This GIF from Michigan Tech’s double-overtime win against Bowling Green in the WHCA final is an absolute delight.

Michigan Tech earned a place in the NCAA tournament with the win, but the real star is how this sequence unfolded.
Two seconds in: The goal is scored.
3.5 seconds in: A Bowling Green skater crashes into his own goalie.
Eight seconds in: They both lay on the ice in anguish.
12 seconds in: The hoard arrives.
13 seconds in: They glide through the the frame like a swarm of bees, or baby chicks huddling for warmth.
14.7 seconds in: One of the celebrating players trips over an opponent, still on the ice devastated.
Such a beautiful GIF from top to bottom. Poor Bowling Green hasn’t made the NCAA tournament since 1990 and has now lost twice to Michigan Tech in double overtime.
