In case you are unaware of what "Teddy Bear Toss Night" is, it's a pretty cool promotion. Fans are encouraged to bring stuffed animals to the game, and once the home team scores its first goal, they throw the stuffed animals onto the ice. The staff gathers the stuffed animals and gives them to kids for the holidays.
