Move over, batteries.  Last night, Canadians introduced us to a new projectile weapon: Waffles.

This next part is going to be drenched in thick, syrupy puns- we're warning you now.

After the Flyers toasted the Leafs of Maple, Toronto fans displayed their hunger for victory by flipping waffles onto the buttery playing surface.  Hey!  Leggo of our shtick, only us Philly fans are allowed to burn our fresh image by tossing objects at players.

Phew, what just happened?  We're back.

The Toronto Sun has the story, including a quote from Prongs and the douchebag spelling of "defense."

When the final horn sounded at the conclusion of the game between the Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre, a pile of waffles was thrown on to the ice, with one of them hitting the stick of Leafs defenceman Francois Beauchemin.

"Who brings waffles to the game?" a bemused Chris Pronger, the Flyers defenceman, said afterward.

Beauchemin brushed off the breakfast food attack.

"I didn't see what it was," Beauchemin said. "Something came to my stick. The way we're playing, it is frustrating for everybody."
