Hemsky goal

By Darian Somers

Ottawa’s Ales Hemsky made three Tampa Bay Lightning players look silly with his goal in the second period on Thursday night.

First was defenseman Radko Gudas, who Hemsky burned with a behind-the-back, through-the-legs deke. Then he cut in and walked right past blueliner Matt Carle, and finally, goaltender Ben Bishop could do little more than watch as Hemsky effortlessly shot the puck into the wide open net.

    An annotated guide to this quiet morning’s must-read hockey stories:

    • So there are rumors that Jaromir Jagr will sign with the Devils. Hey, we’ve all seen two desperate people hook up at the bar at closing time, so this wouldn’t be a surprise if it happened. It just seems like a lousy decision for at least one of them.

    Roberto Luongo has to avoid the October swoon if he hopes to get a shot at Team Canada. That kind of hot start would be a blessing for a Vancouver team that’s used to him getting out of the blocks slowly…or would it?

    • Ben Kuzma lays out the road trip every Canucks fan should be on…well, short of Sochi, anyway.

    • The Flyers inked Sean Couturier to a bridge deal at a rock bottom price. Nice job by GM Paul Holmgren, who still has two more key forwards to get under contract and very little money to spend.

    • Now that the NHL has finally the Olympic deal, Kevin Allen has some thoughts on what Team USA could look like. Only name I disagree with is Cam Fowler. Still too unpredictable at this point in his career.
