Japers' Rink Glossary

In a blatant rip off of The Battle of Alberta, Abel to Yzerman and others, here's the ever-evolving Japers' Rink Glossary, designed to assist you in understanding just what and whom the hell I'm talking about (to be pinned at right). Additions are always welcome, so if I'm missing anything, straighten me out.


Baby Face - Eric Staal

Baby Food - Martin Gerber

Butt Fugly - Rod Brind'Amour

Candycanes - The Caps' Southeast Division rivals from Carolina

Frodo - Martin St. Louis

GMGM - Caps' General Manager George McPhee

Lurch - former Cap (thankfully) blueliner Ivan Majesky

MHM - The mainstream hockey media

Neanderchuk - now-retired Lightning Captain Dave Andreychuk

Princess - Matt Pettinger

Rags - The Caps' former Patrick Division rivals from Gotham

Rico Fatass - Keith Tkachuk

Sidney Crosby Hat Trick - A goal, an assist and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the same game (coined by Decline the Penalty)

The Goal - Alex Ovechkin's twisting-sprawling-physics-defying tally against Phoenix on January 17, 2006, shown here:

The Toe - Tim Taylor, so named for the toe-in-the-crease no-goal that helped the Caps past the Bruins in the 1998 Playoffs.

Whalers - The Caps' Southeast Division rivals from Carolina
