Maxim Lapierre scored the game-winner tonight in Game Six of the Montreal-Pittsburgh series, and he did so in pretty spectacular fashion considering his agitating, checking role on the team. It wasn't a dispy-doodle, spin-o-rama, ballet-on-ice goal, but it will certainly be high on the list of Lapierre's highlight reel goals. Here's a look at it.
My question is simple: great goal, or were we witness to some porous defence played by Alex Goligoski and Jordan Leopold? Granted, the Penguins had their fifth and sixth defencemen out on the ice, but I'm leaning heavily towards some brutal defensive play by the two Penguins on the eventual game-winning goal.
Have at it, kids. Good goal or brutal defence?
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
