Twitter up in arms with NHL's new digital accuracy shooting fail

Sometimes, new isn't always better.

The NHL unveiled a new digital product for the shooting accuracy contest at the skills competition on Friday night, and it's safe to say it didn't go quite as planned.

Florida Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau was credited for hitting a target he clearly missed.

On the flip side, St. Louis Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo may have gotten shafted.

There was also a lengthy delay after Red Wings forward Tyler Bertuzzi caused the device to malfunction. From this angle, it's also clear fans sitting behind the net had an obstructed view of the contest.

It looks like Twitter prefers the old, styrofoam targets.

Carolina Hurricanes blue-liner Jaccob Slavin won the event by hitting all five targets in 9.505 seconds.
