    Just watched a great hockey game on ESPN2. The Phoenix Coyotes and the Chicago Blackhawks skated to a 0-0 tie in overtime.
    Leighton (CHI) and Bierk (PHO) put on a goaltending clinic! Some great shots on goal were knocked down with acrobatic skill displayed by both men.

    It looked like the refs intentionally left their whistles in their pockets and let the two teams skate it out. Quite a few minors could have been called, but instead the zebras let the flow of the game progress.

    All in all, a very enjoyable game to watch!! :thumbsup:

    Tomorrow's game: The Mighty Ducks vs. The Avalanche (9 Eastern, 6 Pacific)

    Man, when I saw the thread title, I thought the main man will be ripping it up in my fantasy pool. Who the hell is Leighton?

    Man, I wish I watched this game. :(

    Reminds me of Mike Richter's debut. New Year's Day exhibition game against the Riga Stars (Latvia SSR) in 1990. I was there live too and I was rooting for the Stars but Richter was standing on his head and the score could have been 20-2 if not for his acrobatics.
