Valtteri Filppula, Henrick Zetterberg

Video: Zetterberg’s sweet sauce


Here’s the scene: the player was questionable before a game. Not only did Henrik Zetterberg make it onto the ice—he dealt a sweet saucer pass over a defenseman, and onto a teammate’s stick for a highlight goal. Obviously, that’s the kind of thing we’re into around here at PHT.

Check out Henrik Zetterberg’s beautiful pass and Valtteri Filppula’s good fortune of playing on the same team as Z.

Philadelphia Flyers v Boston Bruins - Game Four

Sometimes the 82-game regular season can produce games that just blend into one another. Other times, there are games like the Lightning’s 2-1 overtime win that have everything from chess-like strategy to OT game winners. On Tuesday night, there may not have been fireworks on the scoreboard, but Steve Downie and Braydon Coburn did their best to light up the crowd for a few minutes.

It’s been a busy day for Coburn. This morning he signed a 4-year contract extension with the Flyers. Then he was asked to hold the puck and just stand in his own zone while the Lightning waited in the neutral zone. Finally, he dropped the gloves, helmet, and visor as he danced with Lightning pest Steve Downie. At what point did Downie start questioning his decision to fight a man that is six inches taller and 30 pounds heavier?

The only way this could have been a fair fight is if it were Aaron Downey.
