Penguins announce finalists for new Mike Lange catchphrase

Chaz Palla | Tribune-Review
Mike Lange, play-by-play broadcaster for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and partner Phil Bourque watch practice Friday, May 12, 2017, at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex.

There will be a lot on the line Tuesday night when the Penguins face off against the Washington Capitals.

The Penguins can inch closer to the Metropolitan Division-leading Capitals.

Evgeni Malkin could reach 1,000 career points.

And the new Mike Lange catchphrase will be announced.

Five finalists of the “Name that Lange” contest to find the latest Lange-ism were announced Monday morning. The five finalists were given tickets to Tuesday’s game, and Lange, the Hall of Fame broadcaster, will announce his winner during the contest.

S&T Bank and the Penguins Radio Network started the contest in December.

The early fan favorite on Twitter has been “Get the boat ready, Bourquey! We’re headed to Bogota!”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
