Scott Hartnell and Joffrey Lupul Had a Sword Fight Over a Toilet Last Night
Let's go together
Somehow, in the rush to get up a post about Scott Hartnell and Claude Giroux trading friendly jabs last night, I missed the post-draft quotes from Hartnell and former Flyer Joffrey Lupul. And, well, let’s just say they were highlight of the night.
During a TV timeout, some of the All-Stars ran backstage to take a quick hose. There wasn’t exactly much time, so, apparently, Lupul, who was an assistant captain for Team Chara, used his elevated status to cut the line, but wound up at the same toilet, or urinal, as Hartnell.
Ladies and gentlemen, Scott Hartnell: [quotes via Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy]
Let's just say we shared the same bathroom at one time. He had to get out there quick. Everyone likes to play swords I guess.
Later, The FAN 950 captured video of Lupul being asked about the uncomfortable situation:
Maybe true. It was a mad scramble. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but probably something I didn’t want people to find out. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ve showered with him before in Philadelphia, so it wasn’t too weird.
