Remember Duck Hunt? That old video game for the original Nintendo that came with the plastic gun that you would shoot at the screen and that dog would laugh at you when you messed up?
Well, Chicago Blackhawks winger Dan Carcillo loved that game as a kid. Either that, or he's getting a little too clever about playing against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
"Favorite game growing up = Duck Hunter, Nintendo. Looking to do some real hunting tonight with even bigger rewards #boom #Blackhaws," Carcillo tweeted.
The main problem with Carcillo's play on words is Carcillo's history with Ducks veteran Corey Perry, as noted by ProHockeyTalk. Carcillo and Perry scrapped back in 2007 while Carcillo was on the Phoenix Coyotes and the bad blood may still linger.
However, as the article points out, the Ducks have no shortage of enforcers if things turn ugly while Carcillo goes "Duck Hunting." George Parros is sure to have Perry's back, as will teammate Matt Belesky.
Now, if only someone would figure out how to get that dog to stop laughing…
