Get it, like Mikey Monday? Well I can maniacally laugh now because the Caps just won an overtime comeback victory, but look at this:
That would be 18 penalty minutes in under 12 minutes of game time. Mike Green: Time Turner. Making time out of time that hasn’t happened yet because he has that many penalties.
If you have Game Center Live, you can go back and watch this. I do not recommend the first period, as this was my reaction:
Instead, read this Russian Machine Never Breaks recap which softens the blow with gifs. Or just laugh with the girl whose fiance scored 4 goals in the game.
That is one fewer than Mike Green took penalties, so there. Nicky B had 5 points, because he and Mike always have to be matchy matchy.
Now no more of this, Mike. The Caps have won 3 in a row and moved to 2nd in the Metropolitan Division… which is a bit like a Perfect Attendance Award, at 36 points overall, but there is still time to get hot and stay hot or just be Ovechkin. Damn, he has a lot of goals.
That’s almost – almost! – as good as holding a dog like an awkward baby.
After this awful hockey weekend, not even Mike Green getting 5 penalties in less time than it takes to make macaroni & cheese can get me down. We love you, Mike. We even love Ovi right now. That was a sick performance but a man so gleefully parenthetical. Four goal games make me want to madly punctuate things in place of emoticons.
