It’s that time again, the most important post of any series, particularly two cities so in love with the suds.
Take One Drink:
If either teams power play is mentioned.
If “The Pronger effect” is mentioned.
Mark Recchi throws a bigger check than the two hundred pound defenseman running at him.
Danny Carcillo and or Brad Marchand are seen chirping after a whistle or from the bench.
Take Two Drinks
Each time last years series is mentioned.
Anyone on either fourth line finishes a game with more than 9 minutes.
One or more commentators mentions cheesesteak or chowder.
Take Three Drinks
Every time someone mentions award nomination.
When the clip of Lucic checking van Reimsdyk through the glass is shown.
The Richards on Krejci hit is shown.
A coach or player says “we just need to be better in our own end” after a bad period or game.
Take Four Drinks
When the starting goaltender for Philadephia is not announced before game time.
A pinkhat asks about the shootout.
A lineup change on the fourth line is talked about for more than thirty seconds.
There is a “History” ad for the last game shown before the start of the current one.
Skip your next drink:
If you find yourself getting hopeful that either team might have a great chance on a powerplay.
You find yourself unable to scream coherently at a pinkhat.
You start explaining a simple rule like “icing” and take longer than two minutes.
