The Boston Bruins Bear and Each NHL Team's Funniest Local Commercial

1 of 31

    The Boston Bruins have had a rather hilarious set of commercials running locally, including a bear going around the TD Garden giving rules.

    One such commercial contained a Bruins fan who was with a girl wearing a Montreal Canadiens' jersey. "But she's so pretty!" was his excuse.

    Another one was a response to a video of a girl who kicked in part of a pillar at the Garden.

    The commercials generally entail humorous situations appropriate for most teams' fans.

    Other organizations have local commercials that are funny in their own way.

Anaheim Ducks

    Did your school allow skate sharpeners in class?

Boston Bruins

3 of 31

    What makes this commercial so great is that every hockey fan should follow the rule.

Buffalo Sabres

4 of 31

    Oh, no big deal, Jason Pominville is just hanging out in this guy's store.

Calgary Flames

5 of 31

    Last season the Flames held a contest called "Brand Your Passion" on Facebook. Fans could submit a 30-second commercial, the winner of which received $10,000 in addition to their commercial airing on Sportsnet during a game.

    This didn't win, believe it or not.

Carolina Hurricanes

6 of 31

    This old commercial parodies a scene in The Matrix in which Keanu Reeves readies himself for a gunfight in a similar manner.

Colorado Avalanche

7 of 31

    The Avs' funny local commercial was not all that great, but this one by ESPN was worth watching.

Chicago Blackhawks

8 of 31

    What are you doing?

Columbus Blue Jackets

9 of 31

    The commercial was not meant to be funny, but the awkwardness of it makes R.J. Umberger's first bell ringing a little entertaining.

Dallas Stars

10 of 31

    This was apparently aired during the Stars' first season in Dallas after relocating from Minnesota.


Detroit Red Wings

11 of 31

    Nothing says hockey like candles in a locker room.

Edmonton Oilers

12 of 31

    Once commercials reach a certain age, their "I'm from the wrong era" feel makes them humorous.

Florida Panthers

13 of 31

    It would get her a five-game suspension in today's NHL.

Los Angeles Kings

14 of 31

    They look ridiculous.

Minnesota Wild

15 of 31

    Well, so much for asking the roommate if it's okay to have guests over...

Montreal Canadiens

16 of 31

    Something about Denis Savard and Coca-Cola somehow bringing him to the Canadiens.

    It's a perfectly logical concept.

Nashville Predators

17 of 31

    If anyone ever questions where you were, just meow after telling the truth.

New Jersey Devils

18 of 31

    The Devils' local commercials aren't all that funny, but this ESPN spot just can't be ignored.

New York Islanders

19 of 31

    SNY provides coverage of all New York-area sports teams, including the Islanders.

    The commercial is based on a study that said watching sports can actually boost testosterone levels.

New York Rangers

20 of 31

    Those look cool. Googling where a pair of Sasson jeans can be found is now a top priority.

Ottawa Senators

21 of 31

    Subway is an official sponsor of the team, leading to this great commercial.

Philadelphia Flyers

22 of 31

    For local matters, there is an awful old Tastykakes commercial that is worth a look, but this NHL spot is a classic that can't be ignored.

Phoenix Coyotes

23 of 31

    This is the happiest anyone has ever looked while eating a taco from Taco Bell.

Pittsburgh Penguins

24 of 31

    What exactly was Max Talbot doing with his hands?

San Jose Sharks

25 of 31

    The Sharks have a number of "He's a lousy ____ but he's a great hockey player" commercials, but this one features the team's toughest player being afraid of a raccoon.

St. Louis Blues

26 of 31

    Not exactly a funny commercial, but that song is awful enough to ruin this commercial.

Tampa Bay Lightning

27 of 31

    He might do a better job if he organized the desk a little better.

Toronto Maple Leafs

28 of 31

    It would be pretty impressive to find a goal so ridiculous that it makes the goalie quit hockey and become a gardener.

Vancouver Canucks

29 of 31

    If this was aired during the riots after Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, Vancouver probably would've looked at the screen and said, "Oh. Right, let's stop all this. Go flip that car back over and get some extinguishers to put out the fires."

Washington Capitals

30 of 31

    There is another ridiculous commercial that suggests the Secret Service listens to Capitals games all day, but this...



Winnipeg Jets

31 of 31

    This old Atlanta Thrashers spot gets the message across.
