Careful, It's Slippery

This probably wasn't the way to intimidate the Detroit Red Wings coming into Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. The goalie, his name is Marc-André Fleury, and there is a caution stripe on that step. Either that or they just mopped.

This angle, for which I am ever thankful the morning after, is not the greatest; CBC's camera had a better view, combined with two men sitting on the ice a couple feet away wearing Red Wings apparel, laughing their octopi-molesting asses off. At first I thought those two seedy Michiganders had something to do with it, but then again I'm ready to blame the locals at any given point in history.


And it's certainly not the best penguin fall of all time:

Detroit won 4-0, thanks to Mikael Samuelsson's two-goals and Chris Osgood's blocking-the-puck-with-his-stick-and-body skills. A local TV station used the caption subhead "OZ-GOOD." Still trying to figure out where the pun is. Or maybe it's supposed to be funny because it's misspelled. Levity!
