WATCH THIS SPACE

i will re-post later, with the youtube clip of mats sundin's shorthanded goal from tonight's game against the 'hawks. it's not so much that sundin's goal was outstanding, as much as andrei zyuzin tripping over his own feet (and subsequently giving away the puck on his own blueline) was poetic. absolutely pure classic zyuzin....

i would have embeded the video here, but apparently NHL.com doesn't know how to use HTML either....

UPDATE**** it's under review but it is decidedly possible that the leafs' second goal went in off of zyuzin's stick... yep. it was an own goal by the unlucky russian, credited to a pinching and crashing kaberle (aka: the anti-zyuzin).

sure, it could be just that he's having a really really really really bad game, but i can't help but wonder if he is just this bad, untelevised, every night... and then i remember that he is.

Yup, he really is. I was curious (since Chicago is actually winning) to see how ol' Andrea was doing. I looked up the stats and guess who is on the bottom of the barrel in terms of +/- on that team?

What a horrible player.

I just had a mental image of Jacques Lemaire, the year before, gleefully rubbing his hands as he thought of Zyuzin working for a divisional rival, no less...

He may be a loser, but zyuzer still scored the goal that started the 6-4 comeback. I guess he balanced it out by going -3 though
