Video of the Day: Gaborik Soars


 

[Editor's Note: Bumped to the Front Page in lieu of an official video of the day]

In what has become my source of instant happiness and frippery, today's video of the day takes us back to a simpler time: I was just in high school, the Red Wings were having <i>yet another</i> great season, and as we would soon find out later that spring, we would bear witness to a Stanley Cup win.

Today's video celebrates that gaiety that should accompany all of us as much as possible in our lives. In a rare instance that a forward blows by Nicklas Lidstrom, Marian Gaborik receives a breakaway pass from some guy that I cannot identify in the video to save my life. Keeping his head down and the puck on his stick, Gaborik streaks into an on-rushing Dominik Hasek, who came very far out of his net to try to knock the puck away from Gaborik rather than try to make a save on the breakaway. I had never seen a play like this before this instance, so I don't really know if Hasek should have been assessed a penalty, nor do I know if the rulebook has another to say about this specific play. All I know is that (especially because Gaborik wasn't injured) I will be laughing at this play for the rest of my life.
