It would have been the easiest high-sticking call to make, if it wasn’t from his own teammate.
Somehow, on Thursday night when the Dallas Stars squared off against the New York Islanders, Josh Bailey got John Tavares’ stick caught up under his visor.
Cody Eakin showed absolutely no remorse after running straight through Henrik Lundqvist who was out of his net to play the puck. The Dallas Stars forward showed no signs of slowing down and the collision that took place was absolutely massive!
King Henrik did come back into the game after going through concussion protocol.
If I were a goalie, the last thing I would want to see bearing down on me is Johnny Gaudreau leading the way on a two-man breakaway. Unfortunately for Kari Lehtonen, that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday night against the Calgary Flames.
Sidney Crosby is leading the league in scoring. Why? Because he’s just. too. good. Watch as he banks one off of Star’s goaltender Antti Niemi and proceeds to bat in his own rebound with unbelievable hand-eye coordination!
