Video: The Bruins-Red Wings introduction outtakes you’re looking for

Nov 25, 2011, 2:26 PM EDT

If you missed it during today’s Thanksgiving Showdown between Detroit and Boston, the team’s top lines introduced themselves on camera to the fans. As you might expect with pro athletes trying to do work on camera, there were a few flubs.

Watch as Milan Lucic introduces David Krejci and Nathan Horton while not remembering where exactly his linemates are from. Meanwhile, Todd Bertuzzi tells you about his “Wed Wings” linemates Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen.

    Actually got to see a little of that game — first hockey I’ve seen in years (I don’t have TV, but you folks livestreamed it, so I watched the 1st third before going out). The TV part of it’s gotten much better than it used to be, so it’s more watchable. I still don’t get the culture of the governance: one guy got flagged for “interference” when it seemed he hadn’t done anything. As in football, you can rearrange the vertebrae of someone’s spine or cause a concussion and be praised for good play but if you stand in the way, hold, or pull on a shirt, you must be punished. And these guys get thrown out of the game for 2 minutes! Imagine if that were so in the NFL: “holding, the Giants will play with 10 men for the next 2 minutes.” Bizarre.

    In this respect, sports reflects our culture at large: none of the bankers who destroyed our financial system and caused incalculable suffering for millions have been arrested; but some 4,800 protesters who set up tents in parks have been.
