Taunting Turco

No, this isn't the name of my new band. Well, ok it is.
I was fortunate enough to go to the Ducks game last night. Game 5 in the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Dallas Stars. The Ducks were down 3-1 in the series, so it was a must-win game. Fortunately, they did win, and Game 6 will be played Sunday in Dallas.

Some interesting things happened. At one point, Anaheim's Corey Perry crashed into Dallas Goalie Marty Turco, after which Turco grabbed Perry's face and appeared to choke him for a minute. The crowd didn't like this, so every time Turco touched the puck afterwards there was a nice round of booing.

Then everyone started chanting "Turco, Turco" in an effort to get into his head. A Ducks game is really the only chance I have to join in with the mob and taunt a helpless millionaire goalie. So I did.

It was a great game. Check out the highlights, courtesy of Ducks TV:
