The Carolina Hurricanes and the Florida Panthers may want to take notes from two high schools in New Jersey after their quadruple-overtime affair on Thursday night into Friday morning, the sixth-longest NHL game ever.
Clearview Regional and Eastern high schools battled in a junior varsity boys’ lacrosse matchup, but no winner was determined after three overtimes.
Instead of risking even more overtimes, especially on a school night, the two squads decided they couldn’t wait much longer for a goal.

So they settled the matter with some good old-fashioned fun: a game of rock-paper-scissors.
A player from each side met in the middle of the field, surrounded by the full rosters of both teams.
After the quick draw, Clearview won the heated battle and celebrated the victory.
“Hats off to the Eastern players as well. Their team and staff are always a class act.”
The impromptu matchup got some love on social media.
“This was fun to watch… great to see these 2 competitors have a little fun,” Jennifer Monaco, a teacher at nearby Washington Township, tweeted.
