Black cat takes a quick shift on ice during Sharks-Predators playoff game

There’s no such thing as bad luck when the San Jose Sharks are playing as well as they are right meow.

A black cat scurried onto the SAP Center ice Friday night in San Jose and walked in front of the home Sharks bench prior to Game 1 of the Western Conference second round against the Nashville Predators.

The cat hopped on for its lone shift of the night through a door near the red line and skittered down ice before exiting through the Zamboni entrance along the goal line.

The Predators led, 1-0, entering the third period, prompting superstition to run wild that the little kitter had jinxed the home team. But the Sharks stormed back with five third-period goals, including two on the power play and two empty-netters, to send the Predators to the litter box in a 5-2 Sharks win.

Pop went the weasel and down went the Large Hadron Collider

GENEVA (AP) — It's one of the physics world's most complex machines, and it has been immobilized — temporarily — by a weasel.

Spokesman Arnaud Marsollier says the world's largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN outside of Geneva, has suspended operations because a weasel invaded a transformer that helps power the machine and set off an electrical outage on Friday.

Authorities say the incident was one of several small glitches that will delay plans to restart the $4.4 billion collider by a few days.

Marsollier says Friday that the weasel died — and little remains of it.
