And now for something completely random: Calgary Flames forward Jiri Hudler was shooting baskets last Friday...while wearing his hockey gear.The Flames had arrived in Philadelphia a day early for their game with the Flyers, but couldn't practice at the Wells Fargo Center because the 76ers had a basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers that night. While the Flames waited for transportation to UPenn's Class of 23 Ice Rink across town, Hudler decided to use the opportunity to shoot a few baskets on the arena floor. Despite not having his skates, Hudler displayed some decent basketball moves and even got some shooting tips from Lakers assistant coach Larry Lewis. Unfortunately, the Flames' visit to Philly was unsuccessful as they lost to the Flyers 2-1.Video via NHL.

Calgary Flames forward Jiri Hudler was in Philadelphia to play the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center, when he came out in full pads (save for hockey skates) and shot around with the Lakers.

As the New York Post's Larry Brooks already covered Martin Brodeur's future, we'll skip ahead past the "lede" of the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch's final pre-Olympic rumor column and survey this meaty missive instead:

The Los Angeles Lakers and Calgary Flames both were in Philadelphia on Friday, with the Lakers taking on the 76ers that night, and the Flames playing the Flyers the following day.
The two teams united in an unconventional way in the afternoon when Flames winger Jiri Hudler decided to join the Lakers’ shootaround. And he just so happened to be in full pads.
