Christian Ehrhoff Scores OT Goal Through Defeseman's Skate
Wow. Really all you can say here.
The Buffalo Sabres were down early in this game, but rallied to score twice in the second period, eventually forcing overtime against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Sabres and Leafs added another chapter to their wild 2013 rivalry.
But the whole game pales in comparison to what Buffalo blue liner Christian Ehrhoff was able to do just 32 seconds into overtime. With a waning power play, the Sabres won the face off and the puck squeaked out to Tyler Myers. Myers held and passed across to Ehrhoff, who drifted into the slot and ripped a low slap shot that found its way to the nylon. Impressive enough, sure, but watch what happens when the puck leaves Ehrhoff's stick.
Ohhhhh SNAP! And could James Reimer's have left that five-hole any wider open?
The Sabres earn points number 12 and 13 on the season with their sixth win, while the Leafs earn a point to tie the Montreal Canadiens for fourth place in the Atlantic. Montreal and Toronto will square off Saturday night to break the tie, while Buffalo goes into New Jersey to take on the Devils, who are 6-4-0 over their last 10 games.
