The most talked-about goal in Boston was not scored by an NHLer,
but by a youth hockey player during "Mini One-on-One" at the Garden.

He did that on purpose, too.

The goalie was like whaaaaaaaaa?

@George,
It was particularly impressive about the eleventh time they showed it.

@joefromchicago,
I'm imagining someone watching the video and continually saying
"Wow, he did it AGAIN!"

@George,
I needed at least five replays to figure out what I was seeing. Then the rest of 'em I was trying to figure out how he scooped it like that. Velcro? Chewing gum?

Scooping up a puck with the curved blade of a hockey stick is actually not that difficult -- players will routinely pick up pucks with their sticks in order to hand the puck to refs and linesmen during games -- although scooping up a moving puck is rather more difficult. The real trick, though, is to spin around with the puck on the blade and then whip it into the net on the backhand. I wouldn't be surprised if that young man is also a lacrosse player.

I had the same thought. That was a lacrosse move.
