Phantom OT goals, drunks stealing hockey equipment, and Pat Sajak all teamed up to make this another exciting seven days in and around the NHL. Here are the five funniest hockey-related tweets from the past week:

The funniest part of this tweet for me is imagining Alex Trebek cutting Pat Sajak's throat with a razor and then casually going back to hosting Jeopardy! while covered in blood.
