CALGARY - Social media isn’t always so entertaining.

But when the Twitterverse gets things right, the result can mean hours of entertainment.

That was the case Thursday when a challenge was issued to mix your favourite band names with NHL keywords — #NHLBands was created.

Hockey fans across the globe were united in trying to mesh the concepts in the most creative way possible, and for those taking part, it was hard to pull away from the computer screen.

Here are some of the best we saw at the Sun:
