In our interview yesterday, former Louisiana IceGators coach Brent Sapergia coach said he couldn't wrap his brain around the "indefinite" suspension by the Southern Professional Hockey League because his stick-tossing tirade was the norm for enraged coaches and benign in comparison to other freak-outs.

"Tennis balls have come out of the rafters! Look at them falling like raindrops! Or is that hail?"
Great to see the Florida Panthers fans' plastic rats again; and we're not exactly sure how the throwing of ladies' undergarments hasn't become a tradition for when certain NHL pretty boys score goals.
Thanks to YouTube maven DayWalk3r for the clip, and for pointing out that one of our favorite fans-littering-the-ice moments (potential NSFW) sadly didn't make the cut.
