I can’t believe this little tidbit wasn’t picked up by some news outlet. But it hasn’t, not even by Off Wing or Deadspin, so I think I’ll just make note of it here, for posterity:

After John Madden picked up his third goal in Monday’s 4-1 Devils victory over the Rangers, the Continental Airlines Arena crowd obligingly tossed their hats into the rink.

But one New Jersey fan, lacking a hat, did the next best thing — he pulled off his toupee and flung that onto the ice.

Luckily, OLN’s camera crew was on the spot to capture that funny moment. They also got a shot of the guy being handed back his rug after arena personnel scooped it up, along with all the caps. And of course, they interviewed him for a few seconds — if sacrificing your hair-helmet in a show of team support isn’t deserving of some camera time, I don’t know what is.

I’m going strictly by memory, so I don’t remember what the fan’s name was. But I thought it was a funny little playoff moment.
