Hockey Hilarity: #HartnellDownNoMore?

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more!

Claude Giroux is awesome, even with a creeper 'stache

Even with lockout, 2012 a headline-packed year for Flyers

Scott Hartnell’s Charity Sends Ten Snider Hockey Participants To First Annual #Hartnelldown Hockey Camp

It started as a joke, a gimmick created by a Flyers fan who noticed that his favorite player had a penchant for falling while he was on the ice. And now, #Hartnelldown has turned into a phenomenon. Two seasons ago, fan Seth Hastings decided to keep a count of how many times Scott Hartnell fell during the year. The #hartnelldown hashtag became a big thing on Twitter amongst Flyers fans, a shared amusement over Hartnell’s clumsiness.
