Pittsburgh Penguins play-by-play announcer Mike Lange is close to finding a new catchphrase. The Penguins unveiled the five finalists for Lange to use during broadcasts.

Pens fans have grown to love hearing "scratch my back with a hacksaw" and other eccentric phrases from Lange. The Hall of Famer has made these unique phrases famous among hockey fans. Lange will now pick from the final group that were submitted by fans as part of a contest posted by the Penguins in mid-February.

Even though only one fan will be able to say the Hall of Famer is using his catchphrase on-air, the Pens will give all of the five finalists an all-access pass to the game against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday March 12th. Lange will announce the winner on the broadcast, which can be heard on 105.9 The X at 7 p.m.
