You shouldn't talk with your mouth full, but it's hysterical when the Colorado Avalanche do.

The Avalanche discussed what makes a good power play while their mouths were stuffed with marshmallows in a pre-Thanksgiving edition of the Chubby Bunny Challenge.

Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Nazem Kadri, Cale Makar, Colin Wilson, Philipp Grubauer, Nikita Zadorov, Joonas Donskoi, Samuel Girard, Erik Johnson, Andre Burakovsky were asked what makes a power play successful after stuffing their faces with marshmallows.

MacKinnon's answer, "Lots of shooting and good passing," was understandable. Kadri, made it through "Some structure, goal scoring" before fading out. The rest were pretty unintelligible.

They were willing to look silly for our entertainment, and we should all be thankful for that.
