Top 10 other references for Randy Moller to make

In tribute to the awesomeness that is former NHLer and current Florida Panthers play-by-play man Randy Moller and his pop-culture references after goal celebrations [Greg Wyshynski, Puck Daddy], here's a list of the top 10 other references I'd love to hear in Florida games, followed by a list of top 10 references that could be used more generically. Good for Moller for having some fun with the game. Video's embedded below after the lists; feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments!

Florida games:

10. "Horton beats Brodeur with a slap shot! Have another donut, you fat pig!"

9. "Campbell scores! How 'bout a painting of that one, Warhol!

8. "Lang's carrying the puck through centre and loses it to Bouwmeester. Here comes Bouwmeester flying in all alone, and he beats Price with a low stick-side blast to give the Panthers the win! Jay and Silent Bob strike back!"

7. "McLean scores against Mason! And that's the day the music died!"

6. "And Stewart beats Thomas and scores with a wrist shot! Make it so, Number One!

5. "Stillman comes flying in down the wing, undresses Schenn and beats Toskala glove side! Luke, I am your father!"

4. "And Welch scores with a long slap shot! Start rounding the animals up, 'cause here comes the flood!

3. "Stajan comes in off the wing, embarrasses Ballard with a deke and beats Vokoun stick side. Ballard might want to look into a paper bag after that one.

2. "McCabe scores on his own net and the fans are out to crucify him! Just another moment in the strange life of Bryan."

1. "And Hugo Carpentier beats Anderson top shelf! You hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability. It is the sound of your death."

More generic calls:

10. Someone scores after being hit in the face. "Nobody makes me bleed my own blood!"

9. After a beautiful goal: "Does that blow your mind? That just happened!"

8. After a brutal slash: "He should find himself a safehouse or a relative close by. He should lay low for a while, because he's probably wanted for murder."

7. After a surprising goal: "My brains are going into my feet!"

6. After a big bodycheck against the boards: "YOU! SHALL NOT! PASS!"

5. After an important goal that starts a comeback: "You and I have witnessed many things, but nothing as bodacious as what just happened."

4. After a goal against the Calgary Flames: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning!"

3. After a goal from a tight angle: "That's impossible! Even for a computer!"

2. After a sudden-death overtime goal, in rap: "You might be a king or a little street sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper!"

1. When playing New Jersey or Minnesota and they have the lead: "It's a trap!"
