This Russian Hockey Team Did The Strangest Celebration We've Seen Yet

A Russian hockey team did its very best impression of the fall of former Soviet republics in a video that was posted to YouTube on Wednesday.

Just after the 3:50 mark in the video above, you can see MHC Loko of the MHL, the KHL's junior league, as a game ended. Then they stood in a line at centre ice and slammed their sticks.

Then, one player skated up, gave a teammate a small bump and all of them subsequently fell like dominoes.

The gesture came after the team won a playoff series, Yahoo! Puck Daddy reported.

Falling like dominoes is hardly the first image we think of when a team wins, but we'll take this one.

It's just a touch more bizarre than this celebration, by Washington Capitals winger Alexander Ovechkin.

Russians may not beat Canadians at Olympic hockey, but they know how to celebrate in their own way.
