuck.

Michael Hutchison saves the day and a big Buff moment. The fire is there. 14:37 left. A lot of nervoustime here.

13:07 very aggressive penalty kill by Philly. Gosh when is the last time Wheeler, Little of Ladd scored a goal?

2:28 and we're happy to see Perreault is still out there.  Empty net. Damn. Another empty net goal.

I feel like it would be a better ending at least if we could use this 1:21 to score a goal.

Just realized it's our old goalie in net for the flyers. Ok. Game over. Oh no. Sorry it's Steve Mason. Never heard of him.

Good night from Ste. Anne.

Wait hold on. If I drop Denis Beyack's name people will thin I'm freinds with a god. Free shit here we come.

happy new year: winter classic 2015

blackhawks vs. capitals, happy new year everyone from ruby. the crew is slowly arriving and we have an incredible variety of cheese related foods to eat - jen made a cheese ball, there is a brie/cranberry mix and for the lactose intolerant there is a vegan cream cheese based bean dip.

we realize while we would regularly cheer for the blackhawks cheering for washington would be better as a jet fan. discussion of what a blackhawks jets playoff series could be like, 'could you imagine patrick kane in the city that much?"

did anyone party with the new york islanders last night?

no score and once again the question 'does this game count' was asked.  we are checking the's seven degrees, extended forecast - on sunday it will be 15!

eric has arrived and washington just scored. eric fehr!

does this game count was asked again and karla and megan has arrived. 'i love that guy' - vanessa on ovechkin. shoutout to reuben and lois in courtsite, arizona.

discussion of google plus. or circles or whatever and washington scored again. still the first period.

power play

 and the hawks are on the board. assist by patrick kane and we are pleased to announce that patrick kane is now on our fantasy hockey team! we traded nathan mackinnon and our first round pick for next year but it was worth it.

we would like to have a hockey rink in the empty lot and preston and arlington and for next year have arlington host the winter classic.

jamie begins chanting 'crosby's better'

patrick kane apparently arrived listening to the rick ross song 'big homie" . (none of us have heard this song but we will listen to it laer).

apparently puff daddy is on that song though and tracey begins playing it. we don't like this song and are each making mix cds for patrick kane. karla's will start and end with 'call me maybe'

washington penalty.

don cherry's advice for the year ' love your stick'

jen and becca like dc's suit. karla 'there are no good suits when worn by don cherry'

who is this playing music, nobody knows.....we can't look it up because we are behind in the game and not able to check our phones., one guy in this band has the same touque as me (or beanie as michael would say - hey michael!).

eric ' day time fireworks are a waste of fireworks'

rebecca 'there are so many things wrong with this game. it's too warm, fireworks in the day time, who is this band'

next year apparently we get the heritage classic and the we are planning out dream classic- six am, your parents drive you, (s o here are fireworks because it is sill dark) you can bring your own mug.

karla brings a tray of meatballs and serves us each individually. eric 'I've can say i've never had a bad meatball'

Jen Funk now blogging. Did you know that at the annual winter classic Winkworth fiesta whomever blogs also gets the best seat on the couch. Here's a holiday problem. There is too much delicious food on the table and we are all quite full.

Reb here now. Lots of discussion right now about the World Junior championship. Just realized that tomorrow is Friday. Darn I thought I had one more day to do less.

Discussion around vegemite and what the hell is mincemeat anyway. Back when there used to be suet in everything, ya know. Other weird things we've eaten.

"I'm done trying new things" - Darcy's 2015 resolution.

Dad (Greg) is getting Smoko some booties. She's hiding under the TV table but you're not invisible Smoko. We all see you.

"They need to stop moving that camera around', Eric (who didn't drink last night).

So far, it's been 6 minutes and Smoko has only 3 booties on.

Booty fashion show!

"Thanks for the pretzel socks, Rebecca". I never gave him socks. "Well, you're getting credit for the socks." If any of our readers have lost some pretzel socks, Eric has 'em.

Smoko went out to try her booties and even though we're so excited for her, she's happy to have them off.

2:2 tie game if anyone is interested. The video work is pretty lame. Are they using hand-held cameras?! Everyone likes the toques though.

Jaime has an idea for a xmas holder decoration but that makes Kendra and I very nervous.

We're very upset about the WFP Year in Review quiz. Where is Mr. Michaelchyshen?! This year's quiz is by Bart Kives and it looks like multiple choice. WTF WFP?!

Versteeg looks uncomfortable. Getting consoled by his teammates.

Chicago has more love to give than Montreal. As a team, at least.

"Don't put your hand down there between those pillows", warning from Vanessa.

Now Smoko is having her paws tickled.

Rave reviews of Winnipeg's Cat Alert Lady, "quite the lady", according to Karla.

REF CAM! who thought of That ?

9 Minutes left in the third and everyones really happy that Darcey's finally agreed to take some leftovers to work.  Also, at nine minutes remaining it seems the game could go either way....two very dangerous teams for sure.   Megan announces that she doesn't want to offend anyone, but owning a house adjacent to someone in her family is NOT something she would do......what if her raspberry bushes became unruly ? 

five minutes left and we are caught up to the actual time - 2-2 is the score. i'm quite sure this will go to a shootout and we will get to see patrick kane at his best. karla is proudy wearing her carey price earnings.

discussion of pillows. attachment appears strong.

washington powerplay and jonathan toews is upset.

broken stick but a goal anyways.

capitals win which is good for jets fans, they all shake hands, we would like that at all games.

happy new year love nervoustime
