If you didn’t spend at least a little bit of time laughing your head off during Game Two, then you have my condolences for being a Philadelphia fan.
The Flyers couldn’t even get a little thing like a mid-ice sandwich right! Dan Carcillo was hell-bent on slamming the Blackhawks Tomas Kopecky between himself and teammate Jeff Carter, but Kopy just leaned backward out of the way and Carcillo flattened Carter Keystone Kops style.
Goaltender Leighton sounded like he was comparing Ben Eager to Alexander Ovechkin during a postgame interview. Folks, that’s BEN EAGER he was talking about, not Johnny T.
And finally, Romper Stomper pouting Chris Pronger let his true colours fly and let us know why everyone – including Ducks fans – are fully justified in reviling him even more than Bertuzzi.
At the end of the game, Pronger managed to collect a misconduct penalty when he picked up the puck and apparently Eager took exception. Prior to Pronger’s interview, Eager said, “He’s been picking up pucks after the game and I just told him he can keep it.” Here’s the transcript from CSNPhilly.com and the Delco Times with Pronger:Reporter: What happened? Pronger: I couldn’t hear [Eager], I don’t speak gibberish. Reporter: Where’s the puck? Pronger: It’s in the garbage,where it belongs. Reporter: You shot a towel at Eager when he complained? Pronger: So what? Reporter: You’re collecting pucks now? Pronger: Why not? What’s wrong? It’s sitting there. What else is gonna happen to it? … You got a problem with that? Reporter: Are you gonna sell it on eBay? Pronger: I don’t know. Apparently, it got [Eager] upset. So I guess it worked, didn’t it? It’s too bad. I guess little things amuse little minds.
What a douche! Almost makes me miss Arthukyn.
