So, during the second period of tonight’s game against the Canadiens, this happened.
Yes sir! That would be noted sniper Brendan Smith beating Carey Price on a breakaway. And the beautiful thing is that he pulled off a great move. Who ever would’ve believed Brendan Smith could go deke and then backhand, top shelf on Price?!?!?!?!
It’s worth one more look:
Come get your jockstrap off the ice Mr. Price.
Kudos to Smith, who’s been invaluable to this team. The goal celly was laugh at loud funny. He whooped it up and stuck out his tongue headed towards the Rangers bench.
Good for him! He deserves it.
