Last night the NHL brought us 10 games, which predictably produced some fantastic highlights. Five in particular stood out – enjoy.

Three things are awesome in this video:

1) Max Lapierre tries to lift Clutterbuck up and put him in the bench. Never seen that before.

2) Cal Clutterbuck accidentally (I’m assuming) punches the linesman in the face.

3) Cal Clutterbuck accidentally (I’m assuming) punches the linesman in the face. Again.

Man, he got him pretty square didn’t he?

I don’t love goalies (AKA goal thieves), but I do think a good splits-save is pretty incredible. Probably because I can’t touch my toes and once hurt my groin swinging a golf club.

That’s absolutely stealing a goal for your team. As good as getting one at the other end.

I think letting this goal stand is pretty weak.

Sure, Briere “technically” kept slightly moving forward, but we’re not idiots. That’s a stop. He skated around the guy after a cup of coffee for Pete’s sake.

So basically you have to stop and start doing C-cut backwards for it to qualify as a stop.

Question: has any goal ever actually been disallowed because of the stop rule?

Cleverly-named clip: Guillaume Lat-undresse. I like it. Get it? He “undressed” the- oh forget it.

And last, Matt Cullen puts himself at a bad angle to the net and Schneider looks to have things well covered. Nope.

If this blog were called “Forehand Shelf” we might have to put that one up for an award.
