The Senators’ entertaining, pre-taped rendition of “The Twelve Days Of Christmas” shown on the videoboard naturally had No. 3, Marc Methot, checking it at No. 3.

Of course, his true love gave to him “three hip checks.”

In the fourth minute of the first period Monday, Methot delivered No. 4 to Sidney Crosby, catching the Penguins captain with textbook precision in the slot.

Methot hit Crosby so hard he knocked Pascal Dupuis right out of the game.
