Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends. It’s the Hockey Tweets of the Week. And guys … we have a problem here. It’s week 20, and there is a very real chance that the playoffs , which will arrive very soon, will be missing an entire region of the world:
Seriously guys, there are seven Canadian based franchises, and none of them currently are in a playoff spot. None of them are even close. We all know about the Leafs, who endured a 7-2 loss to Chicago this week:
Beating the leafs is like beating up a snow man. You'll get bored in 2 min and it'll still be destroyed.

And we actually out shot Chicago lmao

Glad I picked the Grammys over the leafs game.. 7-2.. Yikes
— Mark (@KKardi) February 16, 2016
.@RunsOnDuncan leafs win next game and they are back to planning the parade I'm sure you'll survive tonight

But the Montreal Canadiens were getting killed 6-2 on the same night by Arizona:
Ppl enjoying the leafs score. We not far behind that now.

The amazing thing about the Habs being as bad as the Leafs is their fans actually have spirit left to crush and it's beautiful to watch.

But the Canadian social media suffering wasn’t limited to just Montreal and Toronto:
This is one of those #NHLJets game where I have the Benny Hill theme song running through my head as I watch.

Connor McDavid and Johnny Gaudreau need to go on Patty Kane like streaks so they can help out Tankcouver

At Least Matt Moulson Didn’t Tank On Purpose … I Think
Matt Moulson has had a rough go of it this season. He saw a goal scoring drought of 50 games end this week, much to the delight of Twitter.
Some even saw it coming:
Matt Moulson is going to score tonight.

It’s like how animals can predict earthquakes.
Matt Moulson scored. The world is ending
— Ryan Cretacci (@YouCantTochThis) February 17, 2016
ITS THE APOCALYPSE MATT MOULSON SCORED
— Matt W (@MattWal17) February 17, 2016
MATT MOULSON SCORED THAT CONTRACT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!
— LordOfTheNaps. (@L2theIAM) February 17, 2016
Wait.. Moulson is on the Sabres
— Michael Dubin (@MichaelDubin2) February 17, 2016
Wait, Matt Moulson actually plays hockey?!
— Derek Edgar (@DerekEdgar9) February 17, 2016
Well, he tries.
Some Advice For Dennis Wideman
Poor Dennis Wideman. His 20 game suspension was upheld, mainly because of a text that he sent to a teammate about “the stupid refs” and “the stupid media”. Devils beat guy Tom Gulitti has some sage advice for Wideman:
Tom Brady needs to give Dennis Wideman lessons on cell phone disposal.

Best Use Of Creepy Clown Graphics In A Tweet
This goes to the Dallas Stars as they wished their head coach a happy birthday:
Happy birthday, coach! pic.twitter.com/vac5S35eru
— Dallas Stars (@DallasStars) February 17, 2016
Then Lindy Ruff complained that the clown should have gotten a game misconduct.
Worse Use Of A Reverse Pike
By Joseph Blandisi:
OK, so this is the funniest dive I've ever seen. https://t.co/IMte6y4fL6

9.2 … the Russian judge was tough.
The Roberto Luongo Tweet Of The Week
And boy, I hope this is a true account:
Roberto Luongo was just driving behind me as I was getting off the highway. I waved and then he waved back&pointed to the green light lmao
— Mads (@rotekrake) February 18, 2016
Of course, it might not have been Roberto Luongo. It might have been Al Montoya. People have mistaken one for the other:
Good reporting @WinnipegNews – do an article on Roberto Luongo and use a half page picture of Al Montoya in the story – do your homework
— Gil Johnston (@GilJohnston1) February 18, 2016
Or just do a Google Image search.
And Finally …
Ima fix wolves
