Win the final round of the NHL Playoffs, and they give you hockey's Holy Grail. Win the conference finals, and they give you a trophy you superstitiously don't touch.

Win an opening-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and they give you … T-shirt cannons at a Nickelback show. And, apparently, clothes featuring a psychedelic kitten wearing 3-D glasses to match your Jesus beard.

That's Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell of the Flyers, who joined teammates Max Talbot and Matt Carle on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center to rock out with the official band of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and NHL Awards.

The players were given air cannons to shoot into the crowd during the band's RAWKING metal jam. We hear several of the shirts ended up beating Marc-Andre Fleury, five-hole ...

The Pensblog's stunned disbelief over the loss to the Flyers just got a little more stunned. Meanwhile, we wait patiently for Ilya Bryzgalov to appear onstage dancing with plush bears at a Flaming Lips concert …

The video of the Flyers T-shirt firing is peppered with NSFW R-rated language, so we can't embed. If you want to watch something else Claude Giroux does better than you, click the Max Talbot video screen cap here (two rock stars!) with that language warning in mind:
