After a hard fought battle against the inferior Boston Bruins, the Senators have some time off to heal some bruises, broken bones, and broken hearts. Their next opponent is the much overrated New York Islanders!! What's that? Oh.....The New York Rangers! The series starts Thursday night, and I know many players are biting at the chomp to get going already. How do they prepare themselves for another gruelling series? Everyone is their own unique individual. Some like to rest, and some are a little......let's say strange.
Kyle Turris: On his off days, Kyle likes to visit the Real Canadian Superstore where he spends hours on end smelling the freshly baked breads. But when they ask if he'd like to sample them, he says "pfffffffttttt" and walks
Bobby Ryan: I heard Bobby Ryan called up Wayne Gretzky and they practiced trick shots at the CTC. "Off the scoreboard, off the zamboni, off the far post, and into the empty net" said Wayne. Bobby did it and then they celebrated by having a nice McDonalds Burger! But then Gretzky choked hard, and Bobby had to give him the heimleich maneuver as he turned blue, everyone just screaming
Craig Anderson: Craig likes to work on his speed so he goes out and chases wild geese off highway 7 in Carleton Place. The only thing that sucked though was when he got jumped by a coyote from behind and got dragged off into the woods unconscious
Mike Hoffman: Mike rubs oil on his chiseled body and then walks around shirtless at Bayshore shopping Center, trying on jeans and having a nice Booster Juice
Mark Stone: In order to prepare for the time difference in New York, Mark stays up watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer until 2am and then gets up at 3am. He's just so dedicated
Clarke MacArthur: Him and Dion go fishing up at Mackerel Bay. They are best friends. But then Dion catches the biggest Bass and Clarke gets a little jealous. "Big deal Dion, that was luck. Fishing is all about luck" said Clarke. "Yeah?? How about this for luck?" Phaneuf says and he pours lighter fluid on the boat and lights her up.
Dion Phaneuf: see Clarke MacArthur
Erik Karlsson: He is at the General Hospital getting his heel checked. "Listen Erik, your heel is literally broken. You shouldn't walk let alone play hockey. I'm gonna recommend to your....HEYYYY HEYYY WHAT ARE YOU DOING HEEYYY KSHDYEEGEBNS" screams the doctor as he is gently put to sleep
Chris Wideman: on Tuesday night, Guy Boucher was awoken to the song from the Bodyguard just blaring, he looks outside to see this
Jared Cowen: "Would you like fries with that ma'am? I'm gonna have to ask my manager. GREG?? DO WE HAVE ANY SPICY CURLY FRIES LEFT??"
Ryan Dzingel: Ryan puts a cardboard cutout of Lundqvist in front of the net and practices his breakaways. When he scores he screams "I DID IT!!" and the crowd roars. And then he wakes up
Guy Boucher: Guy likes to make Marc Crawford watch Total Recall, the Colin Farrell version, and then makes him write a 10 page thesis on it. But when Marc hands it in, he burns it to the ground without even reading it
Jean-Gabriel Pageau- He likes to watch his hat trick game against Montreal on repeat and then he goes outside and forces himself to stare at the sun until his eyes bleed. Not sure how this gets him ready?
