This is an odd photo. I especially like the way the referee is signaling a crosschecking penalty when he should clearly be calling the police. But there’s more to laugh about here. Consider Campbell’s concern (Dude, you killed him). Consider the feigned innocence in Keith’s stance, or the way he looks back, dumbly, groping for some explanation for the dead guy at his feet. (Um, I found him this way… he fell…)

Is this the guiltiest-looking photo ever taken? No, but only because we have the context of the ice surface. If, say, the entire scene took place in a dark, empty alley with overgrown shrubs, an absent moon and walls lined with brick, well, then we’d really have something.

Thankfully, I found one of those.

    That picture is perfect. Thanks guys for keeping me occupied during this short but incredibly boring summer

    With all the big rough players Gillis is signing, murdering the Sedins is gonna be a lot harder to get away with this season.

      As a cynic, I figure that somehow, Brad Marchand will still find a way beat his record for consecutive punches on Daniel Sedin and skate away unharmed.

    So how about that fan doing an inappropriate licking gesture behind the glass? PHOTO NOW COMPLETE.

      Hahaha, I saw that too. Hockey photos are an endless source of mirth.

    Literally made me snicker. Lot better than “made me lolz.”

    Umm, that’s not a limesman signaling a cross-checking penalty, that’s a referee. I know it’s the off-season so nobody is really on their game at the moment.
