When Matt Hendricks skated out to center ice for the shootout at TD Garden Thursday night, several reporters in the media workroom asked ”Who?”Apparently there are still some NHL cities unfamiliar with Hendricks’s patented shootout move.
It’s tough to imagine the Bruins and their faithful will forget Hendricks and his kick-start shootout tally now, though, after they watched him turn defending Vezina Trophy winner Tim Thomas inside-out.
“I bit on his fake shot and heel picked,” Thomas said. “It was ugly.”
(RMNB has a few click-worthy GIFs of Thomas from the shootout and post-game as well.)
