Here is Bryan Little's goal against the Blue Jackets tonight. Most people hadn't even got to their seats before the Jets were up 1-0 in this game.
Brian Engblom's idiotic commentary aside, that was a great individual effort by Little as he wound up in the neutral zone, used some great speed to enter the zone and split the defence, and Andrew Ladd fed him perfectly. It was the start of something great as the Jets prevailed 4-2 tonight over the Blue Jackets in which Evander Kane scored a pair of goals.
As an aside, when was the last time I wrote "Kane scored a pair of goals" when referring to Evander and not Patrick? No clue. It's been a while.
So who holds the record as described above? Set up by Vyacheslav Kozlov and Marc Savard, Robert Petrovicky scored on Sebastien Caron eight seconds into the game against Pittsburgh! He would add an assist late in the second period on an Ilya Kovalchuk goal, and the Thrashers would go on to win by a 7-4 score.
It just goes to show that scoring early often leads to wins!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
