Hey remember that time Strome and Bailey embarrassed Marty on back to back shootout spin goals for the win? No? Well that’s cool cuz YouTube exists:
That was a cool day. Unfortunately we won’t have the privilege of seeing any of these dope moves going further. From the NHL:
Rule 24 – Penalty Shot
The ‘Spin-O-Rama’ move, as described in Section 24.2 of the 2013-14 NHL Rule Book, will no longer be permitted either in Penalty Shot situations or in the Shootout.
Sucks. Cry more about it, goalies. NHL apparently wants to protect the ‘tenders from gettin their feelings hurt now in addition to constant protection from injury. Here’s my question: is it still legal on a regular break away? I NEED to see someone score that way on opening night. Preferably against Schneider.
Like 6 years ago or so when Jason Blake beat the Devils and Scott Clemenson on the same move in Toronto legit the next day John Madden came into my former place of business and i asked him how he felt about it to which he replied, ” Sick move. Whatever he can do for the win.” He loved to elaborate.
I guess less highlights are cool. Bettman doing it big per usual.
