You didn't think hockey was anything like pinball, did you? You thought wrong. MULTIBALL mode, everyone's favorite novelty, is real, and it happened during a hockey game.
The Rangers and Senators played with two pucks for a solid 20 seconds after a puck sitting on the back of the net went unnoticed for a moment. As play continued, the puck was eventually fished out of the net after the live puck was dumped in, thus two pucks in play.
That all led to a hilarious situation where the action was happening in two places at once. And the refs still couldn't figure it out -- at least not for a while.
Confused? We've got video to explain it all.
And a GIF of the moment two pucks are put into play.
The video starts with the puck lodged on top of the net. That's fine, and harmless for the time being. But as the action moves behind the net, all hell breaks loose and nobody is quite sure what to do. It's a pretty fantastic sequence of events, if I do say so myself.
