Everyone’s favorite enforcer, Paul Bissonnette, is known for his Twitter antics off the ice and fighting ability on it. When Bissonnette scores, teammates and fans take a little more enjoyment in the goal because it happens so rarely. But, the goal Bissonnette scored nine months ago today was much more than that; it was a game winner.
In the second period of a 2-2 game against the Buffalo Sabres, Phoenix Coyotes forward Kyle Chipchura took a shot at the net that was blocked by the leg of Sabres defenseman Andrej Sekera. Bissonnette, skating up the ice, swept the rolling puck under Buffalo goaltender Jonas Enroth to make the game 3-2 Coyotes. (The goal can be watched in all its glory here.) The Coyotes would go on to win the game 4-2.
