Jerry scores premium tickets to a New Jersey Devils playoff game. He invites Kramer, Puddy, and Elaine along. But Jerry gets weirded out when Puddy shows up at the game and paints his face to match the team colors. Puddy gets so worked up after the game that he freaks out a visiting pastor from El Salvador, who is convinced that Puddy really is the devil. Elaine tries to convince him otherwise. Kramer enjoyed the game so much that he tries to convince Jerry to get more tickets from the guy Jerry got them from. Meanwhile, George decides to tell his girlfriend that he loves her, only to have the plans backfire on him while Kramer battles a chimpanzee at the zoo. Written by halo1k

Did You Know?


The Devils and Rangers did not meet in the playoffs in 1995, the season the episode was aired. The two teams did meet in a memorable playoff series the previous year. See more »


After the hockey game,Kramer states that 'there is still 3 games left' in the series,meaning that was Game #4 they just watched. They manage to get tickets to the next game, however, Game #5 would have moved to New Jersey, as the NHL runs a 2-2-1-1-1 playoff system. See more »

Season 6, Episode 22, "The Face Painter"

"The Face Painter" is an excellent episode, that relies almost entirely on Jason Alexander, who delivers one of his best performances as George Constanza. George has been becoming more and more of a jerkass as the series progressed, but on "The Face Painter" he's sympathetic as well.

He's not alone, though. Patrick Warburton reprises his role as David Puddy, and where his previous appearance on "The Fusilli Jerry" was pretty tame, this time he nails the character. His interactions with Elaine are hilarious, and set the pace for most of season 9 (on which he'd be used a bit excessively - though he's still one of the funniest actors on the show). Kramer is also hilarious in a pretty dumb and inconsequential but entertaining side-plot.
