Mollerisms: Calling A Hat Trick

Welcome to Mollerisms. FloridaPanthers.com takes a look at some of the best goal calls of 560 WQAM radio play-by-play man Randy Moller from the 2011-12 season.

Moller's interesting goal calls actually date back to the 2007-08 season where he used calls such as "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" and "Top Shelf Where Mrs. Moller Keeps The Peanut Butter". They took on a whole new meaning at the start of the 2008-09 season. While doing a crossover show with Dan Lebatard, Lebatard asked if the crew at 790 The Ticket could make suggestions for goal calls. Then from there it branched out to listeners making suggestions. Randy started using memorable one-liners from movies, songs and just about anything else. Lines such as "We've landed on the moon" from Dumb and Dumber, "We're going to need a bigger boat" from Jaws as well as Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me" have been used.

Every Monday during the off-season we will introduce a Mollerism as Moller calls a goal the only way he knows how.

First up is a hat trick on all levels as Moller has three distinct calls for Kris Versteeg's first career hat trick, achieved in Winnipeg against the Jets on November 10, 2011.

Versteeg got things rolling as he tipped in an original shot from Tomas Fleischmann past Ondrej Pavelec just 7:14 into the game. The goal, which was the winger's first in six games, allowed Moller to spout out "Oh You Hoser" following the goal.

The first year Panther doubled the Panthers lead with 2:33 left in the opening period as he followed up on his own rebound for a power play goal. Moller used rapper LL Cool J's song "Mama Said Knock You Out" as a basis to shout out "Mama Gonna Knock You Out" following his second of the night.

After setting up Jason Garrison for a 3-0 lead in the second, Versteeg capped off a four point night with a fantastic individual effort as he scored an empty netter while falling to the ice after being hooked. His third of the night capped off a 5-2 victory for the Panthers and allowed Moller to cap off his goal call with one of his signature goal calls "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner"

Enjoy.
