Well, this had to be the best start to a game I have ever seen. First, Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury tried to run dramatically on to the ice to start the game.... and promptly fell flat on his face!
(No, I didn't give it a caption! It's too perfect! Adding anything else would ruin it!)
Next, when Pittsburgh's starting line was announced, Budd Lynch, the very dignified rink announcer at Joe Louis Arena, announced Pittsburgh's hugely overhyped and whiny crybaby captain Sidney Crosby as "Steven Crosby."
But the beginning, as gloriously entertaining as it was, was not as perfect as the ending. Red Wings 4, Pittsburgh 0. WOOOOOOOT!
