Wild 2 - Penguins 1 SO
The game wasn't that bad.
The Penguins didn't get shut out and no one got hurt.
The man sitting next to us was the worst part. He wouldn't stop commenting on every goddamned play that happened on the ice. Usually other fans don't really register on our radar but he was annoying.
For example, he called Pascal Dupuis "You, me" the whole night.
He thought that calling Philippe Boucher "Bobby" was freakin' hysterical. And then he and his friend kept screaming Waterboy quotes every time Boucher was on the ice.
Even Bobby thinks that's lame-sauce.
And he also actually said, "I don't like this line at all. Therrien doesn't know what he's doing."
Um, yeah, about that.
Things we noticed while rolling our eyes in D7.....
-Totally saw two Gaborik jerseys. We were shocked.
-Koivu scored and we totally knew that he would. It was either him or Brunette because no one else does.
-Matt Cooke's goal made us laugh. Staal whiffed on it about ninety times and confuses Backstrom so bad that Cooke has time to score. It was a sweet play.
-We were excited to see Cal Clutterbuck on the ice for a few moments until he totally dove in the corner when Kris Letang um, hit him. Brooks Orpik had words with him.
-There's nothing more we hate than fans who scream at Hal Gill. We know that the bitch can't skate but hell, he does the best he can. And he had the most amazing shift on the PK.
-On one shift, Goligoski's stick got stuck in the net. We swear we could hear Bob Errey screaming for him to leave it and play the body.
-So here's a story: Jordan Staal is minding his own business, skating without the puck when he's high-sticked in the face by none other than Marek Zidlicky and then he sees Cooke get elbowed by Reitz. Bitch says that's enough.
-We were pumped to see Jordan Staal actually drop the gloves, like literally drop them. It was amazing to see the anger in him, how mad he was from the uncalled high-stick and the uncalled elbow.
-The Minnesota Wild are huge. And we don't mean popular or important, we mean physically.
-We haven't heard Mellon Arena go silent like after Malkin went down since Crosby sprained his ankle. It was a scary moment that only Malkin would deliver.
-Brent Burns high-sticked Goligoski during OT and we were sure that the Penguins would score. But Malkin forgot how to carry the puck without giving it up to the opposing team.
-The shootout was lame.
-Actually, the entire game was lame. We were in bad moods even before the puck dropped and the jackass next to us didn't help and then we had to watch the New Jersey Wild suck the life out of the game.
