Downing alcoholic beverages at NHL games is becoming one of America's greatest sports pastimes.

With the Boston Bruins hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 on Tuesday night, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman sent the crowd at TD Garden into a frenzy with his consumption skills:

Edelman has a habit of showing up at Boston sporting events and downing a beer to get the crowd hyped. He previously did it at the Boston Celtics' second game of the 2015 season, but he casually dropped the can to the ground.

As a sign of Edelman's personal growth over the past four years, he's now taken to slamming the can into the ground. It may also have been an homage to his now-former teammate Rob Gronkowski's spike.
