The Panthers’ Richard Zednik scored what turned out to be the game-winning goal by leaping over the Islanders’ Brendan Witt, then sliding the puck into the net — a series of actions that are apparently not easy to do while on ice skates. Total Pro Sports is calling it the “goal of the year,” which makes it approximately the tenth goal of the year in the year’s first 37 days.
In a related story, Richard Zednik is the same guy who just a year ago almost died on the ice after he got his THROAT SLASHED WITH A SKATE!!!! YEAHHHHHH!!!!! I mean, uh, it was a terrible accident. Glad to see him doing so well.
