Glory for Sundin

The Toronto Maple Leafs just defeated the Calgary Flames at the Hangar. The score was 5-4 in overtime. A minute into overtime and the situation was dire as Darcy Tucker had just received a bogus penalty giving the Flames a power-play. Sundin took the puck away from a Flame inside his blueline and then skated down the left wing, over centre and then the Calgary blueline. He then wired a shot into the roof of the net from about 70 feet out. The Calgary goalie was overwhelmed by the shot which was about as perfect as a shot can be. The goal obviously won the game for the Leafs but it was a great personal moment for the Leafs' captain. The unassisted, short-handed, overtime game winner gave Sundin a hat-trick on the night and was the 500th goal of his career. He doesn't need me to tell him how to play but I do wish he would shoot more. I don't think anyone on the team has as good a shot as he does.
