Because everybody likes a moving picture that repeats itself over and over again, here are some of our favorite GIFs from the 2013 NHL regular season. From crazy celebrations to John Scott to Tuukka Rask falling down in frustration.

Let's do it.

Mathieu Perrault is very excited

Washington Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault celebrates a shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres in a very unique way. We still have no idea what this is or what's happening here, but his excitement is unmatched (until he did this a couple of weeks later).


It's not worth dropping your kid to catch a hockey stick

Really, there's nothing else to add here. Don't do this. Ever. Never ever. If you think about doing it, just stop. I know the possibility of getting a game-used hockey stick from Mike Richards is a little too much to handle for some people. But for the love of all that is holy, don't drop the kid.


Hello there, John Scott

Buffalo Sabres rookie defenseman Mark Pysyk made the big leagues and was being interviewed on live TV following a game earlier this season. This was the perfect opportunity for John Scott to drop in and say hello.

Easily in the running for our favorite GIF of the season.


David Perron can fly

I don't want to say St. Louis' David Perron was guilty of taking a dive here, but...


Jannik Hansen and his goal

Go on. Get out of here.


Thumbs up, dude

This kid is one of the coolest fans you're going to ever come across at a hockey game, and he seems to be a huge fan of Nashville Predators backup goalie Chris Mason.


Tuukka Rask Smash!

Oh, Tuukka.

This is almost a mirror image of a similar meltdown that Boston's Tuukka Rask had following a shootout during his American Hockey League days. I could watch this over and over and over and over and ...


The key to winning a faceoff in the NHL

Noted pest and faceoff specialist Steve Ott introduces a new way to gain the upper hand when it comes to winning a draw in the NHL: Licking your opponent's visor.


Protect your beer

The initial thought here was that Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward tossed an ear piece over his shoulder and into the beer of a fan (unintentionally, of course) seated in the front row. As it turns out, it was actually smelling salts that one of the players on the bench had used. That doesn't make it any less amazing.

Don Cherry says something dumb

You could just put this on the TV every Saturday night during Don Cherry's Coach's Corner segment, and it would never be out of place. Ron MacLean reacts to Cherry's rant about women not belonging in a locker room.


Bring on the playoffs.
