Game 3: Rapid Fire Predictions

  • Tonight’s score: 1-0 Habs.
  • Halak makes 28 saves.
  • Scott Gomez pots the winner, midway through the second period.
  • 4th line: SK74, Metro, AK46.
  • 4th line: play well and actually get some minutes… but get benched in the 3rd for no reason.
  • Pleks: gets a chance short-handed but is hauled down. Doesn’t score on the penalty shot.
  • 1st intermission: Don Cherry mispronounces his own name.
  • Dominic Moore: leaves the game but is okay.
  • Mike Cammalleri: hits the post on the powerplay, rolls his eyes.
  • PK Subban: plays out of his mind, sets up the Gomez goal. Says something clever about slashing to the net.
  • 2nd intermission: NHL has already released a “What if” commercial featuring the Gomez goal.
  • Gill: Gives Crosby another couple of bear hugs; blocks 9 shots .
  • Scrums: lots of them.
  • Travis Moen: gets into the only real fight.
  • Bell Centre: so loud that the ice cracks
  • Sid: So frustrated that he cracks, gets a roughing penalty
  • JM: Sports an ugly tie and is so waxen that it’s impossible to tell if he’s frustrated, excited or even alive.
  • Kirk Muller: Another awesome fist pump at the end of the game.
  • Perry Pearn: gets stopped by security because they don’t recognize him.
  • Dan Bylsma: makes Ruslan Fedotenko feel uncomfortable with a harsh stare.
  • Geno Malkin: gets called out by his coach after the game.
  • MA Fleury: chanting gets to him as he repeatedly misplays the puck behind his net.
  • Sergei Gonchar: leaves the game after blocking a Josh Gorges point shot with his left hand.
  • 3rd period: Just when they’re making a push, Pittsburgh gets called for too many men. The penalty is rescinded, however, after the referees confer and rightly judge that their were 5 men on the ice – and Matt Cooke.
  • Post-game: at least one French Canadian player from the Pens says, “We knew it was going to be loud, but not that loud.”
