VIDEO: Adam Henrique confuses himself with awkward, silly goal celebration

Chris LaFrance / USA TODAY Sports

New Jersey Devils center Adam Henrique scored in the second period of Friday night's game between the Devils and the Edmonton Oilers to give his team the lead.

The goal was decent, but the celebration? Well, it was confused.

What exactly do you think Henrique is going for here:

We're of two minds. The sillier explanation is that Henrique went from playing air guitar with his stick to doing jubilant finger guns, just for the heck of it.

The less silly explanation is that Henrique nearly did the Artem Anisimov shotgun celebration, but thought better of it, did the finger guns thing, then made a point of holstering his digital weaponry before being mobbed by teammate Steve Bernier.

You can decide for yourself though. It's open for interpretation.
