Not to hijack your thread, but I had a similarly unexpected run-in. Apparently, the Devils were having some special during Valentines day and a thoughtful husband had purchased the gift for his wife; my co-worker. The NJ Devil came in with flowers and chocolate strawberries. Best Valentine's day ever...for me. Got a picture and everything! LOL
Embellishment should be penalized by a three minute minor. You heard it here first. If there is a corresponding two minute minor to the opposing player, his team will nevertheless go on the pp for one minute. This should take care if any and all incentives to embellish. It's a far shot, but I like the way it sounded in my head.
"As far as you're concerned, watching sports just isn't the same without a little ruckus. Rather than raise the TV volume enough to scare the neighbors, you can get the in-person experience (and yell all you like) with today's deal from The New Jersey Devils National Hockey League team. Pay $29 and get a 100-level seat to watch the December 8th action against those northern nuisances, the Ottawa Senators (a $61 value). Drink it all in -- with an included medium soda and hot dog -- at the Prudential Center in Newark. Go ahead and grab your all-access pass to get loud. We won't blame you if you want let out a little whoop of victory when you click-it-for-ticket."
