The NHL is doing its part to poke fun of itself during a difficult time in history.
As teams have played at Rogers Place and Scotiabank Arena, the league has continued several aspects of a normal game presentation but turned them into gags.
For instance, on Wednesday, the league changed the jumbotron graphic that usually asks fans to leave the arena safely to this.

Last week, the NHL announced the attendance of the Blues-Avalanche game: 0.
According to ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski, the NHL’s chief content officer, Steve Mayer, is one of the officials behind the silliness and it appears it’s only going to get sillier over time.
Steve Mayer told me the NHL was going to do some cheeky things about playing in the bubble. This is great. pic.twitter.com/Klw6xGgqzD
