More than 1 million people signed a petition to make "Spongebob" the halftime performer to honor the show's creator, Stephen Hillenburg, who died in November. Maroon 5, the halftime performer Sunday, teased a "Spongebob" cameo and delivered a brief reference to the "Band Geeks" episode.

Dallas has long played "Sweet Victory" after home victories, which made its appearance during its game against the Minnesota Wild on Friday so perfect. The video, which featurwa Spongebob, Squidward and Patrick performing the song at American Airlines Center with a cameo from goalie Ben Bishop, delighted fans both at the game and online.

The Stars even provided a sweet victory of their own, sending Dallas fans home with a 3-1 win against the Wild.
