When the head of Harvey the Hound was discovered floating in the middle of the flooded Saddledome in Calgary on the weekend, Craig MacTavish became a person of interest.

Indeed, when the news broke in regards to the beheading of the Calgary Flames mascot, the Edmonton Oilers coach quickly became the prime suspect on Twitter.

People remembered MacTavish, as Oilers coach on Jan. 20, 2003, with the Flames leading 4-0, being taunted by Harvey the Hound behind the Oilers bench. MacTavish reached out and pulled the signature long red tongue out of Harvey’s mouth and threw it into the crowd.
