  1. Well, he certainly seemed excited about it!

  2. Looks like it deflects in off #26 so he shouldn’t get credit for the goal.

  3. I skimmed the post, but oh man Columbus Blue Jackets players aren’t even good in the KHL am I right?… now to go back and read the rest of the article.

  4. You skimmed 3 lines of text?

  5. The author could have also mentioned that Yakupov scored a second goal in this game and two more shootout goals.
