The Green Man playoff arms race that started in Vancouver turned Teal and Orange as it made its way down to San Jose. While receiving a fraction of the airtime on CBC in Canada that the Green Men were awarded, the Teal Man duo and Barracuda Three (orange) carried on a fantastic running theater next to the Canucks penalty box in game 3. The group broke out a flower bonnet for a first period penalty, and then utilized an inspired Kevin Hasselhoff swimwear photo when former Shark and current German Christian Ehrhoff made his way to the box.

The neoprened gaggle went into overdrive when Kevin Bieksa made a pair of trips to the box in the second period. They had a hand drawn portrait of Bieksa, a fair representation that also included some constructive criticism. Bieksa responded with a squirt of water through the glass. Asked after the period if they believe they had gotten into the emotional defenseman’s head, “absolutely,” one of the Teal Men replied. “We want to thank him for acknowledging and squirting water on us, it let’s us know we are doing our job well.”

The group was not finished. They reprised game 2′s penalty box display in Vancouver, with a Teal Man flashing neoprene and a thong to Ryan Kesler in the third period. They also displayed a helpful ‘No Diving’ sign when Burrows joined Kesler in the box, and a pair of teal plastic heads (insert pun here) for an unknown reason. Shame on Canada for their disproportionate penalty box antic censorship. They may have been organized plants in San Jose instead of the diehard fans in Vancouver, but it was pulled off about as well as possible in a critical game 3. Their best performance of the night came with no penalty. Joe Thornton registered a hit at the blueline, and the teal and orange neoprened crew on the glass offered #19 a polite golf clap in unison. Awesome.
