Beautiful Chris Nilan goal

Posted: November 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

Okay so we’re all totally bummed out about the lack of hockey. So just to cheer you up, check out this totally amazing Chris Nilan goal from back in the day. He was one of the toughest guys but he could also actually play hockey, in sharp contrast to so many of today’s tough dudes. Watch his deke….and weep! Also check out this rocket of a pass from Larry Robinson that starts the play.

I was pretty rough on that Nilan doc The Last Gladiators and I stand by the notion that the film missed a great chance to weigh in on the whole issue of hockey goonery. But there is some totally fab classic Nilan footage to be seen in the film.
