Adam Burish blocks the attempted shot of Oliver Ekman-Larsson, who then seems to carry on to give Burish a little extra somethin’-somethin’, then…I dunno, gets tangled in a web of confusion, I guess. And here’s what you end up with:
I assume that if you’re the type who reads hockey blogs, you’ve also given Twitter a go. If you haven’t, get your s**t together and do it.
