Evgeni Malkin (That’s Not My Name)

So has everyone heard that Ting Tings song, “That’s Not My Name“? It made it big because of the Victoria Secret Fashion Show over the winter. Anyway, someone did a remix to it for Evegen Malkin and I thought it was pretty funny. It starts off slow, but worth the time, especially if you’re looking to zone out for a few minutes at work. This is compliments of our friends over at Chics Hockey, check it out, they also have some Stanley Cup partying photos.

Coming out of Hibernation…sort of.

 Fleury save

So The Loge has been quiet as of late, but its just that time of year, so you’re going to have to deal with it.  The Penguins won the Stanley Cup, returning the favor to Detroit by celebrating their triumph at the Joe (Detroit beat Pitt in Game six at the igloo last year).  Malkin won the Conn Smyth, YEA, RAH RAH RAH (insert sarcasm), and I believe the weight of the Cup rested on the dirty french canadian (not dirty in a good way…dirty as in, well dirty), Marc-Andre Fleury’s shoulders; and he delivered.  With 1 second to go, Fleury made an unbelievable diving stop on Lidstrom which would have been a soldering-iron to the Penguins face (Not to mention he got a little help from his friend (crossbar) in the final minutes).  The talk of the Cup Finale however, was Mr. Sydney Crosby skipping out on a bit of the NHL-Traditional, series ending handshake.  One of our regulars here at Loge19 (ChickenParm), pointed it out after the game on the previous post’s comments section.  Personally, I can’t stand Crosby, and this is just another reason why.  I know it’s his first Stanley Cup, and its a dream come true to the young wizkid, but C’MON NOW!  This is one of the classiest traditions in sports, and SHOULD be the SECOND thing on EVERY players mind after celebrating with your teammates first.  You should know that the losing players do not want to stay on the ice and be a part of YOUR celebration.  It’s selfish, classless, and should be fineable by the good ‘ole Commissioner Bettman.  There is no place for that in the game, and I had the same reaction last year when Brodeur snubbed Avery during the ritual.   Those are suppossed to be the stars/faces of the league, and they go around pulling beer league stunts like that.  There should be no excuse for that, and you should read this ESPN article about it; has Draper’s reaction (he’s the man), more detail about what happened, as well as the Pittsburgh vice president Tom McMillan’s explanation…absolutely pathetic.  I hope Crosby drops the cup on his day with it, and camera are there to wacth it happen.

Moving on, there are a few things I wanted to post on here before they become old news.  Sean Avery is officially back in his element in the big city.  After partnering up to open his own bar, Warren 77, Avery was a field reporter at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival for FUSE TV (his pictures follow flava flavs on the last page of the album). Like he wasn’t partying as hard as the bare foot hippies dancing around throwing flowers everywhere…yeah right!  And if you want a little more Sean Avery in your life, here is a clip from Monday night’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, featuring Mr. Avery.  It’s good to have Sean Avery back in NY!

Penguins Go Up 2-0/Blackhawks and Wings Game 2 Goal Scorer Guess

He Shoots, He Scores!!!

The Pittsburgh Penguins went up 2-0 on the Carolina Hurricanes tonight by winning in a 7-4 barnburner. Congrats to Loge 69 for winning the Guess the Scorer contest. He has won a Versus t-shirt and poster. Did anyone see Malkin’s third goal of the night? Ridiculous!!! As Ross, “The Answer”, put it, “it must have been hot in the Mellon arena tonight because Malkin was handing out snipesicles”. 

Either way, this Stanley Cup Playoffs have been exactly what the NHL asked for. 4 of the leagues top stars, Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, and Kane have all scored hat tricks at some point. Ovechkin and Crosby in the same game! 

So, for Game 3 of the Hawks/Wings game tomorrow, we’re going to do the same format. In the comments section give me the player you think will score the first goal of the game. As a tie breaker, also give the game time the goal will be scored. The winner will receive a Versus t-shirt and poster.

Links from around the NHL – 3.26 – Ovechkin can dance and juggle a soccer ball at the same time

  • Once again Alexander Oveckin tells it how it is with his new apparel (above) and great quote (below). I can only imagine the amazing Russian techno that Ovechkin rocks out to before the game… (Via CBC Sports & EmptyNetter)

“If you win the lottery — a million dollars — you go to the bar and drink a lot,” Ovechkin said. “I scored 50 goals and I just celebrated.”

“I play myself, I enjoy my life, I have enjoyed my whole career. If somebody don’t like it, don’t watch my game, don’t watch what I’m doing on the ice.”
