Ryan Callahan Gassed Then Stoked : Endurance and Hustle lead to Terrific Goal

Before the game that the Rangers played against the Capitals that took place on October 8th 2009, Rangers coach John Tortorella called Ryan Callahan " A Pro" and The Mouth couldn’t agree more.

Before the Big man began this wonderful video blog for us he was not the biggest Callahan supporter, he found Ryan small and streaky. Two things that bugged the heck out of him.

It’s takes a big man to admit he’s wrong and the Mouth is certainly is that and he takes back every negative thing he ever uttered about Ryan.

The penalty killing shift that is shown in the first part of clip is one of sacrifice, tenacity, skill and endurance. It really is an amazing series of plays, which includes two separate spoilers of Alexander Ovechkin Power Play shots the last of which results with a super Ryan Callahan goal.

The goal had come when Callahan had nothing left in the tank but hockey heart and that's what got it done..

The second part of the clip takes place just two minutes after Ryan’s tally and gives kudos to the Rangers third line. The hustle of both Artem Anisimov and Enver Lisin in the offensive zone is textbook, combined with a great finish by Ales Kotalik.

Kotalik ended up scoring a sweet goal , that made four Capitals on the ice look absolutely foolish in it’s wake.

  3. Thank you anon ! I appreciate the kind words and it always makes my day when somebody stumbles upon the site and likes what I do.

    Of Course DB maven is no stranger to my attempts at making him laugh and actually I kinda stole the bthat line from Sabre announcer Rick Jeanneret and then updated it with more of updated twist. Jeanneret says " where Mamma hides the cookies" I just changed it to where Mamma hides the prescription meds. All comedians steal !
