Jimmy Fallon pulls no punches with Stanley Cup Final superlatives

By Zareen Syed

After the Blackhawks' Tuesday night comeback win, the Lightning might want to come up with their own comebacks... and not just in goals.

In honor of the Stanley Cup Final, funny guy Jimmy Fallon handed out quirky superlatives to a select few Blackhawks and Lightning players on Wednesday night's show.


And as you'd expect, there weren't any "best smile" or "most likely to score a game winning goal" type of recognitions. Instead, Lightning center, Valterri Filppula, was awarded "most likely to spin around in a chair and reveal his evil plan while petting a hairless cat."

Right? Especially after being shut out in the third period of Game 1, he might do exactly that before Saturday.

And on the other end, Marian Hossa's was the weirdest of the bunch: "Most likely to be the guy in prison whose seat you're sitting in." (It's even weirder how easy it is to imagine that.) 

Fallon rolls out an installment of "Tonight Show Superlatives" often and doesn't spare anyone. That being said, he can probably do better than "Emptiest Inside" for Jay Cutler. Check out his take from the 2014 NFL season to see Fallon take a jab at the Bears.

We have contacted the select individuals involved in the incident on Saturday to notify them that they are no longer welcome at our home games. Racist comments and other inappropriate behavior are not tolerated by the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks also wanted to remind fans that they can alert security at the United Center by texting the following to 69050: UCASSIST <SPACE> followed by the seating section, row and a brief description of the issue.
