Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma tossed a puck over the glass behind the bench during a recent game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The puck was intended for a cute little guy behind the Sabres bench, but instead it was intercepted by a demon or lesser imp from hell disguised in a human suit. At first, everyone assumed this grown man didn't notice the kid. But he totally noticed and knew exactly what he did, because he tucked the guilty proof in his pocket immediately. Fans watching the game from home immediately began tweeting at the Penguins, and they quickly went to work:

The Penguins were absolutely on it, and they totally redeemed humanity by overloading the kid with fantastic (and expensive) NHL merchandise. It was hand-delivered by Iceburgh, the Penguins mascot.

Here he is decked out with his flashy new gear:

It worked out much better for the little Penguins fan in the end. He received hugs, fist-bumps, and even the chance to give high-fives to players as they come out from the locker room. As for the guy that snatched the puck, the other fans likely treated him to audible and profanity-laden insults for the rest of the game.
