Video: Stars’ Eakin scores on penalty shot in overtime

Kyle Turris’ overtime-clincher was probably the most important goal of Saturday, at least as of this writing, but Dallas Stars forward Cody Eakin’s tally would require the most initials.

Eakin’s game-winning goal wasn’t just a GWG on Saturday. He gave the Dallas Stars a 4-3 OT win on a penalty shot, so that would make it a PSOTGWG, right? (Or would it be an OTPSGWG?)

Anyway, it was a cool moment, and it came against star Nashville Predators goalie, too:

The Stars remain a ludicrously long shot to make the playoffs (if they’re not already eliminated by some minor tiebreaker), but they could be quite the spoiler threat in the final week. Just ask the Preds.
