Well folks. It’s only Game 1 and already there’s some passion in the fans. Brayden Schenn scored a first period goal in Pittsburgh off his skate to move the St. Louis Blues into a questionable 1-1 tie.
My immediate thought before the review even happened was good goal. I tweeted this:
Other fans weren’t being so care free about it.
This might be the most interesting take of all.
It also sparked a fun conversation about the kicking rule in general.
It never ceases to amaze me the intelligence of the “average” hockey fan, and the sheer number of tweets this play ended up drawing shows hockey fandom is alive and well in Pittsburgh.
