Last night, we all witnessed something great. When you think of penalty shots, you think of the Sidney Crosby’s, the Stamkos’s, the Patrick Kane’s of the world. Not anymore. After last night dangle, Shawn Thornton can now add his name to that list. With a beautiful drag and a backhand up stairs, Thornton tied the game up on one of the best penalty shots from an unlikely source in the history of the NHL.
After practices, Thornton practices his moves on Tuukka. It paid off.
