Hockey Terms That Sound Dirty

Listening to Canucks games on the radio, I've noticed quite a few terms that the commentators use while describing the game that sound dirty1, including:
  • "he's got good hands"
  • "he stuffed it in"
  • "poke check"
  • "making moves"
  • "gets his stick in there"
  • "scoring"
  • "two on one"
  • "hitting from behind"
Any other ones that I've missed?

1Proof, yet again, that I have the sense of humour of a 12-year-old boy.

My favourite has always been:

"He couldn't get it up (over the sprawling goaltender)."

You forgot "dipsy doodle" and "pulling the goalie".

That "hitting from behind" term would definitely raise some eyebrows especially for those who aren't familiar at all with this game.
