Martin Straka Saves The Day!

New York 2, Pittspuke 1. OT YAY!!!
Jaromir Jagr scored a late 3rd period goal to force overtime; Henrik Lundqvist denied a penalty shot by the Pen's Jordan Staal:
(We interrupt this blogging for some cheering. *Henrik! Henrik! Henrik! Henrik!*) With just a few seconds left in OT, it was looking like the game would be decided by a shootout. But then Martin Straka saved the day for the Rangers- first stripping the puck from Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin who was about to walk in alone on goal, and then starting a rush the other way up the ice. He blew past one defender, head-manned the puck to Jagr in the Penguin zone; Jagr dished off to Michal Rozsival at the point. Meanwhile, Straka kept skating toward the net, accepting a perfect saucer pass on the tape of his stick- all Martin had to do was redirect the biscuit into the basket with 2.2 seconds left in overtime!! Diligent back checking combined with precision passing, that's what i'm talkin' about!!
