Considering the lockout is looming and we are all trying to find ways to occupy our time, I thought it would be interesting to post up what you think is among the strangest moments in hockey.

I had a few in mind, but the one that really stood out was the rat fiasco that went on in Florida during the 96 playoffs. Whenever a Panthers player scored fans would bombard the ice with rubber rats in the hundreds. It caused massive delays that easily surpassed hat cleanup after a hat trick.

If a recall correctly, that was the year of the rat and it began after a player had killed a rat in the locker room by shooting it into a wall. They went on a winning streak thereafter and the trend caught on.

Video below, chaos ensues.



What odd moments do you remember from past seasons?

ha ha, I love that Franzen video. I watch it from time to time just to get a chuckle. And also... your right!! Where the heck did the second ref come from??! He was like Kanes guardian angel, materializing from behind Kane to protect him from the mean bully Franzen! lol

This was also odd, the Flyers Lightning having their strategy conflict and causing multiple delays in the recent playoff series. This occurred three or four more times later in the game and the clock kept running.

How about Tie Domi fighting that drunken fan in the penalty box?

Or how about the time Gilles Gratton (the weirdest guy in hockey history) first unveiled his tiger mask.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I was gonna post up that Tie Domi incident next, I lived in Philly when that happened and it was huge news for a while. The fan actually fell through the glass of the penalty box after Domi was spraying fans with his water bottle. He seemed to have no problem pounding the guys face in until the refs broke it up lol. The drunken fan later challenged Tie to a charity boxing match, thereafter Domi declined and called him an idiot publicly.

Tie Domi will forever be one of my all-time favorite goons.

Friday, March 10, 1995: torrential rains, causing the flooding of the Guadalupe River and of all approach roads in the San Jose area, resulting in the postponement of the Detroit-San Jose game, the only rainout in NHL history.

No Penalty



No MANDATORY Suspension...Malkin gets suspended, Wings go up 3-0 in series...can't have the better team win now can we?

Yes I am still bitter...Thanks Uncle Gary, not only did you hand Pit the Cup, but you have once AGAIN caused a work stoppage in the NHL...

Can't find a decent video clip, but I'm sure we all have it burned into our minds.

The 2008 Cup-winning goal was strange. Probably not the first time the Cup was won by an ass, but certainly it was strange that it was the ass of the opposing goalie. Thanks, Fleury.

OK, a few things:

1. I think this is edited (I mean, beyond the obvious). Or it was just done for the cameras.

2. I actually like the message Wilson's trying to get across; it's really fairly bad-ass. It's just, he doesn't really get it across. Because, well, he's kind of a boob*.

3. I feel like Dale Hunter would've done a better job with the material.

"So there was this crazy Indian who thought he was a horse. Or something. [crickets] Anyway, the point is: KILL THE WINGS!!! [much roaring, beating of chests, etc.]


4. Good book.

"Don't be a afraid to lose" is pretty hard to beat.

One I've tried to find several times is from around '94 or '95, Brett Hull scores a hat-trick in St.Louis, and it just happens to be hat night. Cue 20,000 white baseball caps raining down on the ice, it was like a blizzard.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

This is actually more common than you might think.

Wasn't that the Finals that the Pens had 7 skaters on the ice one time and didn't get a "too many" call??? I think that would qualify.
