OHHHHNOOOOEEEESSSSS! WhY dindt HOLLAND get ANYTHING FOR HIM!??!?!
He scored. Big whoop. How many players get dealt/picked up/etc. and then go on in their first game to score.
It happens... it's supposed to. Players score goals in this game.
Also, it's how waivers work... Player gets waived, claimed, wants to make an impression on his new team, really goes out and hustles and scores in his first game. (Not to say that Nesty didn't work hard here or want to make an impression.)
As far as the goal goes was it an Amazing goal? No. Beautiful goal? No. Spectacular goal? No.
It was a solid, hard working goal that is almost a bit flukey/soft... and I'm trying to give Nestrasil as much credit as possible... but this was the third goal Berra gave up in the first period. He was immediately pulled and commentators said that Berra had looked "shaky from the start"
(yes, I was flipping channels on CenterIce because the Wings were having such a wonderful outing last night.)
