Blue Jackets’ Matt Calvert scores unusual breakaway goal
We’ve all see some breakaways go horribly, horribly wrong in the past.
But sometimes one screws up, only to rebound quickly and turn a near-blunder into a nice-ish goal.
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Calvert did that today, in what’s already being called the best/worst breakaway attempt of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
As you can see in the video above, Calvert gets a nice clean breakaway. As he attempts to first a wrist shot, he whiffs on the attempt but manages to corral the puck back, doing the whole spin-o-rama thing, and deposit the puck past Braden Holtby for his second goal of the game.
Sometimes it just all works out.
