Spezza Becoming Special

from the Toronto Star,
If you haven't seen Jason Spezza's overtime goal Thursday night against the Montreal Canadiens, turn on your television to one of the all-sports networks, grab a seat and wait a couple of minutes. It will come. Goals such as that get played over and over. And afterwards, you will notice how your jaw is almost in your lap. What the hockey world witnessed two nights ago was not only a spectacular clutch goal by a dazzling young talent, but what could prove a major demarcation point for the Mississauga native and former prodigy. Years from now, we may look back at that goal and point to it as the moment Spezza became an NHL star. "I have goals and I want to be one of the best players in this league," Spezza said. "Hopefully, this year will be a kind of a coming-out party in that sense, that I can show people I can be the player that I've always thought I can be."
