Mondays here at BMR mean a look back at the best plays from the last week. During the regular season and throughout the playoffs, I'll be recapping the best videos from around the NHL during the last seven days. They might be fights, goals or hockey players posing as rockers. Anything, really. Kind of like what goes on here every day of the week.
Ah yes, the regular season is finally here. It doesn't quite feel like it, as most teams were still in pre-season mode this weekend, but it's here nonetheless. It feels awkward, new and exciting all at the same time. Kind of like high school, with the exception of the excitement.
Here's a look at the top plays from the past week.
3. Virtual Mike Komisarek scores greatest goal ever virtually scored.
So if you have ever searched for hockey videos on YouTube, you might notice that there are a crap ton of random NHL 09 highlights on there posted by, presumably, thirteen year-olds. Most are about as pointless to watch as, well, random crappy videos made by thirteen year-olds. This one, however, shows us one of the best goals ever scored. Or ever not scored in reality. What? Anyway, the video:
2. Sean Avery is not a fan of Don Cherry.
In an interview last week on CBC's "the Hour" with George Stromtoolongofalastnametofigureout Avery had some rather kind words for the HNIC commentator; "He's a staple as far as Canadian hockey goes. And I grew up watching Coach's Corner, and he serves a purpose. But he really does not know shit about hockey." I knew this was going to be a fun year in Dallas!
1. You've already seen it, but it's worth another look -- or three.
It's the hockey clip that has been all over the internet this week. Carey Price's stunning save has has garnered so much attention that even With Leather took notice. When they start mentioning hockey for reasons like this, and not just making stale 'hey, remember how nobody watches hockey' jokes then you know it's something special. Well, they still made those jokes but at least it wasn't for a bad reason.
