Pens-Caps ratings soar as Nintendo’s Mario, ref show up for Game 7


Despite the disappointment of finally drawing fans outside of hockey for what turned into a game seven Penguins blowout, Versus still managed to squeeze out record ratings from last night's game. 

Shortly after the first stoppage of play in the second period, Mario, eight-time MVP of Nintendo's Ice Hockey, scurried onto the ice and immediately stole the puck from Pittsburgh's Miroslav Satan, launching a 103 mph slapshot just beyond the reach of Pens goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, shattering the glass behind him, and finally bringing the packed arena to their feet.

One of the skinny guys (not pictured) made an equally popular appearance late in the third, weaving through traffic and scoring a garbage goal for the Caps.  However, he was soon knocked unconscious after skating next to Hal Gill, who breathed in his direction.
