During Sunday’s 4-1 win over the New York Rangers, CSN’s Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin put forward another #CapitalsTalk question (ugh, #lamehashtag): What’s your favorite hockey movie?
In the third period, Beninati presented some of his favorite response tweets. RMNB reader Nick P.’s response was just bizarre.

Wait, what? There’s a hockey scene in The Tooth Fairy?
[Checks YouTube. Searches. Searches some more. Find this.]
“You can’t handle the tooth!” I’m so embarrassed for The Rock watching this.
Great. Now go back to up to that Vine and unmute it. You’ll hear what I call broadcasting excellence. Joe B. asks the viewers, “Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?” And while he does, Locker laughs uncontrollably.
This is my favorite Joe B. quote of the year. I have prepared the following reasons:
- Joe B knows wrestling. We now have even more in common.
- I’m imagining Joe B. saying this with his eyebrow up and some sunglasses on.
- The silly responses remind us that Joe B. and Locker don’t take themselves too seriously, which is part of why we love them so very much.
In conclusion, Joe B. rules and I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed.
Joe B just said "Can you smell what the Rock is cooking?" in reference to a tweet from the viewers. Night = made.
