Okay...I really don't get the whole "booing other team's stars" thing. What did Crosby do to Ottawa that he gets booed every time he touches the puck? I understand Pens fans booing Derian Hatcher when he touches the puck. For a while I understood booing Jagr (which just seems ridiculous nowadays. Let it go, people). I just don't get random cities booing stars (Crosby, Ovechkin, etc) whenever they touch the puck. Especially since Crosby plays better when he gets mad/challenged. Do people really think it will throw a good player off their game? To summarize: stupid. (Of course, I'm also an advocate of never booing the home team...which not many people ever agree with me on. Will booing make them play better? No. Will cheering them on when they're struggling and needing support help them play better? A lot more likely than being negative.)
"His arms are going to fall off! It's a shooting gallery out there!"
Steiggy: "He is a man of sartorial splendor, Evgeni Malkin."
So if there was one word to describe Petr Sykora's stick, it would be _______.
"The kids in amateur have a stop sign on their back. Do they need it here for the Ottawa Senators?"
"What are you telling me? A couple detentions for Gary?"
Okay...watching the game on my DVR screwed me and I missed the last 5 minutes or so of the game as I didn't plan ahead and record whatever was on afterwards. Post anything I missed. Also, to Ryan: I missed the quotes you texted me about ("boiling an egg behind the net" and the maid comment). I'm hoping someone will post those in the comments.
So what did we learn tonight? Evgeni Malkin throws away Petr Sykora's shoes on a daily basis.
