Thirty-year-old David Leggio has never made the big show—but you don't spend that long in the minor leagues without learning a few tricks. In a game yesterday, the netminder for the AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers saw his team turn the puck over at center ice, so he immediately toppled his own net to stop play.
The officials chose to award a penalty shot rather than give visiting Springfield a man-advantage, and I bet that was fine with Leggio. Instead of a 2-on-0, he merely had to face a 1-on-0—and he sent it wide with a pad save.
The Sound Tigers would lose the game 4-3, but that's not the point.
