Pretty funny stuff here. Watch as Jimmy Fallon hands out high-school style superlatives to some of the NHL's funniest looking guys. Can't really argue this Brad Marchand one, can you?
Check out Islanders rookie Justin Johnson get the best of Sabres enforcer John Scott during the Isles' 4-3 win in their season finale against on Sunday in Buffalo.
Despite being oversized, Johnson looked like Tie Domi in his prime as he sent the 31-year-old veteran defenceman Scott to the ice after the pair dropped the gloves just two minutes into the game. MSG cameras caught the two jawing at each other in a rather calm manner during warmups before they went at it.
You've got to love Scott's demeanor is a the loss. He couldn't do anything but smile after taking the beating. Tough recognize tough. If that's not indicative of hockey culture, I don't know what is.
Johnson, a 32-year-old forward from Alaska, was called up from the AHL to make his debut in Friday's 3-2 win over the Devils. Johnson, who's been known to drop the gloves, accumulated 575 PIMs in 151 career AHL games and 669 PIMs in 190 ECHL games.
Check out the selfie taken by Mitch Callahan, a right-winger for the Grand Rapids Griffins of AHL, an affiliate of the Red Wings. Callahan suffered the busted mouth while taking a puck to the face during Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Iowa Wild.
That looks like it hurt A LOT. Might wanna put some tussin on that shit.

How's this for awesome? After the Buffalo Sabres pulled off a blockbuster deal to send goaltender Ryan Miller to St. Louis, they had a void at the position and were forced to have the team's former video scout, Ryan Vinz, suit up for Friday's game against the Sharks.
This has gotta be the fastest ascension to glory for a video guy since Erik Spoelstra went from cuttin' tape to winning championships with LeBron as the coach of the Miami Heat.
The 28-year-old Vinz, who had no college or professional playing experience, didn't see any action on Friday as he rode the pine, but he had the best seat in the house to watch the Sabres top the Sharks, 4-2.
