from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News,
Hockey players normally don’t have the most exuberant personalities in the sports world, a fact reflected in their boring nicknames and tired expressions. What are the worst clichés used by NHLers? That’s the focus of this week’s THN.com Top 10.
10. A two-goal lead is the hardest to protect
Somehow, and I know this might sound hard to believe to the untrained ear, a one-goal lead – which can be erased with, you guessed it, one goal – is easier to protect than a two-goal advantage. All this time the NHL had goals that count as double-and-triple-scores and nobody told me.
9. We didn’t play a full 60 minutes
Are there teams out there leaving the game en masse midway through the third period, or taking a brief sabbatical 15 minutes into the first? Of course not. Fellas, you all play at least a full 60 minutes every night. You just don’t play those minutes well sometimes. Be more specific.
