Leafs’ Mikhail Grabovski Scores With His Face (Video)
We have already seen Mikhail Grabovski of the Toronto Maple Leafs score one of the prettiest goals of the season. Now he may have the ugliest as well after heading home a goal during last night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
With the Leafs in dire need of wins as the season dwindles down and their playoff hopes diminish, desperate times have certainly called for desperate measures in Toronto. Never was that sense of desperation more evident than during the second period of last night’s game, as Grabovski used his face to deflect home a Dion Phaneuf point-shot on the power-play, which helped cut the Flyers lead to 2-1.
It was an inspiring show of sacrifice for a team in need of all the motivation they can get. Unfortunately, it was all for not as Grabovski’s Leafs were dealt a 3-2 loss to go along with his brand new shiner.
