Behind the Boards: Where the Blueshirts Stand in NHL Drinking Rankings:
1. Toronto Maple Leafs: These folks up north take the crown with an impressive 3.9 average drinks per game. They’re spending about $58.50 on booze, and maybe that’s how they cope with their 56-year Cup drought.
2. Chicago Blackhawks: Close behind are the Hawks, sipping at 3.8 drinks per game, spending a reasonable $36.10. It must be the Windy City’s way of staying warm during those chilly winters.
3. Tampa Bay Lightning: The Bolts are zapping away with 3.7 drinks, forking over $44.40 for their game-time beverages.
4. Colorado Avalanche: The Avs match Tampa’s 3.7 drinks but also spend $44.40. Maybe it’s the altitude that makes them thirsty.
5. Arizona Coyotes: The desert dwellers are at 3.6 drinks, shelling out $46.80. Hey, you’d need a cool drink in the desert, too.
You might be wondering where the Blueshirts fit into this spirited ranking. Well, hold onto your ice-cold brews, dear reader.
32. New York Rangers: Here we are, at the bottom of the drink-o-meter, sipping at a modest 1.8 drinks per game. And hey, we’re not breaking the bank either, spending just $24.30. Why, you ask? Well, maybe it’s because we know how to enjoy the game without needing a brew every few minutes.
