It’s not like the preseason game between Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay on Sept. 29 needed any promotion to sell out—the Cambria County War Memorial Arena in Johnstown, PA seats just 4,001 fans, after all—but that didn’t stop the Penguins from having a little fun with it anyway.

Game of character: our ultimate hockey movie All-Star Team

The rink, after all, is is part of hockey lore as the home of the Charlestown Chiefs in the 1977 classic Slap Shot, a film that every player worth his salt has memorized front to back. And Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-André Fleury can prove it. 

The Pens keeper and Dan Potash of ROOT Sports were enlisted for a remake of the classic opening scene from the film in which French-Canadian goaltender Denis Lemieux explains the rules of the game to broadcaster Jim Carr. And Fleury ownz it. He ownnnzzz it.

Anyone else jonesing for a sequel with Sidney Crosby as Reg Dunlop and Phil Kessel as Ned Braden?
