Ales Hemsky Scores Highlight Reel Goal! (Video)


Last night the Ottawa Senators faced off against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa. This was the third of four match-ups between the two teams this season, the Lightning winning two out of three – one shootout win, one regulation win. It was the Lightning who ended up winning last night, but it was Ales Hemsky who stole the show! This is a ridiculous highlight, Hemsky makes a fool out of the Lightning defense, and former Ottawa goaltender Ben Bishop. The stage: it was near the end of the second period, Senators down by one goal, enter Ales Hemsky…

Hemsky was recently acquired by the Senators, and now everyone knows why (not that it was a bad move in the first place)! The 30 year old played well in Edmonton, but never truly excelled as an Oiler. Since being in Ottawa, Hemsky has played in seven games, scoring twice, and adding six assists. That is above a point a game average, not a bad start in Ottawa!

The Senators and the Lightning are matched-up one more time this season, the game will be played in Tampa Bay on the 24th – just three days from now.
