Paul MacLean sitting behind Paul MacLean?

Greatest line ever?

... or Eugene Melnyk has been so impressed with the Sens’ turnaround he’s cloned an army of Paul MacLeans.

And for those wanting the truth... http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu ... --nhl.html

Turns out this was just a fan named Mike Watson with a ridiculously striking resemblance to Paul MacLean. From Sportsnet and Ian Mendes:
After introducing myself, I asked Watson, "Do you realize that you've broken Twitter tonight?"

"I don't own a cell phone. But these guys were telling me it's all over the place," Watson replied. His co-workers sitting next to him informed him that he was suddenly a social media darling.

So I immediately asked the question that was on everyone's mind: Was this some sort of publicity stunt? Surely, Watson must have intentionally chosen to sit directly behind the Senators home bench. Either that, or he was a blood relative of the head coach -- which is why he was able to land such prime seats for the home opener.

"These are actually just my company's seats," he responded. "I haven't been to a game here in two years. They usually give the tickets to clients, but I was able to go tonight."
