Ryan Spooner, Riley Spoonman, The Utensil. He has many names, but they all have a common denominator: the name of a man who broke his slump.

Well, the Panthers proceeded to tie the game at 1. I thought at first glance the goal was scored by Vincent Trocheck, but I was sadly, painfully mistaken. The goal was scored by someone who gave us the Pride of Dorchester (tm), someone who scored the shootout goal against the Bolts a couple of seasons ago. Someone who gave us one of the most iconic tweets Hockey Twitter has seen.

And indeed that period was.
But my eyes did not deceive me in the twelve minutes that followed. Vincent Trocheck did, indeed, score with a minute and 14 seconds left in the period, leaving the Bruins trailing going into the third.
Maybe this time my watery eyes ARE from cats.
