Hockey clichés

I know we don't normally write about hockey much, and talking about Pittsburgh sports teams is sort of anathema around these parts, but I'm watching the Penguins game right now and am hearing some real topnotch sports clichés.

For those of you not familiar with the sport as it appears on television, I'm pleased to report that they mindlessly use "aggressive" a lot and issue the same nonsense about veteran leadership, grit, and other things that have little to do with the actual game being played, as other sports broadcasters do. If these gentlemen talked half as much about scoring and preventing goals as they did about "hits," this might be a better broadcast!
