Rock, Paper, Scissors for puck

Young fan battles Coyle in Rock, Paper, Scissors

After failing the first two times, a determined fan defeats Charlie Coyle in Rock, Paper, Scissors to bring home a souvenir puck

The third time was the charm for one persistent Boston Bruins fan.

The young Bruins supporter finally received a puck after defeating Charlie Coyle in rock-paper-scissors during warmups before Boston's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

The fan held up a sign along the glass that said "Rock Paper [Scissors] for a puck. Let's Go Bruins."

Coyle skated over and obliged with puck in hand. He first won by throwing scissors to the fan's paper, then won again by covering the fan's rock with paper.

But the fan finally won a souvenir by throwing scissors against Coyle's paper to the delight of him and his friend.

The Bruins then made the fan's night even better by defeating Buffalo 3-0.
