"D'jou guys see that oh man I was right there!!1!"

In last night’s Penguins/Flyers game, things got a little heated. Flyers’ coach Peter Laviolette blamed Dan Bylsma and the Penguins for creating the on-ice chaos by putting their fourth line on the ice after some drama (they hadn’t played in 12 minutes), so he snapped a Max Talbot stick over the glass in the Pens direction, half of which ended up in their bench (“Said Talbot, “It was sad. That was a good stick.”)

Either way, Pens assistant coach Tony Granato got fired up in return, and stood on the bench to go face-to-face with Laviolette.

While all this took place, poor Pierre McGuire who was “Between the Glass” had no idea what do with himself. Do I look down? Up? What do I do with my arms?

I died laughing like I was watching Louie CK stand-up, cause I probably would’ve been doing the same thing, given that I am also capable of much awkwardness. Here’s Pierre in all his glory, completely unsure of everything, arms at his side, mostly trying not to watch for some reason:

“No no, carry on, I’m just thinking of something else…..” (“Happy place happy place happy place“)

“You guys see me right? I’m right here. It’s so awkward when you fight in front of me.”

“Oh, foo. They’re not listening to me. Hey look, a shiny thing. ….Sigh…I wonder what I did wrong.”

Good times.

We should also note that none of these screenshots were even close to being the best picture from last night’s heated contest:

Yeah, there’s your winner. Whatcha gonna do, brother?

  1. I actually felt a bit sorry for Pierre, and that’s saying a *lot*! Maybe, just maybe, we won’t get him between the glass for the Penguins/Flyers playoff series? A girl can dream…

  2. God I love Scott Hartnell. Wonder what Hulk Hogan there was bellowing.

  3. I like the girl behind “Hulk” cracking up.

  4. Pierre? Awkward? Never.

  5. Yea, that whole episode was just so fucking entertaining (and that’s saying a lot as I was so pissed about the Pens play and losing to the hated Flyers) – made us pull out the ol’ Slap Shot DVD for this year’s viewing last night.

    The Hulk guy is a man named Cy Clark (however it’s Malkamania not Hulkamania), and not to be a downer but he had been battling cancer. So, beloved by team, fixture at games. That pic is priceless! I love Hartnell too – just can’t help it, he’s too awesome.

  6. To be fair here.. what could he really have done? And also he really, really made me laugh (although as usual with him, not on purpose).

  7. Shouda taken off the headset and held the microphone up between them and turned it on.Wow!!!! Can’t hardly wait playoffs.

  8. The only thing that could have made it better is if Marty Turco was sitting there making faces at Pierre. God they should just let Roenick stand there and fire off one liners, even when play is going on. Better yet have Roenick there just to goof on Pierre.

  9. Why Granato and Laviolette didn’t both jump in the box and throw bombs that “accidentally” caught Pierre in the crossfire about 43 times is beyond me. They should have done it for the people!

  10. You know what you do? You take your mike and point it up.
