What a week it was in the NHL.
Sidney Crosby taking his scoring-at-will to a level seldom seen in this era, Tim Thomas continuing his unconscious play while still looking like he has no idea what he's doing between the pipes, and Toronto Maple Syrup, er, Leafs fans showing their displeasure with waffle-throwing at the end of the game.
Then there was Darren Pang.
And of course, we can't forget Matt Carkner taking the phrase "blood, sweat and tears" to a whole new level as he turned the New York Rangers bench into a splash zone, with no prior warning. No word on what was said to him during the game, but here's assuming he was told more than once to flick off.
Yes, we saw it all this week, as it proved to be one of the more entertaining ones of the year. A unique seven days as well, as one of the more detested aspects of hockey takes center stage.
Eat your heart out, shootout haters.
Here are the top five goals, saves, and hits of the past week.
