The Boston Bruins stomped all over the Pittsburgh Penguins, 6-2, on Friday night, handing them their third consecutive loss.
But it was a hockey official left holding a shoe.
A big reason for the Bruin's romp was rookie Frank Vatrano's first career hat trick. But because it happened on the road, where you don't expect a lot of hats thrown in tribute, a couple of caps did make their way down to the ice — along with the shoe.
Yup. A shoe.
The size 12 was probably a hint from a disgruntled Penguins fan sitting in the Consol Energy Center stands who had seen enough of the 21-year-old Vatrano.
In other words, take a hike.
Disbelieving officials scooped up the wayward shoe which was hopefully claimed at the exit because it was snowing and about 20-degrees in Pittsburgh last night.
