Steve Ott has discovered a new and gentle way to instigate opponents during Thursday’s Sabres – Canadiens game. Instead of pushing or punching or even biting, Buffalo’s Ott has decided to start licking opponents. As Montreal’s Jeff Halpern learned the weird way, one of hockey’s dirty little secrets is that the visors on helmets are grape-flavored, but no one wants to wear a visor because licking opponents’ visors would be near-impossible and almost always awkward.
Always a good feeling.
It’s a war out there.
