Super sweet game-ending goal
I managed to wrestle the remote away from the Domestic Partner the other night to avoid watching another episode of "House Hunters" on HGTV. So instead of watching house porn -- and feeling even worse than I do about the decrepit state of my slob-pit domicile -- I caught the excellent overtime between Denver and the University of North Dakota.
The awesome goal above by Matt Frittin ended the game. Watch what he does, hockey enthusiasts: picks up the puck at his own end of the ice, curls around to pick up speed, skates through four defenders and hangs onto the puck, passes it back to his D, who then passes it to a guy camped by the crease. S-W-E-E-T!
Frittin, by the way, is Canadian-born. He's a Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick
