Boom.

I love McLeod. Every game this series, he was standing up to the antics of the Ducks. He's not afraid to take hard hits and respond accordingly.

The first catfish was thrown onto the ice in 2003, in a game against the Red Wings, who have a tradition of fans throwing octopi onto the ice for good luck. It's a great way to get the crowd pumped up.

So we're knee deep in game one of the SCF and Rita suddenly starts rooting for the preds. I didn't even do anything to make her mad.

Why would you cheer for the Pens, JimVH? You make me sad.

PREDS! PREDS! PREDS! One of the best things about being home this past year was getting to watch my Preds eviscerate every opponent that came their way. 12-4 in the Playoffs? I'll take it.

Injuries have battered the Preds though, and I fear they will not be able to contain the Penguins' centers.

Games 3 and 4 were great. Game 5 should be an interesting one.
