      Oh[lund] Face - The look and accompanying crowd noise when Mattias Ohlund decides to wreck someone's life (see Kessel, Phil)

      Dunno if you want to include this one but I came up with it when he clocked Zetterberg

              Ref muscles - Kind of like beer muscles. The increase in perceived toughness, cheap gestures directed at the crowd and/or apparent willingness to fight when the presence of officials makes the likelihood of an altercation impossible. Players with ref muscles will often turtle when a fair fight presents itself. Prominent examples: Alexander Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, Chris Neil, Sean Avery, Jarko Ruutu.

                This is too perfect (sadly enough)

                      Revenge for Downie - justification used for any sort of late hit / cheap shot / stick foul / punch against the Lightning's Steve Downie, a.k.a. as retaliation for his suspendable actions as a member of the Flyers. Revenge for Downie is not limited to players who were teammates of the injured parties during said incidents, and does not warrant a penalty. Usually followed by a gesture like this:

                            I humbly submit a few for the general board lexicon from recent times:

                            Matt Barzal's Game Star - For when Barzal played a completely invisible and inconsequential playoff game, yet was rewarded by the media over Lightning players who had dominated the game. (See Eddie Olczyk's Impartiality)

                            Eddie Olczyk's Impartiality - his sucking off of Matt Barzal in the Islanders series (and related ignorance of a wildly superior Brayden Point) was an epically embarrassing example of impartiality

                            Tyler Johnson's wrist - the breaking of which in 2015 apparently robbed TJ of not only his shot, but also his wheels, defensive and playmaking ability

                            Stamkos' Legendary 2:47 - Nuff said

                            #KillornDown - Gravity is a harsh mistress for Alex Killorn

                            Dead Money Trio - meant to describe players who aren't living up to their contract terms. Rotating membership has included: Ryan Callahan (injured), Alex Killorn, Tyler Johnson (injured), Brayden Coburn, Matt Carle(?), Ondrej Palat (injured)

                            Killorn's 20 Goals - once hit, ushered in an apocalyptic global pandemic and economic collapse

                                Some classics throughout this thread. Would love to see all of DannyBolt’s art, too. So good.
