Giroux, Spezza Score Highlight Reel Goals
There was a full slate of NHL games Thursday night and there was no shortage of highlight reel goals.
Jason Spezza and Claude Giroux both made very strong bids for the goal of the year honor. Spezza was able to show off his smooth hands with a incredible move around Panthers defenseman Dylan Olsen before snapping it past goalie Scott Clemmensen. While it gave the Senators a 2-1 lead at the time, they were unable to hold on losing by a final of 4-2.
In a game which saw the Blue Jackets blow a 3-0 heading into the third period, Giroux was able to net two goals in the games final minute to give the Flyers a 5-4 victory. His game winner, with under two minutes to go, was just a thing of beauty. Giroux roofed a no look back hander from a near impossible angle for the game winner.
