Troy Brouwer’s return to the score sheet for the first time since March 30th came in three parts. First was the power play goal, a zippy shot from the slot set up by Mike Ribeiro. Then came the empty-netter, in spite of Alex Semin’s cross-check, sealing the deal with only seconds to spare. And finally came the trash talk: Troy Brouwer letting ex-teammate and international man of mystery Alex Semin know what he thought of — well something, I guess. Lipreading is not our bag. If lipreading is your bag, give it a try in the comments below.

No really: what is Brouwer saying there? It could be anything, as these guys have a bit of a history. Of all Semin’s ex-teammates, Brouwer was first to say how over the break-up he already was. “It was tough to lose his scoring ability when he wanted to play,” Brouwer told the Washington Post. “But all in all, I think we’ve been doing well without him.”
Six wins in a row, leading the division, and smiling all the way to the postseason. Yeah. Troy is right.
