He didn't. :(
It's funny that for once we can worry about something other than hanging onto the 1-goal lead in the last 30 seconds, or about that other player that left in the second period and will not return because of a lower body injury.
Like the Sabres thought they could get away with that stupid early goal. They freed hair, which released some holy energy into Consol Energy Center, and there was clearly no going back.
Michalek scored, and warmed our hearts with his Czechness. James Neal scored. Someone in the press had a major crush on Kovalev:
We'd say more, but we were overwhelmed by the nougat that is Tyler Myers' brain:
Still trying to figure out how he's still alive. But that's a story for another day.
Kim wants me to tell you that she says (and I quote exactly), "Hi."
Now that we've got Neal and Michalek and Kovalev and Niskanen out of the way, everyone who is new to the party has scored this season as a Penguin. We're a family now. Bring it.
Short/nonexistent post because big Hair League changes and updates are in the works.
Was I missing something, or did Uncle Jordy get a haircut? Because I'm slow, and I could have been missing something.
@DG5871 Alas, Big Thunder caved to the pressure from the tweenies and he cut his hairses. But he sent me some stray locks that I incorporated into some awesome Volcano and Godzilla Sushi Rolls. So his powah lives on. Request: Hair League stat types need to track his "prowess" post-buzzcut v. batwing era. He's not on my team but I'm always interested in his performance numbers based on fluff factors such as hair. And glow-in-the-dark lube.
@DG5871 Jordan did get a haircut! It was late last week, I believe. Pens posted several pics on Twitter.
