In case you missed it last night, Artem Anisimov scored a go-ahead, shorthanded goal during the second period in last night’s 3-2 shootout loss. Clearly excited to score a pretty goal, Anisimov dropped to his knee – simulating that of a sniper – and pumped a few shots directed at the Tampa Bay net. This enraged Bolts captain Vinny Lecavalier and the rest of the opposition on – and off – the ice and lead to a melee. The incident ended up giving the Lightning some life, and we all know how the game ended…
Here’s video of the celebration below.
