so, that game last night

Okay, offense is dying, penalties are being called at historic lows, but as long as we still have Mike Smith in the NHL, there's still entertainment value to be had. Because Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith, ongoing student of the butt goal in all its forms, scored an own goal last night off Brandon Sutter's butt:

It's just a really terrible attempt at clearing the puck by Smith, and yet it's so wonderful. My favorite part is definitely Sutter turning around, seeing the puck in the net, and going, "Oh yay! Goal for us!" Him standing there flat-footed with his arms in the air: best.

Post-Gazette David Molinari was on the scene after the game, and he reports, Sutter, on Mike Smith's clearing attempt that hit his rear end and landed in the Arizona net: "That’s my touch around the net."

Or his tushy. Whichever.

I am SO GLAD WE GOT THIS GOAL, and that Sutter got this goal. From a game point of view, yes, dead offence, dumb luck, oops.

But from a Brandon Sutter point of view????? This is the ultimate in feel-good occurrences. He is so low-key pleased with himself, I did all the laughing for him. And I did so much laughing, let me tell you.

Who says Sidney Crosby has all the booty toughness, now, eh??

Oh gosh, the quote gets better: "I turned because I didn't want to take it in the face and it hit me right in the rear end," Sutter said. "I've never had one of those before. That's patience around the net right there. That's my touch around the net."

He is his uncle's nephew, I think.
