On Wednesday night, when the New York Islanders tied the game 2-2 against the Carolina Hurricanes, Isles center Brock Nelson deliberately skated in front of the net and tapped Canes goalie Curtis McElhinney on the head.
Down 2-0 in the series, it was an odd move to pull.
Fast forward to last night.
Carolina swept the series.
That meant it was time for handshakes, one of the best traditions in hockey, with both teams lining up.
Hurricanes defenseman Dougie Hamilton took the opportunity to troll the hell out of Nelson instead.

This is why you don’t do stuff like that when you’re not winning.
No one ever forgets a troll job.
But more importantly, the last troll is the one that matters most.
