Dancing With HenrikNovember 13, 2008
Today’s practice notes on sabres.com contained this gem:
The Sabres enjoyed a laugh at the expense of defenseman Henrik Tallinder following practice.
As players entered the locker room, a video of the blueliner’s goal looped to Chubby Checker’s version of “The Twist.”
Tallinder scored a goal for the first time since March 15, 2008 in last night’s win against the Blues, and celebrated with an unconventional move.
“He’s never going to want to score again” Clarke MacArthur quipped after seeing the video.
“I just can’t stop watching it,” Jason Pominville added. “It’s hilarious.”
Here’s the link to the video of Tallinder’s little jig. Twist music not included. I can just imagine Pommers standing in front of that ginormous TV set in the locker transfixed by the whole thing.
Tallinder didn’t do a bad job of moving his hips and staying in rhythm. Could an appearance on Dancing With the Stars be in his future, once his playing career is over?
Also worth noting from the team today is that Peters was given the ceremonial pigeon for his performance in last night’s game.
And Timmy has a bruised chest, but no head trauma after last night’s hit from Tkachuk. I would bet that he doesn’t play tomorrow but plays on Saturday, but only time will tell.
