Did a Habs Fan Celebrate Lars Eller’s Hat Trick By Throwing a ***** on the Ice?

It sure looks like a ***** in this picture, and I wouldn’t put it past a Montreal Canadiens fan to bring such an item to a game in anticipation of one of the Habs netting a hat trick.  I just hope that it wasn’t in slightly used condition when it made it’s way to the ice. Whether or not the red, phallic-shaped item found amongst the hats strewn on the ice following Montreal...
