Either way you slice it, really amazing. He's only 5'5". If anyone is wondering, the record for the fastest two goals are by Nels Stewart (Jan. 3, 1931) and Deron Quint (Dec. 15, 1995), both at 4 seconds.

Geez he is short. Pretty cool feat, though.

The guy was an absolute star at Boston College, but everyone doubted his NHL prospects due to his size.

Wouldn't doubt it, St.Louis is 5'6". Gionta is 5'7"

Roy Worters was 5'3" :hehe:

Pretty impressive.

I've sometimes wondered whether anyone will ever match Mosienko's record of 3 goals in 21 seconds.

Also, at 5'5, he's about the same height as Darren Pang.

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

1. Boston College has produced another short good athletes - Doug Flutie. I want to see him beside Chara ;) .
2. That was pretty incredible! What was record for 3 goals ... 21 seconds as someone else mentioned?

I love short players because I was always the shortest player in my team. :D

Another "Made in Michigan" kid, showing up big in the NHL. Good on him, no matter how big he makes Hudler look.

Holy crap, it looks like one of those Make a Wish grants where a little kid gets to play a game with the adults, haha.

Difference of opinion. I LOVE Rick Jeanneret calling games. I'm a big fan of the Sabres color guy Harry Neale too. My favorite announcing team of all time was Bob Cole and Harry Neale on HNIC.

How COOL would this be with YOUR favorite announcer?
