Last night Matt Hendricks scored for the first time since the mid-Triassic period. He was happy. Hendy danced like no one was watching for his goal celebration and then gave one of the best post-game interviews of all-time with Al Koken. Hendricks played to the crowd, smiled ear-to-ear, cracked jokes, challenged Triple H to a ladder match, and then threw in a “Playoffs, baby! WOOOO!” at the end.

Make sure to also check out Dan Steinberg’s 1,000 word analysis piece on Hendy’s interview as well.

Thanks to @itsRBMJ for the video.

    I left after 3-star announcement just before the interview, but I don’t remember when I saw such shiny face of the hockey player, especially the Caps one! He looks like glamorous Julia Roberts on the Red Carpet.

    (Considering the time scale of Hendy goals, I don’t know why, but it takes a year to see each frame of the interview, even on csn, probably too many people watching it.)

  • Fan O’The Caps

    For the record it was: “Woohoo”.
