Senators’ Ales Hemsky Dangles Lightning Defense for Awesome Goal (Video)
The Ottawa Senators were playing against the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, but it was the Senators’ forward Ales Hemsky who was moving faster than Lightning while maneuvering through their defense during his second period goal.
