After the Winter Classic ended in dramatic fashion Thursday, Mike Green told reporters, “We were screaming so hard in the huddle I almost passed out. I could only imagine what the fans were doing.”
Now we know, thanks to Brouwer Ranger Ryan’s helmet camera.
In an undeniably prescient move, Ryan switched on his helmet cam as Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews headed to the penalty box for hooking in the game’s final minute. He would capture a moment of pure joy just seconds later, when Troy Brouwer picked up a loose puck in the left circle, loaded it into the Brouwitzer and shot it straight at poor Corey Crawford.
