Ice To See You Carolina, Enjoy The Sauce

DC Sports Nexus ---- Friday, November 4, 2011

The Washington Capitals beat the Carolina Hurricanes for the 2nd time this season (5-1) to go to 9-2. Nuevy kind of had a nice game and Marjo had an awesome assist in what was a "chippy" game with lots of "almost fights". The Caps got lucky early as a Hurricanes goal was called off due to an incorrect quick whistle. Rookie callup Eakin picked up his first career NHL point with a secondary assist, and then scored a goal later to elicit a scream that could be heard around the neighborhood.

One of the Hurricanes is named McBain and every time the announcers said his name I laughed. All I could think of was the character from the Simpsons. And speaking of the Simpsons every time Jeff Skinner missed a shot I imagined super nintendo Chalmers screaming SKINNER!

Here are my notes and questions for the night:
  • Announcer quote of the night: "Shampoo is there to keep the peace" about referee Pierre Shampoo.
  • I Lied, real announcer paraphrase of the night: "I think you have the best sauce on the team". That sounds so gross. What exactly is sauce?
  • Why did the refs break up every shoving match. Is there a fighting protocol that I am unaware of?
  • Carolina has 2 Cams. Does any other sports "town" have even one Cam? What is that short for anyway?
  • Do Hurricanes fans really call themselves Caniacs? Do they really have a "honk honk honk" guy too? And what's with the mini honking thing...if you watched on TV you heard what I was talking about.
  • Ruutu: Bounty Hunter, Ewok, Disney Character, Avatar, or Hockey Player?
  • And of course, always remember: ROW ROW ROW ROW ROW ROW

Sauce equals saucer pass. A pass that is lifted from the ice and delivered through the air instead of just along the ice.

Cam = Cameron

BTW, illicit = illegal. I think you wanted "elicited"...
