To start the first period vs. the Islanders last night, James Neal scored his sixth goal of the season. To end the period, he took a penalty.
He’s too busy to fix his hair for interviews.
NOPE. It’ll be a sad, scoreless day in the ‘Burgh before Nealer doesn’t care about his flow.
This .gif is even better for it’s choppiness – it’s like he performs a magic trick and doubles the amount of hair with the wave of his hand.
A wonderful person even filmed it off their TV so you wouldn’t miss out: link.
The Pens won their 7th game of the season, putting them atop the Eastern Conference with 14 points. Look at these two – James is mesmerized by Kris, Kris is mesmerized by what I can only imagine is Sid off-camera, nose stuffed full of bloody cotton from a puck to the face, but still. They’re so googly-eyed they can’t even high-five.
Nealmobile was 1st Star of the game. Here he is being borrrrrrrrrring in a snuggly sweatshirt on NHL Tonight [link].
Read more about James’ recent success and how he honed that wicked shot from the Ellwood City Ledger. Frankly there is a limit to the number of times I can hear “stick” or “slot” without giggling.
Pens vs. Caps – Round 2 tomorrow night in Pittsburgh, on NHL Network.
You know where I’ll be.
