WJHC: Finland's Rasmus Ristolainen scores the Overtime Game Winner.



Finland's and Buffalo Sabres prospect defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen scores the game winning goal in overtime, to beat the Swedes. It kind of reminds me of the Sega style dipsy-doodle goal.

Buffalo Sabres: Mark Pysyk Goal. Butt goal.....



Wow! I have never seen anything like this. This is Wild. This is the description of the goal from the Buffalo Sabres site. You may never seen anything like this again.

Mark Pysyk, who was recalled from the American Hockey League on Monday afternoon, was credited with the game-winning goal when Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal knocked a loose puck out of the air and into goalie Mike Smith's hockey pants.

Smith slid backward into the net to prevent a rebound opportunity not knowing the puck was in his equipment. A review of the play confirmed the puck crossed the line.

NHL Hockey: George Gwozdecky to Become Tampa Bay Assistant

Tampa Bay's previous alternate logo (1992–2007...
Interesting development, Terry Frei an NHL hockey reporter from the Denver Dost is reporting that former DU head coach George Gwozdecky will become an assistant coach with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Actually, I find it surprising since Gwozdecky never played in the NHL.
Terry Frei, Denver Post --- Former University of Denver hockey coach George Gwozdecky has agreed to become an assistant coach with the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning, and arring unexpected last-minute snags, an announcement of his hiring will come soon, two college hockey sources confirmed Thursday.

Gwozdecky's firing after 19 seasons at DU — a stint that included back-to-back NCAA championships in 2004 and 2005 — generated controversy last spring, and he since had turned down an opportunity to be the head coach at Alabama-Huntsville. He had a year left on his contract at DU and was expected to sit out the 2013-14 season while waiting to see what other jobs might open on the collegiate level.

But the Lightning will bring in Gwozdecky to work under new head coach Jon Cooper, promoted after three seasons as head coach of Tampa Bay's American Hockey League farm club. Gwozdecky will join Rick Bowness, a veteran assistant who has had several stints as an NHL head coach, on Cooper's staff.
