Miroslav Satan Nominated For NHL Goal of the Year

Miroslav Satan (nhlsnipers.com)

The 2009-2010 Boston Bruins will be remembered for a lot of things: underwhelming performances and epic collapses, mostly. Still, that’s not to say the whole season was a waste. Exhibit A: Miroslav Satan.

Signed out of retirement in January, the 35-year-old Satan took his time getting his legs under him before kicking things up a notch in the playoffs, finishing with 10 points in 13 games, including the series-clinching goal in Game 6 against Buffalo in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Yet none were better than the goal he scored against Philadelphia in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, sneaking behind the defense and burying a beauty behind Flyers netminder Brian Boucher.

The goal was so nice, the NHL has decided to include it in their annual “Goal of the Year” tournament, pitting the crafty Slovak’s tally against a pretty goal from Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews from December.

Most Bruins fans would like to forget everything about this past season, but if you’d like to see a Bruin win something this year, go and vote now.
