Outdoor games aren’t boring after all! The Red Wings climbed back from a three-goal deficit in the Centennial Classic on Anthony Mantha’s buzzer-beater goal with just 1.1 seconds remaining.
Yes, it was exactly as close Demar Dotson Authentic Jersey as it sounds. Detroit was a mere heartbeat from another loss, and instead they tied the game 4-4 to draw overtime against the Maple Leafs.
The goal was Mantha’s second of Womens Charles Sims Jersey the game, and it almost wasn’t. The referees looked at goaltender interference on Frederik Andersen, but none was found.
The game went off without a hitch and on schedule despite a light rain at the beginning of the game and a few wonderful hiccups before puck drop. As the rain went away, the pace of the game picked up significantly.
Chicago, playing in its fifth outdoor NHL game, got on the board first. Artemi Panarin tossed a puck off the boards to Michal Kempny at the blue line, and the rookie fired the puck past Allen for the 1-0 lead.
It took St. Louis until midway through the second period to even the score. Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester drove deep into the Blackhawks’ zone and passed back in front of the net, where Patrik Berglund netted the game-tying goal.
Perhaps the weather conditions affected special teams, considering both teams went a combined 0 for 5 through the first two periods on the power play. That included a missed opportunity for Chicago when Blues forward Robby Fabbri got penalized for boarding late in the second period.
The daggers didn’t come until the final 10 minutes of regulation when Tarasenko buried the game-winning goal. Or, rather, the Blackhawks buried it for him.
