Yeah, that’s a stupid take.

Or you can use Colorado's "tweaked something" like it was used concerning Grubauer and Johnson.

Reaves had the Canucks completely unhinged. He’s in their heads.

It's savage because it worked. Roussel was out of his mind. It was so bad, I'd consider scratching Roussel.

But yeah, most of the stuff NHL players chirp to each other isn't creative.

https://theathletic.com/2018547/2020/08 ... n-the-ice/

While we said goodbye to a Game of Chirps favourite in the Calgary Flames this week, it’s now abundantly clear that no team in the Western Bubble is as schoolyard mean on the ice as the Vegas Golden Knights. They’re the Vegas Boulevard Bullies, except most of their cruelty is verbal. Currently, the Golden Knights undisputedly wear the Game of Chirps crown.

The Golden Knight’s chirp game has reached the point where, in multiple games this past week, a player on the Vegas bench literally chicken bawk’d at their opponents. As a group the Golden Knights are meaner than anybody, they’re like Regina George, Tywin Lannister and Crabbe and Goyle all wrapped up into one unrepentant jerk of a hockey team. It helps that they’re an actual buzz saw in terms of the quality of their play too.

Over over!” – Vegas centre Paul Stastny tries to trick Corey Crawford into a puck handling error by pretending to be a Blackhawks defender calling for the puck.

*f-bomb* off!” – Crawford to Stastny as he plays the puck correctly, to his teammate.

There's an old story about an opponent doing that to Gordie Howe during a game. Howe did the blind pass to what he thought was his teammate only to see it went to the opponent who tricked him. Howe was so pissed about it, and brained the guy at the end of the period when the teams were leaving the ice.

I don't mind personally, that's part of the playoffs.

In the Montréal-Philly series you had this:

John Madden did that to Lemieux back in the 2001 playoffs by yelling "Ace!", so Mario sticked him up real good LOL. It’s in the code ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Wonko and I had an opponent do that in beer league hockey. One of our wingers had the puck down near the corner. Our d-man on that side went for a change, so the opposing forward parked near the blue line and yelled "point point point." Our winger sent it to the point where they guy took it on a breakaway.

I don't remember if the guy scored, but I remember us all being super pissed because the other team was blowing us out when the guy did that.

Somebody on the Stars is leading the playoffs in goal scoring. When's the last time you could say that?

Only three short of Joe Nieuwendyk's Smythe output.

Although the play-in *poo poo* shouldn't count.

If the Stars were to make the Finals he might well come close to his regular season output.

This game is great. Vegas dominating, but Vancouver scoring on every third shot.

Agreed. These should have been counted as regular season stats.
