Realizing that they were participating in a nationally televised game, the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils opted to make their sport proud on Monday night.
The coaches involved set the tone for this embarrassment early by needlessly jawing at one another prior to the puck dropping, and then the players finished it off with more than a minute of everyone doing their best Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather impressions.
When it was all said and done, the blood had to be scraped off the ice before everyone could proceed with the actual game.
Not that it matters, but the Rangers ended up winning 4-2.
