Penguins 3 - Thrashers 2
Atlanta games usually suck. And as Bob-Paul kept reminding the viewers, the Penguins should just forefeit the game whenever they go to Atlanta.
Uh, yeah, about that...
We were expecting a more frustrating game after the Penguins squandered (waht a great word) a lengthy 5-on-3.
But Sidney Crosby had other plans.
He was definitely our player of the game. And everyone else's.
Things we noticed while hosting our viewing party.....
-Sidney Crosby's flying by the seat of his pantyhose goal was the highlight of the night. Obviously.
-DJPo had a little snippet of a story about EmoErik and Army taking the boys out to dinner in the A.T.L. It was nice to hear that they're still friends...kinda.
-The first few minutes were almost like a feeling-out between the two teams. They just skated around and exchanged pleasantries.
-Thrashers score on their first power play when our new favorite oldster went to the box for doing something defensive.
-We could have called Kozlov's goal because he always scores.
-Kris Letang's hit on Todd White was brutal and we're not even sure if it was legal or not but it was pretty wow.
-Of course, Colby and Crosby were hitting each other. It's almost like everyone who played with Crosby hates him when they leave. He must be a douchebag.
-We love Miroslav Satan and his always subtle yet awesome goals.
-Boucher on the power play is pretty sweet. We just wish that Yeo wouldn't put two right-handed shots on the point. Who does that?
-Godard had a few words with Colby after he and Sid were jawing and play-hitting each other. Lame-o.
-Petr Sykora is amazing and we love that he knows where to be on the power play and that he was just in the right place at the right time.
-Dany Sabourin is the shiz. He makes the saves that keep the crazy Penguins in the game. We love him for that.
-Team celebrations are getting more and more homo with each passing game.
First, Sykora pushed everyone out of the way to kiss Sabourin on the mask
Then Kris Letang face-washed him.
Third, Jordan Staal grabbed Sykora and chased him around the back of the net, biting his shoulder. No joke.
And there was a lot of other touching and groping and general gayness.
-Petr Sykora's goal on the power play was exciting for us. And we think that Boucher on the power play made that happen.
-Rookie Goligoski had a pretty good game. He tried for a hip-check on Armstrong and was so close to landing. We don't know how we would have felt about that. Steigerwald called him 'Rob Blake'...we were shocked.
-Winner, winner chicken dinner...Sidney Crosby.
