DETROIT -- “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to Boston sports. During Tuesday’s show, the comedian had a spoof on the NHL awards and three Bruins players were part of the skit.
In his spot titled "Tonight Show Superlatives," Fallon had Brad Marchand winning the award for "Most Likely to Play a Pizza Delivery Guy in an '80s Movie About Skiing."
Marchand did not see the show, but his teammates talked about it at breakfast on Wednesday.
“It was funny to see,” Marchand said. “Any press is good press, right?”
Dougie Hamilton won the award for “Easiest To Replicate As A Bobblehead.”
“I don’t even really know what it means,” Hamilton said. “I guess it’s just cool to be mentioned on that show and chirp too hard.”
Bruins captain Zdeno Chara got the award for “Most Likely To Be Two Humans Sewn Together.”
“It’s pretty funny,” said Bruins forward Milan Lucic of the entire skit. “At the end of the day, we had something to laugh about this morning.”
Lucic’s favorite award was Marchand’s.
“Of the three, that’s probably the best one, especially a pizza delivery boy in an '80s ski movie, that one was the best one out of all of them,” Lucic said.
