On a recent episode O'Brien told a story about a time when he played with the Vancouver Canucks. His team was visiting the Calgary Flames and were up 3-0.
During a TV timeout one of the lady's on the Flames' Ice Crew caught his eye. O'Brien went over to chat and make plans after the game at Cowboys, a famous bar in Calgary.
O'Brien's coach at the time Alain Vigneault caught him trying to multitask and was pissed.
Things got hairy for the O'Brien and the Canucks as the Flames made it 3-2.
Luckily for O'Brien and the Canucks, the Sedin twins Henrik and Daniel came up big late in the game to give Vancouver the win.
A successful night complete for O'Brien and the Canucks.
