During Sunday’s 4-1 win over the New York Rangers, CSN’s Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin put forward another #CapitalsTalk question (ugh, #lamehashtag): What’s your favorite hockey movie?
If you ask me, there are only three options, and they fall precisely in this order: Sudden Death (that Penguin fight scene always slays me), Slapshot (Go Bruce!), and Miracle (again!).
In the third period, Beninati presented some of his favorite response tweets. RMNB reader Nick P.’s response was just bizarre.

“You can’t handle the tooth!” I’m so embarrassed for The Rock watching this.
Great. Now go back to up to that Vine and unmute it. You’ll hear what I call broadcasting excellence. Joe B. asks the viewers, “Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?” And while he does, Locker laughs uncontrollably.
This is my favorite Joe B. quote of the year. I have prepared the following reasons:
In conclusion, Joe B. rules and I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed.
Joe B just said "Can you smell what the Rock is cooking?" in reference to a tweet from the viewers. Night = made.
