Canadiens' Pacioretty, Gallagher try hand at comedy

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

While traditionally focusing on scoring goals, Montreal Canadiens forwards Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher shifted their attention toward netting a few laughs in a video shown on the team's website.

The end result? Well, let's just say that the two should keep their day jobs.

With the "Seinfeld" theme in the background, Pacioretty looked a bit stiff on stage and out of his element while delivering a dentist joke with a painful punchline. The team's leading goal-scorer in 2014-15 exited after one attempt at comedy while Gallagher seemed to genuinely warm to the task.

"How does NASA organize their company parties?" Gallagher said during the 49-second video. "They planet."
