woooooooooooooooooooooo
 
espn
Hell, it even made ESPN.com's main page.
 
We could feed you all kinds of shit about how unreal this game was,
coming up with the usual over-the-top emotional opening.
 
But here's the the truth. It's 2:15 A.M.
And we just got back from our first playoff game since 1993, and 1997 respectively.
 
And being that you don't remember anything from childhood unless you were touched where you pee, this was kind of like our first playoff game(s).
 
And it was epic.
But this blog isn't about us.
 
It's about 17,000+ of your closest strangers becoming your friends.
 
It's about screaming things at Mike Richards
that would make your grandmother vomit on herself.
 
A home goal being scored in hockey
is the most unique thing in sports.

In football, you see the pass, you see the hole open for the back.
In basketball, you have the rare buzzer-beater.
With baseball, even a snail could Twitter about an upcoming score.
 
But when that puck goes in, the arena goes
from being semi-silent to an eruption in less than a second.
 
If you want to know what this is all about,

Game 3 is bigger than your mom right now.

Guerin FTW.
 
 
 
We disgrace America by screaming "Richards, You're A Joke" during the anthem.
Had to.
 
And then you have the yuppies near you turn around and go, "oh my God."

We're not even going to bother doing the periods.
We are, however, adding a new rule to our [Playoff Manifesto].
 
Rule 5
"The Bill McCreary rule"
 
This one is easy.
Find a game McCreary is reffing…and kill yourself.
 
You want to talk about a ref wanting to be the star of the game?
His over-the-top, emphatic penalty calls have no place on a hockey rink.
He wants people to know he's there, no matter what.
 
Not sure if anyone can grab the clip, but when the Flyers took a big-time penalty in OT,
he plays to the crowd and does this unreal point to the penalty box.

The Flyers took the lead on a Hartnell goal. And it looked bad.

The good thing about the period was that the Flyers got so much Free Candy
that Aspen Dental opened a franchise in their locker room.
 
Candy's hit on Lupul was dskl;gnafnfh
He finished the game with 13 hits.
 
Lots of other shit happened in the first period, but it feels like it was last week.
Scott Hartnell played 15 minutes it felt like.

In the second the Pens had some early chances,
with Tenk hitting the post after beating French Toast.
 
All you're thinking is that Toast is going to shut the door, but then Bill Guerin showed up.
He took a nasty pass from Malkin and buried it. 1-1.

stunned pics of kids are unreal.
forget who should be credited with this.  it's like 3:30 in the morning.
 
Whatev, whatev.
After the Pens scored, MAF had to make up for an egregious turnover in front of his net.
HUGGGGGE SAVE.

The third started out badly. Some idiot scored for the Flyers, and the Arena fell slient.
The Flyers were a goal away from tying the series.
 
Then they got a two on one.  June Carter and Lupul.
Carter with the pass, MAF saves the first shot, but the puck goes to Carter.
Goal ci…dlp;lfplfplfl;flfdasfg;
 
http://cdn1.bloguin.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/26/2009/04/104.jpg
 
This goal wasn't scored because Carter failed.
But MAF's save re-energized the crowd.  Big-time.
 
Father Time was banging everybody's girlfriend in the third.
It was trying times.

Finally, the Pens get a call.  PP City.
You know what happened.  2-2.

Overtime was some white-knuckle shit.
Staal gets jobbed in a loose-puck situation with Biron.

Somehow, Gill get a penalty at the other end.
Maybe that happened in the third.  wtf
 
No wait, it didn't, 'cause by the time his penalty was over,
the Flyers had two men in the box.
 
Gill's penalty expires, and he bolts to the bench.
You watch to see who the Pens throw onto the ice.
It was one Billy Guerin.

Game.
 
MISECELLANEOUS
— For some reason, we say "shit" a lot for the in-person recaps.
— Jordan Staal has been a force.
— Matt Cooke is showing why he's a big deal.
