As they say in baseball, a bleeder through the infield will show up as a line drive in the scorebook. This goal by Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will show up as a wicked wrist in the book…at least that’s how Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward will want it to appear.
Pacioretty will embellish the story and tell his grandkids that he scored from inside his team’s blue line. Except that his grandkids will be smart enough to YouTube it and then call their grandfather a liar.
But really, Max Pacioretty scored on Cam Ward from center ice Monday night and here it is. The goal put the cap on the game as Montreal won 3-0.
The most fun part about the goal – it’s Pacioretty’s first of the season.
