It was great hockey last night shown by many teams fighting for their playoffs spots and positions. Among all I don't want you to miss some quick facts such as:
It was beauty-to-watch diving pass by Martin St Louis and crisp snapshot by Steven Stamkos. Too fast, too hard for Jose Theodore to stop. The Blog wants to congratulate Steven Stamkos of Tampa Bay Lightings who set a Tampa Bay record for rookies with his 22nd goal to make it 1-0 just 36 seconds into the game. Previous one was held by Brad Richards, who scored 21 goals during his rookie season in 2000-01. I believe this kid has a long star hockey journey in front of him for many, many years. Way to go, Steve!
The famous NHL referee Don Koharski served his final game, ending a 32-year NHL career. He was congratulated by Tampa and Washington players who shook hands with Koharski after the Capitals vs. Lightings game ended.
Finally Carolina has its amazing winning 9-0 rout finished. The only pleasant thing is 40th goal of the season scored by Erik Staal. This late goal came with 27.1 seconds remaining and helped Carolina avoid its second shutout loss of the season. Congratulations to the Hurricanes star!
