Senators player saves one goal, but then has another shot ricochet off his head into the net

Ryan Dzingel has two goals this evening. One for his team, the Ottawa Senators. The other? An accidental header goal off the shot of Maple Leaf forward Nazem Kadri.

Late in the second period of a 2-1 game for the Senators, Dzingel bailed out goaltender Craig Anderson with a stick stop on a slow rolling puck. Then seconds later, Kadri’s shot from behind the net careened off of Dzingel’s helmet and into the net, undoing all the good work he had done.

Unfortunately, Dzingel was in the wrong place at the right time for Ottawa. Luckily, Dzingel wasn’t injured on the play, as the puck seemed to hit him square in the side of the head.

Even so, a funky goal to tie the game for the Maple Leafs. Such is life.

Flyers vs. Rangers 2017 odds: New York looking for its sixth straight payout against the Flyers

The New York Rangers are a perfect 5-0 in their last five games against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Rangers hope to pick up a sixth straight win over their division rivals this Wednesday night in New York.

New York is a -165 home favorite on Wednesday at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The Flyers would pay +149 on a road upset.

Henrik Lundqvist made 36 saves in New York’s 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night, one night after shutting out the Detroit Red Wings with 21 saves on Sunday. Lundqvist has been uncharacteristically shaky this season, but if his recent form is a sign that he is back on track, it could spell bad news for opposing teams down the stretch.

The Rangers are having an excellent year on offense averaging 3.4 goals per game, and more consistency on the back end would make New York a legitimate contender this postseason.

Despite playing in the toughest division in the NHL this season, the Rangers are 7-2 in their last nine games against Metropolitan Division rivals per the OddsShark NHL Database.

Betting Line / Total: New York -165 / 5.5 Goals

Trend: New York is 5-0 in its last five games against Philadelphia.

Trend: The UNDER is 6-3-3 in the last 12 games between Philadelphia and New York.

Back in December, the Flyers ripped off a 10-game winning streak and looked to be well on their way to locking up a playoff spot. But since that run, Philadelphia has crashed back down to earth with a 4-9-3 record over its last 16 games with just one regulation win over that stretch.

Ranking 27th in the NHL in goals against with 3.1 per game, the Flyers can’t ever afford a night off on offense. Philadelphia has allowed four goals or more in five of its last six games.

Wednesday night’s total is set at 5.5 goals. The UNDER is 6-3-3 in the last 12 games between the Flyers and the Rangers.

The recent form of these two teams points to a sixth straight win over the Flyers for the Rangers this Wednesday. Steve Mason did have a strong performance in goal for Philadelphia last Sunday allowing only two goals on 38 shots, and he’ll need to stand on his head again in this one facing one of the league’s best offenses to give the Flyers a shot at the road upset.

Henrik Sedin lovingly teases Roberto Luongo after scoring his 1,000th point on him

Henrik Sedin’s latest milestone was straight out of a storybook.

The Vancouver Canucks captain entered Friday night’s game against the Florida Panthers just one point away from hitting the 1,000-point mark. It took him a while, but he did it.

Early in the second period, Henrik and his twin brother Daniel Sedin broke in on a 2-on-1. Daniel dished the puck to Henrik, who put it home to hit 1,000. How fitting is that?

Even more fitting: the goal came against goalie Roberto Luongo, who was the captain of the Canucks before Henrik, and a longtime teammate of the twins.

The little face-wash Henrik gave Luongo was adorable.

Henrik is the 85th player in NHL history to hit 1,000 points in his career.

Martin Jones stacks the pads in overtime on highlight reel glove grab

On a day of hockey where we already saw a pretty stretch save in Philadelphia, Martin Jones upped the bar in overtime.

With the Sharks and Coyotes tied 2-2 in overtime, Arizona got a 2-on-1 break down the ice with just seconds remaining in the frame. Shane Doan and Tobias Rieder looked to end it for the Coyotes, but Jones said no with a save for the ages.

Jones not only stacked the pads on Rieder, he caught the puck that was labeled for the top shelf in his glove.

To truly appreciate this save, let’s look at it from the behind-the-net camera.

Oh, wow.

Unfortunately, the Coyotes won the game in a shootout 3-2, but Jones’ save to keep the Sharks in the game is unforgettable.

Intense NHL ref is back to shout a fighting penalty to the crowd

Andrew Shaw and Torey Krug got into a fight during Sunday’s Bruins-Canadiens game, and both got penalized for it, but the best part of that fight was right after it. Referee Wes McCauley announced the call to the crowd, and he did it with such emphasis, like he was an announcer for Mortal Kombat.

And if McCauley doing his intense referee calls sounds familiar, it’s because he was a highlight last March, when he shouted “WE GOT A GOAL!” after a review.

DRAMATIC

DRAMATIC CALL.

This and that referee that screamed “fuck you” while his mic was still hot might be proof that the NHL secretly has the best referees in all of sports.
