Oh, Tomas Hertl of the San Jose Sharks, what have you started? Three days ago, Hertl scored on a between-the-legs shot in a blowout victory over the New York Rangers. Now, after all the ridicule that the Sharks' rookie forward went through, another player has scored on the same type of attempt.
Midway through the first period of last night's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Sabres’ Thomas Vanek deflected a pass and got the puck past goalie Sergei Bobrovsky by taking a, you guessed it, between-the-legs shot. Even though it wasn't as impressive as Hertl's play, it does show us that there may be a trend going on. Hey, we're all for it over here, but we are also sure opposing teams are going to be real pissed if this continues, so tread lightly, guys.
