Do Hockey players party with zamboni drivers?
Do they fight better with or WITHOUT their skates on?
How do they REALLY feel about Happy Gilmore?
All of these questions answered ... and more ... when a bunch of New York Rangers players went out for sushi in Hollywood last night!!
Derick Brassard, Carl Hagelin, Ryan McDonagh and Brian Boyle hit up Sushi Roku -- and played a speed round of ice-breaker questions with our TMZ Sports photog.
It's pretty fun ... the guys are cool ... and it ALMOST makes us wanna root for the Rangers in the Stanley Cup. Almost.
