My two favorite parts of this hockey scrum tableau — Nathan MacKinnon’s scrunchy face and the sheer length of Matt Duchene’s pompadour.

If you’ve never been in a mosh pit, I can tell you this is exactly how they go, minus the sticks. Some people are jumping into the fray, some are head banging and some are pushing more people into the pit. There are no bystanders.
