Bruins Assistant Coach Tosses Earpiece over the Boards and into a Fan's Drink

A bit of technical difficulties might’ve led to one of the most incredible no-look shots ever seen in sports during Monday night’s matchup between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Bruins assistant coach Geoff Ward looked to be having troubles with an earpiece when he decided to jettison something up and over the glass with a no-look toss.

As you can see, the earpiece—or whatever it was—sails over the boards and appears to land perfectly in a fan’s drink, who looks down at the item in surprise.

Further investigation of the video appears to provide a bit of controversy—some believe Ward Drano’d the shot, others think it was an optical illusion and the projectile missed the beer and fell to the floor.

These “beerpiece” truthers believe that the angle of the camera shot only makes the item appear to drop into the fan’s cup and insist that Ward missed by a narrow margin. 

The fan does appear to look past the cup at the ground on the video replay, but I’m not a forensic scientist. Therefore, I am unqualified to comment.

Personally, I think the shot was straight onions, but then again, as an optimist, I always consider my glass half-full of electronic communication devices. 

Either way, the only way this clip gets any more awesome would be if Dwight Howard was standing off-camera yelling “Buckets!!”
