Well Yak City proved all his haters wrong last night showing all who cared to see that he can score with seconds left on the clock and keep from sliding across the ice in celebration. He stood there against the glass last night in Phoenix, having batted a puck out of the air with a little over a minute left on the clock in overtime, daring his team mates to come and hug him.
And hug him they did. Except Whitney who decided to punch out a Coyote.
Well played all around fellas.
