Cup Final, Gm1: After scoring the game-tying goal, Ryan Reaves shows off his singing voice to the arena music during a stoppage in play

  • 00:29 •

Ryan Reaves is a singer. Even if it is Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Mere seconds after Reaves scored to tie Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in the third period against the Washington Capitals, he was shown crooning to a recording of "Minnie the Moocher" by Cab Calloway along with the sellout crowd at T-Mobile Arena.

Reaves knotted the score at 4 with his second goal of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and while maintenance workers made repairs to the ice, he sang the 1931 song's famous refrain "Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi!"

Because, why not?

The best part is Reaves did it all while chomping on some gum and looking like he didn't just score the biggest goal of his life.
