Chad LaRose’s impression of Mark Johnson

Carolina is up 2-0 at the second intermission, and it almost became 3-0.  Chad LaRose came as close to scoring a goal as you can.  With about two seconds left in the period, Dennis Seidenberg fired a shot from center ice that was stopped by Thomas.  The Bruins decided not to play to the buzzer, but Chad LaRose did.  The rebound kicked out to Sharpie, whose rebound chance hit the right post and rolled on edge along the goal line.  The ruling on the ice was no goal, and the Situation Room confirmed the call. 
As the play was under review, I was thinking “where have I seen that exact goal before?”.  Then it dawned on me.  Lake Placid, 1980.  End of period one, Miracle on Ice.  The exact same play.  Except that Mark Johnson buried his chance and Sharpie clanged the heavy metal.
