We’ve all see some breakaways go horribly, horribly wrong in the past.
But sometimes one screws up, only to rebound quickly and turn a near-blunder into a nice-ish goal.
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert did that today, in what’s already being called the best/worst breakaway attempt of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
As you can see in the video above, Calvert gets a nice clean breakaway. As he attempts to first a wrist shot, he whiffs on the attempt but manages to corral the puck back, doing the whole spin-o-rama thing, and deposit the puck past Braden Holtby for his second goal of the game.
Sometimes it just all works out.
