The Green Men of Vancouver, those body-suited jesters of the opponents' penalty box at GM Place, struck again on Saturday night as the Vancouver Canucks hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs. If you thought their manic mime routine against the Nashville Predators or impressive upside-down taunting of Jack Johnson(notes) of the Los Angeles Kings was hilarious, then you haven't seen their Eggos.

National treasures, those two. Check out the Green Men fan page for more, and this Vancouver Sun article on their origins. Stick-tap to Puck Buddy Mike for the tip.
