Below I have uploaded two videos. The 1st is Radim Vrbabta's goal last night. Vrbata now has two goals in two games. Fans here in British Columbia are starting to call him the "3rd twin" or "Radim Vrbata-Sedin" Only two other players in Canuck history have been able to play so effectively with the twins. The 1st being Anson Carter and the 2nd is Alex Burrows.
The next is a video of Ottawa Senator, David Legwand. A little fun fact: Legwand was the 1st player ever drafted by the Nashville Predators back in 1998. He played his entire career with the club until last year when he had a brief stint with the Detroit Red Wings and then signed with the Senators this past summer. As luck would have it Ottawa's 1st game of the season was against the Preds in Nashville. Legwand had a penalty called on him and went to the penalty box. After playing 956 games with the Preds (1/2 of those being in that arena) he accidentally skated into the wrong penalty box! It was a quick fix when he realized and went to the visiting team's box instead.
Until next time hockey fans! Everyone in Canada enjoy your turkey and everyone else, enjoy your Sunday!
