The Call Of Danny Dekeyser's Own Goal Contained The Most Overused Cliche In Hockey
Love it. Absolutely love it. Danny Dekeyser may have misguided a puck right into his own damn net due to a complete and total whiff, but really - it wasn’t even his fault. No sir. That hilarious lowlight was just an example of the percentages working themselves out. You think the Tampa Bay Lightning spent all that damn time taking bad angled shots during practice because they didn’t expect an opponent to slam home a poorly played rebound for them? “Anything can happen when you throw the puck on net“ isn’t just some empty phrase that coaches use to inspire teams that are having a hard time creating actual scoring chances, it’s a legitimate strategy that’s guaranteed to work 12% of the time, every time. Danny Dekeyser wasn’t a victim of his questionable hand-eye coordination, he was the victim of a flawless game plan. Your first instinct might be to laugh at the guy whose mistake basically encapsulated the Red Wings first non-playoff season in a quarter of a century, but you really should be applauding the team that made his ill-timed one-timer possible by following the long ballyhooed philosophy of throwing a lot of shit against the wall and hoping some miraculously sticks.
