The Penguins traded their annual Skates & Plates waiter gear for other ill-fitting suits this year and hosted Aces & Ice Casino Night last night. It looked like the World’s Most Awkward Wedding Party.
But two drinks in, the bridesmaids are yelling, “DIBS!” and making shanks out of bobby pins.
The dads, like Alison’s dad there on the left (not really), are warming up their, “Have you met my daughter?” speeches.
While the groomsmen try not to look too drunk…
Even if they have to count reaaalllllyyy sllooowwwlllly…
And the married guys keep interrupting their attempts to flirt,
When they’re not laughing because they know how much an open bar costs.
But no matter how hard they try, there is always one guy who ends up going home alone.

Twenty bucks says that Ehrhoff, tired of being left out, rigs the Secret Santa so he can buy Letang a selfie stick.

The Dallas Stars also had a casino night this week. Furthering their quest to be Your Favorite Team, here’s video in which Jamie Benn admits his favorite part is “mingling with the female crowd” who sit at his table.
No shame if you just tried to buy a ticket for next year’s event like this:
