But they are pretty damn close.
On the left is the dazzlingly handsome Johan "Moose" Hedberg at the final game of the season after he has given his jersey away in the "Shirt off of our Back"promotion.
On the right is my new friend and birthday present, Hedberg. My friend Candace sent me Hedberg from Build-A-Bear. She made sure he looked just like Moose did in the "Shirt Off Of Our Back" game.

I don't know but they definitely take giant steaming craps on the ice at the RBC Center.
The RBC Center and I don't have the greatest history together. When I saw the Thrashers play here in January, we got shut out 2-0.
In fact, the last GOOD memory I have of the RBC Center is of the 2004 NHL Draft. I have no idea who that guy is with Ovy, he just stopped for a picture and I jumped out and took one.
My birthday is April 29 and I thought it would be fun to see one last hockey game of the season. It was a win-win situation.
- I see more hockey
- I see my Devils again
- It's play off hockey
- The Devils can't be eliminated that night (I'm not driving 6 hours for heart ache again)
So I made me a sign, bought me some tickets, took a day off of work and headed for Raleigh! I made Marty a "happy early birthday" sign, too. His birthday is May 6. We were even born in the same year!
Finally the teams come out for the warm ups. I'm so excited to see Marty and the rest of my Devils.
Hey, who is that good looking guy? Yay, it's Clemmer! We missed you, Scotty. Scott Clemmensen and Cam Ward warm up...neither one will need it.
Marty shooting the puck. He's been clocked shoot the puck over 80 mph and that is in full goalie gear with a goalie stick.
Colin White likes my sign.
Clemmer pacing around looking bored. Cam Ward photobombed his pic.
Clemmer read my sign.
Awwww, isn't that cute. They let Clemmer warm up for a few seconds.
Colin White looking pretty shaggy.
Awwwww, Zach with a big smile. Enjoy it while you can, there won't be shit to smile about for the rest of the night.
Hello Patrick Elias.
We were very excited to get the Captain, Jaimey Langenbruner back. We thought it would be big. We were wrong.
Warming up Clemmer...???? Eh, you never know. He might play a game *snort*
And the award for the best Devils playoff goes to Swedish Hot Chocolate, Johnny Oduya. Marty is photobombing his pic.
Wallin crashed Wardo's net.
Some proof that we actually DID go out of our zone at least once during the game.
Wardo looking very majestic with his stick.
WOW! Wardo made a stop. Not a slam on Wardo at all, a slam on the fact that the Devils didn't shoot at the net.
Clarkson attempting to make a nice screen on Wardo. He was there a lot, didn't do any good though.
"Dear God, please let them shoot the puck at the other net. If they can't do that, let them pass it to me and I'll shoot it. Amen. I'm sorry about that sister in law thing."
As craptastic as this game turned out to be, it was worth it for this one picture. Marty made an amazing glove save and I got it with my camera.
Marty making another save.
Marty can make saves all night, but until the Devils start shooting the puck on Cam Ward...they aren't going to score. This was the shot clock sometime in the 2nd period. We actually had a bet as to whether the Canes would take 30 shots before the Devils got to 10.
Action near Marty...as usual.
Marty tracking the puck.
Some discussions in front of Marty's net.
Some discussions in front of Wardo's net.
Clarkson and Gleason decide they need to have some discussions in private.
Meanwhile, back at Cam Ward's net...
Clarkson and Gleason are still busy.
