Fallon brings the funny with NHL pictures on 'Tonight Show'

In third installment of playoffs, Capitals, Golden Knights are butt of jokes @NHLdotcom

Just because they are playing for the Stanley Cup doesn't mean the Washington Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights are safe from a roasting.

Jimmy Fallon poked a little fun at the team's headshots for the third installment of his running bit "Tonight Show Superlatives," this one for the 2018 Stanley Cup Final.

Among the players roasted were Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury for his bulky goalie equipment, Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin for his messy hair and his teammate Brett Connolly for an awkward smile.

Friday's show was the third time Fallon had some laughs with NHL headshots. Brent Burns and Phil Kessel were included in the first bit while Ryan McDonagh and Charlie McAvoy were featured in the second one.
