Jimmy Fallon shot pumpkin pie at Henrik Lundqvist on The Tonight Show

On Wednesday night's episode the The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, a viewer wrote in asking the host to combine the best parts of November: Thanksgiving and NHL hockey. Fallon did not disappoint, enlisting New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist in the endeavour. 

Lundqvist hopped between the pipes on set and assumed the position as Fallon fired 10 miniature pumpkin pies at him in :10. The pies came fast and furious, with one even catching him up high, but thankfully the dapper Swede escaped without having sullied his suit, his good looks or his reputation, stopping everything that came his way. 

POWER RANKINGS: Rangers on the rise with win streak

Looks like tabletop pies might not the solution to the NHL's goal scoring woes, either.
