Do you keep the winning puck from the few Stanley Cup clinching OT games? Yes. Absolutely. 100%. No questions asked.

But WTH ever heard of keeping the last puck that just happened to be on the ice in a game that was decided long before the whistle? Like it's some sort of common practice? Exactly.

There's no historical significance to it from any other puck used in the game. In fact, it's even less historically significant than any of the Kings goal scoring pucks that night.
Why lie about it if it means so little?
