For as long as hockey rinks have been surrounded by glass, fans have been banging on said glass in an effort to make as much noise, and bring as much attention to themselves, as humanly possible. (Loud noises!)
Early in the third period of Toronto's 4-1 loss in Nashville on Thursday night, Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul found himself standing next to the glass following a stoppage in play when a Predators fan in the front row used that opportunity to give the glass a swift kick right next to Lupul's head, surprising the Toronto forward.
That's definitely a new one, and it appeared that Lupul had something to say to the fan.
On Friday, Lupul took to his Twitter account and asked his followers if they wanted to venture a guess as to what he said in response, before following it up with this:
"I can't remember exactly but I feel that the word "toothless" was my initial reaction. He only had 4 of em."
