Former Q League MVP: "By Far My Best Goal Ever"

The final goal scored in yesterday’s 7-0 mauling by the Caps over the Flyers wasn’t the most important one, but it certainly was the most dramatic. Capitals’ center Mathieu Perreault gathered the puck near the Flyers’ blueline and proceeded to shred the entirety of Philadelphia’s on-ice personnel. Also bested by Perreault, seemingly, were all Flyers in the building, as well as 20 veterans back in Philadelphia. Then he undressed Flyers’ netminder Jeremy Duchesne, scored, and took 750 or so already euphoric Caps’ fans in Kettler and raised them out of their seats in delirium. Afterward, we asked Mathieu where the goal ranked among the most memorable he’d ever scored.

  2. Mike,
    We’ll be checking Youtube over the weekend, and perhaps the Caps themselves might edit footage of the game and post it. As soon as we find a source, we’ll get it up, promise.
