Welcome once again to Hockey Hugs.
It's playoff time, which means this week's hugs are a little bigger, a little tighter, and a little more emotional. It means hugs like the one above, where the Rangers get together in a corner for a quick snuggle before a shift. That's Ryan Callahan, looking back at John Tortorella, who's screaming at them to get to the faceoff dot.
But before we get to today's batch of NHL calibre dude-huggery, we have to take a moment and appreciate this big squeeze from Game 2 of the QMJHL's Presidents Cup Final. Watch these two members of the Halifax Mooseheads bring it in for a goodbye squeeze before one of them is thrown out at the 2:05 mark:
And here it is in gif form . Adorable.
Anyway. Let us now come together and watch the NHL's finest do the same.
