A discovered glitch in EA Sports’ popular NHL 13 video game ups the awesome in a high-flying if science-defying way.
As noticed by The Nosebleeds.com, the so-called “Hercules Check” allows the gamer to send his opponent flying all the way into the stands or into the bench — at coach’s eye level, no less — if he delivers a hip-check while making a line change.
Watch the explanation below. Fittingly, the hitters in the glitch demonstration include Zdeno Chara and Shea Weber. Among the airborne? Sidney Crosby and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
