In 631 regular-season games, he had only scored 11. Obviously, scoring goals is not what his game is all about.
That's why it was so shocking that he was the guy (on a team with so many great offensive talents) who scored the game-winning goal in overtime to get the Penguins into the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 4-3 win against the New York Islanders.
It was a rather innocent looking shot from the point, but there's no such thing as a bad shot in overtime. And those shots have seemed to have a way of finding their way into the net in this series. Especially when they were coming off the sticks of Penguins players.
