Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan both appeared on Fox Sports 1's Crowd Goes Wild yesterday, discussing the Stadium Series, the Del Zotto trade, and John Tortorella, among other things. It was especially fun watching McDonagh try to keep a straight face while Regis Philbin asked him questions despite clearly knowing nothing about hockey. You can watch that here. The truly entertaining part, however, came in the finals minutes of the show, as Stepan and McDonagh were asked to shoot at targets placed around an Islanders fan. Stepan appeared to be focused on hitting as many targets as possible, though he did throw a high-rising fastball towards the end. McDonagh, however, appeared to be aiming for a different target.
Do you think they planned similar outfits? Or did their mommies fly in from Minnesota and force them to match?
As an aside, I'm going to give a shoutout to Crowd Goes Wild in general. It's possibly my favorite sports show on TV, largely because it's the antithesis of everything you find on ESPN. Compared to garbage like First Take where Skip Bayless literally thinks he's doing important investigative journalism while debating what color Tim Tebow should paint his house, the show doesn't take itself or sports seriously at all. Instead, it has former tennis pro and now comedian Michael Kosta dedicate an entire segment to punting and other stupid, ironic stuff like that. Even in all this chaos and stupor, they still manage to do a better job covering hockey than ESPN does. So yeah. Watch it.

I usually don't do this but I have 2 tix to tongiht's game vs. STL and have to work late and can't make game. I will sell them for less than face. I have tix electronically and can email them. Section 217, row 3 seats 11 & 12 - Rangers shoot twice, TVs a row in front...they're very good seats.
Face is $76 a piece, I will part with them for $50 because fuck my boss. email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. Sorry if this is breaking some sort of blog rule.
Man, that was hilarious when Mc was shooting. At my age and extreme level of sophistication ;) I thought I was immune to "man getting hit by football" stuff, but that was really funny.
Who am I kidding....LOL!
Hilarious that McD hit the guy in the nuts at least a few times!
Geez, Stepan cant hit targets even without an opposing player in his face.
@Scott_from_Jersey I would take them off your hands in a heartbeat if i didn't live in south florida.
@Scott_from_JerseyNot at all. Hopefully someone wants them.
@HotfreakAnother male taking it in the groin will never not be funny.
if it was del zotto he would of hit regis multiple times on the chin with his balls!!!
Hey Kevin, Del Zotto jokes stopped being relevant on January 22nd, 2014.
That's it. Keep the flame alive, man.
@Scott_from_Jersey Scott do you mind if i share on my Facebook your info? I have lots of friends that are Rangers fans on Facebook that might want to purchase your tickets.
