Sid the Kid's glove, went into the first row.

When Crosby scored, mere seconds after the winning goal went into the net, Crosby shook off his gloves and threw them into the air. One glove hit the ice, but i think the other one went into the stands over the glass.

A windfall for whoever the lucky fan was who caught it. That glove would bring thousands of dollars on Ebay. Maybe tens of thousands of dollars. Imagine being the fan who got to see the players celebrate directly in front of you, but you got Sid's sweaty glove that scored the winning goal 2 seconds before. He scored the winner and you had the glove in your hands 2 seconds later. Amazing.

Both of them fell onto the ice. I thought the exact same thing, but the replay showed, that both of them hit the ice.

The glove would have just hit the netting behind the boards and fell to the ice.

I didn't even notice, was there netting there? Wasn't sure if the same rules applied to international hockey.

Yes, hilarious. Newfang must have all of Leno's material for the next few weeks already taken care of to be hanging around here, dropping gems like that one.

Yes, there was. I noticed it when I was there because it doesn't go as high up as Rexall's, which is right to the roof.

The rink was the exact same as for the Canucks, same boards, same glass, same ice size, same netting. Just suck all Canucks-advertising out of it.

In his spot, no way he could throw up his gloves that high above the netting. Never been to GM Place, but I expect it to be fairly high.

We need multiple video evidence to do geometrical calculations. Also, was there a lucky loonie somewhere?

I have to watch that again, but I could have sworn Crosby merely dropped his gloves and stick to the ice after he realized the puck was in the net and he was skating to the corner.

Knocked someone out, and now they are suing. Way to go, Sid.

Flew into the stands and wiped a tear from Ovechkin's rosy cheek.

he threw his gloves in the corner, im pretty sure even if they cleared the glass that huge 20 foot net that stops pucks from entering the crowd would have come into play

Never mind his gloves... did you see the mouthguard? That thing went flying, spit included. It's pretty funny to watch in the replay, that MAY have been able to squeak through the netting even.

I'd take it over a glove...

They changed the glass to plexiglass from seamless glass for the games. The netting also doesn't go up that high.

It was funny, and Leno is the man. Conan sucks, sorry.

What game are you talking about? I don't remember hearing anything about Sid scoring a goal.

That made me laugh too, mostly because he took it out of his mouth, then threw it. Obviously he was losing his mind just as much as the rest of us, I had to watch the replay about four times before I calmed down enough to hear Cuthbert's call.

They bounced off the ice and landed in the stands. I have them both and have them for sale, just PM me.

They are just $1,000 each, or $1,900 for the pair...two pairs for $3,000.

Watching Crosby's Pre-Game Penguins press conference, it seems as though the mouth guard is one of the few things he got back. I don't think he got either his stick or gloves back, they 'disappeared' somewhere.
