Lemon of De-Troy-t

For the past two days, @helmerroids and I have been discussing Red Wings hockey on Twitter using altered quotes from The Simpsons. Case in point:

It continued into today, and I finally got up the creative nerve to mash up The Simpsons episode "Lemon of Troy" with Red Wings hockey. Now, it's not going to be the episode in its entirety, but rather scenes that work with the Wings' situation right now.

This isn't supposed to make sense from scene to scene, though the characters stay the same. Just enjoy the nerdiness.

If you aren't a huge Simpsons nerd, you may not get much out of this. If you are and you love hockey...welcome, my new best friend(s). And enjoy "Lemon of De-Troy-t."

Chara the Brontosaurus

Puck Daddy had an accurate description of Sidney Crosby chirping at Zdeno Chara during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

It was so accurate and so hilarious that, despite it not being the Red Wings, I had to draw a silly doodle for it.

Nothing else really needs to be said at this point. Go Bruins.

Larry Murphy or...Drew Carey?

Ever since the season started and I saw Larry Murphy wearing those goggle glasses that had me screaming, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" at my television, I've had something on my mind. And it didn't hit me until a few days ago.

Larry Murphy looks like Drew Carey.

Please...just look.

Frightening, yes? Can we get back to the Murph we all know and love, who raves about $1 hot dogs and beer? This one just doesn't feel right.

Zetterberg's Flight to Detroit

If you haven't caught up on your hockey news today, Helene St. James caught up with Henrik Zetterberg today and did the usual interviewing questions. The article ends with:

"Speaking of Switzerland, did Zetterberg bring back Toblerone chocolates for his teammates? Yes ... and no.
"I ate them all," he said."

How can I not draw a silly comic? Don't mind the fact that it's on a legal pad. (click to make bigger)

And, as @Whoabot added on Twitter: "Dammit Hank, where's my Swiss chocolate candy?!"
"Get your Tobler-own!! (laughter ensues) ...seriously, it's mine, go away."

It's not unlike Larry Murphy at home, surrounded by hot dogs...
