This one's for fans of sports, data, and hypnotic electronic music - there have to be a few of you out there, right? This infographic video, created by multidisciplinary artist (and former Art Director of CNN Money) Bard Edlund, visualizes every single goal of this year's Stanley Cup playoffs using a rink with 16 nets and some interesting sound design.
The video demonstrates how important physical play was on the road to the Cup - the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings ended up winning, but as the video shows, they did so with fewer goals than their final opponents, the sixth-seeded New Jersey Devils. But the Kings pulled ahead of the Devils in another area: they took more penalty minutes than any other team in the playoffs, and according to FastCoDesign, it was that "physical play - brute force rather than stick finesse - that won them the Cup".
The full picture of the Kings' win comes at the end of the video, but it's worth watching all the way through for the hypnotic visuals, music and sound effects:
