The Sydney Ice Dogs, a semi-professional ice hockey team in the Australian Ice Hockey League, recently released their first commercial to the world for their “Come to an Ice Dogs game, or we’ll ruin yours!” campaign. Above, an unsuspecting golfer learns the hard way that he should probably go over to the Catholic Club’s ice rink in Liverpool, New South Wales ASAP. Sure, this post has absolutely nothing to do with Nick Backstrom’s hand injury, the Capitals, or Russia in general, but since we love gratuitous violence – and it’s a Wednesday – we thought we’d share. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
S/T to @saskystewart, the self-proclaimed “First Lady of Australian Ice Hockey” for posting.
It is well known that our blog loves everything “Ovechtrick“. So when CRL’s behind the scenes video of the commercial shoot crossed our desk we were morally obligated to share it with you fine folks. Take a look:

Editor’s note: Reader Jerry Moxley is just your average, amateur hockey player, but he has got one of the greatest “meet your hero” stories we’ve ever read.
If you can make a living doing something you love, consider yourself lucky. I was able to take my interest in television and make a career out of it, but I put on my hockey skates too late to become more than a beer-league weekend warrior. With the birth of my second daughter, I decided to take more work on the side to pay the bills. One day, through Russian Machine Never Breaks and Carlyn Davis Casting, I learned that there was a commercial being filmed at my home rink in Laurel, MD that needed ice rink extras. I emailed the casting agency with the expectation that of a little extra money and maybe a spot in a blurry background somewhere. It turned out to be something bigger.
Nothing gets me more excited for the upcoming hockey season than local commercials featuring some of the Capitals biggest stars. The summer has already brought us a Capital One campaign with Alex Ovechkin checking a Visigoth through the glass and another of him moving new Redskins QB Donovan McNabb into the area. A few weeks ago, Comcast Sportsnet raised the stakes by releasing “The Race For The Cup,” an Inception-stylized promo hyping the start of the season. And we here at RMNB had been hearing rumors about another a clip featuring the Caps’ secret weapon, television dynamo Bruce “Gabby” Boudreau.
Well, with a huge special thanks to Hadeed Carpet Cleaning, we are proud to present Caps Nation with its first look at Bruce Boudreau’s latest masterpiece.
The clip, produced by Rosenberg Media, features Coach and his lovely wife Crystal. The couple are in a pickle after some unruly friends wreck their house. Oh no! Who will save the day?
And yeah, there’s a pony. Why is there a pony at the home of the former Jack Adams Winner? No idea, but I want to party with Bruce now. And if you think the pony is cool, you’ll love what’s hanging from the ceiling in the shot before this.
