Slap Shots

Only an idiot like Sean Avery would do something ridiculous enough that the NHL would need to impose a rule to prevent players from cheap antics to increase their overrated team's chance of scoring a goal.

Calgary would end up earning the extra point in the shootout:

A highlight from this game, and absolutely dirty play, was a well-executed toe-drag and snipe by Nikolai Zherdev for the game's first goal:

As pretty as it was, I'm not too happy as a coach watching Zherdev pull that move - if he fails, it's Breakaway City for the Flames.

I'm going to have to give the Snipe of the Night honors to Brad Richards and his lightning-quick release, leading the charge in the Stars' comeback win against the Blues:
