I did not see the hockey game to which you are referring. However, I did see The Tooth Fairy over the weekend (don't ask) and was reminded that I used to really like hockey. My nephew played when we were both little and I thought it was the coolest game.

Twyla, nuclear grammarian of the Tartan Ostrogoth detective treaty service.

Who were the Ostrogoths, anyway? (I sense a google coming on...)
