Valiant Efforts to Change Yesterday's Game!

Even though yesterday's game was complete torture to watch, there were some highlights and here are two: Talbot going after Campbell for messing with Sid and then Sid going after McLean right from faceoff. This is really one of the enjoyable parts of hockey for me, especially to witness it live at the Igloo!

I'm not sure if it showed this part on TV, but our seats were close to the door to the Pens locker room and as Talbot skated towards the door, he started to wave his arms up and down to motivate the crowd to continue to cheer.

Results from (yeah, Campbell got his ass handed to him!):
Talbot - 64.3%
Draw - 31.6%
Campbell - 4.1%

Errey's color commentating of Sidney's fight is just priceless (and I expect nothing less from the Bibster!)!! And notice McLean's reaction after the fight. He has a little smirk on his face like, "that did not just happen!" He's stunned!!

Results at for this fight are a little closer (between Sid and a draw):
Crosby - 45%
Draw - 44.5%
McLean - 10.5%

This is 2 of the MOST FABULOUS things I have ever seen!!!!

Talbot laid out a beat down!!!!

I voted Crosby, on I have noticed over there, that the "regulars" will gang up and vote "draw" or "tie" just so some certain players [cough, Steve Ott, cough] will show up as losing a fight. I'm thinking this might be happening here.

I agree with you on the Talbot fight, but if I was the Lip, I would have been embarrassed. Just attacking someone esp while a face off is in progress was pretty chicken shit to me.
