Moment of surreal

Sometimes I'll overhear a little snippet of someone else's conversation and really wish I had the contextual information necessary to make sense of it. Today's example, in an elevator:

"How you doing?"
--"I feel like a hockey player in a candle factory."

A hockey player in a candle factory. It's a beautiful, surreal metaphor, though I have utterly no clue what it means. It seemed to make complete sense to the two people talking, so it's probably not nonsense; I just don't have the context....
