Maxim Laperrière Gets Winner in Shootout


Look ESPN, I know you have given up on hockey and everything, but would it kill you to get the name right of the guy who got the winner? For fuck's sake, the back of his jersey was clearly visible earlier in the highlights, AND after you showed him scoring. Can you even read?

Gotta love the slo-mo then explosion move though. Mad Max, shootout king. When did that happen?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! I hate it when they call him Laperriere. I think the world will collapse in confusion if (god forbid) he ever goes to Colorado.

No, they can't read. The ESPNers are illiterate.

Last year (or maybe the year before) one of theme kept calling Anton Volchenkov of the Senators "Volcanov." It's not even that difficult, because Russian uses a different alphabet so they are spelled phonetically in English!

I've often heard Jeff Gorges and Kovalov too.

That wasn't the only mistake either. It wasn't Brian Lee that avoided the Komi hit, it was Spezza.
