I uploaded more hockey pr0n to YouTube. Unfortunately, although the videotape was fine, somewhere during the transfer process, audio/video glitches were introduced to Petr's interview. :( But most of it is okay. Go look! :)
Joe Thornton is pretty funny:
``It's not something where you phone your parents and say, `Hey, I lost my tooth,' and then put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy,'' Thornton said. ``It's more like, `Damn, I lost some teeth and now I've got to go sit in the dentist chair for an hour.' ''
The Sharks are trying to kill me again! I was scared to watch the game! They made me feel like a Canucks fan! And OMG what crack is Garon on? ``We gave up three power-play goals, you can't have that many penalties against a team with such a good power play,'' Garon said.
Let me explain the Sharks PP to you. Players, coaches, even GMs come and go (and I've only been watching "seriously" since the 02-03 season) but the Sharks PP stays the same.
First, have a defenseman set up behind our own net. If by some stroke of luck we win the faceoff in the offensive zone, have a defenseman set up behind our own net anyway.
Next, either attempt to carry the puck into the zone through the four guys standing at the blueline, or shoot the puck hard into the zone to the precise location where there is absolutely nobody to support and retrieve it.
Follow with shots from the point that either hit someone's skate/stick/butt/face or go wide of the net. Should we elect not to take the shot from the point, all five guys shall remain motionless while passing to each other until a penalty killer gets a stick in the passing lane or pressures a guy and forces him out of the zone.
So umm, my reaction to a statement like Garon's is to do that choke-on-absolutely-nothing thing. :P It's irrelevant that we scored three PPGs too. ;)
Shootout boys, Patty and Petr! And Petr being the shootout winner!!! :D Even though the coach forgot about him because he was at the end of the bench and he didn't see him, haha. He got put into the shootout once in Anaheim. He was all bitchy about it too in his post-game comments! "We had [five] shootouts in Anaheim and they put me in once," Sykora said. "I'm just happy to be part of a club that's driven to make the playoffs."
He actually didn't say those things one after the other, but I like how bitchy that sounds. He yapped at the Bruins goalie too! That kills me.
I feel as if I had so much more I wanted to say, but it's all gone now. This short-term memory loss thing is going too far. I don't even smoke pot!
