It’s been a while since Andrew Gordon played for the Washington Capitals, but the few who saw it will never forget when he kissed Marcus Johansson after scoring his first career goal on Dec. 21, 2010. Thinking of that for some reason, and also Valentine’s Day, inspired us to look up more video of NHL players kissing each other on the ice.

The best ‘kiss’ between NHL players was when Philadelphia’s Jeremy Roenick pretended to make out with March Recchi in Toronto when the Air Canada Center’s Kiss Cam filmed them. Unfortunately, video of the incident is difficult to find. Says Roenick: “How many guys in the National Hockey League would actually do that? You guys thought I wouldn’t do that. Recchs is a good friend of mine. I like to have fun. I’m stable in my sexuality.”

First, the latest and our favorite:

Last but not least, our old friends Esa Tikkanen and Dale Hunter
