Pezzetta penalty goal: Here are some other memorable celebrations

Canadian forward Michael Pezzetta’s celebration, after scoring on penalties in a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabers on Monday, sparked conversation and he was named tough Dave “Tiger” Williams.

The latter is the initiator of the exuberant celebration that the KeyBank Center audience called Pezzetta. The two men also have one thing in common: They attract more attention with their fighting qualities and don’t have as much touch about opposing nets… well, almost. Because the Habs striker beat goalkeeper Eric Comrie with a powerful shot, which few observers expected. In the National League (NHL), he has 11 goals in 106 games.

Unaccustomed to being in the spotlight, Peseta imitated Dave “Tiger” Williams by positioning his stick like a cowboy, then amused the crowd by pointing to every corner of the ring. This is a nod to the former circuit player who did the same thing during a duel at the old Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto. On December 10, 1980, he made a triumphant return to Queen City, giving the Vancouver Canucks the lead in the third period with an 8-5 victory over his former team.

Here are some other special celebrations of the National Hockey League.

Bobby Orr

It is one of the most famous images in all of professional sports. The famous dive of Bobby Orr, author of the decisive goal in the 1970 Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues. To the cheers of the Boston Garden crowd, No. 4 lunges on his stomach after scoring the net, giving the Bruins their first title since the spring of 1941. In that famous sequence, a big thank you goes to Montreal defender Noel Picard, who fumbled the hero of the evening.

Theoren fluorine

Alberta’s rivalry has many episodes and one of the most memorable was the conclusion of Game 6 of the first-round series in 1991. Theoren Fleury, known for his speed, intercepted a rare bad pass from Mark Messier into the run to Grant Fuhr and scored in overtime. The Calgary Flames forward then went on a short “walk” from one end of the Edmonton arena to the other, to slide near the boards and receive congratulations from his family. Unfortunately for him, the Oilers got revenge by winning Game 7, also in overtime.

Mike Busey

Quebec, on January 24, 1981 against the Quebec Nordiques, became only the second player in NHL history to score 50 goals in their first 50 (or fewer) games of the season, the first being Maurice Richard. And the former glory of the New York Islanders highlighted it all in a big way, to applause from the fans gathered at the Nassau Coliseum. After feinting goaltender Ron Graham, Mike Bossy literally ran onto the ice, arms crossed, knowing he had just rewritten history.

Mike Foligno

Hockey fans today know brothers Nick and Marcus Foligno, but those who followed the NHL through the 1980s and 1990s remember their father, Mike, who can be recognized by his helmet, Stan Mikita. This one used to feed in a very specific way: it hopped with both feet onto the icy surface. Having played for the Detroit Red Wings, Buffalo Sabers, Toronto Maple Leafs and Florida Panthers, the forward has scored 355 times in 1,018 games.

Timo Celan

Here, we can see a preemptive gesture without the concerned manager knowing it at the time. Teemu Selanne went hunting ducks after beating Nordiques goaltender Stefan Fest, breaking the record for most goals scored by a rookie in a single season, on March 2, 1993. He did so brilliantly, under a hat-trick, that took his tally to 54; He finished the table with 76 goals en route to the Calder Cup. Yet spectators at the Winnipeg Jets arena still remember his catchphrase. Oddly enough, Finn eventually developed with the Anaheim Ducks.
