Ott and Halpern were teammates in Dallas for a few years, so hopefully this was more of a "hey buddy" thing. Hey buddy! Here's my tongue! Why don't you wipe off your visor instead of waiting for the puck drop!


Halpern would win the faceoff. Maybe Ott was too busy blocking out the boos of Sabres fans.
