NHL Stanley Cup Playoff’s Update

Here is a little break down for all of you that haven’t been following the NHL Stanley Cup, it looks like the all might kings are going to bring the cup home tonight. We will see.

Goalies: Kings’ Jonathan Quick (15-2 1.36 goals-against average, .950 save percentage) vs. Devils’ Martin Brodeur (12-8, 2.09, .919). Brodeur is fine, but Quick has an aura of invincibility right now.

Who’s hot: Kings Ds Matt Greene and Willie Mitchell are the lead horses on a penalty killing group that is 64-for-69 (92.8%) on the penalty kill.

Who’s not: The Devils power play is 0-for-12 in the series, and it failed on a crucial 5-on-3 in the first period of Game 3. It was the turning point of the game.

Story lines to follow: Coach Peter DeBoer is considering whether to reinsert Petr Sykora into the lineup. …Devils defenseman Henrik Tallinder, out since January because of a blood clot, also is ready to play if DeBoer wants to make a change. … Sutter hasn’t decided whether to play Simon Gagne again in Game 4. He played 6:39 Monday in his first game back from a Dec. 26 concussion.

Stats of note: The Devils have not led a single minute in the first three games. In the playoffs, the Kings have outscored their opponents 19-5 after the second intermission (15-5 in the third period, 4-0 in overtime).

With all that said game 4 is going to be a brawl, it looks to me that the Kings have this series on lock and are going to be the champs, or I could be totally wrong and the Kings get beat tonight.

2 When the onions are just beginning to brown, add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine. Simmer for 30 minutes.

3 Pour the sauce into a blender or food processor and purée it until it is smooth. (Note that if you are using a blender, either work in batches, filling the blender no more than a third of the way at a time with the hot sauce, or slowly add the sauce while the blender is running on low speed.)

Amazon Kindle Smartphone Rumors

It is rumored that from the success of the kindle fire and amazon apps that the online giant might become to the market with a smartphone. would that be something a smartphone from Amazon, I hope it pans out better than Facebook’s idea for a smartphone!

Aspired by Apple and build a locked-in infrastructure by fulfilling the needs and contents requirements of users, it’s suggested that an Amazon smartphone will follow the same heavily skinned Android form as the Kindle Fire with users able to download content exclusively from the Amazon Appstore.

Markkanen said. “If Amazon builds up a sizable customer base for its devices, and many of those customers find its content offerings appealing enough, then that would mean a tougher market environment for Apple, as well.”

Good Luck to Amazon I can’t wait to see what they bring to the market? Will they have a leg up??
