The Caps stink right now, so we’re gonna find our joy wherever we can. Today we find it in ex-Cap Mike Knuble, who scored his first goal as a Philadelphia Flyer over the weekend. You’ll never guess how he did it.
Crash the net.
Knuble is playing on the fourth line, or at least he will until Laviolette realizes how good he’d be for Giroux. Here Knuble is on the forecheck, grinding it out. All of a sudden: turnover. Kanoobs grabs the puck and heads right for the net for the wraparound.
Knuble has one goal and one assist in five games. He’s averaging 14 minutes of ice. His line has some awful PDO, too, so I’d expect some big things from them before long.
Happy trails, Mike. Thanks for blowing up the Canes for us.
