What a day! Sid scores from this position — and it isn't close to NHL's best highlight
Wednesday got off to a fun start with a head-scratching beef between teams, and ended with an own-goal, a goal from one knee . . . and maybe the season's best pass and save.
What kind of day was it in the NHL on Wednesday? Well, the face of the NHL scored his most impressive goal of the season and it didn't crack the top three highlights . . . so pretty good day, eh?
First the day got off to quite the fun start for a Stanley Cup Final MVP.
When the Florida Panthers took the ice at Vancouver on Tuesday night, the crowd apparently honored Panthers goalie Tim Thomas with a chant. The odd thing about it, though, was that the last time Thomas was in Vancouver, he was winning the Conn Smythe Trophy after the Boston Bruins beat the Canucks to win that other trophy.
"THOOOOMAS, THOOOOOMAS, THOOOOOOMAS" #Canucks fans welcoming Tim Thomas back to Rogers Arena...
For the record, Thomas and the Panthers beat the Canucks again, 3-2 in overtime — and next play at Edmonton on Thursday. Perhaps the Oilers were trying to soften Thomas up with flattery before the game.
