Did anyone watch ESPNNEWS after the game?
 
I switched over to ESPNNEWS after ABC and CBC had moved on and they were still showing on-ice celebrations. One of the Lighting players (he was in the #30's and it wasn't Modin or Khabi) was doing some fake wrestling stunts with Hulk Hogan and some other pro wrestler. The announcers weren't really paying attention to what was on the screen and were re-capping some stats and storylines from the series. The one then goes on to say "What a great night for the NHL". Then the wrestler (not Hogan) yells at the top of his lungs and on air "F***in A".

First of all which player were these wrestlers with? I think it was Andre Roy.

Secondly, why were there pro wrestlers on the ice? Is it traditional for "celebrities" to make on-ice apperances?

It wasn't the Bash Brothers by any chance, was it?

I recognized during the game that the Bash Brothers were in attendance....brought back memories of mid-90's WWF. :lol

Hogan was probably on the ice cuz his daughter has been/is the national anthem singer for Tbay, and the Hulkster is somewhat of a mascot I Suppose you could say, as I'm pretty sure he's been used for pumping up the crowd + PR purposes, and apparently is ACTUALLY a hockey fan...so they invited them onto the ice to celebrate with the team...I have a picture that I Found of Brooke Hogan, Hogan himself and Lecavalier

That was Andre Roy, and right after that they showed Dingman and Roy running around like they were the bash brothers.

Brian Nash... I think. I saw a similar scene on the ice with Vinny Lecavlier.

they should have set up a ladder (hulkster vs. bash bros.) match during the 2nd intermission...draw in some new fans maybe. ;)
