Quick shift: Shea Weber's blast and the annoyed John Tortorella cutout
In case you missed it, the best from Friday night's hockey slate, including Predators D Shea Weber's bar-down slap shot and the Winnipeg fans' cutout of the Vancouver head coach.

Miss out on some or all of Friday's NHL hockey?
Take a shift with FOX Sports to find out what happened at the rink. From Shea Weber's two-goal performance vs. the Devils to Michal Neuvirth's flashy glove save against the Wings, here are some of the most intriguing moments from the five-game slate.
Shea Weber scored a goal only Shea Weber can score.
The Nashville defenseman let this blast go to beat Devils G Cory Schneider in the first period. Schneider's probably just glad this shot didn't hit him — and no one would blame him if that joke were actually true.

With Vancouver now 3-7-0 in its last 10 after losing late in regulation to the Jets on Friday, that might have been the face Tortorella would have made had he been there.

Extra time in Detriot
Let's start off-topic and just say Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth's got a pretty nice glove hand:
However, even despite the acrobatics of the Washington goalie, the Capitals need a goal from winger Alex Ovechkin to force OT. After no result through five minutes of 4-on-4, the Red Wings were able to finally sneak one past Neuvirth in the shootout, as Patrick Eaves found space on the glove side in the seventh round for the 4-3 decision.
