The New Jersey Devils may not be winning too many games of late, but they certainly win the internet for the weekend. Blake Coleman scored a silky shootout winner last night, and the Devils social media team made the best of the video by turning it into a meme.
This is most likely the best thing you’ll watch today. 勒 pic.twitter.com/jDxnwMYa2d— New Jersey Devils (@NJDevils) March 24, 2019
Hey, it's the little victories that matter when you're mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.
The video has everything you could possibly want. MacKenzie Blackwood getting a face full of Gatorade, David Puddy falling, and cap it off with a little Pickle Rick to finish the video.
Blake Coleman’s shootout tally was just too pretty not to post. pic.twitter.com/G0WLOFEh0p— New Jersey Devils (@NJDevils) March 23, 2019
Real talk, that shootout goal was just too filthy to not meme it.
The NHL has really changed from it's days as a no-fun league. Don Cherry would probably still prefer that the league remained as a black and white game. However, the Carolina Hurricanes, Vegas Golden Knights, and now the New Jersey Devils are really embracing this new fun-loving trend the league has taken. Let's hope more memes will come from this.
