Alec Martinez’s game-winning goal, scored 5:47 into overtime on Sunday night, has sent
the Los Angeles Kings Jeff Schultz to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Sarge did not dress for the Los Angeles Kings in game seven last night, but he did make a brief five-second cameo at the very end of the game. It was special.
Watch as an animated Mr. Nasty (so much has changed) gives pats to the back to his teammates.
I dig the purple tie.
Then Sarge exits into darkness, not unlike the existential crisis I’m currently experiencing.
Schultz, who was picked 27th overall by the Washington Capitals in the 2004 NHL Draft, has beat the first overall draft pick that year, Alex Ovechkin, to the Finals. Fun fact: Schultz makes $9 million less than Ovi.
I know what you’re thinking. Will Mr. Nasty (and hopefully it’s his nickname) get his name on the Cup? Maybe.
Lol RT @TedStarkey: If Jeff Schultz gets in one of the Finals games, he gets his name on the Cup.

Please excuse me while I go chug some Pepto Bismol.
