It was quite a move, and I watched it somewhat confused and in disbelief. "Ahh..what happened? did the puck go in the net...? Until the replay made it all clear.
The officials needed to be sure that Grandlund's stick was no higher than the cross bar. but as the puck was stuffed into the upper netting....well, it must have come from below ;-)
As kids, we used to fantasize and "practice" "magic moves" like that at the rinks playing "shinny", and even "dry land" shooting practices off waxed bits of plywood in someones garage.
Street corner stuff.
I don't know if I should be impressed at how long a time, or how short a time. it took to make it to a big league event. Grandlund is 19....he will be fun to watch.....
And then I couldn't find yesterday's final between Svenska and Suomi anywhere on the TV.
Poker yes, Soft ball yes, cycling yes. World's Ice Hokey Final? No.
TSN in Canada aired it at 4:30 EST
