Sure, playing hockey with a hand grenade proves you've got balls of steel.
However, removing the safety pin proves you've got brains the size of a peanut.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

[okay, trying for less AWOL, more Wargaming...]

Despite appearances to the contrary, the Red Army hockey team's attempt to relieve Leningrad via a Lake Ladoga expeditionary force was a partial success, with the players using their woolen hockey socks and sweaters as a means of transporting much needed fresh water to the denizens of the encircled city. The team was able to break in, then out, by accurate salvos of wicked wrist shots to the groin of opposing German troops. General Guderian was incensed when told that the trainload of protective cups destined for the Leningrad blockaders was languishing in a marshaling yard in Southern Italy.

Of note to modern enthusiasts of the game, two of Vladislav Tretiak's uncles can be seen in the photo.

The "C&H" logo of the Montreal Canadiens has been said to stand for "Club de Hockey" and "Canadiens & Habitants", but it really harkens back to their first organized game that ended up, "Cold as Hell"!
