Put it in, Luis!!!!
Somewhere, Danny B's kids just nominated him for coolest dad in the world. Briere put on the brakes – hard – and weaved around Johan Hedberg for the Flyers' only shootout goal in their loss to the Devils. Officials reviewed the play, since you're not allowed to stop forward momentum, but eventually ruled it a goal, even though Danny did, um, stop.
Who cares? It was awesome!
The play had every element of Luis Mendoza's breakaway goal in D2: The Mighty Ducks. Hard stop, spray goalie, pause, put it in. The only thing missing was Gordon Bombay.
Full Mendoza clips after the jump.
