We found proof of that during the Edmonton Oilers -Philadelphia Flyers game this afternoon.
Hemsky has sick, sick hands. Marty Biron looked like a pee-wee goaltender.
Then he does it again. Two highlight reel goals in one game....that's too much.
The sexy pick for "highlight reel goal of the night" is probably Ilya Kovalchuk's goal.
Not for us.
We're sticking with Hemsky's first two of the year as the two best goals of the night.
The Atlanta Thrashers - Florida Panthers game was a little crazy. Both teams were making mistakes and giving the other team odd-man-rushes and taking stupid penalities.
Olesz went all Mark-Eaton on the puck in the crease.
Bob Errey would have been proud of Rostislav Olesz and his back-checking. He skated straight down the middle of the ice, made a bee-line to the net.
We've never seen someone work harder to try for an empty-netter than Ilya Kovalchuk.
And he has like five goals, unlike Jordan Staal who had none until last night.
Thank you, Malkin.
