Montreal Canadiens goaltender Peter Budaj must have been in a giving mood Wednesday as he donated to Vinny Lecavalier’s goal scoring fund. Lecavalier misplayed a pass from a teammate along the right wing and the puck slid into the Canadiens’ zone. Budaj skated out to the left face-off circle to play it and play it he did. He served the puck up on a silver platter like a waitress with cocktail weenies.
All Lecavalier had to do was not perish and the puck was going into the net. The goal didn’t really matter though as Montreal went on to beat Tampa Bay 5-2. The silver lining in all of this is that Budaj has a little tax write-off come 2013.
