Because everybody likes a moving picture that repeats itself over and over again, here are some of our favorite GIFs from the past week of the NHL playoffs. Check back every Friday during the Stanley Cup Playoffs for more.
Check out the backspin on that shot
No idea how this puck initially stayed out of the net, behind Henrik Lundqvist, but Daniel Paille was there to finally put it through the force field that seemed to be keeping it out.
Valtteri Filppula can fly (and score)
The Detroit Red Wings are up 3-1 on the Blackhawks entering the weekend, and Detroit's run all started with a Game 2 win earlier in the week. That game featured this incredible backhand goal from Valtteri Filppula as he beats Corey Crawford while he's flying through the air, parallel to the ice.
Paul MacLean has no answers
Paul Maclean addressed the media for 14 seconds after Ottawa's 7-3 Game 4 loss, saying all of the answers were on the stat sheet and that they were going to Pittsburgh and they're going to play.
Erik Karlsson doesn't need a stick to make a pass
Dan Bylsma is very excited
Chris Kunitz tries to shoot without the puck
Here is Penguins forward Chris Kunitz, closing in on the net for a scoring chance, and attempting to snap a quick shot at Craig Anderson. Everything was going perfectly except for one very small, minor detail.
He forgot the puck.
Dan Cleary is OK after this
And that's good news, because this looks like it probably hurt like hell.
John Tortorella is angry again
And he lets a linesman have it.
Tuukka Rask and the GIF of the week
As of this moment, this might be the GIF of the playoffs. Thank you, Tuukka Rask.
