The 'Stanley Cup Summed Up' video is like an animated infographic by Bård Edlund to give any sports fan their daily fix of hockey.

To rekindle fond memories of the Stanley Cup, the video infographic retells an iconic underdog story by replaying all goals scored by each team starting from Game 1, period 1. It even accounts for games that played simultaneously. While the goals are tallied, the number of team penalties is tracked as well, growing as a red block from center ice towards each team's 'net.' The cup winners, the Kings, are shown to come up from behind in both goals and team penalties -- the infographic provides an interesting lens through which to view the championship play out.

The info-style video is an example of the many ways modern multimedia can make learning engaging.
