Whatever happened to the category "Best Goal Scored By A Guy Who Just Found Out That He Got A Really Good Job.”???
Was the goal scored tonight better than the goal scored last week? Look at that hit! Is it better than the one from last month?
Four straight losses have messed with the plan. So, we’ve got some new categories.
WORST GOAL OF THE YEAR
Leafs’ Matt Frattin vs Ryan Miller (Leafs at Sabres, 1/29/13)
With seconds left in overtime against the stupid Leafs, Jordan Leopold gets smoked and Ryan Miller has no answer. Sabres lose 4-3.
WORST RJ GOAL CALL OF THE YEAR
Mikhail Grigorenko’s first NHL goal (Leafs at Sabres, 1/29/13)
Shot. They score. Dribbled into the net from behind and the Buffalo Sabres have managed to come back and tie this game. And they wanted the guy to get it and the guy that got it was the fella who was just signed to the NHL for a season earlier today, confirmed, Mikhail Grigorenko.
20 seconds after the puck went in, RJ let us know who scored. But, hey, it was better than his discussion of how much time the Sabres would have left to tie the game after the Leafs had already won it in overtime.
MOST DEFLATING LOSS OF THE YEAR
Leafs 4, Sabres 3 (OT) 1/29/13
There were some cool stats.
- Thomas Vanek recorded his 457th career point and moved past Miroslav Satan for 10th-most points in Sabres history.
- Jason Pominville scored the 179th goal of his career, passing Phil Housley for 12th-most in Sabres history.
