Video: Jimmy Fallon thinks Matt Niskanen is bad at darts or something

Apr 23, 2014, 4:33 PM EDT

Poor Matt Niskanen. He was even asked about it today.

“That’s all in good fun,” he said, per the Toronto Sun. “Nobody ever said I was the best looking, so that’s fine. A few teammates made sure they let me know this morning.

“I don’t know if it was an angle or a shadow, but I do look cross-eyed for sure.”

PS — Which ’80’s skiing movie do you think Marchand would’ve been in? I vote for Hot Dog.

    Jimmy Fallon sucks…just not the least bit funny.

    • strictlythedanks - Apr 23, 2014 at 5:28 PM

      You can say you don’t like him but when a guy is hosting the Tonight Show and drawing in millions of viewers several times a week, labeling him as not funny is incorrect.

        its all in the eye of the beholder

      Fallon isnt a bad late night host, he is just a terrible interviewer

    He looks like Shawn Michaels in that photo. Hey, he was the ladies man!

    Was that all Bruin or Penguin players or did I miss someone? Not very good research by the ol Jimmy Fallon Crew

      They coulda had a field day with Brett Burns photo.

    i’m sure niskanen cares … judgement from a no talent buffoon like fallon … what an indictment …?

    i’m curious as to when fallon having a guy like david beckham on, then smashing eggs onto each-other’s heads passed as humour [ the decline of the american empire in full colour network-wide ]

    this while a band more sycophant than musician and a laugh track and like-minded sheep in the crowd roar on cue

    where’s jay … when did being number one bring cause to be removed for this new brand of idiots’ humour

    it’s the same at the oscars … what a total dog’s breakfast that’s become … helen, the embittered lesbian man hater … grab me a vomit bag

      Being made fun of on late night TV has been going on for 40+ years since Carson took over the show. Pretty sure Niskanen isn’t too bothered by it.

    So I’m guessing u guys think Conan obrian is funny lol

  7. opattytheirishrover - Apr 23, 2014 at 5:28 PM

    I had a strong urge to paste some knuckles across his biscuit eater. Just for being annoying. This lass is not funny to me in the slightest.

    I’ve never wanted to badly to get a running start to jump front snap kick a dude in the berries.

    What happened?!?

    No research at all friends, and I think his audience is just giving him sympathy laughs.

    • hockeyflow33 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:35 PM

      Ummm, what?

    • thomasvanek - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:10 PM

      Am I the only one imagining the Lucky Charms guy?

  8. opattytheirishrover - Apr 23, 2014 at 5:28 PM

    But I’m sure he’s a good guy and all.

    red skelton jack benny sid caesar bob hope milton berle phyllis diller joan rivers carol burnett harvey korman tim conway billy crystal martin short johnny carson david letterman jay leno anybody from sctv a rare few from snl and anybody from just for laughs and even in his moments, ricky gervais were and are funny

    all those transient clowns from late late night, catering to nighthawks and drunks trying to drink hangovers into oblivion are not funny

    television humour has become too much about the comics’ real world persona rather than the comics’ comedic persona

    roll the channels

    NBC shamelessly trying to plug jimmy fallons show…

    • taytay099 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:18 PM

      This was also shown last night on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada.

      • strictlythedanks - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:21 PM

        cbc, desperately trying to plug nbcs shows……

  11. gbart22 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:40 PM

    Those were genuinely not funny

    • chanceoffleury - Apr 23, 2014 at 8:29 PM

      Agreed. I’m a pretty big fan of Fallon, too. But I didn’t even laugh at all. The whole “superlative” skit is one of my least favorites that he does. I just never find any of them that funny.

  12. ejheim62 - Apr 23, 2014 at 6:59 PM

    Oh Man, “Hot Dog – the Movie” video clip. There’s an oldie, a forgotten oldie but fun movie. Awesome clip.

  13. csilojohnson - Apr 23, 2014 at 7:19 PM

    Guess we all know who is of the 60+ demo posting on pht now….

    • ibieiniid - Apr 24, 2014 at 3:14 PM
