Danny Briere Totally Performed Luis Mendoza’s Mighty Ducks Move in the Shootout

Kyle Scott - November 3, 2011

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.

And this little slice of awesome:

    and that’s the only way the Flyers score in a shootout. Maybe they should practice this.

    How many millieseconds does it need to be for it to count as a stop?
    Anyways, tomorrow’s blog should be titled “Morning Puck: Blowing Leads Edition”
    Lazy, stoopid, and arse-headed turnovers in the D-Zone again led to too many Devils goals. Without that Flyers should have had the win even with being out-shot by the Devils. http://youtu.be/XhI0OVs_zj0

    The rule is that the puck must stay in motion. And it did. No rule regarding the player’s skates stopping.

    BTW, How many F*cking Ducks movies were there? Wasn’t one of them bad enough?
    Got that Hollywood? More “Slap Shot” and “Youngblood”, less “Mitey Ducks”!

    The most impressive part of Luis Mendoza’s breakaway goal was how he switched “handedess” multiple times, eventually banging home the goal while shooting left handed. However, he clearly skates faster and pulls away from defenders more quickly while holding the stick righty.

    As much as I’m disappointed that the Flyers couldn’t hold it together last night, this was one of the best posts I’ve ever seen on this website.
    Fantastic work on either making or finding the History will be made video!

    Ron Shelly, really?!? Who hates Goldberg?! He rocks flyers stuff throughout the whole flick!

  • Jimbo Thompson November 4, 2011 at 8:44 am

    The only part that was cool was when the rich asshole paid for all new equipment. The best hockey movie ever was Youngblood when they shaved Rob Lowe’s nutsack….yummy

    Jimbo, the best part of Youngblood is where he shags* his gal:
    I bet she’s somebody that Ron Noel WON’T fuck, that miserable wanker.
    *: That serves as a warning for all of those morons who get offended by a female’s nakeditiyty.

  • Iron Balls McGinty November 4, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Ah Shyte, in Youngblood I forgot the redhead Miss McGill. Not nude but still very sexy. You may think she was too old or maybe a “MILF” but she’s still very yung-n-hot (& sexperienced) to me:
