Penguins 5 - Hurricanes 2
We swear that if Paul jinxes Petr again we will kill him. It's not even funny anymore. When Petr scores, it feels like our imaginary five-year-old son just did. But we've noticed that he seems happier when he scores from Crosby than Malkin.
Anyway, you would think that a team would come out motivated after getting a new coach. And the Hurricanes sorta did. But somehow Sabourin and even the defensemen shut them down. It was amazing seeing the Penguins hold onto a 3-goal lead like it was a 1-goal lead.
Things we noticed while cheering for Petr from our couch.....
-The Canes fans are kinda quiet. They got a chant of something started but it wasn't that great.
-Petr Sykora is one of our favorite humans alive. And in the post-game interview when he called Malkin "Master Malkin" we died. Such a happy human.
-This picture is hilarious. We love Sykora and Goligoski.
Goligoski's face just screams, "God, Dad. Can you not embarrass me in front of my friends?"
-Yet again, Sidney Crosby was a big f-ing deal. A quiet 4-point night never gets old.
-Yay for the power play working!
-Kris Letang had an awesome game. Like, we now understand why men love him so much. Well, maybe not the blind adoration that most men have for him, but close.
-We never thought we'd say it, but we missed Tyler 'Animal' Kennedy. His crazy, balls-out forecheck was sorely missed.
-Who plays for Carolina besides Brandon Sutter and uh, Michael Leighton? Because those are the only two players we noticed.
-The Brooks Orpik open-ice hit on Ruutu was orgasmic. We missed those from Mr. Orpik.
-Nice bounce-back game for Sabourin.
-We were screaming for Miro Satan to score that goal. When we saw Chad Larose push it in, we knew it was Satan's. And we were yelling at Crosby to get him the goal.
-Noodles had to be restrained when Ruutu hit Goligoski into the boards from behind.
We liked his pansy-ass shove back after he scraped his face off the boards. So Ryan Whitney-like.
-Fedotenko. Will throw himself into the net to score. That's dedication.
-Bob Errey did the Hockey 101 at the first intermission. And it was money. He did 'Astrology' because Sidney Crosby is the Penguins shining star. How gay. But we loved it anyway.
-"I was making sure that I played well defensively," [Sykora] said. "I didn't want to cheat to get that third goal."
