Best Worst Game Ever!

HENRIK TALLINDER SCORED THE GAME-WINNING GOAL (and an assist) AND WAS THE FIRST STAR! Everything else about this stink bomb of a win is just details.

Go Hank, go Hank, go, go, go Hank!

Hank is now on pace for 5.46 goals this season! He's a scoring machine!

(If MSG showed good footage of Hank's little "I just scored a freakin' GOAL!" dance and someone happens to have that footage and some way to get it on the internet well, that person would be my very best friend. Just putting that out there.)

Did you flip your sh*t? He was so happy as well as I!!! Yay for Hank the Tank! He deserves the pigeon tonight!

I was unaware of the Sabres' practice of pigeon sacrifice.

Heather, I DVR'd the game, assuming that went okay, I am totally putting his celebration on Youtube.

Jill, yes, I totally flipped :) When your favorite player scores once in a blue moon, you have to make the most of it, you know?

Lee, small animal sacrifice is really the way to go. All the good teams do it, I think. (Don't let the pigeon drive the bus!)

Tick, if and when you get it up, please let me know! You are a true superhero! (Vote for Teppo!)

I have it on the DVR as well, and can't do the YouTube thing, but I could throw it off on a dvd for you Heather. :) I'll see what I can do.

I don't have any actual link to the Hank dance, but I believe it looked something like this:

5:35ish mark is when the Hank Love starts.

Jill said...

Loved the dance! Thanks for the link!

The best part about Hank's goal was the look of pure happiness on his face. He was still smiling like 5 minutes later! And the first star? Way to go, Hank!

shelli said...

And yes, Hank's dance looked exactly like the gopher's only with a lot less hair. FREAKIN' HILARIOUS!!!!

Hank's happy dance was awesome!

Yahoo has a great photo of Goose in front of the net on Hank's goal whooping it up as the puck sits in the net. It's kind of like a WTF Hank scored?! look.

Vanek's Hair nailed it. That's the same exact dance! LOL.

Heather, I totally agree! Hank's goal dance was one of the few times I didn't feel the game was really lame. I think he should have gotten the pigeon. Peters fought a couple guys we don't really care about. My brother used to kick my ass numerous times in the same day, and no one thought he deserved a dead, stuffed bird for it.

And that video Vanek's Hair posted should totally be intertwined with Hank's dance.
