Kesler Providing Hot Horse Action

Last night’s game winning goal was a beauty from Ryan Kesler, and I’ve included the video below.  But first, to quote Justin Bourne at PuckDaddy:

He took the puck directly at Shea Weber and Shane O’Brien, for crying out loud. I wouldn’t take the puck at Shea Weber without anything short of a gift basket and full body armour.

Round one versus the Chicago Blackhawks saw Kesler engaged in one of the more underrated playoff battles thus far, when Jonathan Toews (Selke nominee) went head-to-head with him (also a Selke nominee) and they Selke’d each other to death, combining for a grand total of no goals until the dying seconds of game seven when Toews put home a fantastic short-handed effort.

It was some hot horse-on-horse action.

 

By the way,  the best headline to come out of last night’s Vancouver win in Nashville has to be Derek Jory’s at Canucks.com:

“Smashville has been Keslerbombed”

Classic.

I know, I know… I suck.  I wasn’t able to get home in time (stupid effing 5pm games) and didn’t have time to post. Didn’t even get to start watching the thing till an hour after it started. I hate that!
