Word on the street is, the above picture from WEDG was taken on Briere's street. I don't care if it is true or not because that is fucking fantastic. I don't think I even need to show the 4:20 stoning of lil' danny by Miller again, but in case you missed it:
Ok, so I don't have video evidence available to put up on this site, but you can click here to see Kimmo spearing Gerbe in the nether region. Classy Philly. I keep hearing that Gerbe took a run at Kimmo behind the net first, so again there is that lovely "he deserved it" argument. Going back and forth and saying "he did it first" is classic sports stupidity. I'm sorry, but smacking someone in the BALLS with your stick after the period ended is as grimy as you can possibly get. Unless you are opening a gate for another player to fall...that may be slightly grimier.
Now onto the Briere hate! (lots of links comin', but I told you it's a compilation) I won't go into too many words here because if you really want to know how the DGWU crew feel about him, you can listen to last week's CrapTastiCast, However check out this awesome GIF from Phil at Black & Blue & Gold of Myers owning 'lil danny and then take a listen to Nick Mendola's new rendition of the Elton John classic "Daniel". God Bless both you fine, young gentleman.
And lastly, how have both teams responded? The Flyers keep whining and Ruff calls them bitches. Ok maybe he didn't call them bitches but still. I just find it unbelievable that anyone can say that the refs have been lop-sided this series. I will not argue that there have been some AWFUL calls on both sides, but to say it is lop-sided shows no knowledge of the game of Hockey. Seriously, shoot yourself in the face. Both teams have fought hard, taken some questionable hits, and presented us with some of the best hockey possible. Go back to throwing batteries at your OWN players if you don't believe that.
But let us not end on a sour note! How can we forget Ryan Miller's post-game press conference: “I don’t need to listen to all of the (stuff) that’s out there from people who don’t know how to play goalie. I really don’t give an expletive.” AMAZING! You should also Check out the Sabres 2011 playoff intro. Chills. Then of course there is this picture that Phil from BBG took last night:
Speaking of Phil (he is all over this post!), he will be joining the DGWU crew tonight for the recording of CrapTastiCast Episode 3. Looking forward to having him on to talk Sabres hockey, party in the plaza stories, and of course our favorite topic, BEER. Join us tomorrow for a game five preview from the Apologist and probably more drivel from me. Spring break baby!
