I pity the fool who answers the NHL TV customer service line when I call today. Well, the person won’t be a fool, nor can they actually do anything about the disaster of a changeover from Game Center Live. But still. I don’t pay $150 a year to miss Sidney Crosby hat tricks!
Last night, Sid scored three very necessary goals to lead the Penguins to a 6-5 victory over Ottawa.
I won’t take credit for this particular scoring surge, but ask Lindsay if it might be the result of a conversation we had yesterday. I once ended the lockout, you know.
Hopefully this is a sign for the Pens, who currently hold the last EC wild card slot. The East is all jammed up: seven teams within two points, and all for third in the division.
On Monday, Sid told press, “Our playoffs basically start now.” And he kinda smiled when he said it. [Video]
While you were enjoying the Penguins goals and wondering WTAF they were doing between goals, I was practicing yoga with this Sid workout clip.
(Bless @Kiki5851 for finding this.)
Except I only managed Shavasana, where you lay on the floor looking dead while trying to compose yourself. I have elite skills.
Then, the Twitters told me that freshly-returned-from-injury Connor McDavid did this:
Well, shit. That is an amazing goal. Tell me again what you were doing in 1997, when he was born? My Home Ec class egg baby is older than Connor McDavid. (Haha, #TeamEggBaby it is!)
Alas, I saw no actual hockey AGAIN. I will be sending this post to the suggestion box at NHL TV – which probably does work, because obviously.Tags: connor mcdavid, Edmonton Oilers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby
