Earlier today, Joe Thornton caused a minor stir when he revealed how he would celebrate after scoring four goals in a game. We won't tell you exactly what he said, but we can provide a graphical representation.

HOW IS THIS BETTER?!?!
Big thanks to @WheelingProbs for the photo! In an attempt to find more comedy gold, we asked Ottawa Senators players how they would celebrate a four goal performance. Their answers may surprise you!


Cory Conacher: "After the fourth goal, I'd be all, 'Yo, someone check my blood sugar, because that goal was SWEET!'."

Zack Smith: "Whoa, I don't think it would be a good idea for me to score all my goals in one game. Better to break it up a bit."

Chris Phillips: "This would never happen. I give out free beer at my brewery every time I score. I'm running a business, not a charity!"

Matt Kassian: "Man, if I scored four goals, what would they even call it? A 'Matt Trick'? Hmm, actually that's pretty good. I'm going to tweet that..."

Eric Gryba: "I'd mount the head of the goalie on the wall over my fireplace, as I do after I snipe anything. Wait, did you say 'goals' or 'goalies'?"

Jean-Gabriel Pageau: "I'm supposed to celebrate after only four goals now?"

Robin Lehner: "I do not understand why you have not yet asked me this question."

Colin Greening: "This actually happened to me back when I was playing for Cornell. If it happened now, I'd probably make a joke about how the number of goals I'd scored was the same as my GPA at Cornell. Did I mention that I went to Cornell?"

Erik Condra: "Ha ha ha. Very funny, guys..."

Mika Zibanejad: "I think I'd just go right back out there and play hard and try to get that fifth goal. This is a competitive league, and you never want to relax or be too comfortable. That's what being a professional is all about. Um, tell Mr. Murray I said that."
