Canadiens' Pacioretty, Gallagher try hand at comedy

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."
